Thomas A. Edison, sometimes called the Wizard of Menlo Park, was one of the most productive inventors the world has ever seen, holding over 1,000 patents. Although it's been thought that he invented the electric light bulb, Edison and his team greatly improved the light design with a long lasting filament. Edison had also improved the fluoroscope (x-ray), greatly affecting his eyesight and fatally overdosing his assistant, Clarence Dalley, with radiation. The Wizard's phonograph was the first device ever to record and play recorded sounds. Edison was also one of the first inventors to employ the processes of mass production.
