Farnsworth invented the dissector tube which could pick up films or slides satisfactorily, but required huge amounts of light and bizarre makeup to define features in ordinary scenes. His system would never have been practical for general usage. He does deserve credit for his invention, however, and was screwed out of much of his financial and historical due by the David Sarnoff and the RCA machine.
