Quiz: Can you match the inventor to their famous invention?

We live in a technological world, surrounded by things that would have seemed magical to previous generations – from our phones to our TV screens.

But who actually invented the stuff we take for granted today?

Most of us know that Alexander Graham Bell was something to do with telephones, and that we wouldn’t be getting on transatlantic flights without the Wright brothers.

But do you really know your inventors – and what they’re famous for?

Our 15-question quiz starts off very simply with some inventors who you may well be able to match to their inventions thanks to their names.

Stick with it, though, and you’ll be faced with some MUCH trickier conundrums, including some inventors whose names you might remember… but whose inventions are a little harder to work out.
