Right from the very beginning when all lives first appeared on earth,
mankind have since then been scouting for ways in which the world would
become a better place and be able to foster standard living. From the
very first moment when someone bashed a rock on the ground to make the
very first sharp-edge tool, quite a lot of things have been invented all
of which are particularly revolutionary -making our survival on earth
stress free and meaningful.
Below are our best pick of thing that have actually come to change our world.
is almost as important as life itself. The invention of the wheel is
one of the most life changing invention that ever surfaced our world.
Although most of us may not really appreciate this invention unless we
were present around 4000 B.C. Before the invention of the wheel in 3500
B.C., humans were severely limited in how much stuff they could
transport over land, and how far they could transport them. But this
invention became the first touch stone of efficient transportation and
the model upon which other notable inventions were made such as the
clock, vehicles and turbines.
the invention of the compass, it was quite difficult for mariners to
travel. They only relied on the sun and stars to orient themselves.
Sunrise and sunset were the two major factors they depended on to tell
them how close and how far they where from the equator and of which most
of the time the accuracy is quite questionable. Traveling by sea during
that period was surrounded with lots of limitation until the invention
of the compass.
The printing press
there is any invention that has the greatest influence on the spread of
Christianity, the printing press machine should be it. If not for this
invention, maybe today only the pastors and our rich folks would have
access to the Holy Bible and other notable information. Before the
invention of the printing press, documented information were all
handwritten. The printing press permitted wider access to lots of
information including the
Bible. It was the major tool Martin Luther used to spark the Protestant
The internal combustion engine
The invention of the internal combustion engine is undoubtedly a revolutionary one. If not for it, the production of vehicles, aircraft, and ships would still be a farfetched dream. Maybe by now we will still be ridding on horses and chariots as the major facilities of transportation.
The internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat
engine where the combustion of a fuel takes place in a machine. It helps
converts chemical energy in fuel into mechanical energy of the machine,
thereby bring about movement. The first commercially successful
internal combustion engine was created by Étienne Lenoir around 1859 and
the first modern internal combustion engine was created in 1876 by
If anyone had told "Alexander the Great" that someone in Egypt could communicate with someone in Macedonia, he would have ordered one of his guards to have the person's head on a spike because he would think that's witchcraft. Communication is a very important aspect of being a living thing. There is actually no living thing who don't communicate, from sessile organism (plants) down to the fastest organism (The peregrine falcon), all living things communicate in one way or the other.
The invention of telephone actually came to change our world of communication, all thanks to Graham Bell who laid the foundation.
