Thomas Edison was one of the greatest scientists that invented and improved upon things that transformed our world In his lifetime Edison patented for more than a thousand inventions earning him the nickname The Wizard of Menlo Park The most famous of his inventions was an incandescent light bulb Other inventions like the phonograph the carbon telephone transmitter and the motion-picture projector are very famous too In addition he created the worlds first industrial research laboratory which is at the village of Menlo Park NJ Some of the inventions he did not come up with the ideas on his own He had others help him and work with him and just about all his inventions are things we still use in some form today Throughout his career Edison consciously directed his studies to devices that could satisfy real needs and come into popular use Indeed it may be said that in applying himself to technology he was fulfilling the ideals of democracy for he centered his attention upon projects that would increase the convenience and pleasure of mankind The reason why I chose Thomas Edison to write about is because light bulb is a very essential invention in our daily life Back in the 1800s people have to stop what they were doing when the night arrives and prepare to go to sleep or light up a candle or lantern if their family could afford it And because of Edisons invention night is no longer dark and scary to others He promised people that he would invent a safe mild and inexpensive electric light that would replace the gaslight in millions of homes moreover he would accomplish this by an entirely different method of current distribution from that used for arc lights And I personally admired his invention because I cannot live without light and I believe everybody is like that
