Boombox The Evolution of Music Playing Devices By: Erin Clark Mr.Beyerle
4th Period Phonograph Invented by Thomas Edison 1877 The phonograph was the first device to record and play back sound. The sound came from engravings on the outside of the cylinder. Gramophone Invented by:
Emile Berline 1887 The gramophone used a flat disc, most commonly know as a vinyl record, instead of a cylinder to produce sound. The Radio Invented by Marconi/Tesla The Radio was not used for listening to music until the early 1900s. JukeBox Record Player 8 track Walkman CD Player MP3 Player First Ipod Ipod nano IPhone Itouch Ipad Citation http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a0/EdisonPhonograph.jpg/230px-EdisonPhonograph.jpg
http://www.ehow.com/about_5390689_ipod.html Invented by Thomas Edison 1940s An upgraded version of the gramophone but with no horn. Grooves in the vinyl record are read by a needle tip stylus and sound is transmitted through the speakers. Sound quality is enhanced. Invented by
William Powell Lear Early 1960s
It was made to have a continuous play of music and not have to flip it over to hear the other songs. 1975 Woelfel Brothers The boombox had an 8 track player, a cassette player, and could be used to listen to the radio. It also had speakers, amplifiers, and a radio tuner.
The cassette and 8 track players were later replaced with CD players. Sony Corp. 1978 Released 1980 in US The walkman was one of the first portable music devices. It played cassette tapes. The cassette tape was plastic on the outside protecting the magnetic tape attached to two spools on the inside. When the tape goes from one spool to another the audio tracks play continuously. James T. Russell 1982 James Russell came up with the idea of the CD Player in the mid 1960s. He wanted to invent something that was more durable than a vinyl record. The CD is a piece of plastic with the music encoded on it in ones and zeros. The numbers are burned into
the CD ridges and into the plastic. It is then
covered in a layer of aluminum which the
ridges stick out of and is read by
a laser. 1997 The MP3 player had a flash memory, meaning a solid state memory with no moving parts. This allowed a cleaner and better quality of sound. You would download the songs instead of having to carry around cassette tapes or CDs. Frauhofer-Gesellshaft A German company Steve Jobs Apple 2001 The first Ipod was only compatible with Mac and Itunes. It only had 5 gigabytes and was $400. In 2002 a compatible version with windows was released. The Ipod also had more storage space. Steve Jobs Apple 2005 The Ipod nano was the second generation of the ipod family. It had touch controls, was slimmer, and had a colored screen. Steve Jobs Apple 2007 The Iphone had the regular features of any other phone and was touch screen. It had a data package allowing you to use the internet or your email. You could listen to music and play games on it by downloading apps. The Itouch was the first Ipod to have a toush-sensitive screen and have Wi Fi capability. You can listen to music, us the internet, if Wi Fi is available, and download apps. 2007 Steve Jobs Apple Steve Jobs Apple 2010 The Ipad features similar things to the Itouch but with a larger screen display. With the Ipad you can still surf the web, play games, and listen to music. Louis glass 1930s 1889 Louis Glass invented a jukebox device in 1889. His device was a phonograph that was coin operated. The Jukebox became more popular in the 1930s and on. The 1930s version of the jukebox had more of an affect than the 1889s version. The jukebox was very popular because it allowed you to pick the
song you wanted to listen to, with a small fee, which radio would not allow you to do. Activity 1.1.2 – Product Evolution
