Event Date: Event Title: Event Description:
Timeline The invention of the battery The invention of the battery was by Count Alessandro Volta in 1800. This changed communication as we know it today because the Battery is used to power many communication devices as we know it today.
Timeline The invention of the electric telegraph The telegraph uses electrical currents in a coil to attract an iron lever called a sounder. It creates a clicking sound. With the telegraph, electrical pulses could be transmitted over long distances. Alot of inventions came shortly after that. After the first telegraphs were invented, Samuel Morse devised code using long and short sounds, or "dots and dashes" to represent each letter of the alphabet. It's one of the first telegraphs invented and without it we wouldnt have a phone to this day.
Timeline The invention of the first practical computer the invention of the first practical compuer was by Charles Babbage. Computers are divices that perform calculators and process data. The invention of the first practical computer was a big impact on tecnology as we know it today because since Charles created somewhat of the first computer, researchers in Germany, England, and the United States began to use electronic components in the late 1930's, and all the way up to today.
Timeline the invention of the first practical photograph Chemicals that produced the first practical photograph were invented during the 19th century by several french scientists This invention made a difference of the world in tecnology because new ideas spread among researchers very fast. The new inventions changed society to as we know it now.
Timeline The invention of braille The invention of Braille was by Luis Braille in 1828. Braille is a great communicaton device and the lettering is used to communicte for the blind people. It is still great use as of today.
Timeline The invention of the typewritier The invention of the type writer was by a man names W.A. Burt, in 1829. The type writer helps make a letter faster then writing. And this invention is a important communication device because its faster than writing and alot of people found it in great use, alomng with alot more inventions that grew from that
Timeline Invention of Induction Induction is a process that produces an electrical current by moving a wire through a magnetic field. It was created in 1831 by Michael Faraday. Because of this, electricity led to many inventions that grew on from that, such as things we know as of today, such as fluoresecent lights and radios.
Timeline The invention of the fiber optics The invention of the fiber optics was by John Tyndall in 1854. It dementrated the pricibles of fiber optics. This is used to broadcast TV channels like the local news and it is a great source of communication and still is today.
Timeline The event of the Pony Express The event of the Pony Express was by three men named William H. Russell, William B. Waddell, and Alexander Majors. The Pony Express was the first Mail system in North America. This was the start of the mail system we use today and is a great communication device
Timeline The invention of the telephone The invention of the telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell in 1876. This is a important communication device because you can talk to someone without writing to them or talking face to face. Alot of people have grew on from this invention to make it even better. This is a very important deivice that we still use today.
Timeline The invention of the mimeograph The invention of the mimeograph was invented by Thomas Edison in 1876, Its a office copying machine. This was a important communication device and changed socieity because you can duplicate information that is useful and send it to others.
Timeline The invention of the microphone The invention of the microphone was by a woman named Emile Berliner in 1876. Microphones take in acoustic sounds and sends them through a wire that is connected to a speaker that amplifies the sound. Micrphones are such a important communication device in technology because they are used for many famouse speechs, like the presidintial speeches and are a great help for our communication society.
Timeline The National Geographic The event of the National Geograohic was allowed people to see and learn about the world in 1888. The form of communication is important because this gave a new perspective on how big communication was getting and now National Geographic is on the T.V.
Timeline the invention of the radio The radio was made by Guglielmo Marconi in 1895, that was first what he created as the first "wireless" telegraph; which is a electrical impluse without wires witch soon formed in the radio. This invention/event chanced technology as we know it today because the radio is way of broadcasting to the world. The news and other programs could be transmitted over large areas. All the way up to today, the radio is something everyone around the world will recieve.
Timeline The invention of the Neon Light The invention of the neon light was by a man named George Claude. Its a kind of light that's bright and captures people's attaention.
The reason why this is a important communication device because neon lights are used by stores and big buisnesses to catch people's attention and you wouldnt be able to communicate doing buisnesses if you cant see and attract people.
Timeline The invention of the lie detector The invention of the lie detector was by a man named James Mackenzie, it was made in 1902. The reason why this is such an important communication device is because it helps cops determine if crimanals are telling the truth to them or not. This changes sociaity alot because without it we wont be able to see if a crimanal is telling the truth.
Timeline the invention of the iconoscope and kinescope The invention of the iconoscope and the kinescope came from a man named Vladimir Zworykin in 1923. What it is, is television that converts light and sound into electrical waves for transmission and then turns the back into light and sound for viewing. The invention of this changed tecnology as we know it today because it became a very popular communication device. TV could transfer information more quickly than any other form of communication other than talking right in fornt of someone.
Timeline Invention of satellite The invention of the satellite was created by scientists. A satellite is a device that orbits the earth for communication purposes that was created around the 1940's. The invention of the satellite is an important invention of technology because in the 1960's Echo larger satellies are able to transmit thousands of telephone calls or messages that could be launched into the earth orbit. The satellite controls the telephone, TV signals,, ect;
Timeline The invention of the electronic digital computer The invention of the electronic digital computer was invented by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry in 1942. The electronic digital computer was a very important communication device because they're used for talkign to friends and family and co-works for wherever you live to acroos the world. This changed sociaity in a very helpful way and still is a important communication.
