Overview

Great Inventions by James Dyson

This ultimate guide to inventions features more than 700 discoveries and technological advances that have shaped the world as we know it. Learn how the hovercraft emerged from an empty cat-food tin, how woman's corsets led to the invention of the modern umbrella, and how the first traffic light ended up killing the policeman who operated it.

From the dawn of humanity to the present day - from early Persian ice cream and the Roman rope-powered dental drill to the perfections of the paperclip, the invention of the microchip, and the cloning of Dolly the Sheep - here are the objects that make us who we are and the stories of the people who gave life to them.
