Microwave - Percy Spencer

With the end of WWII, the Raytheon engineer was looking for other uses for the Magnetron, which generated the microwaves for radar systems. While Spencer was standing next to the device one day, a chocolate bar in his pocket melted. He then found out that the magnetron worked even better on popcorn. Microwave oven was invented.
