The 3DO hardware was designed by Dave Needle and R.J. Mical, both had designed the Commodore Amiga computer and the Atari Lynx handheld system. The design of the 3DO began from an outline on a restaurant napkin in 1989. Trip Hawkins was a long-time acquaintance of Needle and Mical and found that their design very closely fit his ideas for what he wanted in a video game console, so he decided to join them in the design, commenting "Rather than me start a brand new team and starting from scratch it just made a lot of sense to ... join forces with them and shape what they were doing into what I wanted it to be."
