Most inventions that are relevant to practical applications in our society are recognized from the start, with a few exceptions.

And yet, incredibly, the cutting-edge application of this technology was demonstrated more than 100 years ago. Christian Hulsmeyer, from Germany, was responsible for this achievement.
