The Greek engineer who invented the steam engine 2,000 years ago - Almost two millennia before the rest of humanity entered the industrial age, the Greek inventor Hero invented the steam engine, wind-powered machinery, and theories of light that couldn't be improved for centuries. And then he invented some really crazy stuff.

The water clock was invented in Ancient Egypt. It was used to tell time and to measure speeches in the courtroom. The inventor of the water clock was Ctesibius. He was a Greek inventor that lived in Alexandria, Egypt. Ctesibius just did not invent, it he also improved it by adding a float with a rack that turned a toothed wheel. He made the water clock make sounds like a whistling bird, bells, puppets, and other gadgets. Ctesibius lived and invented the water clock in the third century.

The hydraulis is the first clavier musical instrument in the world and a predecessor of the pipe organ. The Greek inventor Ktisivios created it in the 3rd century BC, in Alexandria. It consists of a set of pipes, with or without a reed. The player (pict. 12) supplies air to a selected pipe through the use of specific keys. The steady supply of air pressure is provided by a hydraulic system.
