Robert Kearns – intermittent wiper blades.

Sir James Dyson – vacuum cleaners.

And while we are at it… a list of inventors who were first, but never really made much money:

Warren de la Rue – first lightbulb, didn’t last long enough. Edison succeeded roughly 60 years later!

Innocenzo Manzetti – Original inventor of the telephone (Italian).
Elisha Gray – second inventor of the telephone (American). He probably made lots of money off of other inventions.

Something to think about:
-Alexander Bell’s mother and wife were both deaf.
