We have today come up with some of the best Chinese products which they invented. These are the Top 10 things which China invented first and believe me we are not aware of these simple things but the amazing Chinese scholars are developers were the first to made all these things the very first time in history.
10. The compass
The compass which was first made by Chinese in Han Dynasty was not used for the purpose of navigation but they used it to predict the future. They used to heat that metallic object in water to get the required magnetic force of attraction or repulsion. But with the passage of time, the people of China discovered that the compass can also be used for navigation so they started it for that too in 1119. Thus this useful compass which now only used for household use but also plays an important role in navigation systems of ships and aircraft was the invention of Chinese.
9. Coffins and urns
The Chinese were the first one to start the concepts of Coffins and Urns. It seems that they took great interest in burying their dead and then to take care of their bodies properly so they used to take special measures to preserve the body. The old Chinese saw that the look and thickness of the coffin made it sure that the dead person is that much noble. As mentioned earlier they designed coffins with great love so there coffins used to be really an art work.
8. Chopsticks and forks
The forks and Chopsticks mostly used in Asian countries and also in European countries too are also considered to be one of the best Inventions of China. Firstly they were made of bones and they were the symbol of the upper class of Chinese people but soon they got so much popular. Also the chopsticks were a good discovery by Chinese people because there traditional eating habits required the use of chopsticks which was used to be chopped in small pieces.
7. Paper Money
Money was the main trading way of the ancient people of China. The act of using paper money started in about 7th Century and it was the best thing merchants liked about them because they now not need to carry those heavy weights of money coins all their way and trade became the easy way. In start they looked like deposit slips and were the asset of wealthy and rich people only but the actual currency soon evolved and in 11th century the official Chinese currency came in to being.
Chinese are really hardworking and they loved to put their words in paper form so the first idea of printing also comes from Chinese people, that is the reason that Chinese are said to be the inventors of movable printing techniques. This printing tech was very good experience for them and they were easily able to carve their printings on the wooden blocks with the help of these printers.
The most important of all the Paper was also was first invented by China. The process of making paper was started around 2nd B.C. The Chinese people used to process the tree bark, linen and water in such a way that they got a pulpy thing out of it. They put it out to get dried and came into the shape of a paper. It is also considered to be the best invention of Chinese as paper is now the major source of all our needs. Moreover it is rather cheap and fast to get prints too on paper.
Gunpowder is another invention Chinese did first and it was just by an incident that they got the formula to make gunpowder. After they got the gunpowder they used to make fireworks which they believe is helpful in casting evils out especially on the New Year. Later on gunpowder started used as explosive material used for destruction. Now we see that gunpowder is able to explode and make huge explosions.
3. Chinese Medicine
The Chinese are also popular for making effective medicines by herbs. They truly believed that a healthy diet will make them feel good and that to avoid medicine as much as one could. Chinese always focused on proper eating and getting healthy diets thus to enjoy the health the better way. It is amazing to note that Chinese hired dietary experts who created that awareness in the people. They also used hormonal treatments from the urine of the person. They were then used to help cure sex issues regarding people caused due to hormonal imbalances.
2. The Restaurant Menu
Paper was indeed the first and the most wonderful inventions Chinese did developed forst and this was the strongest point for the Chinese. The people of china love to eat a lot and they were also the first one to start and initiate the restaurant culture and ultimately they also started out the restaurant menus in order to make it easy for the people to select their dish of choice. This was the first trial made by Chinese and it was really a great success. From now on those menus in Restaurants have become the main perspective.
1. Toilet Paper
Toilet Paper is something none of us will ever consider or give that much importance and would take them pretty normal in toilets but the origin of this toilet paper was China. It was started in 589 B.C. The Chinese were the first to use this toilet paper while the most of the world used sponges, lace, wood or water to wipe themselves. The things started getting better and then the toilet paper started coming in different flavors. The Royals were the first to use scented toilet papers for their daily washroom needs.
