  • TV remote was invented

    TV remote was invented
    Remote controls have array of buttons for adjusting various settings such as television channel, and volume. In fact, for the majority of modern devices, the remote contains all the function controls while the controlled device itself only has a handful of essential primary controls.
  • Microwave oven is invented

    Microwave oven is invented
    A microwave oven, or a microwave, is a kitchen appliance that cooks or heats food by dielectric heating. This is accomplished by using microwave radiation to heat water and other polarized molecules within the food.
  • The first cardiac pacemaker was created

    The  first cardiac pacemaker was created
    Pacemaker is a medical device which uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contacting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart. The primary purpose of a pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because the heart's pacemaker is not fast enough, or there is a block in the heart's arteries
  • The Boeing 707-120 was invented

    search boeing 7071958--JET AIRLINER
    The Boeing 707-120 is the world's first successful commercial jet airliner. The four-engine plane carries 181 passengers and cruises at 600 mph for up to 5280 miles on a full tank.
  • Black and Decker created the first cordless drill

    Black and Decker created the first cordless drill
    Black and Decker releases its first cordless drill, but designers can't coax more than 20 watts from its NiCd batteries. Instead, they strive for efficiency, modifying gear ratios and using better materials.
  • Communication Satellite was invented

    Communication Satellite was invented
    Telstar is launched as the first "active" communications satellite--active as in amplifying and retransmitting incoming signals, rather than passively bouncing them back to Earth.
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles were invented

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles were invented
    Widespread use of remotely piloted aircraft begins during the Vietnam War with deployment of 1000 AQM-34 Ryan Firebees. The first model of these 29-ft.-long planes was developed in just 90 days in 1962. AQM-34s go on to fly more than 34,000 surveillance missions. Their success leads to the eventual development of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles widely used today.
  • Smoke Detector was invented

    Smoke Detector was invented
    Randolph Smith and Kenneth House patent a battery-powered smoke detector for home use. Later models rely on perhaps the cheapest nuclear technology you can own: a chunk of americium-241. The element's radioactive particles generate a small electric current. If smoke enters the chamber it disrupts the current, triggering an alarm.
  • The internet was put in to use

    The internet was put in to use
    The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide
  • Digital music was created

    Digital music was created
    James Russell, a scientist with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, invents the first digital-to-optical recording and playback system, in which sounds are represented by a string of 0s and 1s and a laser reads the binary patterns etched on a photosensitive platter.
  • Electronic Ignition

    Electronic Ignition
    Chrysler paves the way for the era of electronic--rather than mechanical--advances in automobiles with the electronic ignition. It leads to electronic control of ignition timing and fuel metering, harbingers of more sophisticated systems to come. Today, these include electronic control transmission shift points, antilock brakes, traction control systems, steering and airbag deployment.
  • MRI was invented

    MRI was invented
    Check out this video, search MRI and go to multimediacheck out thsi video(MRI),The MRI is primarily a medical imaging technique most commonly used in radiology to visualize detailed internal structure and limited function of the body
  • The PC was created

    The PC was created
    PC is any general-purpose computer whose size, capabilities, and original sales price make it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end user, with no intervening computer operator. T
  • Atari 2600 was invented

    Atari 2600 was invented
    The first game system made that was controled b joysticks
  • GPS was created

    GPS was created
    The GPS is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use
  • The first Laptop was invented

    The first Laptop was invented
    A laptop is a personal computer designed for mobile use and small and light enough to sit on a person's lap while in use.[1] A laptop integrates most of the typical components of a desktop computer, including a display, a keyboard, a pointing device (a touchpad, also known as a trackpad, and/or a pointing stick), speakers, and often including a battery, into a single small and light unit.
  • The CD was invented

    The CD was invented
    CD is an optical disc used to store digital data. It was originally developed to store sound recordings exclusively, but later it also allowed the preservation of other types of data. Audio CDs have been commercially available since October 1982. In 2010, they remain the standard physical storage medium for audio.
  • DNA finger printing was invented

    DNA finger printing was invented
    DNA profiles are encrypted sets of numbers that reflect a person's DNA makeup, which can also be used as the person's identifier.
  • MP3 player was invented

    MP3 player was invented
    MP3, is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.
