He is a pioneer and visionary in the wireless communications industry. Martin Cooper, a vice president with Motorola, led a team in the 1970s that had a crazy goal — to create a portable, cellular telephone. By 1973, he and his team had created the first cell phone, which weighed in at 2.5 pounds (1.1 kilograms). His first call was to a corporate rival, Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs, making it the first crank call made on a cell phone!(With eleven patents in the field, he is widely regarded as one of the leading inventors of the 20th Century and recognized as an innovator in radio spectrum management . He is considered the “father of the cell phone” and is also cited as the first person in history to make a handheld cellular phone call in public.

He is credited with numerous inventions that contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. These included a stock ticker, a mechanical vote recorder, a battery for an electric car, electrical power, recorded music and motion pictures.

  • Albert Einstein

Einstein-formal_portrait-35

You’d recognize that hair anywhere. It belongs to one of history’s greatest thinkers. As a physicist and mathematician, Albert Einstein’s theories of relativity generated new ways of looking at time, space, matter, energy and gravity. His work led to important advances such as the control of atomic energy, space exploration and applications of light.He was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics(along quantum mechanics). While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics ”for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”.The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory.

Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works. His great intellectual achievements and originality have made the word “Einstein” synonymous with genius.

  • Hedy Lamarr

Is there an inventor out there who knows more about agriculture and the U.S. South than George Washington Carver, the Father of Biochemical Engineering? We don’t think so.Carver’s reputation is based on his research into and promotion of alternative crops to cotton, such as peanuts, soybeans and sweet potatoes, which also aided nutrition for farm families. He wanted poor farmers to grow alternative crops both as a source of their own food and as a source of other products to improve their quality of life. The most popular of his 44 practical bulletins for farmers contained 105 food recipes using peanuts.[4] He also developed and promoted about 100 products made from peanuts that were useful for the house and farm, including cosmetics, dyes, paints, plastics, gasoline, and nitroglycerin.

  • Hero Of Alexandria

Way, way before the Industrial Revolution, the ancient Greek Hero of Alexandria came up with the first steam engine. He also whipped up the formula for the area of a triangle.Hero published a well recognized description of a steam-powered Engine called an aeolipile (hence sometimes called a “Hero engine”). Among his most famous inventions was a wind wheel, constituting the earliest instance of wind harnessing on land.He is said to have been a follower of the Atomists. Some of his ideas were derived from the works of Ctesibius

  • Grace Hopper

Grace Hopper was into computers long before any of us were, helping to build UNIVAC and invent the first compiler Language. A pioneer in the field, she was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark computer, and developed the first compiler for a computer programming language.She conceptualized the idea of machine-independent programming which led to the development of COBOL, one of the first modern programming languages.She even came up with the term “bug” after a moth ran amuck in her computer.

  • Alexander Graham Bel

Communication was in Alexander Graham Bell’s blood. Sure, innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone, he patented the telephone, but he also did a ton of research on hearing loss.Many other inventions marked Bell’s later life, including groundbreaking work in optical telecommunications, hydrofoils and aeronautics. In 1888, Bell became one of the founding members of the National Geographic Society. He has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.

  • Dean Kamen

Without Dean Kamen, you couldn’t cruise around in your sporty Segway. He’s also made hordes of kids crazy for bots through his competitive robot-building organization FIRST.Kamen is best known for inventing the product that eventually became known as the Segway PT, an electric, self-balancing human transporter with a sophisticated, computer-controlled gyroscopicstabilization and control system. The device is balanced on two parallel wheels and is controlled by moving body weight.

  • Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci excelled in every field (painting, sculpture, you name it), but rarely was his talent recognized. As the inventor of an early airplane, machine gun and armored tank, he was centuries ahead of his time.He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and “his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote He conceptualised a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator,[6] and the double hull, and he outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics

Among the works created by Leonardo in the 16th century is the small portrait known as the Mona Lisa or “la Gioconda”, the laughing one. In the present era it is arguably the most famous painting in the world. Its fame rests, in particular, on the elusive smile on the woman’s face

  • Henry Ford

OK, Mr. Model T wasn’t the first to manufacture vehicles, but Henry Ford did create vehicle mass production through the assembly line, which decreased production costs and time. Beep, beep!As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with “Fordism”: mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. His intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put dealerships throughout most of North America and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation but arranged for his family to control the company permanently.

  • Archimedes

archimedes-380x540

Archimedes was such a genius he got a screw and a principle named after him.Archimedes is generally considered to be the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time. He used the method of exhaustion to calculate the area under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an infinite series, and gave a remarkably accurate approximation of pi. He also defined the spiral bearing his name, formulae for the volumes of surfaces of revolution and an ingenious system for expressing very large numbers.

  • Tim Berners-Lee

Sir Isaac Newton is considered one of history’s great polymaths, having contributed to the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, theology, chemistry and biblical history. Here, his statue gazes approvingly at one of his most well-known inventions: the reflecting telescope. Newton and others certainly dreamed of traveling the stars. Next, learn about one of the men whose work helped get us there.

Newton’s Principia formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that dominated scientists’ view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. It also demonstrated that the motion of objects on the Earth and that of celestial bodies could be described by the same principles. By deriving Kepler’s laws of planetary motion from his mathematical description of gravity, Newton removed the last doubts about the validity of the heliocentric model of the cosmos.

  • James Watson
