Spain is not a nation known for its world-changing inventors, but there are certainly quite a few brainy Spaniards who have influenced the course of history with their brilliant ideas.
Last week we reported on how Spanish engineer José Luis López Gómez had been named one of Europe's top inventors by the European Patents Office.
A couple of weeks back The Local also paid tribute to Mónico Sánchez, an inventor from Ciudad Real who created the x-ray machine and worked on the world's first mobile phone.
From the explosive Molotov cocktail to the world’s first video game, we have plenty of interesting facts to keep you repeating “¿En serio?” over and over again.
