Innovation is everywhere – it always has been, ever since we first walked the Earth. From the small and seemingly insignificant to the most major inventions, they have all shaped our lives, even if we might not know it. So now it's time to celebrate them. In How It Works Book of Amazing Inventions, uncover the Roman innovations that are still with us today like the aqueduct as well as the terrifying medical tools that fell out of use (for good reason). Find out who invented the first ever computer, and explore the future of new technologies like virtual reality and artificial intelligence. Hop on the Space Shuttle, the vehicle that took humans into orbit, before we reveal how NASA has contributed to the everyday objects that you can find in your home. Finally, meet the geniuses behind innovations throughout history, from Leonardo da Vinci and Joseph Lister to Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Hedy Lamarr, as you discover the most amazing inventions. The journey starts just over the page.
