TOP 10 INVENTIONS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD part 1
"NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION"
You must be aware of the line, and it's quite simple that if we need something we do lots of effort to get that and if it not possible by the source and means available then we try to build something, And that leads us to the edge of invention. Earlier days, This phrase was followed very seriously, but nowadays it is being changed slightly. We have replaced the 'Necessity' to 'Desire'. Here, I have recalled the past and gathered 10 of the most important inventions of Men that changed the world we live today.
It is personally my favourite invention because I am addicted to it. The television set was invented by not one person but a group of numerous personnel. The principal idea was based on photo-conductivity of the element selenium, founded by Willoughby Smith and the successful practical invention of television is first made by J.L. Baird, a Scottish engineer. Today it is a very useful device to get the information of all the activity that is happening in the world. And it is also a major source of indoor entertainment.

Before the invention of Clock(or watch), We used the sun to use as a time-telling tool but as you are guessing how they are aware of the time in the night, let it be clear that is the stars and the moon that helped them, but there were lots of limitations. Nowadays, It is quite simple because of the invention of Clock, that we work very efficiently and in time.

Sir Graham Bell played a very important role in revolutionising the world, as now, we don’t see even a single person without a phone in his hands or in his pocket.
