20 Most Important Inventions of All Time


Fire or the Wheel? Electricity or the internet? Which invention is the most important to mankind? I would like to settle the score and have ranked the most influential inventions to man. My rankings are based on the significance provided and the effect that each one of these inventions had on our daily lives. So take a look at my rankings and see if they are in line with your evaluation of each.

20. Anesthesia


1846 – There would be no way to do surgery and study the body without anesthesia..



12th century – Would the Americas have been discovered without the compass?

18. Cotton Gin


1793 – Probably resulted in the end of Slavery while also providing more time for other discoveries.
