In December 1975, Kodak employees pieced together a hodgepodge of digital circuits and electronics odds and ends to create the world’s first digital camera. The developers of the clunky gadget called it a “portable all electronic still camera” (not the snappiest name ever) that offered “Film-less Photography.”

A technical report filed at the time of development pinpoints the camera’s significance: “The camera described in this report represents a first attempt demonstrating a photographic system which may, with improvements in technology, substantially impact the way pictures will be taken in the future.”

Fun with history.
