5. Printing press

1. Light Bulb:

Think of a world with no electricity, No electrical machines working, no transport, and no mining when it might seem impossible to imagine. The Invention of the Light Bulb is one of today’s most Famous Inventions.

They were invented by Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) by building on experiments by Benjamin Franklin and others.

Michael Faraday coaxed an electric current using magnets and copper wire coils.

The success of Edison’s lightbulb was followed by the founding of the Edison Electric Illuminating Company of New York in 1880.

Remarkably, making electricity accessible to the masses of people.

Undoubtedly, The invention of the Light Bulb brought global importance on productivity day and night. But It also contributed to the expansion of the Transport system.

They eliminated heat and pollution caused by gas lighting, improved working conditions, and reduced fire hazards.

Surprisingly, Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are now considered the future of lighting due to lower energy consumption to run, an affordable monthly electricity bill, and longer life than traditional incandescent lightbulbs!


2. Wheel:

It all started with the struggle of transport from one place to another.

As a result, connecting the parts with cylindrical objects which could move in circular motion helped in the invention of the wheel.

The smooth texture of the wheels was an essential and challenging factor in the invention of wheels.

Gradually, the wheel bought outstanding cultivation of agriculture and enabled the transport of goods from the cultivation site to the markets.

It also contributed to crafting industries (for example, the centrifugal force of the wheel is the basic mechanism in windmills).

Stunningly, the invention of the telephone bought global connectivity with the means of communication and thought process exchange.

Phones reduce travel time and cost, and it is also possible to conduct business without being in the same room.

On August 2 1922, Graham Bell was died, so to honor him, all the telephone services in the United States and Canada were stopped for 1 minute.

It helps to transfer from movable type to paper in a mechanized manner.

Formerly, religious monks used to write texts manually, but with the Printing press, their work became hassle-free.

Now they use the printing press as a faster means of disseminating their knowledge far away.

The printing press contributed to literacy greatly expanding globally.

Up to 20 million volumes had been printed in Western Europe by the end of 1500.  Although Eisenstein estimated that it was around a million.

Notably, the printing press helped in finding lost Authors. Venice – based Aldus Manutius published a work by the Greek philosopher Aristotle in 1495.
