Einstein Co-inventor of New Camera Using Photo-electric Eye

Download PDF for this date

Prof. Albert Einstein was revealed today as the co-inventor of a new camera which will enable amateur photographers to get good results without worrying about time exposure.

The camera employs a photo-electric “eye” which, when a button is pressed, admits the proper amount of light. Dr. Gustav Bucky, specialist in use of the X-ray as a curative medium, is Prof. Einstein’s collaborator.

Patent experts predict the new camera, which has been patented, will be practically and commercially important in the next few years.
