1983, 12 years old – He Creates A Video Game All By Himself
At the age of ten, Elon got a Commodore VIC-20 computer and started learning coding in Basic. In 1983, at the age of twelve, he gave definite signs he was destined for paving new roads and making money. He created a video game that he named Blastar, which he subsequently sold to a PC magazine for $500. Not exactly enough to invest in real estate, but an amazing achievement nonetheless.
