Our ability to create new tools is a pretty big deal. Here are ten of my favorites.

1 The Wheel

Of course this would be on here. You use the wheel for just about every single day of your entire life. So it's pretty important...


2 Fire

Me cook food, me feed family, me build civilization.


3 Electricity

What's the worst thing that can happen on a lazy day at home? The electricity goes out.


4 Writing

Before we figured out the idea out to write symbols down that could mean something, there was no way to communicate ideas to future generations. Plus without writing I wouldn't have been able to jot down this awesome blog.

Power of Words

5 The Printing Press

9 Automobile

Think about it, before the car if you wanted to go somewhere it would take forever. The idea that I could get in my car and be in Las Vegas in a few hours is just mind blowing.
