The Synchronopedia of
"Firsts" in Science & Technology
is a wall chart that chronicles the development of inventions and
discoveries from 1000 BC to the present. Over 2,500 historical "firsts" in
15 major science
and technology categories of are shown within the context of well-known or well-studied topics
such as famous people, major conflicts and major world events.
For example, developments in
science and technology didn't stand still while Napoleon of France was
conquering Europe at the turn of the 19th century. In fact, some
extraordinary events took place during this time.
Mary Wollstonecraft published her
influential book, Vindication of the Rights of Women, in 1792. The
Rosetta Stone was discovered in Egypt in 1799. Dr. Edward Jenner discovered
the wonder of vaccinations in1796. About half of the elements of the total
Periodic Table of Elements were discovered during this relatively short
period of time. Alessandro Volta built the first electric battery. Brandy
(the drink) was first distilled from wine during this period. Enamelled
saucepans were invented. Playgrounds began to appear throughout
Europe. Jacquard's automated weaving loom forever changed the face of
technology in 1801.

High Price Difference
The price between a standard
size and the mural size wall chart is on an order of a 10:1 difference. The
large format price is truly a reflection of the cost to manufacture. It is not
an exaggerated license fee.
A mural-size wall chart is
printed individually on a large-format, high-resolution inkjet printer. It takes
about an hour to output one and it is done by a outside vendor. It then has to
be delivered to a different company for lamination.
The standard-size wall
charts are manufactured in quantity at one time on an offset litho press.
Several thousand can be printed in less than an hour. 40" x 28" is also a
standard movie-size poster and there are enough presses around to drive
competitive pricing. The largest format poster commercially available without
"tiling" portions together is a 60" press but there are only a couple of vendors
that can do this work so pricing is not nearly as competitive.
We believe the size of our
standard wall charts represents the best balance of economies of scale and
