Who invented the telephone?
Humanity is so accustomed to the phone that most people just can’t do without it. Modern devices are already equipped with not only communication, but also the Internet. I’d never have thought that just half a century ago people used to communicate only by Telegraph. Most people are taking advantage of this means of communication, do not know and do not know who invented the telephone.
The history of the invention
In the world there is much debate who invented the world’s first means of communication, there are several candidates and each of them in its own right, but the patent for the invention of the telephone has only one and his name is immortalized in time as the Creator.
Mechanical engineer in 1854 introduced the fundamental action of the operation, he explained it in his work, when he was inspector of the Paris Telegraph. But all his development was on paper, to realize his creation he could not.
The Italian inventor in the mid-nineteenth century, after emigrating to the United States of America, created the office through which it was possible to communicate at a distance, but due to financial problems he could not patent his invention. Then he published in the newspaper the announcement of her unique designs, what attracted the attention of the company Western Union. She became interested in the work of the Italian, in turn, pledged to contribute and suggested further cooperation, but over time have lost their interest to the invention, and after 3 years, Antonio has announced that all the documentation is lost. After 5 years, never received a patent, Meucci from publications learned that a similar design is already patented by another person.
Johann Philip Reis
German physicist, in 1861 designed and built the device that passed in the distance the melodious sounds. The device had a peculiar microphone and speaker, but because of noise and too much noise it was useless and all the work on the project ended.
The inventor from Chicago also wanted to patent the device. It is known that the inventor of the February 14, 1876, filed his application in the U.S. Patent office in Washington, but he has failed to obtain a patent, as the first all the necessary documents for the same device already got Alexander Graham bell.
Alexander Graham Bell
What Alexander Graham bell is considered the inventor of the telephone is recorded in the patent of March 7, 1876. After 3 months, he demonstrated his creation at the world electrotechnical exhibition, which was held in Philadelphia. Interesting is the fact that the developer of the world’s first phone for the last 40 years of his life, flatly refused to install his invention at home. He claimed that the device need only at work but at home is a completely unnecessary thing that can ruin family life.
