Innovations That Changed The World (Martin Cooper)
Technology is redefining our daily lives. From the way we interact with one another, to the way we work, and even the way we play. "Full Frame" host Mike Walters speaks to visionaries whose innovations that changed the world, including Martin Cooper, father of the cell phone, and Allen Blue, co-founder of LinkedIn.
The one object many of us use, and most would not want to live without, is our cell phone. In 1973, as the corporate director of Research and Development at Motorola, Martin Cooper led the team of engineers that conceived a truly portable telephone. And, on April 3, 1973, Martin made the first phone call using a truly portable device. Since then, mobile phones have changed the way people live all around the world. In 2014, the number of mobile subscriptions, worldwide, exceeded the human population at 7.22 billion.
Innovator Martin Cooper joins Mike Walter to talk about the history and future of cell phones.
