This is kind of a hard question for the sake of what quantifies an invention - can we say the internet without saying transistors?  Can we say satellites without the cold war drive for ICBMs which gave us the knowledge to create them?  I would also hesitate to use something like the wheel.  A wheel is one of the simple machines and really was not so much invented as discovered.  But if yes to the wheel, then why not the lever, or the wedge or the ramp?  Also antibodies were discovered and not invented (though I guess some have been genetically engineered.) 
Still with that in mind I would say 
 
1.  Agriculture 
2.  Political systems of democracy 
3.  The knowledge to purify water 
4.  The understanding of nutrition 
5.  Transportation networks (starting with sea lanes to air lanes now) 
6.  The telescope 
7.  The ability to travel through space 
8.  Language 
9.  Computers and the internet 
10.  Radios
