First image scanner developed
The first image scanner developed for use with a computer was built at the US National Bureau of Standards by a team led by Russell A. Kirsch. The first image ever scanned on this machine, known as a Drum Scanner, was a 5 cm square photograph of Kirsch’s three-month-old son. The black and white image had a resolution of 176 pixels.
