Pippin Game Console
The fact that you’ve probably never heard of Apple’s first gaming console is evidence of how it went. Produced between 1996 and 1997, the Apple Pippin was a $599 “multimedia technology console.” And despite not meeting much commercial success, Apple still shipped 42,000 of the 100,000 produced.
As far as the name, a Pippin is actually a type of apple, which is a moniker scheme in the same vein as the Macintosh. That makes quite a bit of sense since the Pippin operating system was basically just an offshoot of the company’s Macintosh platform.
