It's a little known fact that Eastman-Kodak developed the digital camera. In 1975 a Kodak engineer built the first self-contained digital camera using a "Charge Coupled Device."

But storage in 1975 was a hassle and mass market computers were still in the future. While the camera could capture an image in less than the blink of an eye, it took half a minute to download the image onto cassette tape. Kodak put the camera on the back-burner and forgot about it. The result is that in 2012 Kodak filed Chapter 11.
