Then And Now

Inventing In Ohio

Inventing is a complicated process, from conceptualizing, prototyping, financing, manufacturing, marketing, commercializing, selling. We have members that have experience and expertise in all phases. We’ve been there!

Many notable inventors and inventions were from Ohio, and Ohio continues to produce innovators with tremendous potential to better society. Inventors Network is here to help.

Edison's first Movie Machine, the Kinetoscope, was a 'Talkie'. In 1886 the clockwork turned one shaft causing the small pictures to seem to move when viewed through the magnifying glass. Simultaneously, the synchronized sounds can be heard through earphones.
