In 1793, a life changing machine was invented by a genius inventor by the name Eli Whitney. Eli wanted to build something that would pick the seeds out of cotton by itself because he noticed that the slaves near his homeland were having troubles picking the seeds out of the cotton. This determination lead to the invention of the cotton gin (a simple machine that quickly and efficiently removed seeds from cotton fiber). This invention was fairly very simple. You would start off by putting the cotton balls into the top part of the machine. After that, you would turn a handle that would comb through the balls with wire teeth. This step would comb out all the cotton seeds. The cotton was then pulled out from the machine and was all clean. The cotton
Karl Wiesenthal, a German inventor, devised the first sewing machine needle, but did not produce a complete machine. The sewing machine itself was first invented by Thomas Saint. Saint’s sewing machine could only sew a chain stitch, which is not beneficial for the clothing, because it can unravel.

The machine used an awl to make a hole in the material that was being sewn so a needle could pass through it.
Samuel Slater Samuel Slater was inventor he created the textile mill which changed the world in many positive ways.

Cotton gin The invention of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney in 1794 was one of the most effective and important inventions of the Industrial Revolution in the United States. The cotton gin is a machine that removes the seeds from cotton. Before the cotton gin was invented, cotton required manual labor to separate the seed. The invention led to much greater and faster productivity of cotton and also led Southerners to grow more cotton, so the economy of the South grew a lot.

Elizabeth Weil 's writes “The word explorer suggests a morally superior pioneer, a man or woman who braves the battle against nature to discover terrain implying a self indulgent adrenaline junkie who scares love
The first invention was to build a bridge to get across a river. The students were given an scenario and supplies, and they went to work. The students actually had to build a bridge out of simple classroom materials, and to test the build the teacher would stack as many rubber erasers as she can before before it collapsed. There were four experiments in total, the others included: waterproof capsule, catapult, and a boat. This was so much fun for the students.
Automobiles. Telephones. Lightbulbs. These were some of the major technological innovations created during 1865 to 1920. These creations impacted many Americans, even to this day.

A belt and pulley system then separated the lint from the seeds.
