32. John Logie Baird
- Most Famous For Inventing: The Color Television
If you have ever watched television in your life, then you should probably thank Scottish inventor John Logie Baird for that. He is one of the inventors behind the mechanical television. He is often referred to as “one of” because several things related to TV came about in the 1800s. However, very few were similar to modern-day televisions.
Baird’s first working system came about on January 26, 1926. He is the first man to demonstrate some form of color television and the first to make a fully electronic color television. On top of this, his company, Baird Television Development Company, was the first to achieve a transatlantic television transmission. John became one of the world’s greatest inventors as a result.
