Telephone invented in (1876)

(Alexander Bell )

Why is the telephone important to society today? The telephone helps us communicate better by letting us call people from far away distances like on the other side of the world.  It's faster then writing a letter, you get a hold of them faster and more efficiently.  It doesn't take long to receive or send them so you'll get an extremely fast response in no time.  It was invented by Alexander Bell and he was granted the first official patent for his invention of the telephone in March 1876.

(Thomas Edison)

All the way up to the 19th century we’ve used moon light, candles and lanterns as light sources. Sometime during the first half of the 19th century gas lighting was developed and it flourished. The unfortunate part of the gas was that it would produce a flickering light and that burned down many of the theaters and homes world wide. Then in 1809 electric arc lighting was invented all tho it was safer it was much to bright for small living area’s. We needed a smaller light and in 1880 Thomas Edison patent the first commercially viable incandescent light bulb.

The television was invented by two people technically. John Logie Baird was the first to come up with the idea of a "television transmitter" and created it using other peoples inventions In 1923 he began to show off his invention and the television began to be commercialized. Then in 1936 BBC began broadcasting the Baird television. In 1939 20,000 television sets were reported in just London alone. It was a genius invention but it was found unreliable. Then in 1928 Philo Taylor Farnsworth made the first reliable and working television.

(Christopher Latham)

The first type writer was invented in 1868 by Christopher latham, Carlos Glidden and Samuel W. Soule in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although Soule disowned the machine and refused to use it or recommend it. It revolutionized all businesses who had one. It helped speed up time and helped most Americans technologies blossom.The typewriter allowed for more efficiency in shorthand, and eventually became a symbol for letting American woman work. Then most woman began being secretaries all over the country using them. It became a main tool that almost every single business needed at least one.


(Guglielmo Marconi and the telegraph)

Two men an American scientist Nikola tesla and an Italian physicist Guglie Marconi. And they went head-to-head in what became a race to invent the radio. Both inventors invented diferent devices and items that with out them the radio wouldn’t work. The radio was invented in 1895. Guglie Marconi invented the telegraph in 1837. The radio aired for the first time in 1969. The radio was so important then and now because it tells us about the weather and so many other things like whats going on in our world today and you can listen to music from all over the world from different cultures.

(barbie karaoke machine)

In Japanese culture it was common to provide musical entertainment. And Daisuke Inoue recorded his songs to provide a sing along version that played songs for 100 yen each. Also known as the first Karaoke Machine invented in Kobe, Japan in 1971. And today you can sing off of a screen with the lyrics.

The wright brothers Orville and William Wright made the first successful engined airplane that carried a man, rose by its own power, and stayed at an even speed, and landed without damage. they were so confident they would be successful they applied for a patent 9 months before their flight was successful.


Its hard to know exactly who invented the first auto mobile its all in a matter of opinions. But we do know only one inventor was given credit and that was Karl Benz from Germany. Many believe that he did and maybe he did invent it in 1885 or 1886 but it is uncertain. But i do know that with out cars we would have to walk like pioneers every were and that we wouldn't live as long of life spans because there wont be any ambulances to rush us to the hospital and we would of probably died from contracting desisous.

(Percy Spencer)

He worked at a spool mill from when he was 12 years old till he was 16. Then at age 18 he joined the U.S. navy when he heard of wireless communications directly following learning about the wireless operators aboard the Titanic when it sank. While with the navy, he became an expert on radio technology.  He self taught himself trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, physics, and metallurgy, among other subjects with only textbooks.  In 1939 Spencer worked with Raytheon designing radar tubes at the head of his devision he helped Raytheon win a government contract to develop and produce combat radar equipment for M.I.T.’s Radiation Laboratory.  Then One day he was working on building magnetrons for radar sets and realized his candy bar melted in his pocket in front of the active radar set.  Spencer then created what we might call the first true microwave oven by attaching a high density electromagnetic field generator to an enclosed metal box. Then on October 8, 1945 Raytheon filed a patent for the microwave.  And later on through the years they used his ideas to create the oven and a normal microwave.
