What makes a truly world-changing invention?. Of all the inventions of the 20th century just one could be said to have changed the world in such a way that it touches virtually everybody on the planet’s lives on a daily basis. It has enabled the most rapid development in technology in history and yet you cant see the vast majority of them directly and their individual job is just to switch on and off. This is the story of the MOSFET and how it changed the world.

  1. Europe suffering from the chip shortage crisis while being almost the only place creating the machines to create chips. Maybe we should reconsider how globalized capitalism is arranging the world.

  2. If people found mosfets cool I think we need a video on ganfets! I think it could be a potential technology that increases the capabilities of transistor based things to improve drastically!!!

  3. yet another utube creator helping to spread the sponser virus thats flying though utube by advertising for these cheap ass companies who want free advertising.

  4. Thanks for this video. One feedback: please use the top of the screen for burned text, since being in the lower part mixes with the subtitles, making it harder to read 🙂

  5. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1956 was awarded jointly to William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain "for their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect."

  6. Billion, Trillion? That means little to nothing. Use scientific notation or metric prefixes so people can understand what you're saying. Know your audience. The intellectually disabled are not watching your youtube channel.

  7. There's just something so surreal about the fact that of all the billions upon billions of devices that use integrated circuits, they not only come from just a dozen or so foundries on Earth, but the machines those few foundries use only come from two or three companies.

  8. Thank you. I have personally felt that the Mosfet is the greatest human invention. Fusion, when somebody gets it to work, will push Mosfets of it's perch, as will Large scale in situ antimatter production.

  9. Interestingly enough, the start of the modern world began the same year as the world's most famous crash incident involving a plethora of evidence and eye-witness accounts to a cover-up of the recovery of extraterrestrial technology in Roswell. Whether this is a coincidence depends on whether or not you believe there are any coincidences at all.
