What do USB flash drives, the Waze global positioning system (GPS), Instant Messaging, the Pillcam endoscopy (tiny camera in a pill), and reverse osmosis desalination (to make ocean water drinkable) all have in common? They are all amazing Israeli innovations which have revolutionized their fields and changed our everyday lives forever.
Notwithstanding Israel’s small size and limited natural resources, its impact in agriculture, science, medicine, and space exploration has been enormous. Israel’s extraordinary creativity and know-how has resulted in countless inventions, discoveries, and advancements to help make people’s lives better and safer all over the world.
