The Inventor of the Frisbee Was Cremated and Turned into a Frisbee

The inventor of the Frisbee was cremated and turned into a Frisbee. I personally can’t think of any reason why, if you were cremated, you wouldn’t want your remains to go somewhere that you love or enjoy. That’s exactly what ‘Steady’ Ed Headrick, the inventor of the Frisbee requested before his death.

The invention of a flying disc type object has been around for thousands of years. The Greeks used a very similar item as a weapon of war, the discus, which is used today in Olympic events. While basic flying discs have been in use for a very long time, it wasn’t really until Walter Morrison came along before the Second World War that the device started to find a niche as a toy.
