Top 10 Inventions That Killed Their Inventors

The very nature of invention means that inventors are continuously pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. 
This drive to discover the next Big Thing has been a boon to humanity and has given us inventions like the steam engine, the automobile and the personal computer. It's the major reason why we're still not huddled in caves fighting off wolves and cowering at the crack of thunder. Some invention had totally changed the lives of human beings and some pushed their inventor to death.
Here you will know:-
Ten inventions caused the death of their respective inventors. But fate did not give some time to reap the gains of their inventions and died at the hands of these  inventions.

This is an old story of a inventor who was deserve for its invention.
Perillos of Athens

Of all the inventors on this list, this guy may be the one who most deserved to die at the hand of his own invention. Perillos was a bronze worker who designed a device called the Brazen Bull to be used to painfully execute criminals. The Brazen Bull was a hollow bull. Prisoners were locked inside and roasted to death by a fire underneath. The device was even designed to channel the screams of the burning prisoner out of its nose to sound like a bull. Perillos pitched his invention to Phalaris, a tyrant lord of Acragas in Sicily. After Perillos showed Phalaris the bull, the inventor was put inside and a fire was lit underneath him. History isn't clear about if Perillos was pulled out before dying, only to be thrown off a cliff by Phalaris' men, or if he expired within the bull. Either way, the bull did him in.
