Ralph Baer, the creator of the first home video game console, has passed away, Gamasutra reports.
He first developed Brown Box in 1966 and later he gave its licensed to Magnavox, and divulged as the name of Magnavox Odyssey which released in 1972. His first peripheral game was, the light gun, and the electronic memory game Simon.
Due to his efforts in Technology he also received the National Medal of Technology award by former American president George W. Bush In 2006. And many other honors due to his toil in gaming development. In 2008 he got game Developers Choice Pioneer Award also.
“Had I listened to all those people 40 years ago who was telling me to stop the nonsense or made remarks like ‘are you still screwing around with this stuff?” And hadn’t proceeded, we might all not be here today,” Baer said when he received his Pioneer Award. “Certain things might have been different.”
He died at the age of 92.
