Today, we are going to discuss the failures from the world’s famous inventors of all times.
So let’s have it in detail…..
The invention is the result of necessity, as there is summer going and the temperature is at its peak to get relief from it…..Air Conditioner was the invention, there was a mobility problem backdate then there comes the invention of vehicles, the invention of world wide web and that of Microsoft is also remarkable, when we do not do homework and the teacher ask for the reason on the spot, the excuse we make that will save us from scolding is also an invention too.
As we know the crude oil reserve at present will last long only up to 40 years, the alternative to that will also be an invention which is still yet to come.
Remember, the invention is the net result of a single attempt always thousands of failures are part of each invention made.
Today we will get to know the failures of the world most famous inventors but before going to that let’s have a look at the most popular inventors of all time:-

So now have some look at the failures of the world most famous inventors
1.) NIKOLA TESLA TRIED TO MAKE THOUGHT CAMERA
The inventor who is known for his invention of the induction motor and AC electricity once tried to make a thought camera which would allow one to project a mental image.

After that, he made strong cement houses but it prove to be too expensive, this made it unpopular.
Today, Albert Einstein is associated with intelligence as a synonym but it’s a proven fact that he could not speak fluently until the age of nine and his rebellious nature led to explosion from school.
But his invention of the light bulb cannot be denied.
4.) ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL’S FLYING MACHINE
As mentioned above one of the greatest inventors of all times Bell also made a flop invention initially and is that of his flying machine in 1903, he created the Cygnet – The Lightweight Airplane with a massive wing.
