Einstein Invents Automatic Electric Eye Camera
PROFESSOR ALBERT EINSTEIN, famed for his theories on relativity and the universe, is a practical inventor as well. The U. S. Patent Office has granted the noted physicist and Dr. Gustav Bucky, consulting radiologist at New York University, who is co-inventor, a patent covering a Light Intensity Self-Adjusting Camera. Professor Einstein also holds British and American patents on improvements in gas-burning refrigerators and Dr. Bucky is inventor of a diaphragm used in X-ray photography. The camera device uses a photo-electric cell which automatically increases or decreases light entering a camera by moving a tiny light filter graduated from zero to complete transparency.
