The Magnavox Odyssey was the world's first home video game console. It was first demonstrated on May 24, 1972 and released in August of that year, predating the Atari Pong home consoles by three years.
 
It was designed by Ralph Baer, who began around 1966 and had a working prototype finished by 1968.
 
The Magnavox Odyssey was a cartridge based console allowing it to play a different game simply by inserting a different game card.
 
Although the console itself was black and white, colour was added to the games by use of a screen overlay that attached to the screen of your CRT television.
