What was the best invention ever created?

What was the best invention ever created?
I know this question can be very difficult to answer because it's practically impossible to choose just one option, isn't it? But let's try it, haha.

Over the decades, so many incredible things have been created that are almost impossible to quantify them all. But surely we all have something that has drawn us much attention in some way / for some specific reason. So, what would be your choice and why?

In my case, the creation of the telephone (by Alexander Graham Bell) is one of the things that fascinates me the most. I mean, being able to connect voices at any distance? Oh my... Shut up and take my money right now, haha.


Honestly, I think the computer and the internet are the two best inventions ever made, to me at least. The computer because the ability to store, share and create data in a virtual space is actually pretty amazing when you think about it. The computer has far transcended what it originally was and even then it was really useful for arithmetic and storing data that doesn't fade away or age. The internet I feel connected the world in a way which couldn't have been achieved any other way. Nowadays you can find out almost anything on the internet and see pictures of places that you have never been to instead of hearing second hand or even folktale like descriptions. Not to mention the entertainment factor of the internet which I most definitely appreciate. So yeah those are my favorite inventions since I feel it would be hell without those two things.

I was about to write the same thing. They have their cons, but internet, smartphones and computers really have changed our lives. If you think about it, 10 years ago we would have never imagined technology would come this far. With smartphones, you basically have a mini computer and an internet connection with you everywhere. It's great.

Agree, to me I'm not sure is the best one, but for sure is the most used one. Internet has made our life easier, you can pay all your home services, school, medical services, bank issues, all by internet. Obviously, you have to pay attention to what kids can achieve by using it, in good and bad ways, but that is why it requires supervision by parents or tutors. But to me so far, interned let us connect to all the world instantly, and that is absolutely great.

The internet is not only for the communication but also for the digital technology like cloud storage and cloud computing. Definitely, internet had made life easier and had changed the landscape of the business industries. From the offline stores, the online stores are now dominating the economy in terms of sales and purchases. Well, internet is the best thing that we have in the past 4 decades or so.

Ah, this is so hard to pick because so many inventions completely changed our lives and improved the overall quality. I think that we should always be grateful for such amazing investors that we currently have and the ones that have already passed away. I am a bit tied between electricity and the internet. I feel like those two are probably the most important inventions because they have had the biggest impacts on everybody's life. I can't imagine my life without either one.

The best innovation is definitely the internet. You can easily get access to a wide variety of news and that too for free. I have subscribed to many online TV channels for this particular reason. I get my daily news from those channels. Moreover the internet has made it possible for me to keep in touch with my friends and relatives from other countries. I also work as an online freelancer and I earn a decent amount from this. I equally love my freelancing job. The internet has also enabled me to meet people from across the globe.

I would say that electricity has had the most impact on our lives. It has given us the ability to heat/cool ourselves, prepare food with ease and most modern inventions (computers etc) would be impossible without it. From this first invention, alternative energy sources are being explored as alternatives. I would love to have a glimpse into modern life in 2050.
Posted by Rhombus on 10-17-2017
I also agree with you. I think electricity has opened the door to many other investments and thanks to it we have access to many other resources that even today work for electricity.

Internet. If you truly think about, how amazing is it? It's crazy to think that someone thought about it and was able to develop it properly. We rely on it so much nowadays that I'm not sure how the world would be if we hadn't come up with the internet. The amount of things that have been come up with thanks to the internet as well, it is just amazing and is extremely beneficial to people all over the world.
Posted by kingcool52 on 10-17-2017
For me, is the internet. I think is one of the greatest creation that the man has done. It's a source for millions of things like entertainment, communication and for research. Nowadays, tons of people have access to it and it can help to learn about many new things. Is not a secret to anyone that the internet can make life a little bit easier.

I think the internet is among the 10 best inventories of humanity. No doubt this involution has transformed the world and will transform even more in the next years.
Posted by hermessantos on 10-18-2017
I think the best invention ever created is the light bulb. It opens the path to possibilities in electricity. This leads to the invention of other gadgets such as telephone and many other equipment. This serves as the basis or basic principles to invent more and to innovate existing gadgets.
Posted by saygorem on 10-17-2017
I think the internet is the greatest invention. Some might reject my idea and say the computer is the greatest invention, there would be no internet without the computer. In that case, I can say if televisions were never invented, the computer would never come before us, if there was no telephone, watching TV was impossible, if there was no radio, a telephone would never come before us. The inventions are connected.

There are a number of inventions from wheel to electricity, from computers to internet. Well I am kidding. All the technologies that we have today run on electriclty. The electricity was produced via the concept of fire. Almost Everything started with it. Our life is so much connected to fire. You are able to read this because somewhere a fire is burning in a power plant that generates electricity to power the internet.

It's hard to tell since every invention revolutionizes the era that it is created in. So in that sense we could point out a few inventions that were most important of their times but not the greatest invention of all times
Posted by Marvadaum on 10-17-2017
I also agree with you! I think every invention marked his time. The wheel, the car, the electricity, the train, the airplane. I think every invention had its importance for the time.
Posted by hermessantos on 11-01-2017
Telephone, handsets, computers, Internet, auto mobiles, light, houses etc. To each one has a different kind of benefit it gives to man. Personally, I'm not sure I can say that A is better than B, all I can say is that they are all a great invention with different benefits to man, and this makes them all very important.
Posted by Heatman on 10-17-2017
The computer is the best invention in this modern times. Without the computer, there will be no internet and we have to admit how beneficial is the internet to man. Aside from the automation of work, the computer has also become a secondary means of communications via the internet applications. In less than 100 years, the digital technology have advanced by leaps and bound so in the coming decades, expect more surprises to come. Even the cellphone is a by-product of the computer’s digital technology.

