How about the atomic bomb?

That's an interesting case. Though, I suppose it wasn't really the Manhattan project group that -invented- it. The idea and the theory had been discussed among physicists for some time already. Actually building one was a complex project that required lots of resources. I'm not really sure who -first- realized that it might be done, but it had to have started with someone that first concieved it.
