Interview with Steven Sasson

IEEE publishes an interview with Steven J. Sasson who invented the first digital camera in 1975 while working at Eastman Kodak, in Rochester, N.Y. A notable Q&A:

Q: What tech advance in recent years has surprised you the most?

A: Cameras are everywhere! I would have never anticipated how ubiquitous the imaging of everything would become. Photos have become the universal form of casual conversation. And cameras are present in almost every type of environment, including in our own homes. I grossly underestimated how quickly it would take for us to get here.

  1. Steve is a great guy and friend. I usually try to say Steve invented the first self-contained digital camera, in deference to my former colleagues at JPL. Such a shame that Kodak fumbled this technology, too.
