The first telephone was invented in 1875 by Alexander Graham Bell.  It has changed society in a crazy way.  Without the telephone we would have to take way more time in delivering messages to places on foot, instead we can just do in seconds.


Batteries are a very important invention, invented in 1800.  Without them we wouldn't have lots of the things we have today like cars, phones, airplanes, and trucks.  Batteries power many things and give them the power to work and stay working for a long period of time.
