1001 Inventions and The Library of Secrets






I came across these helping my son with his home work, they are really nice, the short movie is well worth the watch.

With all this negative attitude towards Islam, its quite amazing to learn that, we owe much to the innovation created by the muslim innovators, there ideas and early prototypes was the basis of today's comforts, the clock, the crank shaft, surgical instruments, flight, the camera...

I really liked the Elephant Clock which was a Clock symbolizing the timeless principals of Islam representing tolerance, incorporating elements of India, Greece, Egypt & China...very ingenious....runs just on water & gravity...
