There are so many inventions that have changed the world. Some of them are:
It is a diagnostic tool that is used for identifying the symptomatic odor caused by cancer. It can take smell to identify disease. Professor Hossam Haick is the chief scientist of the project NaNose that is developing this medical tool. It can identify the disease with an accuracy up to 86-92%. But the authority has declared that within 5-6 years it will be more accurate and more user friendly.
Pillcam is a swallowable medical camera.
Once an Israeli scientist named Gavriel Iddan had chronic pain in his stomach and with this practical experience, he designed this PillCam, and later the FDA approved this. This a pill that is digestible and can send a picture of the inner side of the stomach. So that is so easy to detect cancer or any other disease without any outsider test. The scientist won the European Inventor Award for this fantastic invention.
Disk on Key (USB Drive)
Universal Serial Bus or in the short USB is the invention of an Israeli company. In 1980 this superb invention was invented in Israel.
Desert climate is not suitable for producing good crops. So the farmers of Israel had to struggle to produce crops amid the desert climate.
In the meantime, Simcha Blass, an Israeli scientist observed two adjacent trees. One was large enough and another was tiny. But the scientist observed also that there was a water pipeline next to the bigger tree, though the water flow was so little, he could realize that only a little amount of the water supply can make a huge difference.
At last, he designed a water pipeline that can drip water onto the crops. Later using this technology about 70% of the Arava desert was turned into a crop field.
