Call this my tribute post to Thomas Edison and his light bulb. From distorted bulbs to duo-socket ones, it suddenly seems that designers and creators everywhere can have so much fun fiddling around with the greatest invention ever. Frankly, I doubt Edison himself expected these. And I'm not sure if he'll be really happy about this.

But one thing's for sure: I'm looking forward to what other reincarnations our little light bulb will undergo in the near future. What say you?

I thought the exploded one looks really cool! Light bulb within a bulb.

Amazing! My favorite has to be the "melting" one and the clear kerosene lamps

Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb. Your post should read. "Call this my tribute post to Nicola Tesla and his light bulb.

Actually, Edison did not invent the light bulb. He bought the patent in 1875 from the light bulb inventors, Henry Woodward and Matthew Evans of Toronto. That said, Edison was a very good marketer of the product. I enjoyed the lovely, artistic interpretations of the light bulb here.
