A flyswatter, usually consisting of a small rectangular sheet of flexible material, is a handheld device for smashing flies and other insects. The material is vented, thus reducing wind drag making it move faster in order to hit the target. The beginning flyswatters were just a striking surface attached to the end of a long stick. Dr. Samuel Crumbine was trying to raise awareness of the fly problem in Kansas in 1905 when he coined the term "swat the fly". Frank H. Rose created the "fly...

Lee De Forest invented the Audion, a forerunner of the triode, which is an amplifying vacuum tube. The grid controls the filament which sends the current from the filament. The Audion can detect radio signals by applying a small amount of power to the grid that can control a larger current from the filament plate. However, De Forest's Audion is distinct from the true vacuum triode since it is not capable of linear amplification. De Forest found that when gas was in a partial vacuum heated...

However, a similar machine was documented by Johan Carl Wilcke in 1762. He changed his focus to chemistry in...
