Who is Thomas Edison and what did he do?
Thomas Edison was a very famous inventor who was known for
inventing the light bulb. The light bulb wasn't his idea, but he
was able to make one that was good enough to sell and to be known
to the public. He also invented the phonograph, which was able to
record and replay sounds. He invented the kinetoscope, which was
able to make simulate movements with many sequential photos that
moved across a high speed shutter that was viewed through a peep
hole on top of the cabinet that contained all of these things.
Those were his most famous inventions. There are many things that
are describable about Thomas Edison. He worked A LOT and didn't pay
much attention to his family. He was always trying to be better
than other inventors like Nicola Tesla who helped improve a lot of
his inventions. He started to become slightly deaf throughout his
life, which he liked because he could concentrate on his work. Any
way, I'd might as well copy and paste the research book that I
wrote for my honors class onto this because there is so much
information on him.
