Primitive as the Odyssey was, the world needed this form of home entertainment.  I don't think anyone else would have imagined a toy that you play on the television... or interchangeable cartridges for nearly another decade.

A fascinating life story of invention, military service, ingenuity, intellect, and perseverance.  Mr. Baer was certainly one of the greatest visionaries of this century, IMHO, and just as impressive to me was his integrity and character.  Big fan. 

May we all live as full a life.

Just heard this today from the Giant Bomb Cast.  Also pointed towards this article from the Washington Post:

http://www.washingtonpost...m-his-extraordinary-life/

The creator of the video game console.  There is no doubt that this man's vision changed the face of history.
