It is difficult to decide which inventions changed the world the most and it’s practically impossible to come up with a list that marks 10 most important inventions in human history.
This one invention got the whole world moving.  Just have a look around and you’ll probably see how this little circular component has changed our lives. The earliest form of plastic was used by mesoamericans and was synthesized using egg and blood proteins. It would be just about right to say that Printing was the first of many communication mediums that were to follow. It was just three centuries ago that the infamous plague broke out and claimed almost half the Europe. With the isolation of Radium in its metallic state by Marie Curie and Andre-Louis Debierne the pursuit of nuclear energy was started. The building blocks of circuitry transistors rule the advent of computers, cellular phone and all other electronics that we use. Electricity was a discovery but harnessing it was an invention that changed the human lives for good.  William Gilbert is known as the first electrical engineer who designed the versorium. It would actually be difficult to say as to when the first computer was made but Charles Babbage was the first one to conceptualize it. Put a hand to your heart and ask yourself can you imagine a world without internet or 21st century without the internet.
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?

Ten Inventions from the Middle Ages that have had lasting importance, even to the present-day.
Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Want to start a great discussion—or full blown argument—next time things are feeling a little slow in camp? Even coming into more recent history, say the last 100 to 150 years, there are still too many options to really pinpoint the best.
Imperfect sighting devices in some shape or form have been around since the middle of the 19th century, employing various types of magnifying glass and diopters. The impact rifle scopes have had on hunting in just a little more than a century is obvious as they allow shooters to see better, both in bright light and low light, and allows them to obtain a better aim.
Until Holless Wilbur Allen patented his “archery bow with draw-force multiplying attachments,” more commonly referred to as the compound bow, archers had little choice but to shoot recurves.
In looking to discover a way to get more power from a recurve, Allen sawed the limbs of one that he had and attached pulleys to the new ends. Like many new inventions that alter the norm in a sport or activity, many traditional bowmen resisted the idea of such a bow. Ok, so the first recorded use of a firearm of any sort pops up around 1364 and for nearly the next 500 years, dudes hunt animals, wage war and conquer the planet using ever slightly improved variants of long and short guns that for the most part require loading powder and projectile separately and that work in conjunction with yet any number of devices created to ignite the powder.
Even with the creation of the Spencer and the multi-shot opportunities it afforded a soldier on the field of battle, the Union Army largely stuck with the single-shot .58 Springfield front-loading musket out of concern that soldiers would fire the repeating arms too much in battle and tax an already strained supply system.
As in most technological races driven by war, Spencer wasn’t the only person working to perfect a repeating rifle. The 1970s were an amazing age in the world of hunting, and with so many innovations coming into existence at the time, the period can really be viewed as the birth of modern hunting. In the years that immediately followed, Bill Jordan would create his Realtree pattern and Toxey Haas would come out with Mossy Oak.
Few deer, turkey or duck hunters today would even dream of walking into the woods without their camouflage on.
Until the Baker Manufacturing Company of Valdosta, Ga., patented their Baker Tree Stand in 1969, most deer hunters simply hunted from the ground.
What the Baker Stand, as it is simply called by many who remember them, did was open up a brand new and highly successful tactic for deer hunters—it gave them an easy way to climb above the whitetail’s normal line of sight at a moment’s notice, allowing them to take advantage of the discovery of a well used trail, a rub line or a newly used food source.
Coming at the same time as the advent of the compound bow and ultimately, the explosive interest of bow hunting, Baker’s invention spawned an entire industry by the 1980s that was characterized by innovation. Yep, and one that I wanted to really add had it been a Top 6 list would have had to be the trail camera. This may be in other post, I think you are missing the biggest of all, and you are doing it right now. I don't think the repeating rifle had as much impact directly on hunting, but more on the firearms industry altogether.
I had a TSS stand do the same … That's when I learned what TSS REALLY stood for!
While I enjoy much modern technology, I think that modern hunters rely too heavily on technology instead of developing the skills necessary to actually hunt.
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.
With the sophistication of technology and newly devised tools at our disposal it is more of a journey that knows no end limits.
