Edison and the Kinetographic Camera
On this day in 1897 Thomas Edison set the standard. Edison received the patent for the Kinetographic Camera, what would later become the motion picture camera, thus changing the way we all see film. In hopes to increase some sales on the phonograph (moving picture with sound), an invention Edison also pioneered in 1877, he put together the Kinetographic Camera. He started with capturing a sneeze, and from that day forth allergies would never be the same. Through this medium we could all see moving picture. This story takes its own course and needs little explanation, but innovation is nothing to shy away from and deserves recognition. Thanks Tom.
