Blind Orion HEADER

Giants Causeway

Welcome to Smart-e’s newest social media series!

Every month we will be showcasing #OnTheShouldersOfGiants, our attempt to remember those inventors, engineers and scientists who have contributed to making out work in the 21st century possible.

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, and while many of those featured here have seemingly little in common with the modern AV industry, all have contributed to the ascent of scientific knowledge and ability that is the lifeblood of our trade.

Many of those who we now see as giants in their field have also recognised their debt to those who came before them, realising that success and invention in science does not wholly come from individual enterprise. They understood that the roots of new discoveries can often be seen far back in history, as an unbroken line of knowledge stretching from the ancient world to the present day.

So please join us next week as we unveil the first name, a man perhaps best known for his invention of the electric motor.

 

‘If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants’ – Isaac Newton (1643-1727)
