Phonograph

In 1877 Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. The way it worked is you speak into the horn. While you are speaking into it a needle would etch you words into a copper can. Then it would then speak the same words back out to you.

How the Phonograph came to be

Thomas Edison had the idea to put a diaphragm, telephone, telegraph together and attempt to make a machine that records your voice. He took the stylus from the telegraph and attached it to a diaphragm connected to a telephone. Edison spoke into his new contraption and when he played it back and all it sounded like was some static noise. That is the beginning of the Phonograph
