On this day in 1947, the first arcade game is patented. Thomas Goldsmith’s “Cathode ray tube amusement device” is considered the ancestor of video games. It is the first game to incorporate an electronic display. The device simulates an artillery shell arcing towards targets on a cathode-ray tube (CRT) screen, which is controlled by the player by adjusting knobs to change the trajectory of a CRT beam spot on the display in order to reach plastic targets overlaid on the screen.
