Interview with Inventor Max sharing his invention and future work:
Cynthia L. Fox Barney: How did your design for the phonograph come about?
Max: Well, I felt like designing something. First I made a large airplane out of cardboard but that fell apart. Then I thought about Thomas Edison and I got my answer. I thought about this object and where the wires needed to go. I was close to failing but just kept working and working. I didn’t make the horn for my phonograph because it wouldn’t fit in my box. I purchased several items at Michael’s and then used items I had at home too.
Cynthia L. Fox Barney: What would you like to design next?
Max: Well, I like the designer Thomas Anderson but I would like to create a safer Titanic. I think his design was pretty good but not for the passengers. I think my ship would be more electronic. Of course, for the design I would have four smoke stacks like the original ship.
