Father of the digital camera, Willard S. Boyle dies at 86

Thought this was kind of relevant:

Willard Boyle obituary: Willard Boyle, a father of the digital camera, dies -

So... Thanks, Mr. Boyle. We wouldn't be where we are now if it weren't for your contributions.

I remember reading about the Nobel prize award and wondering why it took the Royal Swedish Academy so long to recognize such a great contribution to modern science.

RIP, Willard.
