A Couple Of Inventions By Italians Of Note

Ever wonder what hydrofoils are?


Here you go:

The hydrofoil was invented by Enrico Forlanini. 

In 1877, he also invented a helicopter powered by a steam engine. 

While we're at it, Italians also had a hand in the development of the typewriter.

Pretty significant stuff.
