Tech Logic: Flash From the Past

The “Brown Box”

Z0049414

 

The Brown Box was designed by Ralph Baer and colleagues in 1967. Ralph worked at an electronics firm called Sanders Associates. It was the first video-game that you could connect to a television. The first game he developed was called the “chase game”. After developing the “chase game” his team came up with a way to connect it to a t.v. using vacuum tubes. Finally, the team developed a total of 12 video games. Some of the games included golf and ping pong.
