Thomas Edison's Least Successful Invention: The Spirit Phone

In the late 1920s, Thomas Edison reportedly gathered with other scientists in a secret laboratory to record the voices and presence of the dead. They used speakers, generators, and other experimental equipment.

Edison later disclaimed the idea, telling the New York Times in 1926 that he really had nothing to tell them, but he hated to disappoint them so he thought up this story about communicating with spirits, but it was all a joke.
