Video game legend Ralph Baer passed away this weekend. If you don’t know who he is he was the inventor of one of the very first consoles the Magnivox Odyssey. Ralph Henry Baer (born Rudolf Heinrich Baer; March 8, 1922 – December 6, 2014) was a German-American video inventor, engineer, and was known as "The Father of Video Games".
