Local Motors Celebrates Black History Month

February 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Local Motors for an electrifying presentation from Dr. James West, co-inventor of the electret microphone. This is a type of condenser microphone upon which 90 percent of all microphones used today (such as in telephones, sound and music recording equipment, and hearing aids) are based. Dr. West developed the invention with his research partner Gerhard Sessler in 1962 while both were scientists at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hills, NJ.

This is an event you don’t want to miss. Dr. West will not only speak about black inventions and contributions to society, but also share what he is currently working on. The inventions are endless and we want you to be front and center for this historical figure. To register, please visit the website.
