What do you know about Flying Disc?
What is a Flying Disk?
So, a flying disc (also called a Frisbee or simply a Disc) is a gliding toy or sporting item. It is generally made of injection-molded plastic with curved edges with a diameter of 20-25 centimeters. The disc is made in such a way that during its flight a lifting force is created, which allows the discs to be thrown over considerable distances and with great accuracy. It is used recreationally and competitively for throwing and catching.
History or who invented the Flying Disc
Walter Frederick Morrison and his future wife Lucile had fun tossing a popcorn can lid after a Thanksgiving Day dinner in 1937. After the war, Morrison sketched a design for an aerodynamically improved flying disc that he called the Whirlo-Way. He and his business partner Warren Franscioni began producing the first plastic discs by 1948, after design modifications and experimentation with several prototypes. They renamed them the Flying-Saucer in the wake of reported unidentified flying object sightings.
Interesting Fact about “Frisbee”
The term Frisbee is often used generically to describe all flying discs, but Frisbee is a registered trademark of the Wham-O toy company.
In June 1957, the disc was given the brand name "Frisbee". Yale University students threw tin pies from the Frisbie Pie Company at each other in their free time. The name "Frisbie" was so popular with students that the Wham-O representatives renamed their Flying Saucers “Frisbee”. One letter was deliberately changed to prevent Frisbie Pie Company from claiming the name.
