    Electricity and the Lightbulb. I consider this as the Mother and Father of all inventions.

    Without this, nothing else can be invented, and we are still in the darkness

    I consider electricity and lightbulb as the Modern invention, for mankind towards industrialisation. Fire was invented millions of years ago.

    Yeah he did say that. But he further said that if someone can invent a personal air conditioning unit that can attached to a person's body, it would even be better!

    That is okay I think they are great inventions. Simple and practical. Changed the world. Go Chinese inventors...haha

    Let's go way back and maybe talk technologies...like knapped flint tools. This allowed human brain to grow larger and evolve to make even more inventions. Then how about farming/agriculture? Sewing and clothes? Medicene? Music? Art? The camera obscura?

    It is not the inventions that are remarkable really...it is the human being that is remarkable.

    And lest we forget how about nunchukas??? Whaaa *Bruce Lee* hahaha

    On a side note, I wonder how many of man's inventions had a lot of help from the fairer sex Men like tinkering and toys; women tend to ask, "So what can it do?"

    http://www.history.com/news/bertha-b...-125-years-ago

    "Bertha packed up one of her husband’s cars, the recently completed Patent-Motorwagen No. 3, and with her two teenage sons in tow set out to visit her mother in Pforzheim. She didn’t tell Karl beforehand, but instead left him a letter informing him of her plans.

    The Benzes hit the road— which in many places turned out to be rocky, dusty and unpaved—with Bertha acting as both driver and automobile mechanic along the way. When she ran low on fuel, she sought out a local pharmacy that sold ligroin, the petroleum solvent used to run Karl Benz’s cars. She made an emergency repair to the car’s ignition with her garter. When the fuel line became clogged part of the way through their journey, Bertha was able to clear it using nothing more than her hairpin. Bertha is even credited with devising the world’s first pair of brake pads: when the car’s worn-down, wooden brakes began to fail, she asked a local shoemaker to install leather soles instead."

    Don't forget we have the sun and plenty of sunshine in Singapore.

    No activity needs to happen after dark except prayers.

    Fire occurs in nature (as in Indonesia). So I am not sure about counting it as an "invention" of mankind - the "taming" of fire is another matter.

    Yeah. Without electricity and lightbulb invention, we have no smartphone, tablets, PCs, and still writing on paper or papryus and asking pigeons to fly across carrying the messages
