The “Image Dissector”

Posted by innovativeip on August 26, 2010

Today’s Patent of the Day is U.S. Patent no. 1,773,980, issued on August 26, 1930 to Philo T. Farnsworth (side note: awesome name), and entitled “Television System”.

Today's Patent of the Day

The “Image Dissector” was the first “complete electronic televison system”.  Reading this patent is interesting because, although generally complicated, the description of the technology is easily understandable, wherein light transmission, prisms, and the like are discussed.  Philo would undoubtedly be surprised to walk into a sports bar with 100’s of screens, and would likely be speechless to find “television” delivery in our pockets, on smartphones.

You are invited to click over to to read the patent on the “of interest” page.  It’s probably time better spent than whatever you were going to watch on the tv.  Enjoy!
