To Egyptians, condom-like glans caps were dyed in different colours to distinguish between different classes of people and to protect themselves against bilharzia.

The Ancient Romans used the bladders of animals to protect the woman; they were worn not to prevent pregnancy but to prevent contraction of venereal diseases. Charles Goodyear, the inventor, utilized vulcanization, the process of transforming rubber into malleable structures, to produce latex condoms. The greater use of condoms all over the world in the 20 th and 21 st centuries has been related to HIV.

The voice was that of Reginald Fessenden , an inventor and engineer who had been working on producing voice radio since Marconi’s first wireless broadcast across the Atlantic.

After his Christmas experiment, Fessenden continued working to make voice radio practical. In , Lee de Forest invented a new radio tube called the Audion. It soon made transmitting sound modulations much more effective and became standard radio equipment. The radio tube was gradually improved upon by other inventors, to increased clarity and power. For 15 years or so, voice radio was the purview of engineers and hobbyists called hams. To most people it seemed amusing, but a novelty that would have no practical application.

One obstacle to radio’s acceptance was that the equipment was cumbersome and required a fair amount of knowledge and attention. After World War I, prosperity and technological advances — some the offspring of the war effort — brought more appliances into the home and created more technologically minded people. Radio companies formed to build and sell ready-made machines.
