The software language that allowed for the creation of Web pages and the first browser was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee (born 1955).
The invention set the stage for a future in which nanoscale machines will increase computer speeds, perform intricate surgeries, and generate solar energy more efficiently. Synthetic Skin Since the early 1980s, burn victims have sung the praises of Gail K. That's when she invented a method of "tricking" cells into responding as if they were inside a human body.
As a result, growing tissue can be stretched, resulting in the secreting of proteins that make for stronger tissue.
Eventually, this discovery led to synthetic skin that temporarily covers burn wounds until the body is able to regenerate skin on its own.
Generations Y and Z may not quite see it this way yet, but Baby Boomers have made the Earth a better place to live, thanks to many ground-breaking inventions.
Those born between 19 has seen more meteoric changes than our parents could ever have conceived, even if flying cars aren't an automotive staple yet.
