Coin-operated music boxes and player pianos were the first forms of automated coin-operated musical devices. Jukeboxes were most popular from the 1940s through the mid-1960s, particularly during the 1950s. By the middle of the 1940s, three-quarters of the records produced in America went into jukeboxes. While often associated with early rock and roll music, their popularity extends back much further, including classical music, opera, and the swing music era.
The Model 302 telephone is a desk set telephone that was manufactured in the United States by Western Electric from 1936 until production of entirely new units ceased about 1954, after the introduction of the modern model 500 telephone in 1949. The model 302 is a member of the 300-series telephones and was developed by the industrial design firm of Henry Dreyfuss. It was the first widely used American telephone to include the ringer and network circuitry in the same telephone housing.

Peter Behrens AEG fan
This table fan, designed by Peter Behrens, was introduced in 1908 by Allgemeine Elektricitäts Gesellschaft (A.E.G.), the successor to DEG (Deutsche Edison Gesellschaft), a German company originally founded 1883 by Emil Rathenau based on Edison’s light bulb. AEG was the German equivalent of General Electric in the US. Combining all this with shining propellers and wire-basket guards, both of polished brass, Behrens thus created a novel type of industrial aesthetic, which lent his range of aeg fans and other products their unique character and identified them as aeg products.
After their invention in the 1860s, typewriters quickly became indispensable tools for practically all writing other than personal correspondence. They were widely used by professional writers, in offices, and for business correspondence in private homes. By the end of the 1980s, word processors, and personal computers had largely displaced typewriters in most of these uses in the Western world, but as of the 2010’s the typewriter is still prominent in many parts of the world including India.
Thomas Edison Lightbulb
Edison did not invent the first electric light bulb but instead invented the first commercially practical incandescent light. Many earlier inventors had previously devised incandescent lamps, including Alessandro Volta’s demonstration of a glowing wire in 1800 and inventions by Henry Woodward and Mathew Evans. Others who developed early and commercially impractical incandescent electric lamps included Humphry Davy, James Bowman Lindsay, Moses G. Farmer, William E. Sawyer, Joseph Swan and Heinrich Göbel. Some of these early bulbs had such flaws as an extremely short life, high expense to produce, and high electric current drawn, making them difficult to apply on a large scale commercially
