The Industrial Revolution
Our electronics started here, in this revolution. As mechanical energy was building, we had a great system that led to electrical power. What is the revolution? It’s the Industrial Revolution. Maybe you’ve heard of it before. It’s a really cool power system that led to the electronic build-up. Let’s see what it is.
Many things led to the revolution, but the most things that led to it were steam, power to do something by just a movement of the body, and buttons that when you press them they do something. The spinning-jenny and the flying shuttle were on of the first inventions in the Industrial Revolution. Mostly because of imports and exports, most countries at that time had a variety of material to use, especially England, who had lots of cloth.
In the early 19th century, the steamboat was created in the early 19th century, as it used steam as its main usage. Railroads were being built. In labor, less women died because of the health rising, which made it less risky to even be pregnant. Even the USA, who had the War of 1812, had some inventions, like the factories, and they produced steam as well as any power plant we see today. Farming tools were improving, and the new sewing machine makes fabric cost less, so, it was all a win-win.
In the next few decades, Thomas Edison created lights for NYC, Alexander Graham Bell made telephone lines so people could communicate across the state, and Samuel Morse made Morse code for communication for war-like reasons. Other countries had not industrialize, like China, Spain, and India, as they didn’t revolutionize till in the mid-19th century.
The Industrial Revolution was a great revolution, and if it weren’t for that, we wouldn’t have our everyday things, like cars, trucks, airplanes, electricity, and all those everyday things we use. What would we do without them? We wouldn’t imagine seeing that in the world.
Thanks to my aunt for the idea.
