the first people to produce films I must say I got totally impressed by the fact that he wanted to create what the world needed Read his own words I find out what the world needs Then I go ahead and try to invent it Many consider him the greatest inventor in the American History 1,093 patents I had the brilliant idea of writing this review Should I draw an electric lamp here Pun Not only did Thomas Edison invent the lamp, but he also invented a movie camera and projector He was one of the first people to produce films I must say I got totally impressed by the fact that he wanted to create what the world needed Read his own words I find out what the world needs Then I go ahead and try to invent it Many consider him the greatest inventor in the American History 1,093 patents granted highest number ever issued to a person.You must be thinking he was superb at school I m afraid to say that he was not patient to memorise lessons Therefore, he quit it at an early age and his mother taught him at home In addition, she would read Charles Dickens to him and make Thomas become familiar with Shakespeare Among the books he read, there was an elementary science book titled Natural Philosophy He was 9 years old by then and described it as the first book he could understand.Still in his childhood, he had scarlet fever, which may have caused him a partial loss of hearing However, he never let this disability hold him back and stated that he wasn t easily distracted because he couldn t hear much.In his teens, he started working on the railroad and had a huge interest in the telegraph He built his own telegraph system and sent messages in Morse Code Later on, when he introduced the idea of modern research laboratory, which many companies use today, he would call his workers muckers , and himself the chief mucker Working for him was difficult for he wanted his employees to work as hard as he did Thus, working long into the night and weekends were common things He liked sleeping late and reading numerous newspapers.What about his love life Edison met Mary Stillwell through one of his employees in 1871 He hired Stillwell and courted her in a different way he would visit the shop and stand and admire her Thomas taught her the Morse Code and when he called on Mary at home he talked to her in private by tapping dots and dashes in her palm when her parents were around Edison had 3 children with her Despite the fact that he loved his kids, he hardly saw them because he was always involved with his inventions By the way, when he invented the electric lamp, he said there would be an exhibition of lightning on New Year s Eve 31st December 1879, over 3,000 people flooded Menlo Park and were fascinated by the lights on trees leading to his laboratory.After some time, his wife passed away and he fell in love again with Mina Miller, who was the daughter of a wealthy manufacturer from Ohio He proposed her using the Morse Code by tapping this question on her hand HOW ROMANTIC On 21st October, 1929, Americans celebrated the 50th anniversary of the electric light and it was called Lights Golden Jubilee With the presence of Henry Ford and other important people, Edison recreated the experiment of the electric light during the ceremony, yet he turned deathly pale after his speech He had diabetes and stomach ulcers and passed away on 18th October 1931 Last but not least, I d like to include some curious facts as well as his quotations Facts He asked his mother what hatch was and later on was found sitting on a nest of goose and chicken eggs, trying to hatch them When the eggs didn t, he was disappointed Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, but Edison produced a version of it with a louder and clearer sound Edison invented the phonograph and to test it, he spoke these words Mary had a little lamb,Its fleece was white as snow,And everywhere that Mary wentThe lamb was sure to go He was nicknamed the Wizard of Menlo Park Alexander Graham Bell worked to improve the phonograph, which made Thomas furious because he didn t like anyone tinkering with his favourite invention Thomas invented a new phonograph and business boomed It was an easy instrument to use Even a child can operate it, he said Thomas built the first motion picture studio called Black Maria in his West Orange laboratory The building could rotate to follow the sun Edward S Porter worked for him as a film director and produced The Great Train Robbery It was the first film to have a plot Edison worked on a system to deliver electricity into homes, offices, and factories He picked New York for the location of this system Thomas rented a mansion at 65 Fifth Avenue for the headquarters of his project We all know the fame New York has, yet we hardly know that Edison s project contributed so much for this city He saw the good side of things For instance, a fire destroyed his factory in December 1914 Edison stood and watched the blaze but his face was calm He asked his son to get his wife and her friends over there because they would never see a fire like that again Quotations Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety nine percent perspiration I am long on ideas but short on time That s all, folks I hope you get 1% inspired as I did I feel like buying a Science book I may not invent anything, yet the fact that we use our brains for something useful is a brilliant idea lightbulb here With a light Larissa Fauber Morse Code A B C D..E.F.G.H.I..J K L.M N.O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z..1 2 3 4 5..6.7 8..9.0 Click here to
