If you think that the world's greatest inventions came from the fevered minds of solitary geniuses, think again. SHOW CAPTION +When you imagine inventors, you probably picture a lone genius in a laboratory concocting brilliant devices, experimenting and redesigning until some concept or contraption works perfectly. It is in the nature of human beings to work for better living standards and it is part of evolution to evolve.
Perhaps one of the most amazing inventions ever, almost every person is familiar with this device particularly the fact that it is used not only by mathematicians but is put into practice by almost everyone. Though the credit for this invention goes to ancient Romans, but his practice wasn’t very popular until the 20th century. It is objects like this which really make you wonder what we would do and more importantly where would we be if this invention hadn’t been done. Perhaps the best invention of ancient civilizations, language is the definition of humanity.
Though methods to avoid pregnancy have been employed for thousands of years, yet, the most safest and reliable methods have been available for about a century. The most important invention regarding foods, the first commercial microwave oven was sold in 1974. The main reason for the prolonged life of humans, Antibiotics have revolutionized life as we know it.
Let’s go back in time and have a look at the cassette walkman, a single cassette could barely have 12 to 15 songs in it.
First introduced in 1927, refrigerators are without a doubt the greatest kitchen invention ever made. GPS or more commonly referred to as the Global Positioning System first came into existence in 1978. To an ordinary person a bar code is nothing but a few strips of boring black and white lines, but , if you ask its importance to a person keeping some sort of inventory record like the manager or owner of a store, a bar code is of utmost importance. The Radio is an important part of our lives, whether it be listening to news or just driving around town in your car listening to music.
Every picture has its own perception; some people find guns to be an amazing invention while others consider it to be the work of Satan.
Automated Teller Machine or more commonly referred to as ATM, this invention is amongst the most important inventions ever made. Some men are born great while others have greatness trust upon them, same can be said for Alexander Graham. The Television of more commonly referred to as the TV, our lives have greatly been evolved by his invention. They say seeing is believing, seeing a mobile phone in the hand of every human being who has any sense of himself is becoming more and more common.
Overshadowed by electrical and internal combustion engines, the Steam engine is perhaps the most unappreciated invention used today. A name which everyone has heard is that of the Wright Brothers, who in 1902 developed the first form of an aircraft which was a three-axis control system. Before the invention of Email, a person would send a document and wait for days for the person to receive it. Thought Thomas Edison gets most of the credit for the invention of the light bulb, this invention was the collective work of Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan.
Probably the single most important invention in human history, without electricity humans have nothing. With a passion for Knowledge, Smashinghub has been created to explore things like Free Resources For Designers, Photographers, Web Developers and Inspiration. Edison invented Light Bulb, Nikola is best known for developing the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.
There were DOZENS of mp3 players before the iPod, did better job too and were cheaper, but they never had the fanatics that Apple has buying everything that it ships no matter how over-hyped and outrageously over-priced they are.
The drink that laces the parties and celebrations, is actually an accidental discovery of the 17th century. One of the greatest inventions of all time in the medical history, is perhaps the pacemaker. In the 1930s, chlorofluorocarbon or CFCs were emphasized upon in the refrigeration industry.
Edouard Benedictus, a multi-talented Frenchman, who was a painter, composer, writer, and a chemist, accidentally knocked off a flask of a shelf and thought it would have broken into pieces. Be that as it may, it sometimes happens that our ingenuity when it comes to making our lives easier backfires and we create gadgets and gizmos that don't live up to expectations. Gadgets and gizmos like these bizarre contraptions that, although meant to help consumers' busy lives get easier, instead only managed to make a lot of people laugh. Ever heard of the slippers that help mop the floor with minimum effort, or the mug that stirs your coffee for you?
