This is how the first transistor worked [Tech]
posted March 17 2013 20:18.55 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Watch Bill Hammack, the engineering guy explaining how the first transistor was made. He uses a replica of the point contact transistor built by Walter Brattain and John Bardeen at Bell Labs. On December 23, 1947 they used this device to amplify the output of a microphone and thus started the microelectronics revolution that changed the world.

The world was never going to be the same again after that day (and isn't)
