Don’t Let Your Age Stand In Your Way

How can you do more than people expect from someone your age?

Philo Farnsworth began sketching the details of a something he called a television camera when he was sixteen years old. This was a most impressive feat since the year was 1922 and the television had not been invented yet! The inspiration for Farnsworth’s ideas of sending electronic pictures came after he observed rows of crops from a hillside above his home in Idaho and then read an article by a Russian professor about electron tubes. He kept working on his idea and at age 24, patented his electronic television camera.
