Ever since human culture was created, there were innumerable inventions. The wheel is one of the most significant innovations that changed the destiny of human culture. Ironically, we still don’t know the name of the individual or group of men who devised it.
In earlier days, many inventions were the result of a process of development of ideas. Since standardization of scientific methodologies started taking shape, many inventions and historians arose.
One of the most influential inventors in human history was Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931). You will find more than 1,000 patents in their own name, a rare accomplishment to be accomplished by a person. His genius also helped the industrial use of his creations. His participation in this context is invaluable, because he’s credited with initiating bulk production of advanced products.
Edison was from a bad family. So were lots of different inventors. It’s the series to do something different, to make something new, which distinguishes an inventor out of a normal human being. It’s still debatable that if historians have been born geniuses, or when people of average IQ be trained to become amateurs.
Past experience has proven that it isn’t essential to become a trained scientist or a specialist like Anthony Nobles to become an inventor. Both primary elements which go into the making of an inventor will be a curious nature and logical thinking.
Until the early years of the 20th century, historians did not earn much money from their creations. They often invented things that were useful and expired unsung heroes. But now, with increasing focus on new creations and the tendency of business to customize them for business purposes, many historians have made from paupers into billionaires. New patent legislation all around the world has assured that an inventor’s potential creation may continue to reap the rewards in the form of royalties.
