VBS.tv's Motherboard, the technology-focused mini-documentary series we previously featured for its pieces on Walter Day and the Virtusphere, posted a new, enlightening interview with "The Father of Video Games" Ralph Baer.

While he talks about developing the "Brown Box"/Magnavox Odyssey prototype for the world's first video game console, it's also worth watching the bits where he discusses his prophetic "All-Purpose Box" ideas from 1967, like buying and downloading content with a video game system. He pitched the concept to cable companies, but it was too ahead of its time to convince them.

"Ideas are ideas," Baer admits in the video. "Executing them isn't the hardest thing of all. Selling the stuff, that's the hard part."
