Dr. Jose Rizal was not technically an inventor. Rizal is best known for being a polymath, a patriot and an advocate for the reform of the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. His involvement in the latter led to him being listed as one of the national heroes of the Philippines by the National Heroes Committee and he is regarded as the foremost Filipino patriot. He was executed in 1896 by the Spanish, something that helped begin the Philippine Revolution and that date is now known as Rizal Day.

Born in 1861 into a rich family, Rizal attended the Ateneo Municipal de Manila where he gained a Bachelor of Arts. Later he enrolled at the University of Santo Tomas to do medicine and continued his studies at the Universidad Central de Madrid. Here he earned the degree of Licentiate in Medicine and went on to study at the University of Paris and then earn a second doctorate at the University of Heidelberg. With the ability to converse in twenty two different language, Rizal was a famous novelist, correspondent, diarist, essayist and poet with two of his most famous works including Noli me Tangere and El filibusterismo. Both of these were commentaries on the Spanish rule and began a literature increase in social commentaries.

Rizal had an important role as a political figure. He founded La Liga Filipina, this was a civic organization that later led to the Katipunan. Rizal wanted to gain Philippine self government in a peaceful manner as opposed to through violent revolution. He believed that the restoration of the dignity of the people was the reason to justify national liberation and self government. While many followed him, Rizal was eventually sentenced to execution by the Spanish. The Spanish believed that this would silence the Filipino's political arguments, instead it helped trigger the Philippine Revolution.
