Swedish inventions make the world admire

Swedish inventions make the world admire

Swedish inventions can surprise everyone as how many everyday items you use come from this country. There will be great inventions like making explosives and pacemakers, but Sweden really shines in making the things we use better every day.

GPS

Recall the days when we had to turn through small and large paper maps and follow them to find our way and you had to try to find out if you were on the right track.

Those days are sucked into the past when the Swedish invention was born that Hokan Lans's GPS system became the world standard for transportation and civil aviation - and the basis for the GPS we use on phone and everywhere else today.

 

The wrench adjusts itself

Johan Petter Johansson received more than 100 patents in his lifetime and one of them was for inventing an adjustable wrench, which saved workers and workers in trouble and cost of goods. days when carrying many wrenches of different sizes.

Also known as the "Swedish Key", Johansson signed a contract in 1891 to have the wrench distributed worldwide under the 'Bahco' brand, and today, more than 100 million wrenches have been sold. market.

 

Skype

Skype was founded in 2003 by Janus Friis, Danes and Niklas Zennstrom, Swedish. The company's Skype software was created by three Estonians, Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu and Jaan Tallinn. They also created Kazaa, a popular music sharing app. Skype hit the market in August 2003 and it became so popular that just two years later, in 2005, it had 74.4 million users. So it's not surprising that in 2005, eBay bought Skype for a whopping 2.6 billion dollars. And so in just two years, these five genius minds have clearly made a great business project. 
In May 2011, Skype was acquired by Microsoft for $ 8.5 billion with nearly 663 million users.

 

Carton box

It is called one of the greatest Swedish inventions of all time just as much as the Royal Swedish Academy of Science and Technology, and it's hard to imagine life without a carton.
Invented by Eric Wallenberg during World War II, he got an order to create a viable packaging for milk that could compete with glass bottles, cheap and using the least amount of ingredients available. can. After numerous lab failures, Wallenberg came up with the idea of ​​using a single sheet of paper rolled into a cylinder and folded from the sides, creating a mathematical tetrahedron. This invention was so successful, it became the cornerstone of one of Sweden's leading companies, and they still use the formula today.

 

Seatbelt

There are many car accidents that happen when parents do not wear seat belts for their children and for themselves. Then, Nils Bohlin invented the three-point seat belt for Volvo, helping the automaker to strengthen its reputation for safety and life saving around the world.
The Swedish invention has a unique design, running across the waist and over the shoulder like a 'Y' to help keep a vehicle rider safe in an accident, reducing overall impact. The most astonishing thing is that Volvo sold the invention to many other carmakers with the aim of putting the safety of the world before profit.

 

Zipper

The zipper as we know it today was developed by Swedish-born Gideon Sundbäck, who improved on his predecessor's zipper prototypes and developed the zipper that we use today. 
His redesign - known as 'detachable lanyard' was patented in 1917 and features interlocking teeth pulled out and separated by a slider. 

 

Flat screen

If it wasn't for Sven Thorbjorn Lagervall's discovery of electromechanical liquid crystals back in 1979, you wouldn't read these words on a flat screen. 
The invention of Sven Thorbjorn Lagervall led to the development of technology for flat screens, which entered mass production in 1994.

 

Phone

You may have heard of the giant Swedish telecoms company, but the thing you've certainly heard of most - and maybe even seen - is a phone created by Lars Magnus Ericsson in 1885. If go travel Sweden , you will find images of old phone will appear in stores selling antiques.
This Swedish invention revolutionized and ultimately all handsets are based on this design. We may not see this phone much anymore, but it's hard to imagine a world without this invention.

 

Celsius temperature scale

Degree Celsius (° C or Celsius) is a unit of temperature named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744). He was the first to propose a system for measuring the temperature based on the state of water with 100 degrees C (212 degrees Fahrenheit) boiling water and 0 degrees C (32 degrees Fahrenheit) as frozen ice at typical barometric pressure ( standard atmosphere) in 1742.
Two years later, scientist Carolus Linnaeus reversed that system and took 0 degrees as frozen ice and one hundred degrees boiling water. This system is known as the centigrade system, or centigrade, and this noun is in common use until now although since 1948 this system has officially honored Celsius by naming the scientist. he. Another reason Celsius is used instead of centigrade is that the term "percentile" is also used on continental Europe to measure a flat angle equal to tenths of a right angle. In Vietnam, degrees C is most commonly used.

Computer mouse

Håkan Lans again, a man with many, many patents. In addition to GPS, Lans invented the precursor to what would eventually become the standard computer mouse. 
In addition, he developed color computer graphics that are used in most computers today. The most "hardworking" man who invented Sweden. 

 

Coke bottle

Just over 100 years ago, one of the most iconic consumer designs of all time - the Coca-Cola bottle - was introduced to the world. Although easily among the most recognizable designs in the world, few people know that the particular coca bottle was designed by a Swede; Alexander Samuelsson.
The initial summary is' very different bottle design, you will recognize it by feeling in the dark, or lying broken on the ground.
