Thomas Alva Edison perfected the first commercially viable incandescent light bulb, giving a sensational public demonstration of it on December 31, 1879. The light bulb and many other inventions were developed at Edison's laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey, which many consider the first industrial research laboratory. Later Edison moved his operations to West Orange, New Jersey, which is the current site of the Thomas Edison National Historical Park. "It Happened Here: New Jersey" is a production of Kean University, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission. Additional funding is provided by the Brotherton Trust and AT&T. The series is narrated by Willie Geist, and produced by PCK Media. For more information about New Jersey's 350th Anniversary, visit www.officialnj350.com.

But then he had a brilliant thought. Electric lights would help a lot! Now others too had tried their best To build a bulb that passed the test, And yet their light would never last. The glowing part burned out too fast! "I see," said Tom, "I must invent A better, stronger filament!" At first he tried some metal wire, Which melted, broke, or caught on fire! So next he tested strips of wood And every single plant he could! He had to char them first, he learned, To make them glow but not get burned. Grasses, reeds, and weeds galore! He tried six thousand kinds, and more! He had some luck with cotton thread, But then he tried bamboo instead. It filled the room with dazzling rays! What's more, it lasted fifty days! And now, the light bulb's golden glare Is seen in houses everywhere! New York and London! France! Brazil! The bulbs keep getting better still! They light the night when day is done, All thanks to Thomas Edison!

Ever wondered what the first electric bulbs looked like? Did you know that bulbs were made by hand?In 1890 Thomas Edison made electric bulbs commercially available & set up the first electric utility company.In the initial years you had to lease the hand crafted electric bulbs, and it was only later you could buy the bulbs. We have come a long way since 1879.

Learning from Mistakes Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.” Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.” http://www.rnproductions.in/ https://www.facebook.com/rnproductions.in https://twitter.com/rnproductions7 https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105293217304047209414/105293217304047209414/posts

The Story of Thomas A. Edison From the 1991 series "Famous Americans of the 20th Century," produced by Hearst Entertainment and distributed by Questar Video, Inc. ISBN 0-927992-53-1 From the box: "Live action footage capturing the life of Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the movie camera. Thomas Alva Edison was born on February 11, 1847, in Milan, Ohio, into a world eager for new ways to release man from toil and tedium. During his life, Edison would give man the incandescent light, motion picture camera, phonograph, microphone, carbon telephone transmitter (which made Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone commercially practical), and more than 1,000 other inventions. Edison’s formal schooling was short, but he was inquisitive. His knowledge was acquired by independent study and training. At 11, he had his own chemical laboratory and had read Gibbon’s Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, Sear’s History of the World, Burton’s Anatomy of Melancholy, and the Dictionary of Sciences. At 12, he had his first job as a newsboy on the Grand Trunk Railroad. At 13, he suffered hearing loss which would be permanent. During this period a dramatic event changed his life. He saved a station agent’s child from sure death by a moving freight car. The grateful father taught Edison telegraphy which inspired his interest in electricity, a word that would be associated with the name Edison forever. Edison travelled to Boston, working for Western Union. His first invention, a ballot counter, earned him nothing. Edison’s second invention, the Universal Stock Printer, earned him $40,000. He used the funds to open a factory in Newark, New Jersey, in 1870. Working 20 to 24 days, Edison built Menlo Park laboratories to devote more time to invention. The phonograph was Edison’s favorite and probably most original invention. Edison worked long and hard on the incandescent electric lamp. It burned brightly for the first time on October 21, 1879. Edison also believed that motion could be captured by a camera that would take repeated pictures in high speed, and on October 6, 1889, experimental motion pictures were projected; the first commercial picture was shown five years later on April 4, 1894. Edison then developed the fluoroscope and the alkaline storage battery. During WWI, Edison headed the Naval Consulting Board. His friend, Henry Ford, believed Edison to be the greatest genius the world had ever known. Edison died on October 18, 1931, at 84.”

Considered one of Thomas Edison's most famous innovations, the electric bulb changed the world we live in by literally putting the power to control light at our fingertips. Before electric lighting became common in the early 20th century, people used candles, gas lights, oil lamps, and fires. Humphry Davy developed the first incandescent light in 1802, followed by the first practical electric arc light in 1806. By the 1870s, Davy's arc lamp had been successfully commercialized, and was used to light many public spaces. The development of a steadily glowing filament suitable for interior lighting took longer, but by the early twentieth century inventors had successfully developed options, replacing the arc light with incandescents. The energy efficiency of electric lighting has increased radically since the first demonstration of arc lamps and the incandescent light bulb of the 19th century. Modern electric light sources come in a profusion of types and sizes adapted to myriad applications. Most modern electric lighting is powered by centrally generated electric power, but lighting may also be powered by mobile or standby electric generators or battery systems. Battery-powered light is often reserved for when and where stationary lights fail, often in the form of flashlights, electric lanterns, and in vehicles.

A public domain video Thomas Edison talking about the invention of the light bulb, late 1920s. Newsreel clip from the Motion Picture Division of the U.S. National Archives. "Before starting experiments on the incandescent electric light system, many memorndums were drawn up as to a general system that would permit a subdivision of the light into small units analogous to gas jets and with commercial economy superior to the prevailing gas system. The thought was, if it was to be successful, all the units must be worked in multiply. This necessitated the creation of lamps of very high resistance to diminish the enormous investment in copper if necessary, if lower resistance lamps were to be used. (For the safety??) This necessitated identifying hair-like filaments of high air-resistance material. On October twenty-first 1871, numerous experiments resulted in the production of a small unit lamp of comparatively enormous resistance. The filament being? under conditions of great stability after this result, I knew the problem approached commercial solution. As these lamp experiments continued, other parts of the general system was actively experimented upon. The dynamo, as then invoked, was extremely inefficient; the loss approaching fifty percent due to some misunderstanding among electricians which I never comprehended. However, these experiments produced a dynamo of which ninety percent of the energy was useful. Then meters for measuring the current were used by thousands of customers and also a host of accessories like underground conduit, circuits, sockets, et cetera were necessary to make a complete system of distribution, all of which was accomplish..."

