Gramophones

Another passion of mine, Gramophones. Everytime I see one, I shiver. I feel like they are haunted somehow..Have you ever noticed that in almost every movie that talks about ghosts or presences, there is always a gramophone?? :P  Since they were used also to record voice, maybe presences tried to communicate with us through these machines. That's why I feel uncomfortable when I see a gramophone..but still I like them a lot. They attract me. When I'll go live alone I will surely buy one. I'll dedicate an entire room to it *-* When I'll be old I will be swinging on a rocking chair by the window, listening to old music with a gramophone while caressing a cat..

What is it exactly?

The phonograph (sound writer), record player, or gramophone (letter + sound) is a device introduced in 1877 that continued common use until the 1980s for reproducing (playing) sound recordings, although when first developed, the phonograph was used to both record and reproduce sounds. The recordings played on such a device generally consist of wavy lines that are either scratched, engraved, or grooved onto a rotating cylinder or disc. As the cylinder or disc rotates, a needle or other similar object on the device traces the wavy lines and vibrates, reproducing sound waves.

It was invented by Thomas Edison and later improved by Alexander Graham Bell and Alessando Volta.
