82% of Americans say that they never leave home without their cellphones. 42% say that can’t live without them.
According to the Science Museum in London, that may seem true but it’s not. The cellphone hasn’t changed your life nearly as much as many mundane items you don’t even think about.
The ingenuity of a group of seemingly run-of-the-mill objects that we encounter everyday is highlighted in a new exhibition at the Science Museum.
Hidden Heroes â€“ The Genius of Everyday Things examines the inspiration involved in items whose design and purpose are so well matched that they remain uncelebrated, but heavily used, in the fabric of our lives. The exhibition runs from through 5 June 2012.
Here’s their list:
The featured inventions are presented along-side original sketches and drawings by their inventors – illustrating the process from idea to final object. Patent specifications and original advertisements reveal the efforts made to establish each product. The exhibition also reflects the ways in which these objects continue to provide inspiration to others.
