Interview with Ralph Baer, The Father of Video Games

Interview with Ralph Baer

Photographer David Friedman recently interviewed Ralph Baer, the inventor of the home video game console. Baer’s game system, the Magnavox Odyssey, was released 40 years ago, in 1972. Baer is now 90 years old and still inventing. The interview is part of Friedman’s wonderful Inventor Portrait series. We previously wrote about Friedman’s interview with Steven Sasson, inventor of the digital camera.
