Amiga Guru Meditation Error screen Wallpaper
The original Amiga concept was for a video game console, which could be turned into a computer. Early in the development of the system, the engineering team constructed a controller called the “Joyboard”, similar to a Wii Balance Board, and a simple game which detected movement on the Joyboard. The game involved the player sitting on the Joyboard, in a stereotypical cross-legged guru meditation position, and when the player did move, the game would announce their turn had ended on a ‘guru meditation error’. Although the Joyboard was dropped when the Amiga concept moved towards a personal computer, this in-house joke survived, making it into the AmigaOS as a sort of easter egg.
