Accidental discovery technology

People can plan but God disposes. Thus we often hear the saying, which shows that human planning could be different with God's plan so often happens the results are not in accordance with our will.
But these discoveries, happened by accident and not an actual goal of the inventor. A "Blessing in Disguise" or the grace of God is hidden within an unwanted incident, that's roughly the right expression for useful inventions, which until today we still feel the benefits.
A lesson for us that the bad things in our lives and not expected does not always bring ugliness, but often provide good so long as we stay positive thinking and observant look at other opportunities behind a disaster. Because we never know how "the hands of" God's work helps us.  

1. Penicillin
You may already be familiar with Alexander Fleming, Scottish scientist who conducted research on the attenuated bacteria, called staphylococci or Staphylococcus. The actual incident was when he returned from vacation in 1928, he found one of his experiments had been grown cup of mushrooms, so that pissed him off and threw it. At that time he had not realized that later Staphylococcus bacteria are not able to live in a neighborhood infested fungal mushrooms.
After Fleming examined again and found that fungi can inhibit bacterial growth, he then published his findings but did not receive much attention. Later in the year 1945 after the further research conducted by several other scientists, it is believed that the new penicillin could be produced on an industrial scale, so this will provide a way for the treatment of bacterial infection or inflammation to the present.

2. Microwave Oven
In 1945 Percy Lebaron Spencer, an engineer and creator of America, busy working at the factory magnetron, a tool used to generate microwave radio signals, which is an early form of radar. Radar is an incredibly important innovation during the war, but the use of microwaves to cook food is by accident.

As I was standing near a magnetron which is life, Spencer found that chocolate bars in his pocket melted. His mind was sharp immediately understood that it was caused by microwaves. Then she tried it on popcorn seed and the egg to explode. The first microwave oven weighed about 340 kg with the size of a refrigerator.

3. Ice cream cone
This story is a perfect example of the invention is not intentional, and a rare chance meeting that gave effect to the whole world. And is a nice meeting.
In early 1904, the ice cream served on a plate. Until some time in the World's Fair that year, in Saint Louis, Missouri, two ingredients that seem unrelated to the inevitable connected together.
 Three hundred years later, Charles Goodyear established the company and strive to make useful materials. Previously, he spent seven years, he tried to cultivate rubber material with magnesium oxide, bronze powder, nitric acid and lime adhesive, but still no luck.
Then, on an auspicious day in the year 1839, he cleaned his hands from the spread of powder, which consists of a mixture of rubber and sulfur. And the powder fell into a furnace on fire.
When the rubber to melt, it reacts with sulfur material. This is the first time vulcanized rubber or rubber tires are created, and until now you can sleep soundly in a car because of this accident. 12. X-ray machine
In 1895, German physicist, Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen, is trying to find a way to be able to view cathode ray tube glass out of a completely enclosed by a black cardboard. He realized it was impossible but he found something more interesting about it.
He tried to put various objects in front of the device, but the surprise was that he saw the bones in his own hands, then, the results were projected onto a wall. Chest X-ray aware that it can penetrate solid objects as well.
Immediately, he called yahg rays can penetrate it with the name of x-ray or we know also by X-ray - as the name suggests. Today, these tools have become standard equipment in health hospitals.
