Inventions arise in many ways and as Plato suggested, usually out of necessity. Inventions come about in response to a problem or following the identification of a need, want or opportunity. Inventive or innovative processes involve creative thinking and problem solving skills that may lead to the design and development of new products or modification of existing products. Some are planned through research and investigation while others happen by chance.For a country with a relatively small population, Australians have generated an amazing number of awesome inventions and innovations which have improved lives and made jobs simpler and quicker all around the world.
