It doesn't matter so much when something is invented - as to when it is made practical, economically feasible and adopted by a significant amount of people.

Blockchain tech (digitized ledgers and means of exchange), 3d printers and portable finger touchscreen tech/ergonomics all new inventions in just the past decade starting with iphone in 2007.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53927732


In the past 2-3 decades i'll also add advances in computer graphics tech making it possible to play 3d games. This is the first artist visual representation of our reality we have created as humans and the implications are already huge - look at how much time our youth especially males sink into video games. This will undoubtedly have huge effects on humanity going forward... and it was only invented some 25 years ago.

Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
I invented a wheel that is an engine that is gravity powered.

The patent lawyer advised me to hide it away because the laws have been tailored to Companies now.

There is no protection against inventors anymore. The patent system went to hell when they changed from first to invent to first to file. They don't give patents to the inventor anymore. They give patents to companies and patent trolls.

The system has stifled advancement in favor of big business.

Have humans now learned everything and stopped advancing?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75373018


They steal your ideas. I passed on many ideas but never got even lunch for it. I got smarter & would leave the key information out. Guess what, they couldn't figure it out.
All the ideas that I passed on, I saw it in different shape & forms. Complaints doesn't make any difference.

So why should I pass on major break through. Remember, people that are detail oriented, are the one's that can generate ideas. The Industry can brain storm as much as they want, people are not stupid.
 Quoting: Smith Mason 69473501


They stole from Tesla constantly but he just kept inventing.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48730088


Yep. Westinghouse stole BILLIONS in royalties from Tesla. And he was one of Teslas "partners."

The guy who invented the SuperSoaker (Lonnie Johnson)

.. has invented a really interesting solid-state thermoelectric engine,
with theoretically double the energy efficiency of modern PV (solar) cells.

Johnson thermoelectric energy converter
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]
[link to johnsonems.com]

The way it works is brilliant; I've never heard of anything like it.

Basically, it works by heat-induced compression/expansion of hydrogen gas through a proton exchange membrane (PEM), which ionizes the gas (i.e. strips electrons), inducing a current through electrodes attached to the membrane.

It operates as a closed system with no moving classical mechanical parts, requires no input of fuel, and creates no exhaust.
 Quoting: wiki


It's so elegant, you'd think someone would have thought of it before. But it's completely original, and predicts up to 60% energy conversion efficiency, compared to 5% efficient Peltier cells, or <30% efficient solar arrays.

There are new inventions and ideas. They don't always get sufficient funding or attention, idk why.

Maybe pressure from the status-quo of existing industry cash cows.

I dont consider self driving cars or new models of CPUs or phones as new inventions as they are just modifications of existing products.

Same A/C power since Tesla invented it. Same wireless since Tesla. Same cars since Ford. Same airplanes. Same CPUs. Same transistors. Same rocket engines. Same robots. etc, etc, etc,

Yes, they all have gotten more perfected over time but nothing is new.

You are "reaching" but I would consider a "new" car as using a new power source. A "new" spaceship as using anti gravity.

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure; one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." - David Rockefeller

"The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries... We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order." - David Rockefeller

Read the thread, Op acknowledges that. However, we have seen a very long gap (relatively speaking) in anything really new. That is concerning since many of the inventions that we use today started out a century ago or earlier.
