My project is done

I had to do a 5 page min paper on the history of a aspect of technology so i chose video games
here is the introduction page

Hello my name is Christopher smith and I am going to take you on a ride through the history of home video games starting with the odyssey to wii. Now before I begin I must give you an insight on the early history of video games. The first electronic game was by Thomas T. Goldsmith Jr. and Estle Ray Mann. The game was called the Cathode Ray Tube Amusement Device it is a WWII missile simulator and the object of the game was to hit a small target. Screen overlays were used for the targets as graphics could not be drawn at the time. The second game made is Chess for computer it was written on 1951 by Dr. Dietrich Prinz using a Manchester Ferranti computer. The 7th game spacewar. Programmed by 3 MIT students Martin Graetz, Steve Russell, and Wayne Wiitanen it consisted of 2 triangle shaped ships rotating around gravity well. The object was with your limited weapons and fuel supply to shoot the other players ship. Now that I have given you a insight on the first few video games I will tell you about the history of home video game consoles.

tl;dr i typed about the first few fully electronic games for a school project
