Telephone: The Making

Ever wondered how things around you were first invented? Ever wondered what were the motivation behind the inventions?

I have always been amazed by early inventions, and the invention of the telephone is by far the most interesting. Did you know that the main motivation behind the invention of the telephone was ‘LOVE’? At least I was not aware of it until I saw a show last night on the discovery of the telephone. Yes, it’s TV again. Don’t you ever call that an idiot box again.

I couldn’t find the video on the internet, But I did find a real good page explaining everything from start to stop, And I made a new discovery: AT & T, the telecom company is the direct corporate predecessor of the Bell telephone company.

Not wasting any more time, Here’s the link the the more important page.

Inventing the Telephone

(The image is a patent copy issues to Graham Bell for his invention. Bell had to fight a long case with Elisha Gray (another inventor) over the discovery, history of  which can be found here: Elisha Gray and Graham Bell Telephone Patent Contraversy. Enjoy as I read it too.)

Hope you enjoy this as much as i did.

    I was more interested in the way they discovered it more than the invention itself.

    Interested in a few more crazy ideas?

    How inventor’s can become cunning to defend their invention?
    The History of Electric Chair – Edison demonstrated how AC(Alternating Current) kills instantly than his discovery, the DC(Direct Current).
