In the late 1960s, while working for Sanders Associates, Baer created a series of video game console designs.
One of these designs, which gained the nickname of the 1966 "Brown Box", featured changeable game modes and was demonstrated to several TV manufacturers, ultimately leading to an agreement between Sanders Associates and Magnavox.
Crippled by a small, fragile LCD display and a very narrow selection of games, it was discontinued two years later.All three of the new consoles used simpler designs than the original Odyssey did with no board game pieces or extra cartridges.In the years that followed, the market saw many companies rushing similar consoles to market.The VES, however, contained a programmable microprocessor so its cartridges only needed a single ROM chip to store microprocessor instructions.
RCA and Atari soon released their own cartridge-based consoles, the RCA Studio II and the Atari 2600 (originally branded as the Atari Video Computer System), respectively.
Magnavox replaced the switch design with separate cartridges for each game.
