As always, this is my very personal choice and this list is absolutely subjective. I know I have forgotten many important inventions but I had to choose just five inventions. I hope you like the list: Wheel, Communications, Printing Press, Computers, Internet
We don’t know who invented it, but it changed the world of transportation and commerce. We couldn’t forget the wheel in this list. As ancient as the civilization, as useful as the fire. I know everybody knows but, according to wikipedia a wheel is: “a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axial bearing. The wheel is one of the main components of the wheel and axle which is one of the six simple machines”.

Radio, televisions, phones, telegraphs… they all made our life easier and… and funnier.

3.- Printing Press
Johann Gutenberg invented it in the 1430s and this invention changed the world for the next centuries… newspapers, books… everything changed.

Agree or not, these machines have changed our minds and we cannot understand the last few years of civilization without them.
