Nils Ivar Bohlin (July 17, 1920 – September 21, 2002)

Nils Bohlin, the Swedish engineer and inventor responsible
for the three-point lap and shoulder seatbelt–considered
one of the most important innovations in automobile safety,
was born in Härnösand, Sweden.

Before 1959, only the two-point lap belts were available in
automobiles; for the most part, the only people who regularly
buckled up were race car drivers.

In 1942 Bohlin started working for the aircraft maker Saab as
an aircraft designer and helped develop ejection seats. In 
1958 he joined Volvo as a safety engineer where he invented
the three-point safety belt, now a standard safety feature in
all cars.

YOU ONCE USED A REAL POTATO FOR THIS !

The toy Mr. Potato Head was invented and developed by George Lerner in
1949, and first manufactured and distributed by
Hasbro in 1952. Mr. Potato
Head was the first toy
advertised on TV and has remained in production
since its debut. The toy was originally produced as separate plastic parts
with pushpins that could be stuck into a real potato or other vegetable, but
due to complaints regarding rotting vegetables and new government safety regulations, Hasbro began including a plastic potato body within the toy set
in 1964.
