GREAT TURKISH INVENTIONS
As they lived ,human-being tried to change their life styles for a better condition. So they decided to create new things to simplify their lives in hard conditions.
When we looked at our history we found so many intelligently designed inventions by Turkish inventors
Generally they had inventions in Math,Science,Medical,Geography,Architecture,Physics,Astronomi,Zoology,Bothanics and many others.Here they are..
The First Flying Attempt
One of the biggest achievements of man ,is flying like a bird in the sky.
HEZARFEN AHMET CELEBIHezarfen Ahmed Celebi is the first Turkish Scientist who managed to fly. He lived in the 17thcentury, in the sultanate ofMurad IV.He was famous for his unlimited inteligent and imagination.He was commonly known as Hezar-fen , because his flight and his deep knowledge of science.Some people around him thought that he is a crazy man.
He made experiments and searches about different kinds of subjects in his house and created the basic shapes of todays air transportation devices. He prepared his wings, by examining the wings of birds.
One morning, in front of all the people in Istanbul, he jumped fromthe Galata Towerand by moving his wings, he passed through he Golden Horn and landed to Uskudar. Sultan Murad IV watched the event from Sinan Pasha Villa in Sarayburnu. At first he appreciated Ahmed Chelebi, but, later he became suspicious about his talents and knowledge.

Volitan TheVolitanis a sea-boat equipped withsolar cellpanels, which uses bothwindandsolar energy.
TheVolitanis a proposed design for a boat equipped withsolar cell pannels , which uses both windandsolar energy.
The design has been awarded first prize in the "The Best Nautical/Boat" and "The Best Transportation Vehicle of the Year" categories at the International Design Award, 2007.
In the design, Volitan is inspired from a flying fish.(an extinction fish)It uses sails,wind and solar power to get around, It stores energy in batteries.
The engine doesnt need any oil to start. It uses the energy stored n the batteres .
So t s a green technology ,and doesnt pollute the enviroment.It produces clean and cheap energy.
Volitan has been awarded first prize in the "The Best Nautical/Boat" and "The Best Transportation Vehicle of the Year" categories at the International Design Award, 2007,in New York.