From the bearings of a clock to the steering wheel of your car and the tyres of automobiles, it is everywhere. The modern plastic however was ushered in 1856 and the form was called Parkensine and patented by Alexander Parkes. Upon its invention it completely changed the way information was earlier stored and promoted.  It also weaved the groundwork for the Renaissance and the Scientific Revolution. In the 21st century this kind of pandemic is completely unthinkable with the new level of medicinal achievements realized.  Penicillin was the first anti-biotic and the first to not only counter a disease but even prevent it and kill the infections that produced it in the first place. Harnessing this highly radioactive material seemed impossible but it didn’t stop nuclear physicists from dreaming of “atomic energy”. It was the building block of processor and had it not been this single invention we’d know nothing about world-wide we and would instead be looking at computers as some futuristic concept.  In 1947 transistor was invented in Bell Labs and no one could fathom how this semi-conductor device used to amplify and switch electromagnetic signals along with electric power will come to change the way we listen to music or shop online. Ever since 9th century aviation was alluring ask Abbas Ibn Firnas and Eilmer of Malmesbury both injured themselves in this pursuit or Leonardo da Vinci who researched bird’s wing and gave the idea of a man-powered aircraft in Codex on the Flight of Birds.
Robert Boyle, Stephen Gray and Benjamin Franklin’s extensive research on this subject sparked the hope for a potential way to harness it. Many of you might have thought it to be an American inventions but it actually has Russian origin. Just toss out the question: “What are the greatest inventions that changed hunting?” You’ll get plenty of answers, and, when you think about it, there are a lot of great candidates. According to several sources, the first known telescopic sight for firearms was the Chapman-James telescopic sight, though issues with sealing the lenses inside the body of the scope were faulty allowing outside air in, which quite frequently caused fogging inside the optic. The fact is, without scopes, most of us would never be able to shoot much beyond 100 to 150 yards with simple iron sights. Unfortunately, except for the most dedicated sportsmen such as the legendary Fred Bear, these recurves made relatively poor tools to hunt with as they had limited range, took a lot of practice to master and were hard to draw and hold back. As he experimented with different pulleys and ways to attach them, he discovered that by using one with an offset axle, he could pull back much more weight than the recurve or a straight pulley system allowed.
Tom Jennings (pictured above), a famous archer and magazine editor at the time was the first to champion and eventually build at his own company, the “Allen” bow as it was called, and used his pull to get competition rules relaxed to allow the new bow.

Then, in the late 1860, just a year after the first full rimfire cartridge was produced and as the country was descending into full scale civil war, a machinist who worked for Sharps in Hartford, Conn., patented the first true practical repeating rifle. However, with Yanks getting killed at a rate of four of their soldiers for every sharpshooting Reb and the war grinding on much longer than anyone expected, President Lincoln approval of the Spencer after shooting one in 1863, led to the purchase of more than 100,000 of the rifles.
The same year Spencer patented his rifle, Benjamin Tyler Henry patented the Henry repeating rifle, (pictured above) a .44 cal.
Indeed, another creation from that era that has touched virtually every aspect of our sport was the invention of dedicated hunting camo.
The latter two companies proved much more aggressive and successful in their marketing and eventually, Mossy Oak would buy Trebark.
It’s not that hunters can’t kill game without wearing Mossy Oak, Realtree or Trebark, (indeed, plenty of hunters did just that before it came along) it’s just that most of us feel like we won’t.
Or if they were determined enough to gain the advantage of height, were limited to fixed stands of relatively short height and often hammered together using 2x4s.
Safer, more comfortable and quieter climbing designs, along with spin-off creations such as the hanging stand, climbing sticks, and a more reliable manufactured ladder stand concept have probably led to the successful punch of as many game tags as bows and guns themselves in that time span. I realized after sliding 15 feet down one that they were not good for climbing telephone poles as they would not grip the smooth hard surface that well.
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. But some of these inventions have affected us more than the others and it won’t be wrong to label them as the cornerstone of human inventions. It wouldn’t probably be wrong to say that if it weren’t for the wheel the world wouldn’t simply exist as we know it.  Wheel not only allowed the hauling of building materials to the construction side it even made long-distance journeys possible. Although woodblock printing was prevalent as early as 220 A.D but it was Johannes Gutenberg’s Printing Press in 1436 that made all the difference.
It pioneered the development of anti-biotic thereon and if it weren’t for penicillin people would still be dying of minor infections turning bad and we’d still be struggling to find a cure. In 1930s the tables had turned.  James Chadwick discovered the neutron and its electric charge was to be the tool for further nuclear experimentation. Thus the transistor should probably be deemed as the most important invention of the 20th century. It was only in 1903 that the wright brothers managed what was termed as the first sustained and controlled power flight. And in 1800 Alessandro Volta’s voltaic pile or the first battery and faraday’s electric motor in 1821 brought the world one step closer to using this energy.
