Australians Innovative Ideas!
Australians inventions that have changed this country and benefited many overseas, we all have different inventions, each country has its own and I am listing what the Australians have invented over the years since the first entry into Australia by European settlers.
Australians have been leaders in inventions relating to maritime and Aeronauticas, like the Block box flight recorder that is been used by all planes around the world, the inflatable escape device used on planes a life saving idea if the planes land on sea or ground, other items are the surf ski, the wave piercing catamaran winged keel used by many boat builders around the world.
Australia lead the design in agricultural and mining sectors which include the grain strippers, the plough stump jump that saved a lot of breakdowns and machinery stresses, to the mechanical sheep shearing shears., the centrifugal motor, and the mechanical propulsion device.
Other interesting military inventions was the first scramjet a propulsion device for rockets, the underwater torpedo that is still being built in Bendigo also the huge gun ships, that was an interesting thing to see and my husband showed me the ordinance factory, originally owned by the government now mostly by a private sector. A good tour if you know the right people its like Fort Knox . Also weapons or weapons systems, the woomera, and the tank.
In the medical technology Australia has been at the forefront in the ultrasound, the bionic ear, ( go six million dollar man hehe ), the first plastic spectacle lenses, the electronic pacemaker that within it self has saved a few lives, the Multi focal contact lens, spray on artificial skin, something different, to the world leaders in anti-flu medications.
