An inventions which were underestimated for years, there are inventions that are completely underestimated for years, sometimes for centuries. For a short time in the spotlight, these achievements quickly leave the scene, used only by a few authorities or companies and are mostly only much later again to the fore. And then we, the real potential, identify what is behind these technologies. So fare as the fax technology. Hard to imagine that it already was a watchmaker in Scotland in 1843, to construct a device which allowed an electric transmission, of black and white images. The copying Telegraph.
