    I had this link open all day from Destructoid and never bother to watch it.

    It's a short film that's based on the life of Ralph Baer who is The Father Of Video Game. It chronicles very quickly his life and his inspirations. To how he got awarded the National Medal of Technology for inventing the home console for video games and spawning the video game industry.

    But then it takes a turn where he speaks of his personal life and the stuff that he's dealing while he's getting old. It's sad to hear. I also like that he is still doing engineering work and coding at his age, that stuff is like art.

    Also watch the PBS Inventor Series, they are really good.
