Hi, James Watt, the eminent Scot and great scientist, who so improved the imperfect steam engine of his day that he may be termed the Father of the Steam Age and the Founder of Mechanical Engineering.James Watt's improvements transformed the Newcomen engine, which had hardly changed for fifty years, and initiated changes in generating and applying power, which transformed the world of work, and were a key innovation of the Industrial Revolution. The importance of the invention can hardly be overstated—it gave us the modern world.
Watt's improvements to the steam engine made it a practical source of power. The steam engine was used in factories and locomotives. It was the main power source before electric motors were used.
