I helped Ted develop the now infamous tram. Used extensively on broadway after
it was developed. Yes "Ted Rapp and Mom" is correct. He was also an Air Force
Reserve Pilot. Yes he was cautious because we sold to many agencies and
companies that preferred to remain "offline " in todays parlance. A great
friend, mechanical genius. Developed and manufactured the units in his home. I
helped him sort through thousands of elements for sensitiity and frequency
response. That was the secret sauce.
