Description
An illustrated Book of Days for inventions, discoveries, science, and technology, this entertaining tome from the editor of Wired.com's hugely popular "This Day in Tech" blog offers an anniversary entry for every day of the year. On July 7, for example, in 1936, Henry Phillips was awarded the patent for the Phillips head screw, while on July 8 (1908) the first successful color motion picture process was demonstrated in Paris. Genius inventor Nikola Tesla was born on the last second of July 9 (1856); on July 10 (1962), Volvo engineer Nils Bohlin received a U.S. patent for the three-point seat belt; on July 11 (1979) Skylab fell to earth; and on July 12 (1960), the first Etch-a-Sketch went on sale.
