Through a few particular historical examples from the early 20th century, I will argue that the concept of simultaneous or parallel inventions provides a powerful tool for understanding the process of technical innovation in its social, technical, and scientific contexts. In particular, it helps to identify technical-scientific resources and social-economic needs and wishes central in the process of invention. However, a closer view shows that the aims and the resources of different inventors were not always identical, although one can find connections among them.
