Transcript of Inventions That
Changed The World...
By Aryan Singh, Jeffrey Tran & Josh Hooke
The wheel is a really common topic for 'Best inventions of all time' but it actually took until 3500BC for someone to create them. It is unknown who made them but what we do know is that they truly, have shaped the world as we know it. They have contributed highly for cars and other types of transport to be created.
The nail is believed to have been invented in the Middle east about 5,000 years ago. Roughly 2985BC. Scientists have estimated that they were made around this time because of the looks and the materials they were constructed of. They have helped with the construction of many things such as: Buildings, houses, etc.
The Compass was invented in China during the Han Dynasty about 206BC. The Compass was used to aid in finding direction (North, south east and west.) The compass helps the world by: guiding people when they are lost, guiding ships to their destinations and just telling us where north, south, east and west are.
The Printing Press was invented by Johannes
Gutenberg in 1440. The method of printing not only revolutionized the production of books. Without it today, we wouldn't be able to print masses of books at once.
Internal Combustion Engines that we know today were first manufactured in the mid 1850's. It was invented by two men who's names were: Nikolaus Otto and Étienne Lenoir. They are the core power source for vehicles such as cars and planes which are really important in our everyday lives
The first ever computer that slightly resembles the ones we know today was first made between 1833 and 1871 by Charles Babbage. This computer was roughly 0.9M by 2.4M and weighed about 30t. All it did was calculate mathematical tables, but being programmed by hand made them very error prone.
Vint Cerf invented the internet in the United States during the late 1950s. Think about it, what does email, YouTube and Wikipedia need? The internet of course! The internet was created for a way to access things that you wouldn't be able to in any other way. Today it helps us by providing us with a whole world of information at our fingertips. Amazing right!?
Penicillin was discovered by an accident! In fact, about half of the most important inventions were discovered by accident. Like the microwave, corn-flakes and post-it notes too!
Did you know that the cigarette lighter was invented before the match.
Most lipsticks contain fish scales! HAHA bet you didn't know that!
The first words spoken on telephone were "Come here Watson, I want you." Stupid right!?
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING
The telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell on March 7th 1876. At the time, another person named Elisha Gray was competing against Bell to create the telephone first. Some people believe that Gray had the idea of making the telephone first while Bell stole the idea and took credit for it. But research tells us that a man named Antonio Meucci had submitted a form 4 years before Bell and Gray had submitted theirs though Meucci had no supporting drawings. Many people still argue that Meucci's form was just a tin can and some string!
The first lightbulb was actually invented by a man named Humphrey Davy but not cost effective with its platinum filament. Platinum nowadays is more expensive than diamonds! Thomas Edison was actually the one to make a cost effective lightbulb.
Alexander Fleming accidentally discovered penicillin back in 1928. Penicillin was used as an anti-biotic to fight against infections. A lot of us probably wouldn't be here today without the miracle discovery of penicillin because without it even an infected cut would be an issue!
