Why Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla Clashed During the Battle of the Currents

Thomas Edison is widely known as one of history’s most consequential inventors, a legacy born of both his indisputable genius in the laboratory and noted ruthlessness as a businessman; the old adage is that history is written by the victors, and in Edison’s case, he spun his narrative in real-time. Sometimes, as in the case of inventions developed by contemporaries such as Nikola Tesla, that meant bending the truth a little bit.

This Is How Thomas Edison Tried To Speak With The Dead

Thomas Edison was arguably the most prolific inventor of the Industrial Revolution. According to Britannica, he held the world record at the time for patents, with 1,093. And among those were some truly life-changing inventions, such as the telegraph, the phonograph, alkaline batteries, movie cameras, and more (the light bulb? Not really). With such a long list of new ideas to his name, however, not all of them were going to be zingers. For example, Edison had a rather peculiar idea for how we'd use steel in the future. But solid steel houses were far from his wackiest whim. That title definitely goes to his idea for a "spirit phone," a contraption he hoped would enable people to speak with the dead.
