Warren Robinett was the first person to create an easter egg in a computer game. His name and the credit for making the game “Adventure “on the Atari 2600 was never given to him as at the time Atari policy was to never credit to anyone. 

However the name Easter egg was was “coined around 1979 by Steve Wright, to describe a hidden message in the Atari video game Adventure, in reference to an Easter egg hunt.”

So, Warren Robinett created his own way of hiding his name and only through a specific process would his name appear thus creating the first Easter Egg in a computer game. It started an authentic, fun way for developers to create interesting challenges and tests for gamers that became a legacy.

When Tesla started, Elon Musk, a gaming enthusiast loved the easter egg idea and created many across the years that remain ever present today. Elon being a pop culture fan and a wicked sense of humour appealed to the nerd in all of us by creating with his team many easter eggs. 

Tesla has many and varied easter eggs, some in the cars, some in the app and all of them are fun and enjoyable to experience.
