Do you know who invented Incandescent Light Bulb, we were using at home a few decades back. Thomas Alva Edison filed a patent for his electric lamp. But who Invented actually?

Many of us give up in life only with few tries to achieve something big and say I am failed but there was a person named Thomas Edison, he replied to a reporter as below.

“How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” “Great success is built on failure, frustration, even catastrophy.”

History of Incandescent Light Bulb Invention

Based on the successful but impractical platinum incandescent light of Humphry Davy, which he developed in 1802, Lindsay managed to create a more usable form of the bulb.

After obtaining a position as a professor at the Watt Institution in Dundee, Scotland, James Bowman Lindsay began experimenting with constant electric light in 1829. He demonstrated his invention at a public meeting in Dundee (1835).

How Does the Light Bulb Work?

Incandescent bulb light is produced from a filament through which an electric current flows. Lindsay said that with his light, he could “read a book from a distance of 1½ feet” It was an improvement on Davy’s light, which did not last as long, was not as bright and used platinum, an expensive material.

Today, our new generation does not know the history of inventions because they are not interested in these things but to invent something new they must read history, we are in the process to educate students.

The people were impressed with Lindsay’s light because it was not producing smell or smoke, does not explode and can be kept on a table.

Lindsay continued to give public lectures about his invention over a period of time but he received less attention so he reduced his efforts in the following years. He did not seek or establish a patent for his invention, and the modern light bulb as we know later developed by others, such as Joseph Swan and Thomas Edison.

Even though Thomas Edison got the patent, we consider Lindsay’s invention was important in the history of light, the one who produced the first prototypes of today’s the Incandescent light bulb.
