Magnavox Odyssey developer Ralph Baer turns 90

Happy birthday to the ‘Father of Videogames.’ He also designed the ‘Simon’ standalone game.

Holy crap, happy birthday indeed.


Keep on truckin’ on, Mr. Baer. You were a big part of my childhood (we had an Odyssey2 and tons of games – still have them) and helped shape my adulthood. Happy Birthday!

Nice. I can still hear those Simon tones in my head, and 1980 was a very long time ago.
