This is an article I found on the Whewell’s Ghost Carnival blog. It is a list of ten early inventions that eventually led to modern day technology. I found it interesting because some of the inventions and ideas listed are far beyond the time in which they were thought of. For example, we might think that Facetime or Skype were inventions that came along with the cell phone or computer. However, Bell Labs developed a Picturephone that debuted at the 1964 World’s Fair. It astonishes me to think about how much time and dedication it would take to create something like this.
