Dr. Martin Cooper- Inventions By: Kelsey Johnson

Dr. Martin Cooper invented the cell phone. The cell phone was invented in 1973 while he was working for Motorala. I beleive it took him 17 years to have the communtication be clear between the two phones. He invented the cell phone because he didn't have anything else to do, also because he wanted to make his mother's dreams come true so he invented a protable phone and made the first call to his mother. There weren't any problems during the process of making the phone that I know of. The cell phone has impacted society ALOT, in both good and bad ways. Bad ways meaning texting and driving which can lead to car accident, which can lead to death. Good ways are now you can get ahold of someone in moments notice. Dr Martin Cooper has created one of the greatest inventions of this Earth. If it wasn't for him, we might not have any way of communicating with people in another city, state, or even counrty.
