tin can phone
William was asking about the comparative sound of tin-can phones with other low tech or old tech sounds. I started to fall into dad-mode and make up answers but then had to admit that I'd not tried to make a tin-can phone since I was 8 or 9 years old and even then, I likely didn''t make it efficiently. So we made one. It's not great. The sound over four meters is just a series of vibrations that are hit and miss to translate into actual words.
