34 Oklahoma Inventions



37 The parking meter Carlton Cole "Carl" Magee was an American lawyer and publisher. He also patented the first parking meter. A local judge,, responded that Magee was a;lawyerpublisherparking meter judge –“lying, un-American political harlot, fatheaded imbecile remittance man, dirty cowardly reprobate, wicked, wanton, false, malicious, dishonest, corrupt, unscrupulous, and worse than the assassin of President McKinley.”


39 The shopping cart Sylvan Nathan Goldman (1898-1984) was an Oklahoma businessman and inventor of the first shopping cart. He introduced the device on June 4, 1937, in his Humpty Dumpty supermarket chain in Oklahoma City.18981984 shopping cartJune 4 1937 Oklahoma City Fred Young With the assistance of a mechanic named Fred Young, Goldman constructed the first shopping cart, basing his design on that of a wooden folding chair. They built it with a metal frame and added wheels and wire baskets. Arthur Kosted Another mechanic, Arthur Kosted, developed a method to mass produce the carts by inventing an assembly line capable of forming and welding the wire.


41 YIELD Sign The first yield sign was installed in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was invented by Tulsan Clinton Riggs, a Tulsa policeman. Clinton E. Riggs (1910–1997), a Tulsa Police Department officer, invented the first yield sign in 1950. It was installed at the intersection of 1 st and Columbia in Tulsa. The Tulsa Police Department's shoulder patch is patterned after this original yield sign. He retired from the department as Administrative Chief in 1970 after 36 years of service.Tulsa, Oklahoma Clinton Riggs19101997Tulsa Police Departmentyield sign


43 The flight suit Willey Post invented the modern day flight suit and autopilot. A flight suit is a full body garment, worn while flying a powered aircraft such as military airplanes and helicopters. These suits are generally made to keep the wearer warm, as well as being practical, and durable (including fire retardant). Its appearance is usually similar to a jumpsuit. A military flight suit may also show rank insignia.aircraftmilitarypractical durablefire retardantjumpsuitmilitaryrankinsignia


45 Wiley Hardeman Post (1898–1935) was the first pilot to fly solo around the world. Also known for his work in high altitude flying, Post helped develop one of the first pressure suits. Post was born in Van Zandt County, Texas, but his family moved to Oklahoma when he was five. His aviation career began at age 26 as a parachutist for a flying circus, Burrell Tibbs and His Texas Topnotch Fliers, and he became well known on the barnstorming circuit. On 1 October 1926, an oil field accident cost him his left eye, but he used the settlement money to buy his first aircraft. Around this time, he met fellow Oklahoman Will Rogers when he flew Rogers to a rodeo, and the two eventually became close friends.1 October1926


47 Autopilot Willey Post invented the modern day flight suit and Autopilot. In the early days of aviation, aircraft required the continuous attention of a pilot in order to fly safely. As aircraft range increased allowing flights of many hours, the constant attention led to serious fatigue. An autopilot is designed to perform some of the tasks of the pilot. The first aircraft autopilot was developed by Sperry Corporation in 1912.


49 Voice Mail Voicemail (or voice mail, voice-mail, vmail or VMS, sometimes called messagebank) is a centralized system of managing telephone messages for a large group of people. Gordon Matthews, a ruddy, tall man who was born in Tulsa and lived in Austin but worked mostly in Dallas, didn't want the voice mail to tick people off. But he will be blamed for it for many years to come, and he is very aware that this is his lot in life.telephone "I always say half the world hates me, and the other half loves me,'' Matthews says. “I invented the way for people to not talk to one another.” He invented voice mail in 1983. And if you've got something to say about it, and it's not nice, well, you can just leave your message in his voice mail box. Like email, this method of delivering voice messages can be subject to abuse such a spam or vishing. There are Federal and State laws and regulations designed curb these abuses, such as the United States Do Not Call Registry.

50 Gordon Matthews 1936-2002 Peter Yang /American-Statesman In voice mail, no one can

51 Automatic Marshal He also invented "Automatic Marshal,'' a device to track how long each player plays on the golf course and sets off an alarm when they dawdle!


53 Personal Computer A personal computer (PC) is a computer whose original sales price, size, and capabilities make it useful for individuals, intended to be operated directly by an end user, with no intervening computer operator. Today a PC may be a desktop computer, a laptop computer or a tablet computer.

55 Henry Edward Roberts (born 1942) was the founder and president of Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS) which built the Altair 8800, one of the very first hobbyist personal computers. He earned his bachelors degree in engineering at Oklahoma State University. As a teenager he created circuitry for analog and digital computers. In 1977, MITS was bought by Pertec Computer Corporation for upwards of $6 million, and Roberts entered medical school at Mercer University. He is now a country doctor in Cochran, Georgia.Altair 8800MITSPertec Computer Corporation

56 Alan Beaty invented the Trooper Trap which is a prisoner seatbelt alarm device that sounds an external vehicle alarm siren if the prisoner or detainee unbuckles the seatbelt to let the officer know the prisoner is escaping or no longer secure.

57 Bill Baker invented the Step Ladder that offers exceptional stability and ergonomic features

58 James Quintus invented the Garage Butler. This device can be automatically set to close the garage door in case the owner forgets to. Helps to prevent and stop burglaries and home invasions.

59 Bob Cook and Roy Blasius invented the Trailer/Vehicle Alignment System which will present the driver of a vehicle with a visual presentation of the position of the trailer hitch and an audible alarm to indicate the approach of the vehicle.

60 Carnell Duvall invented the Rollback Sidewinder It mounts onto the side of a rollback wrecker and is used to pull a vehicle along side of the wrecker. The wrecker is then pulled in front of the vehicle and the vehicle loaded, all without blocking traffic.

61 The Oklahoma Inventors Congress The Oklahoma Inventors Congress (OIC) is designed to bring together members of the inventive community and unite them in the common causes of: mutual assistance, problem sharing and solving; learning the invention process; the study of Patent Law and Patent Office requirements and procedures; assisting in prototyping, testing, and evaluating new and useful inventions; and promoting the creation, development, licensing, marketing, and commercialization of worthy inventions of the membership.

62 Hugh Wayman invented the Automatic Livestock Feeder. It is a solar powered livestock feeder that automatically disperses feed per user settings. Each feeder can care for up to 20 head of full grown livestock.

63 Gary Godwin invented the FunErgo computer stand. Named for functional and ergonomic, FunErgoTM enables people with chronic back pain, people recovering after surgery, home office user, or even for computer gamers to work at a computer without back pain or other health problems.
