Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. L szl J zsef B r was the inventor of the modern ballpoint pen. B r was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1899. He presented the first production of the ball pen at the Budapest International Fair in 1931.

Working with his brother Georg, a chemist, he developed a new tip consisting of a ball that was free to turn in a socket, and as it turned it would pick up ink from a cartridge and then roll to deposit it on the paper. B r patented the invention in Paris in 1938. In 1943 the brothers moved to Argentina and on 10 June filed another patent, and formed Biro Pens of Argentinashow more