Thomas Edison -Inventor Welcome to the VOA Special English program, PEOPLE IN AMERICA. Today, Sarah Long and Bob Doughty tell about the inventor Thomas Alva Edison. He had a major effect on the lives of people around the world. Thomas Edison is remembered most for the electric light, his phonograph and his work with motion pictures. Thomas Edison's major inventions were designed and built in the last years of the eighteen hundreds. However, most of them had their greatest effect in the twentieth century. His inventions made possible the progress of technology. It is extremely difficult to find anyone living today who has not been affected in some way by Thomas Edison. Most people on Earth have seen some kind of motion picture or heard some kind of sound recording. And almost everyone has at least seen an electric light. These are only three of the many devices Thomas Edison invented or helped to improve. People living in this century have had easier and more enjoyable lives because of his inventions. Thomas Alva Edison was born on February eleventh, eighteen forty-seven in the small town of Milan, Ohio. He was the youngest of seven children. Thomas Edison was self-taught. He went to school for only three months. His teacher thought he could not learn because he had a mental problem. But young Tom Edison could learn. He learned from books and he experimented. At the age of ten, he built his own chemical laboratory. He experimented with chemicals and electricity. He built a telegraph machine and quickly learned to send and receive telegraph messages. At the time, sending electric signals over wires was the fastest method of sending information long distances. At the age of sixteen, he went to work as a telegraph operator. He later worked in many different places. He continued to experiment with electricity. When he was twenty-one, he sent the United States government the documents needed to request the legal protection for his first invention. The government gave him his first patent on an electric device he called an Electrographic Vote Recorder. It used electricity to count votes in an election. In the summer months of eighteen sixty-nine, the Western Union Telegraph Company asked Thomas Edison to improve a device that was used to send financial information. It was called a stock printer. Mr. Edison very quickly made great improvements in the device. The company paid him forty thousand dollars for his effort. That was a lot of money for the time.

Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 -- October 18, 1931) was an American inventor and businessman. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0786860413/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0786860413&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=29c8d7574818365246b060d358b69e25 He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and because of that, he is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory. Edison was a prolific inventor, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. More significant than the number of Edison's patents, are the impacts of his inventions, because Edison not only invented things, his inventions established major new industries world-wide, notably, electric light and power utilities, sound recording and motion pictures. Edison's inventions contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. These included a stock ticker, a mechanical vote recorder, a battery for an electric car, electrical power, recorded music and motion pictures. His advanced work in these fields was an outgrowth of his early career as a telegraph operator. Edison developed a system of electric-power generation and distribution to homes, businesses, and factories -- a crucial development in the modern industrialized world. His first power station was on Pearl Street in Manhattan, New York. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Edison Thomas Edison has appeared in popular culture as a character in novels, films, comics and video games.

The Schoolhouse Rock song "Mother Necessity" featured Thomas Edison first as a child intending to be an inventor when he grows up "to make a lamp to help my mommy see..Wowee!/What an excellent application of electricity!" and then as a smart, rich man. Edison occasionally appeared in caricature form on Histeria! His first major appearance was in a sketch in which he comes up with the light bulb while his nephew (played by Loud Kiddington) and his friends fool around in his office. The show also featured a song about Edison's partnership with Henry Ford. "Edison's Medicine" was a song by the band Tesla from the album Psychotic Supper Tesla which features the War of Currents between Edison's DC and Tesla's AC. "The Wizard of Menlo Park" is a song by Chumbawamba on their album Un. The song "Edison" by the Bee Gees from their 1969 album Odessa is a reference about Thomas Edison.

Edison, the King of Inventors Edison made the machine the company president wanted a week after he started working on it. Being very satisfied, the president gave Edison 40,000 dollars. Edison used the money to set up a factory in New Jersey and began to make a stock price indicator. His business was prosperous and earned a lot of money. "Now I can work for invention as I want it." Edison worked like an ant over 18 hours a day for invention. People struggled to own many things invented by Edison. "I really want to do true inventions rather than make money. I think I can't do so here." At last Edison moved to a quiet village in the country with his wife Mary. And he set up a small laboratory, where he devoted himself to invention. One day Edison called people and said, "I will make a machine that will produce human voice." The people laughed at Edison's remark. But Edison really invented a phonograph that produced human voice some time later. All the people were greatly surprised. Still, Edison's invention continued. Big factories and buildings used electric light bulbs, but households used gas lamps. "How can I make it possible to use light bulbs at a household through an electric power generator?" Edison carried out a lot of researches on it. 'Success!' After doing researches for over one year, Edison succeeded in making an incandescent electric lamp that could be used at several households. As a result, households could use incandescent lamps instead of gas lamps. Edison ended his life at the age of 34 in 1931 after inventing plenty of things that could make life more comfortable. Many people mourned his death and wished he had lived longer. "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration." He made this famous remark. On the day when he ended his life, people turned on the electric light bulbs brighter than the stars in the night sky to express their grief over his death.
