Submission + - 10 Great Austalian Inventions that changed the World (

dryriver writes: The BBC reports on 10 key inventions that were conceived "Down Under" in Australia, and adopted for use across the World. The inventions, in the order they are presented in the article, are: 1) WiFi 2) Black Box Flight Recorders 3) Hills Clothes Hoists 4) Cochlear Implants 5) Dual-Flush Toilets 6) Mountbatten Brailers 7) Super Sopper Rollers 8) Ultrasound 9) Disposable Syringes 10) Polymer Banknotes. Many of us use these inventions, without having a clue that they were invented in Australia. Now we know where they originated. =)
