Who invented television and when?

Before electric television, we had mechanical television. In which a rotating mechanism produced the image. The device was built by the Scottish inventor John Logie Baird.

On 26 January 1926, he performed the world's first mechanical television from the Royal Institute in London.

The world's first electronic television was created by a 21-year-old inventor named Philo Taylor Farnsworth. Farnsworth successfully displayed the first television signal transmission with its own scanning tube on 7 September 1927.

A legal battle between Russian Vladimir K. Zworykin and Philo Taylor Farnsworth ruled in favor of Fransworth, giving him patent priority and making him officially the inventor of the first fully functional, all-electronic television.
