In world history, everything once happened for the first time. We’re not just talking about inventing the computer but about the first selfie, the first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, and the first rights to drive a motorcycle for a woman. Someday our great-grandchildren will look at photos of the hadron collider or the first 3D printer and wonder how they were invented so long ago! In the last point, you’ll see the pearl of the collection!

GIGGAG collected 17 photos of famous firsts in history.

First Tesla, 2008

The Tesla Roadster, also named the Dark Star, is the first electric battery vehicle produced by Tesla Motors. Production stopped in 2012, but they’ve promised to restart the model by 2020.

This was the first painting of Vincent van Gogh in which he used a starry sky. This café really exists and is situated in Place du Forum in Arles, France.

First Cell Phone, 1973

This device weighed more than 1 kg, held a charge for only half an hour, and took 10 hours to charge. On the day that Martin Cooper invented the world’s first cell phone, he called a competitor company and told them that he was talking on his cell phone.

Selfies Were Invented Back In... 1839

When Robert Cornelius improved on the technology of Louis Daguerre he received this picture. That was not just the first selfie but also the first distinct human portrait in the world. Then, the first color photo was taken by James Maxwell in an experiment with tri-color technologies. That natural phenomenon was first recorded by William Jennings. His aim was to know if lightning really had a zig-zag form.

An interesting fact is that the first car designed by Henry Ford in his garage was called a Ford Quadricycle. It  moved on 4 bicycle tires and ran on gasoline. Thanks to this success, Henry Ford decided to create the Ford Motor Company in 1903

Sally Halterman, 1937

This is the first woman in Washington granted a license to drive a motorcycle. She was told that she was very young and then that she was quite young. But Sally passed the exams several times, fought for her rights, and finally got her license!

The Very First McDonald’s Restaurant, 1948

The first MacDonald restaurant opened in San Bernardino. At the beginning, Richard and Maurice McDonald sold barbecue food, but then reopened the restaurant selling hamburgers, potato chips and French fries, orange juice, and Coca-Cola. Now next to the restaurant you can see a museum and also a gift shop.


Cygan, the 2.5-meter robot with a control panel, was advertised to be a “universal robot”. It could be used for assistance in experiments with poisonous and explosive substances or a home helper.

The Very First Apple Computer, 1976

This is an image of the first Apple computer. It was developed by Steve Wozniak and presented to the public by Steve Jobs. The computer was bought by Paul Terrell. The next day, Jobs appeared barefoot in Terrell’s computer store called The Byte Shop. That was the first deal in the history of Apple.
