Top5 Inventions
As we look at each invention, ask yourself the following question:
Does the invention
solve a problem?
#5. Penicillin
Penicillin was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928. Andrew Moyer patented the first method of industrial production of penicillin in 1948.
Penicillin antibiotics are historically significant because they are the first drugs that were effective against many previously serious diseases such as Staph infections.
#4.The Light Bulb
In 1878, Sir Joseph Wilson Swan, an English physicist, was the first person to invent a practical and longer-lasting electic lightbulb (13.5 hours) with a carbon fiber filament.
In 1879, Thomas Edison invented a carbon filament that burned for forty hours.
#3.The Sewing Machine
Sewing machines were invented during the first Industrial Revolution to decrease the amount of manual sewing work performed in clothing companies.
The first functional sewing machine was invented by the French tailor, Barthelemy Thimonnier, in 1830.
#2. The Television
Television is a widely used telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images usually accompanied by sound.
In 1885, Karl Benz designed and built the world's first practical automobile to be powered by an internal-combustion engine. In 1885, Gottlieb Daimler took the internal combustion engine a step further and patented what is generally recognized as the prototype of the modern gas engine and later built the world's first four-wheeled motor vehicle.
