Major Inventions

In awe of major inventions. There is something fascinating in looking at inventors and inventions. Whether they are modern inventions or ancient inventions, inventions have changed the direction of eastern and western culture. We will examine examples of all, whether they were patented or not.

All through history there have been brilliant thinkers who look around them and see problems. Problems to be solved. And unlike most of us who think "someone should fix this!", these inventors did the hard work of coming up with solutions. See my discussion of the problem-solution approach here.

Long before there was a US Patent Office, there were inventors and inventions. We will examine some of the interesting modern inventions, but also the intriguing ideas of ancient inventions that changed the world.
