Pascal Invents First Hydraulic Press

Blaise Pascal, French scientist, mathematician and philosopher invents the first hydraulic press in 1647. The device consisted of a piston and cylinder filled with a liquid fluid. Pressing the piston produced a compressive force upon a stationary anvil. Modern versions of the hydraulic press are still in usage today as reinvented by Joseph Bramah, an English engineer in the 18th century. Pascal also invented the syringe.
