The modern life jacket is generally credited to one Captain Ward, a Royal National Lifeboat Institution in 1854. According to research, life jacket has saved millions of life worldwide.

2.      Socks:

Sock can be seen as a leg protector or covering before shoes are worn. It first appeared in Egypt as far back the 3rd century. The strange gap between the toes of the ancient socks proves sandals were mostly worn during that era.

3.      TV Set:

Currently, televisions are the most popular thing you can find in almost every home in the world. The first mass production of televisions was set up in Germany in 1934 as it was mostly found in wooden box. Coming back to 2020, we have various types of TV set like LED, LCD and even smart Televisions.
