Over the last few centuries, there have been so many inventions that it's impossible to list them all down right here. From the first-ever telephone to today's smartphones, all these innovations and redesigns have helped shaped humanity. Even the fastest computer we have today as a result of the Abacus, a simple counting device. Let's step back into the past and retrace the steps to one of the most common household inventions of the modern era - the vacuum cleaner.
Suppose you have got to clean your whole home. It needs to look shiny and well-maintained. The dust is getting overwhelming but thanks goodness for the vacuum cleaner. Had you been existing decades before, your job would have been much more difficult.
The modern vacuum cleaner is originally credited to Daniel Hess, but this is not how and where it all began. Now let's go back into the extreme past and trace the humble origins - the broomstick. For removing dust, the oldest broom that has been traced by archaeologists dates back as far as 2,300 B.C. The brooms were worked on again and again, with every version being more advanced than its predecessors.
It wasn't long before people started desiring a less tedious way of cleaning their homes. Thus, the vacuum cleaner was born. There are almost 7 different types of vacuum cleaners, out of which the robotic vacuum cleaner is the most modern. So in fact, there are more men than Daniel Hess to be given credit for the various vacuum cleaners.
This infographic introduces us to the vacuum cleaner types, the men behind the thing, as well as the various designs it went through during different eras.
