In honor of Edison’s 164th birthday, Google has created yet another great logo for the day. The logo (shown above) features a few moving parts and a glowing light bulb.
PC Magazine looks at some of the great things that Thomas Edison did when he was alive.
Edison, an inventor who was dubbed the “Wizard of Menlo Park” (now Edison, NJ), is most famous for his contributions to electric light. Though he did not come up with the concept on his own, he built on the contributions of others to create a lightbulb that was practical for home use.
Throughout his life, however, Edison was awarded more than 1,000 patents, creating everything from the phonograph to an automatic vote recorder.
Edison was born in Ohio in 1847 and died on October 18, 1931.
