The Alexander Technique - late C19th

Dynasphere Lightning Protection - 1985


A Tasmanian company, Global Lightning Technologies, developed the Dynasphere lightning terminal. The company exports its products to over 30 countries.

The Humidicrib - late 1930s


The Humidicrib is a lightweight, portable and inexpensive alternative to the iron lung made from plywood, and was invented and manufactured by Tasmanian brothers Edward and Don Both in the late 1930s.

The poliomyelitis epidemic (Polio) was rampant at the time, and the invention soon spread across the world and has since helped to save the lives of millions of premature babies.

The Notepad - 1902


The humble though indispensable notepad was created by Launceston resident J.A.Birchall in 1902 when he had the idea of gluing individual sheets of paper together into the conveniently usable form we now take for granted today.

Imagine the messes our desks would be without it.
