Let s Communicate From the First Written Word to the Internet: takes us through the most important human landmark ever: writing, dating from more than 5,000 years ago. We look at scripts from pictorial to alphabet (early ones had no vowels!), paper and writing tools, the invention of movable type by the Chinese (1045), later reinvented by Gutenberg, and methods of signalling. The telephone was actually Italian immigrant Antonio Meucci s invention (ratified in 2002), which gave birth to the cellphone and smart phone. And we round off with a whizz through computers, the internet and the WWW! Incredible Inventions takes a lively, sweeping look at some of the most important light-bulb moments in history. You ll see how one idea often led to another, and revealed something new and exciting about our world. The four books provide a road map of inventions, divided along the lines of optics; movement; communications; and agriculture/industry. Dotted throughout are inventors hilarious flops and oddities, too. Feeling brave? How about a ride in an aerial steam carriage!
