First email
Some very useful inventions were created in the 1970's. We frequently still use some of them today. This encludes e-mail. E-mail was invented in 1971 by a man named Ray Tomlinson. E-mail made life eaiser because you could now communicate with people from around the world for free.The floppy disk was also an invention of the 70's. It was invented in 1971 by Alan Shugart. The floppy disk was a great invention because it stores data on the computer. The barcode was invented in 1974. The barcode is a useful invention because it could tell the price of something just by scanning it. The first bar code was installed at Marsh's supermarket Troy,Ohio. A Wirgley's pack of gum was the first item to have a bar code. The laser printer was an invention in 1975. It makes life eaiser because you could now print pages you wanted to keep. In 1977, Raymond Damadian invented the MRI scanner. Now, you could look inside the human body in a safe and painless fashion. The first human study using MRI happened July 3, 1977.
In the 1970's the toys invented were the Nerf ball, Rubik's Cube, Stretch Armstrong, Weebles, and video games.

I also remember that the urethane wheels for skate boards came out then, which changed the whole skate board scene!

I don't know when electronic ignition was invented but it was a standard part by 1973 and in my opinion one of the greatest advancements in auto technology - because breaker point ignitions systems SUCKED!!!!

I also remember being able to buy muscle cars for less than 1K - everyone had them!! Now a restored muscle car will run you 30K or much more depending on where and what you buy!
