- You will find wheel everywhere from the wheel of a truck to a microscopic wheel of a wrest watch.
- In short, wheel is the base of industrial revolution.
- Imagine for while that paper has not yet been invented.
- While imagining this, you will realize that how world looked like without paper and what impacts it had on the progress and prosperity of human being.

- An incandescent light globe is an electric light which produces light with a wire filament heated to a high temperature by an electric current which passes through it.
- The credit of inventing light bulb goes to Joseph Swan and Thomas Edison but the Edison’s version was most applicable and was able to outstrip the others.
- No doubt, Thomas Edison is the greatest inventor of human history.
- Transformation of energy into light is a great achievement which revolutionized our lives.
- The bulb which was invented before Edison was not able to bear heat.
- The importance of light bulb in human history can never ever be denied.
- Light bulb has changed our nights into days.
- Bulb has expanded our working hours.

- The invention of the printing press is one of the most influential events in the second millennium.
- Like wheel, paper and light bulb, it also revolutionized our lives.
- Johannes Gutenberg invented printing press in the Holy Roman Empire around 1440.
- Before the invention of printing press, there were a few handwritten books.
- And those books were in the possession of some religious sects and knowledge loving riches.
- We can say illiterate and uncivilized world converted to most literate and civilized world only because of printing press.
- It is amazing that an ordinary printing press of 15th century could print only five books in a year.
- The importance of printing press cannot be denied.
- It converted ignorant world to civilized world.
- Printing press is indeed a first step in to modern era.
- Marconi played a vital role in inventing radio.
- Basically the idea of wireless communication predates the discovery of radio.
- Radio was developed gradually.
- At last, after making continuous efforts, Marconi succeeded to send a radio signal across the English Channel.
- Without any hesitation, I say that the radio is most important and useful invention in human history.
- The communication among different parts of the world, among ships, space stations and airplanes is possible due to radio.
- No doubt, the invention of radio is forethought of other inventions.
- Compass is used for navigation and orientation.
- It shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions or points.

- It was a naturally magnetized ore of iron.
- At very first, it was used for navigation by the Song Dynasty.

- Only one thing will be useful in such situation which is known as bicycle.
- This is still a most favorite convince of modern industrialized countries like China and Japan.
- It is indeed one of most useful inventions for mankind.
- A sewing machine is used to stitch fabric and other materials together with threads.