If you want to have a little reading session but can't be bothered to turn the pages of the book, the automatic book reading chair will do the trick for you. If putting your socks on takes too much effort, the sock buddy is a metal device that will help you with this ordeal. As you scan this list of the 10 inventions that changed the world, note how many of them perfected workable designs. At that point, the new invention is unveiled to the world, a stunning piece of new technology that instantly changes everything.Well, you've got part of it right. Mankind has worked tirelessly for the cause of having a better life for themselves and enjoy a luxurious lifestyle. The first calculator was created in the Late 1960s and the pocket version became available in 1970.In today’s modern world it is impossible to find a mobile without a calculator application in it. In the past people would have to go to public toilets and take buckets of water with them but, in today’s modern world, we have this system of plumbing which keeps our house from smelling like poop.Having a house which doesn’t smell like a mini-sewer is definitely a progress to a better lifestyle then in the past.
The modern man has so many benefits and one of the reason for these benefits is tools, imagine how we would build thingsor nail things together, cut trees and even build anything had tools not been invented. Widely used for reheating cold food and even sometimes frozen food, microwave ovens have really become an important part of our life,whether it be melting chocolate or reheating a dinner, we always turn towards microwave ovens.
In the 1870s when science was growing, it turned its attention to find some protection against different microorganisms causing viruses and diseases.Due to Antibiotics we have removed the fear of dying from minor injuries and are living a much more happy life knowing that we won’t go down easily.
Before its invention ice houses were used to have cool storage for food for almost the entire year, a house without a refrigerator is like a train without an engine,just imagine how life would be if we don’t have means to store our ice cream and other foods. Using 32 satellites to help it in its operation, the GPS points to your location with incredible accuracy.In the start it was a popular device for the travelers but with the development of this technology and wit time, GPS is everywhere, it’s found in not only mobile phones but also in cars. It was originated to serve as a medium of providing fuel to the increasing number of buyers, but, today they are everywhere.Whether it be shopping, Gas pumps or even online buying, Credit Cards are everywhere as they allow short term loans o be given quickly to the users. Using these black and white stripes we can easily recognize the price of the item and in addition to that it also helps to keep a track of our inventory.Boring or not, Bar Codes have changed the way we shop. The first Radio was invented in 1901, when the Italian Guglielmo Macroni sent the first radio transaction. The device was originally invented in 1454 by a German Goldsmith by the name of Gutenberg, it consisted of a moveable metal which using ink, could print repeatedly on paper.
Good or bad, we cannot deny the fact that guns have revolutionized the world in which we live, now everyone doesn’t have to learn to fight with swords to protect themselves, true that a person needs to train with guns as well but it’s much easier then the sword fighting.The first gun was fired in the 13th century and since then, it has all been uphill as far as the development of guns is concerned.
The first telephone, invented by Alexander Graham, was invented in the 1870s and since then this technology has evolved into a major network.
Though Canon is widely recognized as the creators of the best cameras in the world, it is a shock knowing that the credit to this invention goes to Kodak and not Canon.

The ability to watch both recorded as well as live shows and games, TV’s are the most commonly and most popular means of home entertainment.
Let’s consider building a Pyramid without machines, it would take years and thousands and thousands of men to complete it. An interesting fact is that here are 600 million passenger cars used in the world right now. In the 1960s American defense used a service called ARPANET as a means of the internet and later joined hands with the National Science Foundation to evolve internet. Whether it be landing on the moon or just every day to day business transactions, nothing is possible without computers. Regarding your question, IPod changed the lifestyle hopefully, you agreed with us, and read the title as well.
Have you incidentally stumbled upon this page in search of accidental inventions that changed the world? They helped some people become really rich and famous as they bank upon their bloopers and blunders. Sir Alexander Fleming was working on a strain of bacteria called Staphylococcus, and left one of the culture plates in a sterile environment, that got contaminated with fungus. Unaware of the effects of these CFCs on our ozone layer, scientists worked on it endlessly. It is said that one fine day in 1853, a customer (many identify him as Cornelius Vanderbilt), went to a restaurant in Saratoga, New York for dinner.
There's certainly a lot of redesigning and experimenting when it comes to inventions, but it takes a lot longer than you think.
How do u learn anything at all, our ability to communicate and understand whether it be speaking,writing or reading, language is the sole reason for it. In addition to tat, women don’t have to get tied up in homes with kids, they can reach out to levels not possible before and perhaps that is the reason that in this competitive world,women are giving men a run for their money. But, that was that and this is now, this magnificent white device which revolutionized the music industry and has the capacity to store up to 30,000 songs in it.No doubt, IPods have made our lives very easy as far as music is concerned.
