Description

Story Summary

The Idea Box was the first product Rosie created. We’re all about ideas and making them real.

The simple lightbulb is not so simple. It has over 200 years of trial and error by seven people. Thomas Edison was the seventh and it took him over a thousand experiments and designs to find a long-lasting electric lightbulb. The filament bulb is patent 223898 granted on January 27, 1880.

The invention of the lightbulb unleashed the modern era of electrification and progress. Hats off to you Mr. Edison.

Ideas do happen at the click of a switch. The glowing filaments always inspire. There are still infinite ideas and inventions waiting to be found in the ether. Let’s get going.
