From Anders Celsius’s thermometer in the 1700s to Skype in 2003, Sweden has long been a country that breeds innovation in all areas of life. The official website of Sweden has now published a Top 10 list of innovations that originated in the Scandinavian country, amongst them everyday items such as the zipper, the adjustable wrench, and the artificial pacemaker. Also, the three-point seatbelt is on the list, an invention by Nils Bohlin that positioned his employer Volvo on the next level of automotive safety in 1959.
Sweden is also among the world leaders in the transition towards electric vehicles and is committed to having a 100% fossil fuel-free vehicle fleet by 2030. Sweden.se mentions Uniti as one of the most hyped examples of Swedish innovation in this field.
