    The time between the wars – the Great War and WW2 was one of great loss and uncertainty, but also one of invention, creativity and new ideas. The horrors of WWI shattered enlightenment belief that progress would continue and reason would prevail. New ideas and patterns of life developed in the 1920′s and in the way that people looked at the world [1].

    The fast pace of technology change in the 20′s brought us the lie detector, traffic signal, bubble gum and Penicillin. An all-electronic moving-image television system somewhat similar to that used today was invented and demonstrated in 1929 [2].

    The 30′s were not less invention-intensive bringing us the jet engine, helicopter, tea bags, sticky tape, ballpoint pen and the first photocopier [3].

    However, somewhere between these great world-changing inventions there were some fun and sometimes even hilarious inventions the world has forgotten. BoredPanda proudly presents these Cool Inventions From the Past – enjoy, comment and don’t forget to subscribe!

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    That's the origin of the car stereo.