The technology was the most important means of communication in the old days particularly during the World War era.Had radio not been invented, then, life as we know it wouldn’t even exist. Imagine a life without a printer, no newspaper, no hard copies, no paper and not even the ability to bring out photos from camera reel.No doubt, our lives have been greatly enhanced by this invention. Whether you like to stay fit or just love having fun, gaming consoles are for everyone, if you want to stay fit you can play the Nintendo Wii or if your into violence you can play first person shooters.A world without gaming is a world in which I do not desire to live and Gaming consoles take gaming to the next level.
If you run out money and you have limited time to spend, then, instead of waiting for your turn in a bank, simply go to an ATM machine and draw out money.Life without ATM’s truly would be difficult. With over 1.3 billion phone lines currently in use throughout the world,the Modern telephone network is the backbone of all sorts of communication being done today. With the rapid development since 1970s, and the availability of video cassettes, DVD’s and now Blu-ray’s, the uses of TV have greatly been enhancedand life without TV is virtually impossible. We can add to it the fact that people also travel by means of public transport such as trains, but, our result of 600 million indicates that there is roughly one car per 11 people.Just think about how life would be without automobiles.
But, this ability to fly and touch the sky could not have been made possible had it not been for the Wright Brothers and had aircrafts not been invented,we would still be sailing the oceans to reach our destination. A person sitting in one part of the world can communicate with someone in any other part of the world in the time of a few seconds.With the development and adaption of this technology, life has become very easy and comfortable. Computers are now used in almost every phase of life and there is hardly any area where computer hasn’t benefited the humans.
So if you’re somewhere where there is light at night, then be thankful to Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan. Had it not been for Electricitywe wouldn’t even have a list of the top 30 inventions we would have a minor list of 3 or 5 inventions. Here are some interesting facts about things that we use in our daily lives that were the result of accidents. You will be surprised to know that most of these inventions that have become a part of our daily lives were created by chance! Instead, two years of constant work led to the formation of sparkling, white liquid, that we know today as 'champagne'. What was once known as "Popcorn and Hot Pockets Warmer," was actually an unintentional invention.
He observed that the bacteria refused to grow in the contaminated area, his findings were published and soon work began on it by other scientists. He sold his mailbags made of the acidulous rubber to the government only to be subjected to denial yet again as the rubber was defective. One such chemist, Roy Plunkett working on similar lines, came up with a theory that if he could react a compound TFE with hydrochloric acid, an improved coolant could be produced. After inquiring, he found out that the glass contained cellulose nitrate which acted as an adhesive.
It also takes far more people than that lone genius.As you'll see when you read about these 10 world-changing inventions, no invention is created in a vacuum.
These assistants are computerized machines, programmed to do specific tasks of work more efficiently than humans. Our life has been made extremely easy all thanks to the internet and the means of communication through social networking sites keeps usin continuous contact with our friends and helps us to meet people throughout the world. Bringing speed and more reliability with them, computers can do numerous mathematical calculations with incredible speed and pin point accuracy.Add to that the fact that new software’s and hardware’s are always making the computer better, life without a computer is like a rose without petals. Imagine a world where you have to light candles and burn cotton to have little light in your room, life truly would be miserable but fortunately for us we had Ediswan.The bulb itself works by transmitting electricity through a filament. Percy LeBaron Spencer, an engineer working on radar technology after WWII, had a weakness for chocolates that led him to stumble upon this remarkable idea. Benedictus came up with 'Triplex' within 24 hours, which was durable and used in production of gas masks for WWI. When several plates were returned, the chef George Crum sent out thin, fried slices of potatoes, who found them to be a tasty treat. Every single one was built on previous inventions created by other inventors years, decades or even centuries before. Without Digital Camera’s half the breakthroughs in science would not have been possible as there would have been no means to go into the depths of this world which are not visible to the human eye.This technology is the sole reason for most of today’s breakthroughs in science. The use of Drones, the various car productions methods and even the assembling and disassembling of machines is done efficiently due to robots.The humanoid Robots are widely being used today and who knows a time may come in future where Robots will do all the work and we will have all sorts of spare time to ourselves. While working with the magnetron in the lab, a bar of chocolate melted in his pocket which he proposed was due to the invisible rays and not body heat. Later realizing that his circuit pulsed for 1.8 milliseconds, he stopped for one second, and repeated the cycle, creating the perfect heartbeat. Later, when he opened the canisters, to his astonishment, he found flakes falling out of it, he forwarded these to other scientists at DuPont, an American chemical company and the rest is history. Every invention has problems, and it might not be until some other inventor comes along that they get solved.
