  1. Actually the first true lightbulb was invented in 1800 by Humphry Davy, Edison however did modify it into the more common versions we use today. Also, Tesla invented the radio and alternating currents, which I would say eventually led to some fairly substantial thing.

  2. Edison refined the light bulb. He did not invent it.

  4. 3:23 i know her, i met her at a steampunk convention last year and she did a talk about corsetry

  5. Yoran Hier kijk jou ”watch” op 4:04!!!!!

  6. Really wierd how he said if tesla didnt exist we would be using steam, tesla didnt discover electricity, electricity was discovered in 600 bc, and was put to use before tesla, by michael faraday, which powered the light bulb by edison, tesla just invented ways of creating electricity and basically renewed it. So if tesla didnt exist, would it be different? Maybe. Would ppl use steam? Hell no
