This Week in Tech History: Early Developments in Radio

On this edition of "This Week in Tech History", Chris remembers a patent, issued to Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi, that led to the invention of wireless radio broadcasting.

1896 – Guglielmo Marconi applied for a patent for his wireless telegraph paving the way for radio as we know it.

1869 – Thomas Edison of Boston, MA received a patent for his electric voting machine. Ol’ Tom would soon have a filing cabinet full of patents.

1953 – The first three-dimensional cartoon premiered at the Paramount Theatre in Hollywood, California. The production, a Walt Disney/RKO picture, titled, “Melody” involves an owl teaching his class full of birds about music and melody.
