We Don’t Know Inventions From Our Hood

This week, we take a look at some of the lesser-known inventions from here in Silicon Valley from frozen breakfast and food in a cup to big hunks of steel and animatronic rats.

Who knew that so many of the things we refer to or use daily were created practically in our own backyard?! Silicon Valley has a rich history of technology and innovation, but beyond the Apples, Googles and Facebooks, some really interesting stories have become lost in the noise. We had fun this week learning about some really cool things that were created right here in our city of San Jose.

Here’s the documentary we mentioned this week called The Legacy of Arrow Development by Kris Rowberry
