INVENTIONS

 

JEANS

Levi Strauss (1829 – 1902) was the man who invented and marketed blue jeans. In 1873, Strauss patented the idea of using copper rivets at the stress points of sturdy work trousers. They were sold initially to the miners of the Californian Gold Rush.

TEA BAGS

Tea bags were invented by Thomas Sullivan around 1908. The first bags were made from silk. Sullivan was a tea and coffee merchant in New York who began packaging tea samples in tiny silk bags. Many of his customers brewed their tea in the bags rather than in the traditional way of brewing loose tea in a teapot, and the tea bag was born.

SANDWICH

The sandwich was invented by John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich (1718 – 1792). In 1762, the story goes, he was too involved in a card game to have a formal meal, so he instructed his cook to put some meat between two slices of bread to save him time. He named the snack after himself.

TELEPHONE

The telephone (meaning “far sound”) is the most widely used telecommunications device. It was invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell. His device transmitted speech sounds over electric wires.

ZIP

The zip was developed in 1913 by the Swedish – American engineer, Gideon Sundbach. He was successful in selling his invention, which he called the Hookless 2. He sold these fasteners to the US Army, who put zip on soldiers’ clothing and equipment during World War I.

AQUALUNG

The aqualung is a breathing apparatus that supplies oxygen to divers and allows them to stay underwater for several hours. It was invented in 1943 by Jacques – Yves Cousteau and Emile Gagnan. This safe, easy – to – use and reliable device was the first modern scuba system.

POTATO CRISPS

In 1853 a customer at the Moon Lake Bridge resort in Saratoga Springs, New York, was being very awkward about his French Fries – he was complaining that they were too thick. Chef George Crum made up another batch but the customer still wasn’t satisfied. Annoyed by the customer, Crum made a batch that was so thin it was impossible to eat with a fork. To his surprise, the customer loved them, and so does the rest of the world these days.

MARSHMALLOWS

These soft sweets were originally made and eaten by the Egyptians more than three thousands years ago. They made them from the root of the plant which shares the same name and grows by the bank of the river Nile.
