1881
The earliest identified flat disc record was made by
Sumner Tainter on November 8th, 1881 and is in
the Smithsonian Institution collection. This record was
made before there was even a practical device to play back
a disc recording. The playback mechanisms tested had a
tendency to destroy the wax grooves due to the tangential
force that was not a problem in Edison's cylinder system.
This disc uses lateral or zigzag grooves in contrast to the
hill-and-dale grooves of the Edison cylinder

1897
The first television camera
employed early versions of
the cathode ray tube invented
in 1897. The RCA Company
led production of early video
production equipment in the
United States and invented
the first handheld mobile
video production camera, the
TK-44, in 1972.

The first transistor was invented at Bell
Laboratories on December 16, 1947 by
William Shockley (seated at Brattain's
laboratory bench), John Bardeen (left) and
Walter Brattain (right). This was perhaps
the most important electronics event of the
20th century, as it later made possible the
integrated circuit and microprocessor that
are the basis of modern electronics.

(08/06) The World Wide Web debuts as as a
publicly available service on the Internet. Tim
Berners-Lee, who builds all of the tools
necessary for a working Web, posts a short
summary of the project: "The WorldWideWeb
(WWW) project aims to allow all links to be
made to any information anywhere... The
WWW project was started to allow high energy
physicists to share data, news, and
documentation. We are very interested in
spreading the web to other areas, and having
gateway servers for other data. Collaborators
welcome!

featured a 3-CCD imaging device for
unprecedented video quality in a home video
camera.
