The light gun itself was the first peripheral for a video game console. 1966 he began to transform people’s relationship to home television by inventing a way to interact with TV sets. Later Nolan Bushnell played Odyssey at a trade show and went on to found Atari and create the arcade version of Baer’s Ping-Pong game, the now infamous Pong. Baer’s groundbreaking work has shaped the leisure-time activities of a large segment of the world’s population and spawned numerous businesses.