It's a simple cutting tool used to carve a furrow into the soil, churning it up to expose nutrients and prepare it for planting.
However, one should note that the company 'Goodyear' was founded about 40 years after his death. This time he set to work on it realizing it could form an adhesive that did not require heat or pressure to develop a strong bond. Yet the plow is probably the one invention that made all others possible.No one knows who invented the plow, or exactly when it came to be.

With a bit of chemical change, "Alcohol-Catalyzed Cyanoacrylate Adhesive Composition" or super glue came into existence. It probably developed independently in a number of regions, and there is evidence of its use in prehistoric eras. However, the aristocratic French crowd enjoyed it and eventually it became a hit amongst the Englishmen too.
Their lives were devoted solely to finding enough food to survive from one season to the next.
Growing food added some stability to life, but doing it by hand was labor intensive and took a long time. Improvements in the plow's design made farming so efficient that people could harvest far more food than they needed to survive.
And if you could get food by trading, then you could devote your day-to-day existence to something other than growing food, such as producing the goods and services that were suddenly in demand.The ability to trade and store materials drove the invention of written language, number systems, fortifications and militaries.
However, if it had been used only for transportation, the wheel wouldn't have been as much of a world-changer as it was. In fact, a lack of quality roads limited its usefulness in this regard for thousands of years.A wheel can be used for a lot of things other than sticking them on a cart to carry grain, though.
Tens of thousands of other inventions require wheels to function, from water wheels that power mills to gears and cogs that allowed even ancient cultures to create complex machines.
The world already had paper and block printing -- the Chinese had them as early as the 11th century -- but the complexity of their language limited popularity. Marco Polo brought the idea to Europe in 1295.Gutenberg combined the idea of block printing with a screw press (used for olive oil and wine production). He also developed metal printing blocks that were far more durable and easier to make than the hand-carved wooden letters in use previously.
Finally, his advances in ink and paper production helped revolutionize the whole process of mass printing.The printing press allowed enormous quantities of information to be recorded and spread throughout the world.
Books had previously been items only the extremely rich could afford, but mass production brought the price down tremendously.
The printing press is probably responsible for many other inventions, but in a more subtle way than the wheel. It's difficult to pinpoint a single inventor of the refrigerator, because the concept was widely known and gradually improved over the course of about 200 years. Some credit Oliver Evans' 1805 unproduced design of a vapor-compression unit, while others point to Carl von Linde's 1876 design as the actual precursor of the modern refrigerator in your kitchen.
Dozens of inventors, including Albert Einstein, would refine or improve refrigerator designs over the decades.In the early 20th century, harvested natural ice was still common, but large industries such as breweries were beginning to use ice-making machines. However, it wasn't until the development of safer refrigerant chemicals in the 1920s that home refrigerators became the norm.The ability to keep food cold for prolonged periods (and even during shipping, once refrigerated trucks were developed) drastically changed the food production industry and the eating habits of people around the world. The telephone simply refined the idea by allowing actual voice communications to be sent over copper wires, instead of just beeps that spelled out the plain text in Morse code. These communication methods were point-to-point, and required an extensive infrastructure of wires to function.Transmitting signals wirelessly using electromagnetic waves was a concept worked on by many inventors around the world, but Guglielmo Marconi and Nikola Tesla popularized it in the early 20th century.
