World’s First Color Fax Machine

First introduced in 1947, this plain paper, color fax machine used “colored pencils to print the output” — taking approx. 15 minutes to send a 7×10&Prime picture. The first Colorfax machine was built by Dr. La Verne R. Philpott in his home workshop with “a drill press, a lathe and a couple of screwdrivers.” It was demonstrated this fall in the WGHF studio in New York, and a commercial model, which will plug into any FM radio and will retail for about $150, is being designed now.
