    Too hard to say, because there are too many great ones. Edison was probably the most prolific.

    I think the greatest inventor is Thomas Alva Edison. He had invented more than 100 inventation. That's why he is known as greatest inventor.

    Nikola Tesla, who invented a telephone repeater, rotating magnetic field principle, polyphase alternating-current system, induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, tesla coil transformer, wireless communication, radio, fluorescent lights, earthquake generators, radio controled submarines, bladeless turbines, and he sent lightning to the other side of the earth.

    Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:

    God said, "Let Tesla be", and all was light.

    Galileo!!!

    All of those truths that he discovered and was ridiculed for...he was even thrown out of his church for his radical, forward-thinking.

    he invented the telescope, barometer, envisioned human flight long before the Wright Brothers (he even drew a prototype for a helicopter). Wow....
