Farnsworth. The television was also one of the greatest inventions which has been evolved from mechanical to electronic to color to digital to smart and now 3D versions. People typically spend around 3-4 hours watching TV per day and it has drastically impacted family and social life. The significance of TV is so elementary that one cannot think of a world without televisions. Although internet is another important media the usage of television is still deeply routed in the daily routines of many people. The length of TV usage is stable. People watch round about 3 hours television per day. This number has not declined since 90s and shows the high significance of this invention.

The World Wide Web as we know was first predicted by Arthur Clarke when he wrote that one day satellites would bring accumulated knowledge of the world to our fingertips, combing the telephone, photocopier, television and computer.

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics that cures several infections in human beings without harming them. The Penicillin was mass produced during World War II to rid servicemen of venereal diseases and is still used as a standard antibiotic for infections. It was one of the most famous discoveries made in the field of healthcare. It is interesting how this almost unintended invention saved so many lives over the years.

5. Telephone

Alexander Graham Bell joined two cups with a thread at the bottom of both ends and used it to talk from one end and listen from the other. This has been the basic work for another revolutionary invention that is today the attachment that we all carry in our hands or pockets. The telephone which later also developed as a mobile phone has had life-saving impact on mankind especially in the field of business and communication. The extension of audible speech from within one room and across the world is a work unrivaled till today. Mobile phones have even increased their significance ever since they could unite more and more abilities like calculators, weather forecast and many more abilities. Round about 80% of 10-year-old children already own a smart phone in modern societies. This also shows how widespread the technology is throughout the whole population.

6. Internet

The internet was first developed in 1973 by Vinton Cerf backed by the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). Its initial use was to provide a network of communication within research labs and universities within United States and expanded overtime. This invention (along with the World Wide Web) has been the foremost revolutionary invention of the 20th century. In 1996, more than 25 million computers were connected through the internet across 180 countries. This huge number shows the rise of the internet in the early stages of the invention. Today there are only very few households who are actually not connected to the internet.
