Unhappy Video Game Pioneer Dies at 70

Gerald "Jerry" Lawson, self-taught engineer and inventor of the modern video game console, died at 70 from diabetes in Mountain View, California on Saturday, April 9th 2011. He gave us the modern video game console in the form of the Fairchild Channel F, the very first video game system with interchangeable games, and it came before the old Atari 2600 system. Last month, he was honored for his innovative work by the International Game Developers Association, something that was long overdue.

Rest In Peace

Gerald "Jerry" Lawson

December 1st 1940 to April 9th 2011