Eventually, sound could be transmitted wirelessly, while engineers gradually perfected the transmission of images. Radio and television were new landmarks in communications because they allowed a single broadcaster to send messages to thousands or even millions of recipients as long as they were equipped with receivers.These developments in communications technology effectively shrank the world. In the span of about 120 years, we went from a world where it might take weeks to hear news from across the country to one where we can watch events occurring on the other side of the globe as they happen.
Water wheels and draft animals provided the only 'industrial' power available, which clearly had its limits. The Industrial Revolution, which is perhaps the greatest change over the shortest period of time in the history of civilization, was carried forward by the steam engine.The concept of using steam to power machines had been around for thousands of years, but Thomas Newcomen's creation in 1712 was the first to harness that power for useful work (pumping water out of mines, for the most part). In 1769, James Watt modified a Newcomen engine by adding a separate condenser, which vastly increased the steam engine's power and made it a far more practical way to do work. He also developed a way for the engine to produce rotary motion, which may be just as important as the efficiency gains. Thus, Watt is often considered the inventor of the steam engine.Newcomen's and Watt's engines actually used the vacuum of condensing steam to drive the pistons, not the pressure of steam expansion. It was the high-pressure steam engine developed by Richard Trevithick and others that allowed for steam engines small enough to power a train. Not only did steam engines power factories that made the rapid production of goods possible, they powered the trains and steamships that carried those goods across the globe.While the steam engine has been eclipsed by electric and internal combustion engines in the areas of transport and factory power, they're still incredibly important. While ideas for personal vehicles had been around for years, Karl Benz's 1885 Motorwagen, powered by an internal combustion engine of his own design, is widely considered the first automobile.
Henry Ford's improvements in the production process -- and effective marketing -- brought the price and the desire for owning an auto into the reach of most Americans. Europe soon followed.The automobile's effect on commerce, society and culture is hard to overestimate.
Most of us can jump in our car and go wherever we want whenever we want, effectively expanding the size of any community to the distance we're willing to drive to shop or visit friends. Our cities are largely designed and built around automobile access, with paved roads and parking lots taking up huge amounts of space and a big chunk of our governments' budgets. Every invention is built by incrementally improving earlier designs, and the person usually associated with an invention is the first person to make it commercially viable.
We immediately think of Thomas Edison as the electric light bulb's inventor, but dozens of people were working on similar ideas in the 1870s, when Edison developed his incandescent bulb.
Joseph Swan did similar work in Britain at the time, and eventually the two merged their ideas into a single company, Ediswan.The bulb itself works by transmitting electricity through a wire with high resistance known as a filament. The glass bulb encases the filament in a vacuum or in inert gas, preventing combustion.You might think the light bulb changed the world by allowing people to work at night or in dark places (it did, to some extent), but we already had relatively cheap and efficient gas lamps and other light sources at the time. It was actually the infrastructure that was built to provide electricity to every home and business that changed the world.
There is no single inventor of the modern computer, although the ideas of British mathematician Alan Turing are considered eminently influential in the field of computing.
When they operate under the instructions of skilled programmers, computers can accomplish amazing feats. Some high-performance military aircraft wouldn't be able to fly without constant computerized adjustments to flight control surfaces. Computers performed the sequencing of the human genome, let us put spacecraft into orbit, control medical testing equipment, and create the complex visual imagery used in films and video games.If we only examine these grandiose uses of computers, we overlook how much we rely on them from day to day. Computers let us store vast amounts of information and retrieve a given piece of it almost instantly. Its effects on business, communication, economy, entertainment and even politics are profound.
This network of computer-to-computer connections was intended for military and academic research. This was, essentially, the birth of the Internet, but it took 10 or so years for various other networks in the world to adopt the new protocol, making the Internet truly global.The Internet is such a powerful invention that we've probably only begun to see the effects it will have on the world.
The ability to diffuse and recombine information with such efficiency could accelerate the rate at which further world-changing inventions are created. At the same time, some fear that our ability to communicate, work, play and do business via the Internet breaks down our ties to local communities and causes us to become socially isolated.
