||The Geochron was invented by James Kilburg, a career
mechanical engineer who perfected his craft and knack for
ingenuity while living in Luxembourg, his native land.
After moving to America, Kilburg devoted his life creating
innovations such as the car cigarette lighter (still in
use today), the first automatic dialing telephone, as well
as an automated maraschino cherry pitter.
Yet ironically, his crowning achievement may never have
been invented were it not for his wife, Dorothy. The year
was 1962, and Kilburg was overseas visiting relatives. Unable
to make the trip, one day Dorothy picked up the phone to
call him. With some help from the international operator,
she got through. Unfortunately for her husband, it happened
to be 2:00 a.m. From that moment on, Kilburg had all the
inspiration he needed to create the world's first accurate
time machine. A year later, the Geochron was born.
