About Robert G. Adler

l'inventeur de la télécommande ! --------------------

Wikipedia: Robert Adler ..After emigrating to the United States, he began working at Zenith Electronics in the research division in 1941. In his lifetime, Adler was granted 180 patents for electronic devices. During World War II, he worked on high-frequency oscillators and electromechanical filters in aircraft radios. After the war, he went on to work with television technology, where some of his inventions created - from then until his death in 2007 - more or less shaped modern television sets as we today know them.. Adler is also known for his work with surface acoustic wave technology, not only due to the fact that frequency filters based on it are widely used in color television sets, but also because it is used in most touch screen systems..

..In 1980, Adler was awarded the IEEE's Edison Medal. In 1997, Adler and Polley were jointly awarded an Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Adlers latest patent application was filed on February 1, 2007 for work on touch-screen technology.." OR see article in Washington Post.
