From once being a privilege to now becoming a necessity, television has surely come a long way. The modern television’s earliest ancestor was the Octagon, made by General Electric in 1928. It used a mechanical, rotating disc technology to display images on its three-inch screen. With flatscreens, LCD’s, LED’s and high-definition displays that can seem crisper and more colorful than reality itself, 21st-century viewers are comparatively spoiled.
