Explore artifacts of inventors who built the foundation for modern radio and television. Learn about inventor who filed the first electronic musical instrument patent in the US who was also a Russian spy. Join liked minded inventors in celebrating Albert Einstein’s 139 birthday. Learn how Albert Einstein himself worked at the Swiss patent office and had approximately 50 patents including a clever home refrigerator with no moving parts. You will be impressed with the age, condition and variety of intellectual equipment on display which will be covered on the tour.
David Monroe, founder of SAMSET, is a San Antonio technology entrepreneur who came to San Antonio in 1971 to work with the first desktop computer (aka first Personal Computer) and the first 8 bit microprocessors developed by the 1968 startup Computer Terminal Corporation. The company grew from 300 employees when he started in 1971, to become Datapoint Corporation with over 10,000 employees. Mr. Monroe worked as a programmer and engineer, started development groups and served as Vice President of Electrooptics Development, VP of Office Graphics Systems, and VP of Research and Development. In those roles, he developed processors, graphic displays and pioneered the laptop computer, the wireless LAN, laser printing, desktop scanning, facsimile communications gateways and other technologies. Other extra-curricular projects included work on digital music synthesis and an integrated video-voice-data workstation.
David has been issued more than 50 U.S. patents in communications, surveillance, imaging and other areas, including core technology for IP video cameras and patents on the camera cell phone. He has been involved with patent litigation and has advised both inventors and patent litigants.
