sound recording :: History of Recording Technology --  Kids Encyclopedia | Children's Homework Help | Kids Online Dictionary | Britannica

sound recording, History of Recording Technology:
The first device to record and reproduce sound was the phonograph, which was invented by Thomas Alva Edison in 1877. The first phonographs used a vibrating stylus, or needle, to cut pits representing sound waves into tinfoil-wrapped cylinders. The sound was reproduced when a second stylus traced over the pits. Emile Berliner's Gramophone, invented in 1887, replaced the cylinder with a flat disc and made many improvements in Edison's invention possiblefor example, easier mass production and enhanced fidelity. Lee De Forest patented the amplifying, three-element electron tube, called the Audion, in 1907, and electric phonographs using amplifiers with one or more tubes appeared in the 1920s.

But then in 1828 a Frenchman named Bernard Lassimone invented the first mechanical pencil sharpener.  As noted by The Early Office Museum, this sharpener employed small metal files set at 90 degrees in a block of wood and worked to scrape and grind the edges of the pencil’s tip. Since it wasn’t all that much faster than whittling, it didn’t catch on, which is why in 1847 another Frenchman named Therry des Estwaux improved on Lassimone’s design and came up with the first sharpener that worked by twisting the pencil in a conical housing, a design known today as a [...]
