Computer History - The Laser Printer

Xerox researcher Gary Starkweather invented the laser printer concept in 1969. Starkweather used a laser beam combined with the xerography process to create a laser printer method. Remarkably, the Xerox company showed little interest in his invention. Mr. Starkweather persisted and continued to refine laser printer technology. He completed the first working laser printer in 1971.
