4 Argentine inventions that changed the whole world's life

Creativity and inventive are two of the virtues that represent us all over the planet.

As we are

We Argentines are used to falling and getting up, to get ahead no matter what happens. That ability gives us the possibility to see further, to find new solutions when everything seemed to be lost. Therefore, it is not surprising that some of the most important inventions in history have emerged in these lands.

We present 4 Argentine inventions that changed our lives:

 1) Fingerprints 

The classification method and the technology of identifying people by their fingerprints (Dactyloscopic System) was invented in 1891 by Argentine police Juan Vucetich.

 2) Cardiac bypass 

This technique, which revolutionized world cardiology, consists of an intervention to treat heart obstructions. It was created by Dr. René Favaloro in 1967.

 3) The birome 

This invention, which is present today at all desks in the world, came up with Ladislao Biró, a naturalized Argentinian Hungarian, when he saw a group of boys playing ball on the street.

 4) The magiclick 

Hugo Kogan was in charge of designing this wonderful product, which generates spark to be able to ignite the gas burners. He created it in 1963, when he was director of Aurora's Design Department.
