1948: Edison Worked on a Spirit Phone to Record Voices of the Dead

A long-lost chapter of the memoir of Thomas Edison has been found and published in France and it contains details of the great inventor’s plans to build a device to record the voices of the newly departed. Edison’s original memoir is called “Diary And Sundry Observations” and was published in 1948, 16 years after his death.

Edited by Jim Glenn ( This is a Must Have Book for Inventors ! ) — Tommy C — Barnes & Noble Books – New York ISBN 1–56619–266–8 © 1994 by Barnes & Noble Inc. Nikola Tesla’s Automobile   Nikola Tesla, the “man who invented the twentieth century,” was born July 10, 1856, at Smiljan, Lika province (in modern Croatia), a part of the expiring Empire of Austro–Hungary. His father, Rev. Milutin Tesla of the Serbian Orthodox Church, intended Nikola for the priesthood, but did not insist–it must have been hard to make demands of the high–strung, fragile youth who was his son. On Nikola’s evidence we know his mother, Duka Mandic, to have been an inventor, a maker of tools and devices for her weaving, carpentry, and other handiwork. As a child Nikola manifested a full share of Duka’s ingenuity, building among other things a bug–propelled engine. Much […] Read More
