Most entrepreneurs would love to call themselves innovators, and we have also seen multiple brands coming up with innovative ideas to fetch more clients. The last couple of years has been quite a roller coaster ride for companies and business people to bring their ideas to work. Throughout history, we have many individuals for their inventions that helped our world become technologically advanced. In this blog, we will discuss personal achievements rather than focusing on a group or brands. To offer you a perspective, the names we will discuss have achieved some significant milestones and now, without any further adieu, let’s dive in.
Leonardo Da Vinci
There aren’t many like him as far back in history. Most know him as a significant Renaissance artist, but he has also been established to be one of the most outstanding engineers. At a time when we had zero technological advancements, Vinci invented the very first helicopter along with a heavy-duty battle tank. He was also the critical personality behind the designs of various robots and submarines.
If there is one person from whom Americans got the entrepreneurship spirit, it will always be Edison. He boasts many inventions, including electric bulbs, phonographs, movie cameras, alkaline batteries, etc. Thomas Edison was a very successful businessman of his era.
Thales Of Miletus
Let us take you back to the 6th century BC; Thales is considered Western philosophy’s father. He could fully explain the astronomical discoveries of that time to the people without any mythological references. To put a cherry on the cake, he is also credited with being the founder of mathematics.
All of us are aware of the electric car company that goes by his second name; however, don’t be surprised to know that he wasn’t the founder. Tesla has established an image of the world’s best geek where he was always seen fixing things that weren’t even malfunctioned. It is said that he enjoyed the process so much that he ended up inventing numerous items. If we discuss a few, the list includes electric motors, alternating current, motor boats, etc. Specific papers also suggest he was behind radar and wireless communication technology.
To count the achievements, let’s start with the most significant one. Franklin was one of America’s founding fathers. He was a brilliant scientist and had a massive list of inventions under his name. A few such stories are bifocal lenses and lightning conductors. Going through the history pages, B Franklin was also an esteemed diplomat and activist.
You can call him the man responsible for introducing the internet to the world. If we discuss the inventions of the 20th century, the internet will be counted as the most significant one. However, there was ARPANET that the Pentagon used, and its history dates back to 1969. He must be duly credited with getting this tech to an advanced level when later, in 1991, he was able to deliver the World Wide Web to the public. It took a tremendous amount of research for him and his team to finally be able to develop browsers, HTML code, and servers. These are just a few names considered the world’s best innovators. Through their inventions and discoveries, we can develop many advanced technologies that are quite a common sight today.
