INVENTIONS: THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

As we are humans and we always want something new, something unique, something bigger, and most importantly something different…..our history is full of great people and great inventions…..there were some inventions after them, the world has took a new dimension or we can say that the world get updated by time by time……there are some inventions which have changed the way of thinking of human beings, and provide a new face to the world……these inventions are as follows:


WHEEL- just imagine if there were the invention of wheel didn’t take place then how our life will be going on….This primitive technology made it easier for all of us to travel. From the archaeological 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. Wheel played a vital role in our life.


COMPASS- It was created for spiritual and navigational purposes; the earliest compasses were most likely invented by the Chinese in around 1050 BC. It was made of lodestones, which is a naturally magnetized iron ore.The invention of the electromagnet in 1825 led to the development of the modern compass.


STEAM ENGINE- In 1781, James Watt introduced a steam engine and went on to fuel one of the most momentous technological leaps in human history during the Industrial Revolution.
During the 1800s these engines lead to an improvement in transportation, agriculture, and manufacturing industries.


AIRPLANE- On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright achieved the first powered, sustained and controlled airplane.
Beginning with gliders, the duo laid the foundation for modern aeronautical engineering.
The possibility to fly over thousands of miles in less time would not have been made possible if the aircraft were not invented.


FIRE- From the past to the present Fire has been in rituals, agriculture, cooking, generating heat and light, signaling, various industrial processes, cremation, and as a weapon or medium of destruction. This remarkable control of fire happened during Early Stone Age by Homo erectus. The invention of fire was the biggest achievement of our ancestors and an essential thing of all the time.


LIGHT BULB- Today we get light by only switching on a button….the light bulb was just like a revolution in the history of world…Thomas Alva Edison invented the light bulb.


ELECTRICITY- There is a very big invention apart from light bulb….the electricity….without electricity we feel very incomplete now a days…Alessandro Volta discovered the first practical method of generating electricity. 1831 is marked the year of major breakthrough for electricity. A British scientist Michael Faraday discovered the basic principles of electricity generation. This invention was also the revolution in the history of world. It works as a backbone for almost every work..


X-RAY- X-ray was the very big invention for the medical field as it brought an ease in treating people.
All credits to physicist Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen. While testing whether cathode rays could pass through glass, he noticed a glow coming from a nearby chemically coated screen. Because of their unknown nature, he named it as X-rays. Through his observation, he learned that X-rays can be photographed when they penetrate into human flesh.

In 1897, during the Balkan war, X-rays were first used to find bullets and broken bones inside patients. In 1901, he received the Nobel Prize in physics for his work.


CAMERA- Camera was one of the remarkable inventions in the history as it allows us to capture all the moments and with the help of this, we can travel in the memories of flash back.
The first partially successful photograph of a camera image was made in approximately 1816 by Nicephore Niepce, using a very small camera of his own making and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride, which darkened where it was exposed to light.


COMPUTER- In today’s life laptop, computer become an essential thing either it is business man, student, employee everyone need it. It was also the biggest achievement for history. Major Shoutout to the mechanical engineer Charles Babbage for laying the foundation to this remarkable and most reliable invention. In the early 19th century, the “father of the computer” conceptualized and invented the first mechanical computer.


TELEPHONE- Alexander Graham Bell, best known for his invention of the telephone. Today we can talk to any one from anywhere…and we feel connected to our every loved ones because of telephone.


INTERNET- Internet was also the remarkable invention as everyone needs it in today’s time either it is a school going child, an employee, or elder ones. Since the mid-1990s, the Internet has had a revolutionary impact on technology, including the rise of electronic mail, instant messaging, voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone calls, and two-way interactive video calls.


WORLD WIDE WEB- The Internet is a networking infrastructure. Whereas the World Wide Web is a way to access information over the medium of the Internet.
The father of the World Wide Web is a British Computer Scientist, Tim Berners-Lee. By October 1990, three Tim laid the foundation to the web through HTML, URL, and HTTP technologies.
April 1993, marked an important step in the history of Web. The decision to use the web for free was announced. And today we can see there is not a single day gone when we don’t search something on Google. We can say Google has become the part of our life…if we don’t know something and if we want to search something, then we easily open Google and collect the information….from a street to the world every information is available here.
