0

Today in 1927, American inventor Philo Farnsworth successfully demonstrated the world’s first electronic television image. A simple line was sent from his image dissector camera tube in one room of his San Francisco laboratory to a receiver in another room. His invention (which he co-credits his wife, Elma, with) would go on to lay the groundwork for television as we know it today.
