1. The Sewing Machine

When the inventor of the modern sewing machine, Elias Howe, came up with the idea for the sewing machine he couldn’t figure out how to get the needle to work!

He was having a dream that he was building a sewing machine for a king and had only 24 hours to complete the job. He couldn’t complete what was asked of him and was taken to be executed. He noticed that the warriors spears had holes in the top, and the idea then hit him!

2. The Periodic Table

We all know about and have used the periodic table at some stage in our lives, but how many people know that the idea was seen in a dream?!

Dmitry Mendeleyev, the inventor of the periodic table, had been working for almost two days straight when he finally decided to give up and take a nap! While he was dreaming Dmitry saw elements arranged in a certain way on a table, he quickly woke up from this dream and wrote down everything he remembered! This idea has shaped modern chemistry today!
