Answering Machine

Willy Muller invented the first device in 1935, which can answer the telephone and take a message by itself. Unfortunately his answerphone was around 3 feet tall and took up too much space.

A pioneering answerphone in Britain in the early 1970s was the Ipsophone, which was manufactured in Switzerland. It weighed 125kg and it took up to three days to install.

An Association poll revealed that one third of dog owners talk to their dogs on the phone or leave messages on an answering machine while away.
