Blueprint for the modern automobile was perfected in Germany and France in the late 1800s, Americans dominated the industry in the first half of the twentieth century. Henry Ford, General Motors and Chrysler emerging became the “Big Three” auto companies by the 1920. Manufacturers funneled their resources to the military during World War II, and afterward automobile production in Europe and Japan soared to meet demand
The internet was no made by a specific inventor. The internet has many contributions for various people that has made the internet evolve over time. It started over 50 years ago and was made for the government as a weapon in the Cold war. We use the internet for everything, to finding old friends on Facebook, to helping you do the right format for papers. It helps everyone around the world, we would be really lost without it.
Personal Computer (PC)
PCs have grown so much over the years. It all started in world war ll, the giant machines that now a days doesn't even look like a computer. IN the 1970s individual technology was very popular. These personal computers didn't have all of the useful things we have now a days but they did have mathematical calculation games. Now a days mostly everyone has a personal computer. Which we can do vary of different things that help us in the world.
Cell Phones/Smart Phones
Cell phones started to form in 1983 and has grown more designs and functions.Cell phones use to just be to call someone, there was no texting no apps no internet. A lot of the cell phones made now are basically little computers, it has all of the things you need that you can have on a computer. In 1908 a Professor Albert Jahnke and the Oakland Transcontinental Aerial Telephone and Power Company claimed to have developed a wireless telephone but they were accused of fraud and the charge was then dropped, after that they did not move on with the production.Beginning in 1918 the German railroad system tested wireless telephony on military trains between Berlin and Zossen.
In the year of 1794, Eli whitney invented the cotton gin. the cotton gin is a better and more useful way to work.
The cotton gin restructured the production of cotton by speeding up the process. Although the invention of the cotton gin was a huge impact back then, it is not that important right now. It is still used but there were many changes for the cotton gin.
Eli whitney invented the interchangeable parts in 1798. Gunmaking was considered one of the most skilled work out there. It was extremely hard to repair them. But thanks to eli whitney, interchangeable parts allowed guns to get fixed with pre made-parts. Interchangeable parts are not used in modern day.
Thomas savery, an english military engineer, invented the steam engine in 1698. he worked on solving the problem of pumping water out of coal mines, which he indeed did with the invention. The steam engine helped pump the water out of the mines in a much more productive way. The steam engine is still used today to help generate electricity.
Henry ford invented the assembly line on december 1st, 1913. It was invented for an easier way to assemble cars. Hence the name assembly line. This invention helped the production of making cars by three fold. The assembly line is used today to help the car manufacturing progress.
- A transistor is a 3-terminal, solid state electronic device. It controls in which you can control the electric current/voltage between two of the terminals by simply applying an electrical charge to the 3rd terminal.The third terminal to a transistor is what allows us to make an amplifier for electric signals, like the ones for our radio. Known as the “...The switches that control switches that control other switches.” Said to be one of the most important inventions of the 20th century- Building block for the processor. IIf we didn’t have it “some say our servers would be three stories high, and laptops could be a prop on Star Trek. Our televisions would still use vacuum tubes, and our cars couldn't guide us to the nearest Indian restaurant.” Dec. 16, 1947 the transistor had been invented at Bell Labs.
- A microchip is a set of interconnected electronic components such as transistors and resistors, that are printed onto a tiny chip of a semiconducting material, such as silicon or germanium. Invented by Jack Kilby & Robert Noyce on March 24, 1959. Without the chip, the commonplace conveniences of modern life—personal computers, the Internet, anything involving digital technology and displays, even something as simple as the handheld calculator—would be the stuff seen in science fictional movies.
- The telephone and telegraph were the most important forms of communications. In 1828 the first telegraph invented in the USA was invented by Harrison Dyar. This is how it worked: the telegraph sent electrical sparks through chemically treated paper tape to burn dots and dashes. Samuel Morse- Inventor of several improvements of telegraph- Created “Morse Code." -The telephone was invented by Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell in the 1870’s who had both designed devices that can transmit speech electrically.
- There was no one person who created the television, it had been worked on and advanced by many groups of inventors. It was the most common means of entertainment. Motion picture brought a whole another idealism to society, a new state of mind. The first TV was mechanical- Then it was made electrically because it worked more effectively. Paul Nipkow had a critical part in the evolution of the TV. German engineer, he developed a rotating disk that transmitted motion pictures over a series of wires- Invented in 1884
