    Post Great human inventions by country and chronological order






    Disclaimer: There are tens of thousands of human inventions through the ages and around the globe. The aim of this page is not to be extensive or encyclopedic, but rather to attempts to give an overview of the greatest and most useful inventions, those that have beeen fundamental to shape modern society as we know it. Feel free to suggest new additions, although I will set a maximum limit to 100 inventions.


    Here are a few rules about what can or cannot be listed:



    • Discoveries, scientific concepts and theories are excluded from the list.
    • There are often plenty of minor improvements and variants to existing technologies. Only the first invention or very important improvements (e.g. from black & white to colour photography) can be accepted.
    • Games and sports are not listed because they are not essential inventions for the progress of humanity..
    • A lot of complex modern technologies, such as space flight, nuclear power, or anything related to computers or the Internet are the result of the combined research of thousands of people around the world and therefore cannot be listed as single inventions here.
    • Some inventions have had a lot of pionneers, who may have developed a technology earlier, but only partially or in a non functional way. A famous example of early airplanes. Only the first functional invention is taken into account.
    • Inventions have to be specific, not vague categories like agriculture or chemistry.

    I totally agree that some European states such as Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Finland have been missed, not to mention that the inventions shown above look quite restricted. The current list of the countries has to be more expanded, it's also desirable to combine text with images in one place..
