Book Description:
Ideas that Changed the World combines the quality and breadth of a modern design museum with the high standards of a DK reference title. Stunning photography and beautifully written stories work together to give the reader a unique experience.

Readers will be struck with wonder by each item and sense the excitement that so many discoveries inspire.Each subject is introduced through text and a close-up photograph. Captivating icons lead the reader further into the story behind the object and then on to a collections spread featuring similar inventions and developments that shaped the design before and afterward.Some of the incredible inventions and ideas featured are: microscope (Charles Darwin s), telescope (Isaac Newton's), antibiotics, elevators, eyeglasses, the bicycle, auto pilot, the blackboard (as used by Albert Einstein), tin cans, umbrellas, buttons, TV, satellites, submarines, Captain Cook's travel cooking implements, the wheel, cement, a volcanologist's heat-proof uniform, the first Roman coin, bar codes, the first video game, the Walkman, the first Apple computer, surf boards, film animation, and much, much more!
