Sakichi Toyoda

Its in 1888 in rural Japan a young man watched his mother work weave cloth through out the day on a manual spinning loom, a tool thats used for centuries. it pained him to see her scrap a hard days work because of a single broken thread in the finished garment. The young man challenged himself to built a better loom by 1898 he built Japans steam powered loom resulting in quadruple productivity and half costs

The young man who did it is Sakichi Toyoda..founder of Toyota motors
