Some of the University rooted innovations of today are:

 

Fluoride toothpaste:
Fluoride toothpaste wasn’t invented at a University, but it was perfected there. While fluoride had been an ingredient in toothpaste since 1890, it was not until Dr. Joseph Muhler at Indiana University headed up a Procter & Gamble project that the FDA-approved version we know today was concocted.

Spreadsheet:
We admit that the spreadsheet is a pretty essential part of everyday business. It was Professor Dan Bricklin at Harvard Business School that first came up with the idea and working with MIT alum Bob Frankston developed the first spreadsheet on a rented MIT computer.

Google:
Can you imagine your life before Google? Google was an innovation born out of the research from two students at Stanford, Sergei Brin and Larry Page, who conducted while working on their Ph.Ds. The research was so successful that the two put their education on hold to start a business. The rest is history.

Web browsers:
One of the earliest Web browsers, Mosaic, allowed for the web to be more easily used and was one of the first graphical browsers. The technology developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign would later evolve into the popular browsers which we are familiar today.

Plasma screens:
The technology that runs many flat screen TVs today was innovated by a team of University researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign: Donald Bitzer, H. Gene Slottow, and a graduate student Robert Willson.

WLAN:
Wireless local area networks, more commonly known as WLANs, were the product of research done at the University of Hawaii under the leadership of Norman Abramson during the early 1970s.

Androids:
The first android, DER 01, was the product of The Intelligent Robotics Lab at Osaka University, as well as the more well-known robot called the Actroid.

ADOBE Flash:
Multimedia platform Flash was invented in 1996 by Jonathan Gay while he was a student at Harvey Mudd College in California.

INSULIN as treatment for diabetes patient:
Many diabetics live healthy lives today and all thanks to the early work of Frederick Banting and Chas Best. The duo figured out that insulin could be extracted from pancreas samples and injected into patients as a diabetes treatment. The work at the University of Toronto won them the Nobel Prize in 1922.
