John Logie Baird FRSE (Born 14 August 1888 – Died 14 June 1946) was a Scottish engineer, innovator, one of the inventors of the mechanical television, demonstrating the first working television system on 26 January 1926, and inventor of both the first publicly demonstrated colour television system, and the first purely electronic colour television picture tube.

Logie Baird rented several rooms in Queens Arcade to conduct his experiments. He was evicted by the Landlord, Mr Tree, after an explosion. Logie Baird had made his own power source by linking batteries with copper wire. The room is above Gifts & Giggles.
