Who has invented it?
I don´t know if you know the german commercial for “Ricola”. It goes about the invention of the “Ricola” cough sweet. Several nations claim the invention of the drop, but at the end a man in a suit enforces them to admit, that the Ricola cough sweet was invented in Switzerland. We just found out, that an indispensable tool in IT was invented in Switzerland. Without modern IT wouldn´t be the same: The wire strap as we use it today. The wire strap was invented by Rudolf Fehr from Basel, Switzerland almost 40 years ago. It´s the patent 528 834 issued by the Authority of intellectual property of the Switzerland.
