Yup, 1968 for the Post it note and 1975 for the digital camera.
In 1968, 3M research scientist Dr. Spencer Silver created a strange adhesive, which he found different and interesting, but for the most part, useless. In 1974, another 3M researcher, Arthur Fry, tried using the adhesive material to hold his papers together after he got frustrated when the bookmarks in his hymn book started flying around.

The first digital camera was created by Kodak engineer Steven Sasson in December 1975. Although it wasn’t the type of camera you’d take to document a family vacation -- at eight pounds, the camera took 0.01 megapixel black and white photographs that were recorded onto a cassette tape. One image took nearly 23 seconds to take, and could only be seen when the camera was connected to a television set.
