Ralph Baer, video game inventor, who turns 90 years old this week

Ironic Sans: Inventor Portrait: Ralph Baer, video game inventor, who turns 90 years old this week.

Ralph Baer, the father of video games, turns 90 years old on Thursday. One of his early inventions, the Magnavox Odyssey, was the first home video game system. It turns 40 years old this year. I photographed and interviewed Ralph over the summer for my ongoing Inventor Portraits Project, and this seemed like a good time to share some of the video in which we discuss, among other things, why he’s still inventing at 90 years old.
