8. Television: John Logie Baird, 1925
Ah, the television. The coloured images that entertain and delight the senses both on the weekend lazy days or after a busy working day through the week. What would the modern family home look like without the television dominating the living room. Many homes have one, two, maybe even three TVs, some the size of movie theatres. Yet, this life changing invention only came around in 1925. Thanks for Scottish born innovator and hater of boredom, John Logie, we now have the mechanical television. Without him, the potential for colour on screens would never have come about.
