Inventions that Began on the Battlefield Thrive in the Home
There's a new product in development that could change your nightly ritual forever.
The Wrigley Gum Company has paired up with the U.S. military to create an anti-bacterial chewing gum that actually cleans teeth so soldiers wouldn't have to stop what they're doing to brush their pearly whites.
If the military signs on to it, there's a good chance it will end up in your medicine cabinet one day.
Other military inventions that we now use daily include:
-The steam engine
-The microwave oven
-Many hiking boots are made from the same materials. as the military's stealth jet technology.
-The Medevac helicopter
-The "trench coat" got its name from soldiers in World War I who wore the military jackets in the trenches.
-And of course, what one Pentagon officials dubbed the "Intergalactic Network." Which is what became the internet.
