Top Ten Inventions in the Last 200 Years

The Top Ten
1 The Internet

Sometimes would the world be better without the internet. Possibly people did survive without it. What's wrong with reading books, talking to people in real life, you will find board games easier than video games no I'm not on about snakes and ladders. There are many board games out there and talking to people face to face.

You wouldn't be on this computer or whatever you are on right now if there was no internet! I would probally die without internet, the only thing that would be good about no internet is my homework

It went beyond any other invention including Microprocessors and Computers. It helped getting may other inventions and ideas created and expanding beyond any wild imagintation

Yes, You wouldn't be leaving these comments without the internet. However, you wouldn't be using the internet without electricity!

2 Automobiles

Love cars so much I die for the bugatti veyron and the ford mustang. How cool would it be to own your dream car. Cars are to die for. Ohh

We would be late for everything without them

I would commit suicide if there were no cars

Automobiles. Proudly serving the world since 1885.

3 Light Bulb

Without it: can't see in the dark so there wouldn't be any interior rooms, car can't see in the dark so you wouldn't drive at night, there'd be no monitor for your computer and thus there'd be no internet for this list.

We need nightlight because they keep you safe and alarmed. They help kids and their fears and gives them reassurance of the dark.

It is amazing because it gives us light and then we don't need torches or candles.

It's a good invention, Thomas Edison you rock dude!

4 Antibiotics

Antibiotics and all immunity boosting drugs should be bracketed together. Although they work slightly differently, the principle remains the same. Increasing internal fighting power against viruses and bacteria.

In 1817, there were very little antibiotics and most of them were from natural entities. 200 years later, we have an antibiotic for almost every single illness. Morphine, Penicillin, Smallpox Vaccine, Flu Shot, Diabetes Vaccines, Dramamine, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin and millions more have helped people increase the average lifespan from 50-60 to 80-90. Why is this #11?

A lot of people would be dead without them!

Some people will die with out them

5 Personal Computer

You can't access internet without this one and for mobile phones, it costs very expensive

The personal computer makes so much information easily accessible.

Empowered indidual, leading to increased productivity and equality

IPods are some stream music play games!

6 Television

After that, the second greatest invention was the mute button.

As if this wouldn't be in the top 5.

Giant step for communication

13 Electric Guitar The electric guitar is a type of guitar that unlike an acoustic guitar, is solid body instead of hollow. They use pickups and amps to produce sound that's audible from more than a few feet. They are mainly used in rock and metal music and in those genres are commonly the main instruments. A few notable more.

Electric guitars gave us music. Music gave us The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Rolling Stones, and many more great artists. Therefore, without electric guitars or instruments, we wouldn't have music.

Electric bass, Dude... To get the funk out.

Is there really any doubt?
