Richard began to experiment in the driveway of his home at 212 Thomas Avenue, New Jersey . Richard mounted a 1928 Kodak projector on the hood of his car; he used it to project onto a screen he had nailed to trees in his backyard. He placed a radio behind the screen for sound, and then started the test of his idea. Richard tested sound with the windows up, down and half way. He tested many weather conditions; using his lawn sprinkler he simulated a rainstorm. Richard liked what he saw and heard. It was invented on June 6,1933.
