Carbon Telephone Transmitter Button!

Thomas Edison invented the motograph and automatic telegraph systems such as the quadruplex, sextuplex and multiplex telegraph. Also invented paraffin paper the electric pen, the forerunner of the present day mimeograph machine, the carbon rheostat, the microtasimeter! Edison also invented the carbon telephone transmitter button, which finally made telephony a commercial success and is still in use today in telephones! The invention of the carbon telephone transmitter button, not only led to the development of the microphone, which made early radio possible, but the solid state diode or transistor which makes so many of today's electronic devices possible!



Invented sockets, switches, insulating tape, invented gummed paper tape. He created the first electric motor ever made for a 110 to 120 volt line, contracted and designed for the first three wire central station to enable distribution of electric light, power, and heat. Discovered a previously unknown phenomenon that later came to be known as the "Edison Effect," that he named "The Etheric Force!"

Foundation of Wireless Telegraphy!

Determined that an independent wire grid or plate placed between the legs of the filament of an incandescent lamp. The grid acted as a damper or valve to control the flow of current. Later to be recognised as electric waves in free space that became the foundation of wireless telegraphy, along with his carbon button involved the foundation principles upon which the diode was later invented, and upon which radio, television, and computer transistors are based on the foresights of Thomas Alva Edison the inventor of inexpressible descriptions. America before World War I was at the most, entirely dependent upon foreign sources for fundamental coal-tar plagiaristic vital to many types of manufacturing processes! These plagiaristic were to become increasingly essential for the production of explosives, which brought new tasks that were bundled onto Edison at the point of entry of the United States into the war at that time, had seen his giant West Orange manufacturing plant devastated by fire!

Coal Tar Chemical Industry!

Before the West Orange manufacturing plant fire had died down and, before the  heat from the ashes had gone cold, there was a big rush to design a new building! Edison's work in this field is recognised as having paved the way for the development of coal-tar chemical industry in the United States! recourses was ample! The new building was swiftly assembled, and in less than no time at all the new  

structures raised from the ruins! Edison proceeded to established plants for the the then Secretary of the Navy, Josephus Daniels anticipated the country's need for technological advancement in its scrutiny program! Joseph Daniels thoughts was focused on one man only! Thomas Edison was the one and only person whom he believed was the only person in the world who could embark on such a program! Of course, Edison had no doubt in accepting the roll of president for the newly formed Naval Consulting Board in 1915 that became the forerunner of the Navy Department's great research division of today Thomas Edison summoned all the leading scientists to serve with him on the consulting board!
