Full Episode Summary

This video is part of an ongoing series of photo and video portraits of contemporary inventors from all walks of life. More can be seen at dfpblog.com/inventors Ralph Baer is often called the father of video games. His invention, the Magnavox Odyssey, was the first home console system. I photographed and interviewed him this summer as part of my ongoing series on inventors (the book and app for which will be out eventually I promise). Since he turns 90 years old this week, and this year marks the 40th anniversary of the video game, I chose for this video some bits from our interview in which we talk about, among other things, why he's still inventing at 90 years old.moreless
