Star Trek and the AmpCoil By Deb Posted 2/12/2019
Martin Cooper invented the mobile phone in 1973, inspired by Star Trek. On April the 3rd 1973, Martin Cooper took cellular phone technology to New York City to demonstrate it to the public where a call was made while standing on Sixth Avenue.
He called Joel Engel, who was the AT&T general manager, to tell him that the race to perfect cellular tech was over, and that Motorola won the race. He said, "Joel, this is Marty Cooper, I'd like you to know that I'm calling you from a cellular phone."
Our cell phones came into existence because someone watching Star Trek in the 1960's thought the communicators were a cool thing. Cooper's vision for a personal wireless hand held telephone was inspired by watching Captain Kirk using his communicator on the television show Star Trek.
This video does an excellent job of explaining how the AmpCoil works. Just because something seems impossible does not mean that it is not true. What is science now was once science fiction.
