40 life-changing objects that were all invented by accident

We use so many things in our day-to-day life that we have never really pondered upon how those things came into existence in the first place. You just tied a shoe with Velcro. But how did it come about? The beer that you had with dinner last night? How about that?

Turns out, the saying, ‘necessity is the mother of all invention’ is not always the case. A lot of things that have come into existence have been invented as nothing more than an accident. There is a very thin line between an invention and an accidental failure.

Let us tell you about the most famous inventions of all time that were all an accident and completely unintentional. But had they not been invented, we would have surely missed a lot of things and the world would have been a very different place.
