Colour-wheel television

Aiming to bring color to black and white televisions, the electrical engineer Guillermo Gonzalez Camarena invented the colour-wheel. He developed an adaptor that enabled every television to receive and transmit color images.

While this was not the first color television ever, it was the first patented in U.S. and Mexico, and it was used by the NASA to take images of Jupiter.
