There wns no syn- ironixaticn, only the simple put- tofothor ol an image and innd movement. Hi-r Idea Born nut this stirred the Imagination the Inventor. He concluded thnt 10 fault with this new moving .cturc idea was that it had no oimU effect to make it realistic, o lie went to work. Tn the followhirj year, April 3, aron took out his first patent on system of synchronizing move- icnt and accompanying sound.

A feeble ! urrent inodulatcti by these micro- hones wfis amplified by three suc- relays leading to th-e sound •foiii at one side. Sound was rcg-, 'tercd on an old-fashioned wax ylinrier. such as used by Edison i ills first phonographs, so that it vnehroiiiwd perfectly with the ac- icn of t!'? movie. In principle his system was very iitcli like that developed with uch startling success a quarter of century later.
