In 1871 Andrew Smith Hallidie received a for the basis of the cable car operating system. This invention would be the first major attempt at developing a machine that could replace horses as a mode of transportation. This system involved a continuously moving cable that the car could grip when it needed to stop and release when it started moving. His motivation for creating this system would come after watching horses struggle to drag cars up hilly San Francisco streets.

In 1887 Anna Connelly put in a for a fire escape. While this wouldn't be the first fire escape made or patented, it is the one that's influenced the ones we use today. Her idea was to attach small railed metal bridges with openings across the outside of adjacent city buildings for tenants to escape to another rooftop during a fire. The bridge's openings had bells used to warn and inform the tenants on the opposite side to open the door and allow the escaping tenants into the safe building.


With the days getting longer, it's time for some fun summer-themed history. The history of roller skate dates back to the early 1700s when people wanted to continue ice skating during the summer months. The solution was a wooden board with two large wheels attached to either side. It wouldn't be until 1863 that inventor James Plimpton revolutionized the roller skate by placing two parallel sets of wheels that worked on rubber springs to allow skates to maneuver in a curve rather than just straight. Something that the roller skate's predecessors could not accomplish. His invention would be the birth of the modern-day four-wheeled roller skate we see today.

GIF, short for Graphics Interchange Format, was created in 1987. Its purpose was to create a compressed format ideal for displaying color images and saving memory on computers when sending. With the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, GIF went from displaying images to looped animations that have become popular in today's online world. None of this would be possible without the developer Stephen Wilhite and his team at CompuServe almost 35 years ago.

The very first US was issued to Samuel Hopkins in July of 1790 for the process of making potash, an ingredient in fertilizer. While this was the first patent granted, the patent to be labeled number 1 came 9,957 patents later, a traction wheel for steam locomotives by John Ruggles, in 1836 when they implemented the numbering system we use today.

Spring is around the corner, so why not indulge in rollercoaster trivia?
In 1898 Edwin Prescott patented one of the first looping rollercoasters using an elliptical-shaped track that would be the basis for the modern rollercoasters we see today. Unfortunately, during its lifetime, the coaster made more money selling tickets to see riders frightened on the ride than it sold tickets to ride.

Here's a fun fact: Elizabeth Magie was the original creator of the concept for the Monopoly game. She created and filed a legal claim for her game named 'The Landlord's Game' in 1903 as a protest piece against the big monopolists of her time. This game held two sets of rules, the anti-capitalist version and monopolist version. Today we only see the monopolist version played.

The heart-shaped box of chocolates' original intention was to be a holder for candy and a box to store mementos once that candy was gone. Richard Cadbury, son of founder John Cadbury, created these beautifully designed boxes in 1861. These days we focus more on the chocolate inside like these heart-shaped Dove candies.,556.PN.%2526OS%3DPN/D650,556%2526RS%3DPN/D650,556
