Because it was so affordable, almost anyone could own a vehicle. o The Assembly Line: Henry Ford also created the assembly line, this made it possible for him to hire uneducated workers for jobs. Because of this, not everyone had to know all the parts and how they all fit together.

This camera was only $1.00 each and film was only 15 cents. To develop, all a person had to do was send the camera to the company an they would develop, fill your camera with film, and send your camera and your pictures back to you. With the invention of this simple, hand-held camera anyone, anywhere, at any time could take a picture.

9 Inventions con’t. The First Electric Vacuum Cleaner: Invented in 1907 by James Murray Spangler, was a fan motor attached to a soap box that was stapled to a broom handle. Later he improved his basic design by adding a cloth filter bag and cleaning attachments. He started Electric Sweeper Suction Company in This all started because he complained that the carpet sweeper he used was the cause of his cough. Now with this invention, people can reduce their risk of allergy.

15 Inventions con’t. Cellophane: Cellophane was invented by Jacques E. Brandenberger in 1908 designed for a clear, protective, packaging layer. Like many experiments, the original use was discarded, but he noticed that the strong thin layers of plastic like material were good for other uses. In 1917 he patented this material for use in gas masks and other various uses. Cellophane: Cellophane was invented by Jacques E.
