The History of Video Games
While he was working on his PhD degree on Human-Computer interaction at the University of Cambridge, Alexander S. Douglas created the first computer game with a digital graphical display in 1952. It was similar to the classic game Tic-Tac-Toe. Douglas programmed the game on a EDSAC vacuum tube computer with a cathode ray tube display. Then in 1958, William Higinbotham created the first videogame, called "Tennis for Two," on an oscilloscope at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This inspired other innovators such as Ralph Baer who wrote in 1967 the first video game displayed on a television set called Chase. From his schematic, a prototype known as the brown box was produced. And this invention would eventually lead Baer to create the world's first home video game console: The Magnavox Odyssey in 1972.
