Ben's Glass Armonica
I just read a fun news story about Benjamin Franklin. It points out that his inventions included much more than the kite and the key. Their description of the glass armonica reminded of when I was in Philadelphia several years ago and got to see one of those. We even got to hear someone playing it. I thought it was fascinating, and the music was very unusual and very beautiful. I wish I had one!
