Grades 3-4
 One day, a television engineer named Ralph Baer began to wonder whether our TVs would be able to play games with us. His experiments led to the development of the first video game console, marketed by Magnavox as Odyssey. Honored by President George W. Bush as the father of video games, Baer is still at work developing new ideas.

Part of the "Genius at Work! Great Inventor Biographies", other titles in this elementary series include biographies on W. K. Kellogg, Les Paul, George Ferris, Igor Sikorsky, Vivien Thomas, James Naismith, Stephanie Kwolek, and more!
