The Voder: Bell Telephone's Electronic Spokesman at the 1939 NYWF

Recommended Posts

A good friend alerted me to this fascinating story from Atlas Obscura about the Bell Telephone Pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair. I've read before about a breakthrough electronic voice technology showcased there by Bell Labs called THE VODER-- but until this article (which includes an embedded YouTube recording), I'd never actually gotten to hear the device "speak." Pretty cool stuff.
