Ralph Baer is famous for inventing video games in 1980s through today in United States. Its origins go back to 1966, when electrical engineer Ralph Baer invented what would become the Magnavox Odyssey, the first video game system. Despite its simple graphics and bleeping sound effects, the Odyssey established all the features of modern game systems: It hooked to your TV, used a handheld controller, and played a variety of games.

Ralph Baer donated his video game prototypes, objects, notes, and schematics to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in 2006. In 2014, the Museum collected his workshop to become the landmark object for its Innovation Wing.