In 1958 after the launch of Sputnik Russia funded ARPA or the Advanced Research Project Agency. If you want to go the full spectrum of man’s existence, then certainly discoveries such as arrowheads, fire, gunpowder, invention of the gun or even the atlatl (yeah, I saw that one on a message board and have to agree, you can make an argument for it) are all worthy of being declared the greatest things to set our great hunting tradition rolling ever forward. There were some crude scopes in use during the Civil War, but it wasn’t until 1880 that August Fiedler, a forestry commissioner in Austria developed the first practical rifle scope. In effect, Allen had discovered “let-off,” which allows us to draw and hold bows that would otherwise be too heavy or hard to manage.
From there it was game on and as competitors, followed by hunters took interest in the bow, an entire market was born. It was in the late 1970s that Virginian Jim Crumley (pictured above), an avid bowhunter and turkey hunter, realized most of his hunting time was spent sitting against gray-barked trees.
Indeed today, Realtree and Mossy Oak are two of the biggest companies in the outdoor industry with their patterns appearing on—and commanding premium royalties for—nearly every type of product manufactured for sportsmen.
Throughout most of the 70s, it was the only option for mobile hunters looking to strike a lofty perch.
Better awareness of safety has also led to the creation of better harnesses and safety vests such as the Hunter Safety System or Seat-O-The-Pants model, and more importantly, most hunters are using them. There's certainly a lot of redesigning and experimenting when it comes to inventions, but it takes a lot longer than you think.
While some have had negative impacts on our lives the other has paved the way for many new discoveries. Even before it was incorporated in travelling in Chalcolithic age (4500–3300 BC) it was used in Ceramic Neolithic age as a disk with a hole for the axle which was used for farming.
The first official Plastic however was Bakelite made by Leo Hendrik Baekeland using phenol and formaldehyde. It made information available to general public and it was the enlightenment of the masses which evolved the world into what we know it as.
In 1930 Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann conducted first ever experiments and right on the cusp of Second World War governments world-wide started pumping millions into nuclear fission research.
In 1830 it was used in telegraph and during the decades that followed electrical engineering became a subject of its own. But there’s no denying the following five inventions had an amazing impact on the way the majority of us hunt and even live today. Kahles, which has been in business since 1898 and is the longest continuing optic manufacturer in existence today, took the idea and ran with it just as much of Europe and the rest of the world were about to run smack into a pair of World Wars. From the creation of these lever-action guns flowed all manner of future firearm developments, which today, serve sportsmen well with everything from tack-driving bolt guns, easy-cycling semi-autos, and the latest big step in our sport shooting evolution, the widespread availability of accurate, durable and super versatile AR-style rifles.
To better blend in with the hardwoods, he initially applied brown splotches on gray work clothes. Camo is no longer just for hunting clothing and is found on everything from firearms to furniture. 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. According to an estimate almost 60 trillion pages are printed annually and colossally we owe it to the printing press.
Nuclear technology gave us a powerful source of energy but it also resulted in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
It changed the face of both world wars and the first jet airliner de Havilland Comet and the Boeing 707, the first successful commercial jet, went onto to transform the way people travelled.
In 1882 the first ever power network was switched on by Edison which provided 110 V to 59 customers on Manhattan Island. Although the term personal computer was already in use and Xerox Parc’s alto was characterized as one in 1972 but due to IBM PC’s commercial success in the year 1981, the term PC came to be associated to a microcomputer compatible with IBM PC products. And it was through this data packet sharing network that the tide of internet was embarked upon.
Over a couple of years, he improved the look by drawing a bark design with a magic marker on those same gray outfits.
Every single one was built on previous inventions created by other inventors years, decades or even centuries before. After consulting many such lists I have devised this one and it was difficult to have left out some other important inventions like television, camera , telephone Laser, Radio, Clock and  phonograph. The following synthesized polymers proved to be a commercial success as it was cheap and durable.  Although its durability has now made it a nuisance and the original benevolence of this invention has somewhat diminished. In 1976 the first email service provider was established (Comet) but it wasn’t until 1993 that the World Wide Web came online. As more hunters saw his design and wanted one for themselves, Crumley decided to begin commercially producing the suits and in 1980, and Trebark Camouflage was born. 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.

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.
It probably developed independently in a number of regions, and there is evidence of its use in prehistoric eras.
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.
