What Do You Think Is the Best British Innovation From the Last 100 Years?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Britain is and always has been, a powerhouse of invention, innovation, science and technology. From penicillin, DNA, cloning and stem cells, to carbon fibre, radar, the jet engine, Concorde and the ARM chips that power your smartphone, Britain is behind it all in some sort of capacity. But what's the best British invention from the last 100 years?

That's exactly what the Great British Innovation poll is trying to find out, both from the last 100 years and in the future. My money's on Dolly the sheep, because I just know cloning is going to be useful at some point in the future. But for now, for the immediate use, I guess ARM has to take the crown for the most useful British innovation. [Great British Innovation]
