homas Alva Edison was one of the greatest inventors in history. During his life he made thousands of inventions and obtained over 1000 patents. Patents protected his inventions from other people using his work or selling his inventions. His inventions have changed the world forever. Thomas Edison was born on February 11, 1847 in Milan, Ohio.
Since Bell had a curiosity of sounds and vibrations he made numerous inventions like the de-husker, that could husk corn efficiently. A few years later he moved to London to live with his strict grandfather who taught him science. Soon after, he accepted a job for being a teacher to the deaf and fell in love with his student. Mabel was the girl that he loved but during that time he had to create his invention, so he did not spend a lot of time with her. While Alex was thinking about how his device would work he asked the help of Thomas Watson, a man who worked at an electrical shop, to be his partner.
One of the biggest problems Edison and his employees faced was finding a filament that allowed the bulb to glow without breaking (Dolan 6). He overcame this obstacle in 1880 with the carbonized bamboo fiber allowing the bulb to glow bright without breaking. Another major accident occurred during Edison's usual laboratory routine when his workers put too much current through a motor causing some discs they were experimenting with to fly around (Dolan 46). Luckily, as a result, no one was hurt. Because of the obstacles he worked hard to overcome, he impacted modern day technology.
