Inventor of the television. Vladimir Zworykin copied his idea for RCA. He helped RCA keep all possible profits out of Farnsworth's hands. At age 14, young Philo had his working idea all set. He was a farmboy genius, and it was cornfields with different-colored corn that inspired him to use pixels the way he did. At 21, Farnsworth had his first working model of a television. Farnsworth also designed the Farnsworth-Hirsch Fusor, which was the first fusor to demonstrate actual nuclear fusion.
Philo T. Farnsworth invented the television designed the first working Fusor, but he is not famous. His wife, Elma, always fought for his place in history. She died in 2006.
