Thomas Edison is one of the most prolific inventors of his time. For example, we owe the bulb’s filament, the phonograph, the kinetograph, etc. This entrepreneur at heart was born in Milan in Ohio to the United States on February 11, 1847.
He deposited not less than 1093 patents. It’s in 1879 which manages the tour de force to throw the race to electric lighting with a light bulb that fries in 40 hours. A feat while all the other bulbs are hardly the 30 hours of use before… grill.
The feat of Edison is to design a filament to incandescence in charred cotton fiber that resists heat better in a glass vial. If you were present at this time, you remember no doubt of the cheers from the enthusiastic crowd. Americans were finally able to move gas and oil for light.
Although in 1879 not being asked about the issue of energy dependence… All that interested the public is to have a way to light up less dangerous than gas or oil that have replaced the candles there is not long on the historical scale.
In 1890, Thomas Edison founded the Edison General Electric Company, which would become 2 years later by merging with a competitor General Electric. This large American company still exists today.
In 1915, once more he revolutionised our everyday life by inventing the alkaline battery. But that of another story…
Google who definitely likes to surprise us with its famous Google Doodle, offers us so to honor him a schema driven to find in his Gallery of logos.
