Photophone
The Photophone is an Optical Telephone, originally invented by Alexander Graham Bell and Charles Sumner Tainter in February 1880. Challenger has refined the design, incorporating his luminiferous aether theories, such that it is now a portable unit that can send and transmit sound through a larger base unit that might be housed in a carriage.
