Ralph H. Baer, the inventor of the home video game console (among many other things), has passed away at the age of 92. He was a true genius who in his lifetime never quite received the fame he really deserved, so if you haven't heard about the man before please do read up on him.
I had the pleasure of attending one of his talks a few years ago. Even at this high age he seemed to posess an exceptional clarity of mind. Sad to hear the news, however I'm glad that he was able to live such a long and fulfilled live. Rest in peace, Mister Baer.