The greatest invention of humankind is God. Humans get lonely. We feel empty and depressed. There were times when fear overcomes us and we succumb to negative emotions. We then invented the concept of a supreme being that sees us all. God was created to cover up all of our weaknesses as humans. We say God created everything as an excuse to lack of knowledge. God was was invented as a cover up for things we can't explain. A very effective invention.

I don't know what to choose, it is really a hard question because all inventions were made to make our life easier so, fire is the best invention that was created because fire helps us in our daily life, we can cook on fire, use it for making warm, or in some cases you can use the fire to make light in the dark places.

I have quite a lot of inventions running through my mind like electricity, internet, aeroplane and telephone like you said and so much more.

Amongst all the outstanding impossibilities brought to light through the act of invention, I think the best invention of all time for me is electronic visuals in general. The fact that am able to watch recorded or live events on a box with a glass screen(television) engineered by smaller boards on the inside is simply mind blowing. The television has been around for a very long time with so many classic updates over the years that people have stopped seeing the magic in it's creation.

My second best invention of all is time itself. Have you ever stop to ask yourself how we came about time, the way it's put in place to measure up day and night?

It all started in 1500Bc in Egypt when the T-square device was created by a large number of devices invented to measure the passage of time from the cast of shadows through its crossbar on a nonlinear rule. This study was called horology. Confusing right? Let's just leave it at that. All I can say is that time is one of the best invention.

I think that the electric energy was the best invention ever created, because from this it was possible to emerge many other invesments like the radio, the TV, the computer and consequently even the internet.
Posted by hermessantos on 10-18-2017
I believe so. Telephone really makes the world bring closer than ever. Imagine, it will take weeks/months to receive a message from someone else through snail mail. Thank god, we passed those stone-age eras.
Posted by ColdFlameChris on 10-23-2017
They are too many to choose from, but if i am to select the best invention of all time, i believe that the light invention made by Thomas Edison still stand shoulder and head above others.
Posted by babyright on 10-29-2017
In the modern era yes. But if we take a look at the history of mankind there has been more important inventions like agriculture which made possible for the humans to settle down and reproduce on a larger scale. In that sense each era has it's most important invention
Posted by Marvadaum on 10-29-2017
I would say electricity. It completely changed people's lives, and without electricity there would be no internet! A microwave is another pretty great invention, but computers and microwaves, TV etc. would not operate without electricity so I think that is the best invention ever truly.
Posted by kgord on 10-30-2017
I think the internet is the best thing ever created because it connects the world. IDK how many of you were around before the internet but we use to get a ton of mail. Because any kid of bill advertising letter writing was like texting etc all came through the mail. These days 99% of that stuff is all electronic and done through email or texting.
Posted by Soulwatcher on 11-02-2017
This is one question that can't just have one answers because everything invented is just excellent but choosing one,I will say the internet. Bringing the world to become a global village, this is awesome and amazing. It baffles me a lot. We can connect to so many people round the world at the same time.This is beautiful.

I agree with the others on here saying that the internet is the best invention ever. Nowadays anyone with a sufficient grasp of English could learn anything online, and shop instantly and remotely. This was the stuff of cyberpunk novels in the years before the dot-com boom.
Posted by laconic scout on 11-28-2017
Probably the light bulb. I mean without it we're all walking around in total darkness in our homes. Tripping and falling all over everything.
Posted by NickJ on 12-18-2017
I think the pen or pencils. All the invention right now started in a simple pen or pencil. Inventors write, draw and create a lot of plans about their inventions by using the simple pen, by using this thing also, we are able to release our feelings by writing something, like poems, music, etc.
Posted by ion on 07-01-2018
I think the best invention ever created was the technology. I can't specify a thing but mostly technologies especially gadgets are ones influencing especially youth. The what we called internet is also one of the most influencing technology now a days as this serves as a new way to communicate with other people even if you are located in other countries but you can still connect, talk or even see them face to face thru video call, how amazing is that? isn't it?.
Posted by nekonieden on 07-09-2018
I’d have to say that the best invention ever created is probably a tossup between the light bulb and the alternating current, both created by Nikola Tesla. Fun fact: Thomas Edison didn’t, in fact, create the light bulb, and only patented the invention after stealing it from Nikola Tesla. Anyhow, both of these are pretty crucial elements which are big parts of our daily lives. The impact of the light bulb is quite obvious, but without alternating current—and consequentially, the AC motor—we wouldn’t have most of the technology we have today.
Posted by Denis_P on 07-28-2018
WHOA! This is really a tough question. My mind goes in so many different directions. I think of inventions that help with sight – the light bulb so we can see when it's dark I think of inventions that help with transportation – the automobile. I think of computers and the Internet – tools that facilitate communication with anyone anywhere in the world. About the only invention, I wish we had never come up are weapons of war. But in the end, when I think of the greatest invention, it's something simple. Pen and Paper.

The computer creator beat them all. Smartphones, robots and many gadgets build on this invention. The computer is the best creation ever. I have no doubt about this because a computer makes the world digital.
Posted by stbrians on 10-15-2018
A lot of comments here mentioned about tge internet and computers. But by definition, an invention can be a procesa too. Thus, I think the process of scientific method is the best invention ever created.

The simple idea to ask questions, come up with hypothesis to answer the question, test the hypothesis and evaluate the test result brings us internet, computer and travel us to the moon.

The second best invention to me is writing because it helps us to distribute, store and recall ideas across the time.

Easily the internet. It has completely changed literally almost everything we do. The way we communicate with each other, the way we get our information, the way we go shopping, and countless other activities.
