Timeline of historic inventions
The
timeline of historic inventions
is a chronological list of particularly important or significanttechnologicalinventions.
 Note:
Dates for inventions are often controversial. Inventions are often invented by severalinventors around the same time, or may be invented in an impractical form many years beforeanother inventor improves the invention into a practical form. Where there is ambiguity, the dateof the first known working version of the invention is used here.
