There are very important inventions all over the world and one of the most important ones is the telephone. The famous incident in which Alexander Graham Bell spilled acid on himself and called out to his assistant, Watson, not realizing his voice was being carried over the telephone was on March 10. The telephone is invented to transmit and receive sound (most commonly speech). The invention of the telephone was a major advancement in technology as we know it today. Without it, it would be almost impossible to communicate with others these days.
It was created in the late 1800's by a Scottish-born American inventor named Alexander Gramn Bell. Bell had built an experimental telegraph one day, and noticed it was working very strangely because there was a loose part on it. He noticed that he could send voice messages through it and someone could receive the message on the other side. Therefore he created a transmitter and a receiver, and he patented it on March 7, 1876.
The creation of the telephone changed how people communicated a great deal, because now people could communicate faster and a lot more easily than before. Also it was very economically friendly. The telephone consists of about 211 parts and is very complicated to build. But for being so complicated, they are really rather cheap and the average person can afford one. These days you can buy a good phone for under $30.00. Just go and take a look in the Best Buy sales ad and you can find a good V-tech telephone for $29.00.
We owe a great deal to the inventors of the telephone because without them it would be very hard to communicate. So we should be very thankful for their invention.
