Descriptions : Curiosity will eventually lead to innovation Fortunately we are an imaginative species who does a lot of wondering Way back to when man first learned to walk upright and began communicating with each other by pointing and shouting we can find the earliest examples Somebody once thought I know we can move that heavy rock or dead buffalo by rolling it along on tree trunks because it is easier than dragging it over the ground This of course led to the wheel It must have been around that time that some other clever soul worked out that if he held some meat over that hot fiery thing then it tasted better It seems basic but it was innovation Somebody somewhere decided to take the risk of burning their food down into ashes as they knew the burning logs did just to see if it tasted any better But I bet there was someone else laughing at him and saying dont do that its a terrible idea or whatever is was they would have said back then And thats innovation too Thats discovery and invention We have been doing it ever since in one form or another and we have come a long way as a species thanks to people who take risks and ignore the advice of wiser ones And that in a nutshell is what this book is all about You see that for all of our innovations and invention over the last six thousand years it is incredible to understand that the one thing that has not developed at all is the human brain Believe it or not the pre historic human brain was perfectly capable of understanding how to use Windows and could easily have landed a rocket on the moon if only the information it was given was better evolved at the time The brain itself was already fine and all it needed was programming That of course is what has happened to it over the many years since Man has programmed its brain to learn new and better ways of doing things And curiosity has led it to evolve from pointing and shouting fire and tree trunks into where we are now It is curiosity that has led to invention and migration I wonder what is over that hill over there There maybe be waterossibly better vegetation Maybe there are of those rabbit things we like to eat Lets go and have a look This would have taken them from caves and into man made huts and so on and so on And all the time at every step of the way somebody would also have been saying to them No no Thats a terrible idea It will never work Or a mother shouted dont climb onto the back of that thing Jonny its not safe You will hurt yourself which was followed by Wham and I told you so But as we all know Jonny must have got right back on that horse More recently in somebody said of the radio the wireless music box is of no imaginable commercial value Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular Well that would have been a fair question at then but imagine a world without the radio And the same was said of the television when it was dismissed as a novelty American families will not sit around staring at a plywood box for hours at a time How wrong can you be If the world should blow itself up the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying It cant be done Peter Ustinov Contents Crude Oil Clintons Ditch Its a Little Short of Madness Thomas Jefferson Unzipped The True Story of the Zipper The Bra The Safety Razor Kitty Litter The Ballpoint Pen The Railway Networks The Motor Car Velcro Ecommerce Post It Notes Rubber Black and Decker Workmate Barcodes The Tin Can Underground Trains The Radio The Telescope Air Conditioning The Robotic Arm The X Ray The Telephone Computers The Jet Engine Satellite Communications Microwave Ovens Fireman s Safety Hood The Parachute Ancient Inventions still in Everyday Use
