TITLE: Writing Instrument
INVENTOR: Laszlo Biro
YEAR: 1945
PRINT#: B0636S

Biro's design consisted of a ball that freely rotated in a socket. Moving the pen across the page made the ball rotate, where it picked up a thick ink from a reservoir and applied it to the page. The Biro pen was the first successful ballpoint writing instrument. His pen came to the attention of a British clerk who thought the pen would be useful to airplane navigators because it was not dependent on pressure for ink distribution, working well at high altitudes. The British government bought Biro's patent and had the pens made for the Royal Air Force. From this, Biros pen quickly gained commercial success.-PS
