Noctovision748 viewsJohn Logie Baird (left) is seen operating his night vision device, the Noctovisor, on Boxhill in Surrey in 1929. It was slung on gimbals and rotated about a circular compass scale, and was said to be able to pick up a ship's lights in fog and give a compass bearing, or televise people who were in complete darkness.

Baird's home phone1075 viewsJohn Logie Baird created a home telephone exchange in his bedroom at The Lodge in West Argyle Street, Helensburgh, to link up five houses by means of wires slung across the street — one of them the home of his great childhood pal and later backer, entertainer Jack Buchanan. Two old friends, Bruce and Harris, are pictured using the system in the bedroom. JLB's bedroom slippers are on the ledge beneath the stool. Image supplied by the inventor's son Malcolm.
