”The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...' - Isaac Asimov”

2-003 I have done it!

And so Dwaas’ life began! I  have been playing with the idea of displaying the birth of Dwaas for some time now and this is it! I’m happy to bring Dwaas himself -as keeper of this website- a little out of the shadows.


Impressive inventions

It’s not for everyone to be a genius like Dr. Fronkenbrick! To invent a ‘dwaas’ is a pretty big thing in my perception. I tried in my basement, but my wife put a stop to it when I almost burned the place down 😛 .

Everyone knows about the greatest inventions by brilliant inventors (at least in relation to their invention) that changed our lives profoundly; the wheel, nail, printing press, internal combustion engine, telephone, light bulb, penicillin, contraceptives and the Internet come to mind.

But besides the biggies, so to say, what is the one ‘smaller’ invention you are really impressed by? There are so many I can’t choose the best one of course, but one that I myself notice a lot is the walker (‘rollator’ in Dutch). It’s such a simple concept but it kept so many (elderly or specific disabled) people from the dreaded isolation. It also keeps a specific group of disabled persons out of a wheelchair. Simple but very effective. Other things that come to mind is the paperclip (that I use for many things besides its original use) or a clock. Also the many things around us of which I didn’t realize they have been invented at some point in time.

Do you have examples of basically simple, but ultimately very impressive inventions to you?
