Bill Holland received an Academy Award for building, in his high-school and college years, the first programmable motion controller for movie cameras. He worked at Hewlett-Packard Labs for 40 years where he invented the principle of navigating by correlating successive images of the substrate being moved over. This invention was crucial to the development of the modern optical mouse. He also made important contributions to HP's scanners and laser and inkjet printers.
