In the history of the world, everything happened for the first time. We’re not just talking about inventing the computer, but about the first selfie, the first Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and the first rights to drive a motorcycle for a woman.
Someday, our great-grandchildren will look at photos of the hadron collider or the first 3D printer and wonder how they were invented so long ago. At the last point, you will see the pearl of the collection!
10. First Artificial Heart, 2015
AbioCor made the first completely artificial heart. It works with a rechargeable energy source and AbioCor has already tested it in 15 patients, but the company has stopped developing the product.
9. First Car, 1896
The first Henry Ford-designed car in his garage was called the Ford Quadricycle. It ran on gasoline and moved on 4 bicycle tires. Following this success, Henry Ford decided to create the Ford Motor Company in 1903.
8. First Cell Phone, 1973
This device weighed more than 1 kg, charged only half an hour, and took 10 hours to charge. The day Martin Cooper invented the world’s first cell phone, he called a competitor and told them that he was talking on his cell phone.
7. First Selfie, 1839
Robert Cornelius improved Louis Daguerre’s technology and, as a result, received this image. It was not only the first selfie, but also the first distinct human portrait in history!
6. Annie Edson Taylor, 1901
Annie Edson Taylor became an adventurer in an attempt to earn money. His goal was to cross Niagara Falls in a barrel, and he did. He was 63 years old and was the first person to do it!
5. First Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, 1931
The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan was first decorated in 1931. It was decorated with cans, toys, and blueberries. Since 1933, it has become a tradition, and the Christmas tree is decorated in early December.
4. Sally Halterman, 1937
This is the first woman in Washington to have been granted a license to ride a motorcycle. She was told that she was very young and then that she was quite young.
But Sally passed the exams multiple times, fought for her rights, and finally got her license!
3. First Public Showing Of The Bikini, 1946
The new style of swimsuit is called Bikini Atoll. The creator of the modern bikini is considered the Parisian fashion designer Louis Reard.
The bikini was first shown in public on July 5, 1946, by Micheline Bernardini, a dancer at the Casino de Paris.
2. First Mcdonald’s Restaurant, 1948
It is located in San Bernardino. At first, Richard and Maurice McDonald sold barbecue food, but then they reopened the restaurant with fries, potato chips, orange juice, hamburgers, and Coca-Cola.
Now you can find not only the restaurant, but also a museum and gift shop here!
1. First Apple Computer, 1976
This is the first computer developed by Steve Wozniak and presented to the public by Steve Jobs. It was purchased by only one person: Paul Terrell.
The next day, Jobs appeared barefoot at Terrell’s computer store, The Byte Shop, and made the first deal in Apple’s history.
