Jerome Lemelson’s Inventions

The holder of over 600 patents, Jerome Lemelson is one of the most prolific American inventors of all time. Inspired by his childhood role model, Thomas Edison, he earned on average one patent a month for more than 40 years – without support from established research institutions or corporate research and development departments. Lemelson’s innovations, ranging from medical and industrial technologies to toys, are part of the fabric of everyday life in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Here are just a few of the technologies made possible by Jerome Lemelson’s inventions:

  • Automated warehouse systems
  • Industrial robots

  • Audio cassette players

  • Machine vision
  • Fax machines

  • Cordless phones

  • Camcorders

  • Bar code readers

  • Integrated circuits

  • Talking thermometers

  • Information storage systems
  • Illuminated highway markers

I am always looking for problems to solve. I cannot look at a new technology without asking: How it can it be improved?” – Jerome Lemelson
