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.
