Post an invention made by accident.

A Slinky!
In 1943, Navy engineer Richard James was trying to figure out how to use springs to keep the sensitive instruments aboard ships from rocking themselves to death, when he knocked one of his prototypes over. Instead of crashing to the floor, it gracefully sprang downward, and then righted itself. So pointless—so nimble—so slinky. The spring became a goofy toy of many childhoods—that is before every kid inevitably gets theirs all twisted up and ruins it. 300 million sold worldwide!

It's called a cup warmer. There are plenty of models to choose from. Some even plug into USB. It is identical to a candle warmer.

Ivory soap that floats. The guy operating the machinery screwed up and whipped it too fast or something. The soap floated, people called in, liking it. He got fired, and Ivory kept making their soap like that ever since. Happened in 1863.

Penicillin, according to ABC News, is one of the top 10 health advancements to have changed the world, and ironically enough, it was discovered accidentally. In 1928, Scottish bacteriologist Sir Alexander Fleming left a petri dish filled with the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium uncovered for several days.

Aw hell I wanted to talk about it. Penicillin wasnt created it was discovered by Fleming when bacteria didnt develop near fungi.

My first job was with a company that made a card reader. It was quite a contraption, and it had a tendency to let the cards slip backwards, which was very annoying. So the technician bent a paper clip to stop reverse motion, expecting the engineers to cook up something a little more professional. Nope. They simply added the paper clip to the blueprints.

I remembered this from school: vulcanized rubber (if sulphur was removed from the raw rubber and the result was heated the rubber retained its elasticity). <- - - - I googled this to make sure I remembered it correctly (hehe)

Also, Post-It notes :)
