On this day in 1961, Otis Boykin, inventor, patented the Electrical Resistor. U.S. 2,972,726 He is responsible for inventing the electrical device used in all guided missiles and IBM computers, plus 26 other electronic devices including a control unit for an artificial heart stimulator (pacemaker). He began his career as a laboratory assistant testing automatic controls for aircraft. One of Boykin's first achievements was a type of resistor used in computers, radios, television sets, and a variety of electronic devices. Some of his other inventions included a variable resistor used in guided missiles, small component thick-film resistors for computers. The innovations in resistor design reduced the cost of producing electronic controls for radio and television, for both military and commercial applications. Other inventions by Otis Boykin also included a burglar proof cash register and chemical air filter. #OtisBoykin#ElectricalResistor#Inventor#ElectronicDevices#BurglarProofCashRegister#ChemicalAirFilter#Genius#BlackMan#BlackHistory#BlackHistoryMonth
