Telephone.

transmit - передавать inventor – изобретатель receiver – приемник

wire – провод invention – изобретение

February14, 1876 was a day that changes the history of communication forever. On that day a tall Scotsman, Alexander Graham Bell walked into the New York patent office. He was carrying the drawing of his invention. The invention was able to transmit the sound of the voice by wire over long distances. We know this invention as the telephone. Just two hours late on the same day, another man Elisha Gray came to the same patent office with “his telephone”. But, unfortunately for him, it was too late. Bell has gone into history as the inventor of the telephone.

The first real telephone call was on March 6, 1876, when bell, in one room, called to his assistant in another room. “Come here, Watson, I want you.” Watson heard bell through a receiver which Bell had connected to the transmitter.

After that bell started his famous company: the Bell Telephone Company. The new invention quickly became popular. A month after Bell invented the telephone, his telephone company had sold only six phones! A year and a half later they had sold 778 telephones. Fifteen years after the invention there were five million phones in America.

Nowadays the Bell Telephone Company (later AT&T) is the largest telephone company in the world.
