Refrigerator Report Abuse
57 points - added 5 years ago by kris - 6 comments
Comments:
The American inventors Oliver Evans, Jacob Perkins, and John Gorrie (males, all) are credited with developing the earliest versions of the modern refrigerator in the early 1800s. Later that century, the work of German engineer Carl von Linden allowed chemical refrigerant to be stored efficiently, paving the way for mass production of refrigerators.

Florence (Parpart) Layman invented a ‘refrigerator attachment’ (patent 1090925) that improved a refrigerator’s cooling efficiency. She did not invent the refrigerator. She (along with her husband) invented and patented a rather common-sense improvement – where the melted, yet still cool, water is circulated through the fridge before it is drained. She also held patents and patent rights to other inventions/improvements.

The Bra Report Abuse

Comments:
True. The first modern brassiere to receive a patent was the one invented in 1913 by a New York socialite named Mary Phelps Jacob. Mary Phelps Jacob had just purchased a sheer evening gown for one of her social events. At that time, the only acceptable undergarment was a corset stiffened with whaleback bones. Mary found that the whalebones poked out visible around the plunging neckline and under the sheer fabric. Two silk handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon later, Mary had designed an alternative to the corset.

Bullet Proof Vests Report Abuse
Comes in handy for anyone planning to face off with a gun, for the countless lives this device has saved bullet proof vests had to rank high on the list.

"Bullet Proof Vests" were almost prefected with the invention of kevlar, but bullet proof vests of all sorts have been in use since the late 1600's. No actual "Inventor" can be credibly named, Male OR Female.

Stephanie Kwolek, along with other researchers at DuPont, invented and patented an improved process for making ‘Kevlar’ (patent 3063966) in 1962. Kevlar was the first material that made ‘bullet proof vests’ actually bullet proof in more than just name. Stephanie Kwolek’s can be said to have invented the bullet proof vest in general terms as her invention was the main breakthrough that allowed Kevlar to be mass produced economically. Before she came along, anything that would stop a bullet in ‘actual combat’ (not just lab tests) could not be comfortably worn by soldiers and/or was too expensive for practical use.

White Out Report Abuse
33 points - added 5 years ago by kris - 3 comments
Comments:
TRUE. In 1951, Bette Nesmith Graham invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. Working as a typist, she used to make many mistakes and always strived for a way to correct them. Starting on a basis of tempera paint she mixed with a common kitchen blender, she called the outcome fluid Mistake Out and started to provide her co-workers with small green bottles on which the brand's name was displayed. By 1956, Graham founded the Mistake Out Company and continued working from her kitchen nights and weekends to produce small batches of correction bottles. She was fired from her typist job after she made a mistake that she did not manage to correct. She had typed in her company name instead of the bank's. After this stroke of bad luck, she decided to devote her time to her new company.[1] The inventor offered the product to IBM, which declined the offer. She sold the product from her house for 17 years; the name was changed to Liquid Paper shortly after. By 1968, the product was profitable, and in 1979 the Liquid Paper Corporation was sold to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million with royalties. In 2000, Liquid Paper was acquired by Newell Rubbermaid. In some regions of the world, Liquid Paper is now endorsed by Papermate, a widely known writing instruments brand (also owned by Newell Rubbermaid). Graham's son Mike Nesmith, guitarist/singer in the popular 1960s pop band The Monkees, was the primary heir to her fortune upon Graham's death in 1980.

Windshield Wipers Report Abuse
Now these everyone can appreciate, driving in the rain is bad enough but I can’t imagine driving without windshield wipers.

Comments:
The inventor, Mary Anderson is credited with devising the first operational windshield wiper in 1903. In Anderson's patent, she called her invention a "window cleaning device" for electric cars and other vehicles. Operated via a lever from inside a vehicle, her version of windshield wipers closely resembles the windshield wiper found on many early car models. Anderson had a model of her design manufactured, then filed a patent (US 743,801) on June 18, 1903 that was issued to her by the US Patent Office on November 10, 1903.
