Should Ladislao Jose Biro's invention of the ballpoint pen be given more credit?

  • Yes Ladislao Jose Biro's invention of the ballpoint pen be given more credit

    no invention is unworthy of recognition, just as the invention of Electricity was recognize so it necessary for others inventor's inventions should be recognized. Biro, also known as László József Bíró, was born on 29 September 1899 in Budapest in what was then Austria-Hungary.

    He was a sometime journalist, painter and inventor who was frustrated with fountain pens blotting and smudging. He got the idea on a visit to a newspaper printing press, which used quick-drying ink and a roller.

    "It got me thinking how this process could be simplified right down to the level of an ordinary pen," he later said. So he set about creating the biro, which would begin production in 1944 under the name "Eterpen" and retail for the equivalent of £33.

    Today would have been Biro's 117th birthday and Google is honouring the occasion with a Doodle.

  • Yes, because of its resulting efficiency, the invention of the ballpoint pen deserves more credit.

    Yes, Ladislao Jose Biro's invention of the ballpoint pen should be given more credit. The invention of the ballpoint pen led to increased efficiency when it came to writing. Previously, a writer's instrument of choice, the fountain pen, required more time and effort to use. Unlike the fountain pen, the ballpoint pen rarely leaked and did not require an ink well. Additionally, the ballpoint pen increased the effectiveness of communication in World War Two because it allowed pilots to write at high elevation. Because it is responsible for maximizing writing productivity , the ballpoint pen should be celebrated and cherished.

  • Yes, Ladislao Jose Biro's invention of the ballpoint pen should be given more credit.

    Yes, Ladislao Jose Biro's invention of the ballpoint pen should be given more credit because it revolutionized the way people wrote and communicated. Without the ballpoint pen, what would we have? Sure, computers are the easiest ways to type notes or a letter, but many people still use pen and paper.

  • A pen is just a pen

    Although Biro invented a new type of pen, humans had been using writing instruments for thousands of years before him. The ballpoint certainly made it easier to carry your writing utensil with you, but I don't see the ballpoint as one of the most important inventions in history. A celebration by Google Doodle seems about perfect for this guy.
