Internet Archive lets you play one of the earliest computer games Space War! emulated in JavaScript in the browser.

The JSMESS emulator (a conversion of the larger MESS project) also contains a real-time portrayal of the lights and switches of a Digital PDP-1, as well as links to documentation and manuals for this $800,000 (2014 dollars) minicomputer.
