Wondering who are the richest inventors in the world? Ealuxe has the answer!

Let’s face it! We need inventors in our lives! They are visionaries, willing to take chances. And the most important thing is to never give up!

As Thomas Edison said ‘I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work.’ or ‘To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.’

Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and many other famous developers are some of the greatest inventors of our day.
This top 10 list consists of inventions that fall largely outside the realm of the digital age.

Without no further talking, let’s get straight to business!

10Thomas Edison – Net worth – $170 million

We begin our top list with Thomas Edison, whose full name was Thomas Alva Edison.

Born on February 11, 1847, the American inventor was best known as the inventor of the electric light bulb, as well as electrical power, the phonograph, battery for electric car and motion picture camera.

Truth be told, he didn’t truly invent the light bulb. The inventor, dubbed ‘The Wizard of Menlo Park’, developed an incandescent, electric light by improving on a 50-year-old idea.

At the time of his death, October 18, 1931, Thomas Edison had a net worth of $12 million, which is equal to a modern equivalent of $170 million after adjusting for inflation.
