Filipino Inventions And Discoveries That Shaped The World

New TechnologyOnce I was younger, I heard the moniker that Filipinos are the best imitators”. In other phrases, we copy what is the existing technique, model or strategy or even surpass them. The unfavourable notion is all around it or you can even benefit from it. But in the case of innovations and discoveries, should you copy the patented one, then it will be a transparent piracy when you don‘t have the correct permission to breed it. More so, in HubPages, it is going to be duplication or plagiarism.

I strongly disagree with this notion. There are numerous Filipino scientists and inventors who contributed to boost the residing situation of people around the world. We have been taught about their contributions and I’m proud to bare it here on HubPages.

Filipino scientists have a protracted checklist of achievements that may by no means be ignored by their countrymen. Although, most of them are working abroad for higher pays and scholarships, many Filipinos are still benefited by their discoveries.

First on my list is AGAPITO FLORES, the inventor of fluorescent lamp. He patented it but for the reason that authorities did not supported a lot of his endeavor, he sold it to France’s multi-national company, Normal Electric Company, which had the whole authority to benefit to his very shiny invention. (Better examine the Filipino Timeline at Amazon)

Throughout the World Battle II, the ingenuity of the Filipinos have been tested and one identify got here out from Samar. It was ARMANDO MALITE who invented the armalite. The US government bought the patent in order that they can reproduce the weapon massively. However till now, it is being disputed as a result of as ‘city legend’ because there are not any credible solutions posted on the Web. Yet, in our CAT (Citizen’s Military Coaching) in high school and CMT/ROTC (Citizen’s Military Training) in school, it was taught to us by our army officers for the two-yr military science. The arguments relating to the veracity of the subject will be learn in lots of links that floor within the internet.

After I studied within the native maritime faculty, one in every of our instructors shared his story about his cousin that when worked in NASA (Nationwide Aeronautics and Space Administration), America’s house company. His cousin was EDUARDO SAN JUAN , a mechanical engineer, who was one of the staff being credited for the design and development of Lunar Rover or Moon Buggy. That was 1969, when man first landed on the moon. Lately, it’s being disputed again as to where the credit score ought to go.

Ever heard of Karaoke Sing-Along System? Japan copied it from the unique patent registered by the Filipino inventor ROBERTO DEL ROSARIO. The dispute was delivered to greater court docket and the unique inventor received the case. Sarcastically, South Korea popularized it so much that they usually hold karaoke contests yearly. Back right here in the Philippines, karaoke items (with TELEVISION monitor, microphone and the karaoke gadget) have been often seen in posh restaurants and bars. During fiestas and birthdays or anniversaries within the countryside, it was being rented to brighten up the celebration. Filipinos like to sing that even on a regular basis, farmers often interact in karaoke.

Take for example the one who discovered Erythromycin, an antibiotic derived from the bacterium Streptomyces erythreus. ABELARDO AGUILAR, a famous Illonggo doctor/scientist in Iloilo discovered the strain of erythromycin in 1949 from the soil coming from his home province. He despatched it to Eli Lilli Co., his employer within the US in an effort to separate the pressure. They did it there, but the Philippine government never acquired any royalty or the one who discovered it, Dr. Aguilar himself.

Most(probably all?) of these are embellished or straight lies.

GORDON on June 18, 2015:

Agapito Flores is nt really talked about in Wikipedia’s account of the fluorescent lamp. Indeed he is not to be discovered anywhere within the English version of Wikipedia. Equally for Mr. Armalite.

single-chip graphical person interface accelerator shouldn’t be talked about.

nor is that of Jose Rodriguez’s seminal work on leprosy or

Francisco Quisumbing th inventor of quink ink which was in every schoolboy’s satchel. The inventor of Karaoke is mentioned however If belonged to a country that invented this I might preserve quiet about it. In actual fact it’s surprising that a rustic with a big population and a supposedly good training system has produced so little in the way of innovations.

nigel on April 21, 2015:

HINDE TOTOO yung kwento kay Agapito Flores at kay Armando Malite. KWENTONG BARBERO ang mga ito. COMPLETELY FAUX!!!


SIMPLY SUPPOSE. do you assume it’s potential that they’ve access to the supplies and resources to make such advanced inventions??? If their concept is certainly stolen, do you really think that it might nonetheless be named after them???


we must always easily recognize issues that has a ninety nine% probability of being faux. some research would care for the remaining 1%.

Ireno Alcala (writer) from Bicol, Philippines on March eleven, 2012:

@murphy dangilan: Tama ka kabayan. Pinapalipas ng mga nakaupo sa gobyerno ang kanilang termino, halos sa pamumulitika lang.

We simply wasted our votes for them.

@Monching: Ano bang nationality ang gusto mo? Saka bakit nagmumura ka? Wala ka bang tamang asal sa pagbigay ng komento sa isang artikulo? Irespeto mo ang mga taong nagbibigay karangalan sa atin. Alam mo bang sa atin talaga ang karaoke? Sana naman ay magsaliksik ka para malaman mo ang katotohanan. Hindi kailangan ang dada nang dada kung saan inaaglahi mo pa ang lahing pinagmulan mo.

(What nationality do you wish to? Then why are you swearing? Would not have the proper conduct in offering feedback on an article? Respect the dignity of the one who are giving us honor. Did you actually know who invented the karaoke? I wish you make an in depth research to search out the reality. No want for being a blabber as you are degrading your nationality. )

Monching on October 08, 2011:

Without the help of our government, increasingly inventions of Filipino scientists shall be adopted and patented by other nations who’re interested to make use of such inventions.
