In this article we see some of the inventions that changes the world but before start one of my favourite quote stated by Thomas Elva Edison ——
he never failed. He succeeded every now and again with an invention that would change the world. The rest of the time, he tried thousands of other things with only one fault—that they would never work.
Here is a list of our top picks of revolutionary inventions that changed the world:
- Fire:- All thanks to our ancestors for leading us to the controlled use of fire which helps us from colourful lighting to delicious cooking. In addition, the biography of various landscapes was altered by fire.
- Wheel :- one of the most famous inventions that influenced numerous other things. This primitive technology made it easier for all of us to travel. From the archeological excavations, the oldest known wheel is from Mesopotamia, around 3500 B.C. As a result of advancement in the new and innovative design of wheels, industrialization could take root. The wheel serves a vital purpose in our lives, and we couldn’t imagine the world without them.
- Compass :- Created for navigational purpose and the earliest compasses were most likely invented by the Chinese in around 1050 BC.
- Paper Currency:– Today, most people take the existence of paper money for granted and few know how its use originated and developed throughout history. In Western countries such as the United States, paper money has a relatively short existence going back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but in China paper currency first began circulating over 1,000 years ago.
- The Printing Press:- No innovation did more for the spread and democratization of knowledge than Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press. Developed around 1440 in Mainz, Germany.
- Steel:- After the invention of the Bessemer Process, a technique for creating steel using molten pig iron, in the 1850s. Steel then exploded into one of the biggest Industrial Revolution on the planet and was used in the creation of everything from bridges and railroads to skyscrapers and engines.
- Magnifying Lenses:- An unremarkable invention, but their use has offered mankind a glimpse of everything from distant stars and galaxies to the minute workings of living cells. Lenses first came into use in the 13th century as an aid for the weak-sighted, and the first microscopes and telescopes followed in the late 16th and early 17th centuries.
- The Electric Bulb:- A device that produces light from electricity. In addition to lighting a dark space, they can be used to show an electronic device is on, to direct traffic, for heat, and many other purposes. Billions are in use, some even in outer space. Thanks to the efforts of inventors like Warren de la Rue, Joseph Wilson Swan and Thomas Alva Edison, because of their contributions I can write this article under their light 🙂 . It was Edison and Swan who patented the first long-lasting light bulbs in 1879 and 1880, liberating society from a near-total reliance on daylight (According to National Geographic)
- Clock:- When people reflect on how technology has changed our lives, they usually think about the car, the television, or the computer. But according to historian and philosopher Lewis Mumford, it’s really the invention of the mechanical clock that changed everything.
- Transistors :- An essential component in nearly every modern electronic gadget. First developed in late 1947 by Bell Laboratories, these tiny semiconductor devices allow for precise control of the amount and flow of current through circuit boards.
