Edourard-Leon Scott de Matrinville was born in Paris, France back in 1817. Unlike most of my blogs this one will be considerably short, so let’s get to it. He was a printer by trade reading the latest scientific discoveries prompting him to be an inventor.
He started working on his invention in 1853, in January of 1857 he delivered his design in a sealed envelope to the French Academy. Two months later he received the French patent 17,897/31,470 for his invention. He died in 1879 at a young 62.
What you may not know about Edorard-Leon Scott de Martinville is that his invention was called the phonauthgraph which is the earliest known sound recording device. I believe his invention has gone through some upgrades over the years, don’t you? Anyway, until tomorrow keep that smile on your face and a penny in your pocket.
