It is a great time for inventing in America. There are many inventors creating inventions they believe will change the future. Starting at the top, Mr. Alexander Graham Bell has invented what he calls the telephone, a device that can transport sounds over distances, "like talking through a telegraph" as he explained it to his assistant, Thomas Watson. Bell experimented with sound transmission through electrical current.
Also Thomas Alva Edison has rolled out his perfection of the Light Bulb. the famed inventor of the Phonograph is also known for improving the telegraph. And two brothers believed they have found a way to make people fly. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, have invented a flying machine to be tested at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
