During the Twentieth century there were many countries that stood out in their technological improvement but no one stood out as much as Canada. Canada played a big part in creating some great inventions. A lot of these inventions helped change the world. Some of these inventions include the Snowmobile, Walkie Talkie and the BlackBerry. Canada helped many people around the world with their large improvement in many sectors especially in technology and inventions.
The snowmobile was created by Joseph-Armand Bombardier in1922. Bombardier was born in a small town in southern Quebec named Valcourt (Murphy). What started off as a small project the snow mobile has now become one of the most famous inventions in the world. In 2012 the snowmobile business was at a very high in the United States and Canada. In the US the business was worth about $22 billion and in Canada it was about $6 billion (5 Fun Facts About Snowmobiling ). Currently there are 1.4 million snowmobiles alone in the United States another 590,677 more in Canada and not only that but in 2013 alone around 144,601 snowmobiles were sold around the world (Facts and Statistics about Snowmobiling - ISMA (International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association)-Information for snowmobilers: snowmobiling trails and safety; facts and trends). The snowmobiling business is at an all time high. This shows how great of an invention it was for the world as it brings in a lot of money worldwide and the vehicle is very popular around the world as well.
In 1937, Canadian inventor Donald L. Hings created literally a big thing in size and value wise. He called it a two-way field radio but it is now known as the Walkie Talkie. The Walkie Talkie when first created was the size of a back pack and it was not famous until WorldWar2 when many countries started to use it to warn others of crises (10 Canadian Inventors Who Changed the World; Walkie Talkie ). Therefore it became a big part of WWII. The Walkie Talkie has now been changed and made much smaller but it still has the same concept. Nowadays portable Walkie Talkies are really relied around the world by firefighters, police officers, security personal etc. (10 Canadian Inventors Who Changed the World). The Walkie Talkie is another big invention which changed the world back then, still to this date and probably in the future as well.
In 1984, Canadian businessman Mike Lazaridis created a phone company which changed the way we thought about phones big time. This company is still famous right now. This company is BlackBerry (BlackBerry timeline: A look back at the tech company’s history)....
