Accidental inventions that brought in the cash

Not all
inventions were made because it was inspired by a vision or an idea. Some
inventions were actually accidentally stumbled upon and are earning big bucks for their accidental inventors.


The Botox industry
is worth up to £18 million
or RM92 million a year and is one of the most popular treatments women seek. In fact, it is so popular that researchers
discovered that women are using so much of it that their bodies are starting to develop antibodies making the Botox treatment less effective.

Botox was discovered
by the Carruthers couple in 1987. Originally, small
doses of deadly toxins were used to treat ‘crossed eye’ eyelid spasms and eye-muscle
disorder. During the process, they discovered that it had an interesting
side-effect: wrinkles magically disappeared or became less obvious.


Ever heard of
laughing gas? Nitrous Oxide or more commonly known as laughing gas was formerly
used for parties since it induced good feelings and made everyone laugh – a lot.

Horace Wells, a
dentist brought it to a party and his friend who took too much of the gas,
gashed his leg but did not even notice it. That
was when Mr. Wells discovered the laughing gas might have some other use to it
and thus became an early form of anesthesia.

The anesthetic
industry is believed to be worth over USD23 billion and growing at 4% per year.
