The Microvision, a handheld system from Milton Bradley, was the first handheld video game system with interchangeable cartridges. The same technology would be used on the Nintendo Game Boy ten years later. It was released in November 1979 for a price of $49.99. The Microvision was designed by Jay Smith, who later designed the Vectrex home video game system. The library of very few cartridges, a small screen, and lack of support from video game companies led to the Microvision being discontinued in 1981.
