T-Shirt of the Day Award for a Roller Skate Patent!

4 Jan

Though roller skates have been around since the 1743, James Leonard Plimpton is the father of the modern roller skate. He patented his new invention – wheels that pivot, allowing the skater to go in circles and turn corners rather than simply going in a straight line – on January 4, 1863.
