Happy Birthday to the inventor of the Ballpoint pen!

You may not realize this but the humble ballpoint pen, used by millions of people around the world every day, is less than eight decades old.

Biro, also known as László József Bíró, was born on 29 September 1899 in Budapest in what was then Austria-Hungary.
