Late video game engineer Jerry Lawson transformed at-home gaming in the ’70s, but his work was mostly forgotten — until now.
When at-home video game consoles were first introduced, they had one game apiece wired into the actual hardware. Then, engineer Jerry Lawson invented a console with interchangeable gaming cartridges. It was called the Channel F and it was released in 1976. Unfortunately, Lawson and the Channel F have largely been forgotten, until now.
