Today In Tech History - April 10thPosted Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at 2:15 PM
Technology hasn't always been about electronic gadgets.
On April 10th, 1849 a patent was granted to a man named Walter Hunt from the state of New York. Patent #6281 was for a little device called the safety pin. This little object has changed American life over the last 150 years. From not sticking our prom date while pinning her corsage on, to those last second alterations to a wedding dress...this little guy has helped us with thousands of tasks.
Thank you Mr. Hunt
