  1. In the second century A.D., a one-wheeled cart was invented by Jugo Liang, a general in the Chinese military. It was used as a mobile barricade against China’s enemies and for carrying heavy objects, although it was without handles in its first design. The Chinese were careful not to let other armies see the device, keeping the useful transportation mechanism secret for centuries.
