In 1969, Ralph Baer, often called the "Father of Videogames" created a gaming console prototype known as the Brown Box. This first videogame console created the modern videogame industry. While the original Brown Box is in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the National Videogame Museum in Frisco has a Brown Box replica created by Ralph Baer himself. Baer passed away in 2014. His son, Mark Baer will give a special presentation at the National Videogame Museum celebrating the pioneering work of his father.

This presentation will include a video of the first demonstration of the Brown Box. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and the opportunity to play on the very first videogame console prototype.
