The man who made most American Kids obese!Ralph H. Baer is the one who transformed sets you merely watched into screens that you could interact with and control.
His system was licensed to Magnavox, which began selling it as Odyssey in the summer of 1972, as the first home video game console. In 1973, he was granted Patent No. 3,728,480.

He did get a lot of help from Obese Adults!
