Follow as we explore the changing worlds of science and technology.
We got a new look for fashion week. Follow #iOnFashion during NYFW for original reporting on the intersection of science and fashion.
Happy birthday, Thomas Edison! To celebrate the 31st annual “Inventors’ Day” in the United States, we’re kicking off “22 Days Of Invention.” For the next 22 days, we’ll be celebrating some of the greatest minds in history, with stories of the inventions we use in our backyards to machines made for interstellar space.
Why 22 days? Edison received his first patent at age 22 for the “Electrographic Vote-Recorder,” so we thought the number was apropos for the occasion.
We’ll be taking a look at everything from Edison’s greatest hits, to the anniversary of the founding of Quirky, the design shop that makes crowdsourced inventions real.
Follow the hashtag #22DaysOfInvention on Twitter and Tumblr to learn more about the brains behind our favorite things. Happy inventing, everyone!
