History’s Most Underrated Inventions

The following link provides a list of items that the columnist suggests are some of the most underrated inventions. Such lists are subjective, but I enjoy reading them and considering whether I agree with the assertions that have been made.

The hard part in some respects is trying to get a consensus on what kind of recognition should be given in order to say that something was not underrated. Anyway, that is a different discussion.

Here is the list. Use the link above to try and understand his reasoning.

1. The chariot.
2. Concrete.
3. Horse collar.
4. Longbow.
5. Eyeglasses.
6. Rotary printing press.
7. Barbed wire.
8. Carborundum.
9. Bakelite.
