Extractions: Back in the late 19th century, students at American colleges discovered that the pie tins made by the Frisbie Baking Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut, were the perfect thing to throw back and forth on their campus lawns on warm spring days. The fad is said to have started at Yale University, which is located in New Haven, not far from Bridgeport. The saucer-shaped tins, they found, had excellent aerodynamic qualities, and when thrown with a spin and launched at various angles, could gain lift, fly surprisingly far, and, with a little practice, be made to curve, hover, and do a variety of tricks. Despite the popularity of the pie tins, it took over 50 years for Walter Frederick Morrison and Warren Franscioni to come up with the idea of making a plastic version designed specifically for throwing. Morrison's "Pluto Platter" failed to take off, however, and it was not until Rich Knerr and Spud Mellin founded the Wham-O company a decade later and bought the rights to the product, which they renamed the "Frisbee," that flying discs became a nationwide fad. Then, in the 1960s, technology entered the picture. Edward E. "Steady Ed" Headrick, an inventor and entrepreneur working for Wham-O, came up with the idea of adding concentric grooved ridges or "spoilers" to the top of the Frisbee

Superflight, Inc: Aerobie Superdisc a Popular Science award for the best new recreational product of toy mission of inventingan improved frisbee. Conventional flying discs such as http://www.aerobie.com/p-superdisc.htm
Extractions: With the Superdisc, Alan Adler returned to his original flying toy mission of inventing an improved "Frisbee." Conventional flying discs such as the Frisbee have a center of aerodyanmic lift near the leading edge of the disc in flight. This creates a tendancy for a flying disc to roll right during right handed throws and to roll left during left handed throws. The breakthrough spoiler rim design of the Superdisc, like the spoiler rim of the Aerobie rings, centers the aerodyamic lift of the disc during its entire flight, making the Superdisc a very stable flyer. The result is a flying disc that is very easy for people of all skill levels to throw well. The Superdisc also has a soft, rubber edge that has many benefits. It provides a great grip for strong throws, it is soft to catch, and it does not develop sharp scratches and burrs like a conventional disc when it hits pavement. The soft edge is also kind to a dog's mouth when the Superdisc is used for play with a dog.

Extractions: Related Innovations More Toys By Mary Bellis Every object has a history, and behind that history an inventor, the person who thought it up first. Sometimes who was first can be a topic for hot debate: often several people independent of each other will all think of the same good idea at around the same time and will later have to argue "No it was me, I thought of it first." Many people have claimed to have invented the Frisbee. The Frisbie Baking Company (1871-1958) of Bridgeport, Connecticut, made pies that were sold to many New England colleges. Hungry college students soon discovered that the empty pie tins could be tossed and caught, providing endless hours of game and sport. Many colleges have claimed to be the home of 'he who was first to fling.' Yale College has even argued that in 1820, a Yale undergraduate named Elihu Frisbie grabbed a passing collection tray from the chapel and flung it out into the campus, thereby becoming the true inventor of the Frisbie and winning glory for Yale. That tale is unlikely to be true since the words 'Frisbie's Pies' was embossed in all the original pie tins and from the word 'Frisbie' was coined the common name for the toy.

Extractions: Ed Headrick was responsible for designing the modern Frisbee. Although discs for throwing had been made by the toy manufacturer Wham-O since 1957, they had sold modestly, mainly because of complaints that they were so wobbly in the air. Headrick altered the design to great effect. In 1964 he changed the shape to make the discs more aerodynamic, adding concentric rings to the top to increase stability in flight. Headricks professional model had superior lift and could be thrown far greater distances than its flatter predecessors. He also changed the styling, so that what had been a plaything aimed at children became a leisure-time accessory with which grown-ups could happily be seen. As a consquence, the Frisbee took off. By the 1970s, no American beachfront or park was complete without its swift and silent presence. Headrick had transformed a childrens toy into an enduring national craze, enjoyed by millions of adults.
Extractions: June 28, 1924 to August 12, 2002. He returned home to California Aug. 6 after doctors determined that physical therapy would not aid his recovery and that his condition would continue to deteriorate. On Saturday, friends and family held an open house. Several longtime friends visited with Headrick throughout the daylong celebration of his life, according to his youngest son, Gary Headrick. Steady Ed Headrick was born in South Pasadena on June 28, 1924. He had lived in Santa Cruz County for the past nine years. Headrick invented the Frisbee while working at San Gabriel-based Wham-O in 1964. In the 1970s, he created the sport of disc golf, which involves throwing a Frisbee at a metal cage. Headrick had donated disc golf equipment to a number of recreational programs for under-privileged youth nationwide. He is survived by his wife, Farina Headrick of La Selva Beach; one daughter, Valerie Headrick of Quincy; three sons, Ken Headrick of San Juan-San Ramon, Costa Rica, Daniel Headrick of Laguna Beach and Gary Headrick of San Clemente; and 11 grandchildren.
Extractions: in special-edition Frisbees. Just before he died, the creator of the game of Frisbee golf said he wanted his ashes to be mixed into new versions of the famous plastic disc and his family hopes these limited-edition Frisbees could be sold to help fund a museum in his honor. Edward "Steady Ed" Headrick made his wishes clear to his family in the weeks before his death at 3:30 a.m. Monday at his home in Santa Cruz , his son Dr. Daniel Headrick said today. "For years, he used to joke about saying he wanted to live on as a Frisbee, " Daniel Headrick said of his father. "We always thought he was joking. But he made it clear he was serious. He wanted us to use his ashes in making some Frisbees. He even said he hopes we throw them around in his honor." The details of the tribute Frisbees and plans for a museum are still being worked out.
