One of the Founding Fathers that shaped the United States, Benjamin Franklin was also an author, a scientist, a diplomat, and a prolific inventor who developed several life-changing inventions. Inaddition to helping draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, Franklin served as the first Postmaster General, Minister to Sweden and France, and the 6th President of Pennsylvania.
Benjamin Franklin was one of the most extraordinary human beings the world has ever known, and a list of his inventions reveals a man of many talents and interests. His melodic glass armonica was undoubtedly one of his more eclectic creations. The instrument worked on the same principle as running a wet finger around a wine glass to create sound - but by rotating precision-tuned glasses, he was able to create hauntingly beautiful music.
