Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor who developed many devices including the motion picture camera, the phonograph and the electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and because of that, he is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
