World’s First Digital Camera

Ahhhhh the 70’s… the decade where the first Star Wars movie was released, where afro haircuts where all the rage, and where the first digital camera came into existence. Yep, you read that right! In 1975, Kodak released the world’s first digital camera prototype, a clunky-looking device that used casette tapes as the medium to store pictures. Each photo took 23 seconds to snap, producing a 100-line black and white image that could only be displayed on a television set. No wonder why it never became popular.
