January 26, 1926, John Logie Baird manages to transmit moving images through the airwaves

On this day (January 26), 1926, for the first time in history, the Scottish engineer John Logie Baird manages to transmit moving images through the waves, with a definition of 28 lines and a frequency of 14 images per second
John Logie Baird was born in Helensburgh, Scotland, on August 13, 1888 and was a Scottish inventor, electrical engineer, and innovator.
he Quit his job as an electrical engineer to establish himself as an inventor. He was convinced that images could be sent via radio waves and that Paul Nipkow's exploring disk was the beginning from which he had to start.
he did not get any business house interested in his ideas and to carry his ideas forward, he worked as a shoe grease and razor blade salesman.
In 1924 he built a rudimentary mechanical instrument whose vital element was the Nipkow scanning disc. And in that same year he managed to transmit the silhouette of a Maltese cross more than 3 meters away.
His device was built with scrap elements ; the base was a tea box, the projector lamp was inside a biscuit box, the discs were made of cardboard and the lenses were the cheapest he could find on the market. The device was assembled with pieces of wood, needles, threads and sealing wax.
he was the first to make a public demonstration of his primitive television system transmitting moving images at the Royal Institute in London .
As a curiosity to comment that the Baird company, which was owned by John Logie Baird, was the first to supply the first television program for the BBC on September 30, 1929.
