  • Description

    INVENTORS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC ARE EXHIBITING SOME OF THEIR LATEST IDEAS. SOME HAVE A PRACTICAL APPLICATION - OTHERS ARE JUST FOR FUN. ONE OF THE EXHIBITIONS IS AT HERNING IN THE DANISH PROVINCE OF JUTLAND - AND THE OTHER IS IN NEW YORK.

    THE NEW IDEAS ON SHOW IN THE DANISH EXHIBITION VARY. THERE'S A BOX WHOSE DOOR IS HINGED ON BOTH SIDES - AND AN AUTOMATIC FLY-SWATTER WHICH COULD STRIKE TERROR INTO THE HEART OF ANY HOUSEHOLD INSECT.

    THE NEW YORK DISPLAY - PART OF THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL INVENTORS AND NEW PRODUCTS EXHIBITION - SHOWS EVEN MORE IMAGINATION. ON THE PRACTICAL SIDE THERE IS A POCKET TELEPHONE THAT CAN BE CARRIED BY A BUSY EXECUTIVE UP TO A MILE FROM HIS OFFICE. WHEN HIS TELEPHONE RINGS ON THE OFFICE DESK - SO WILL THE POCKET TELEPHONE.

    THEN, FOR THE MAN WHO DREADS THAT WINTER SHAVE IN COLD LATHER THERE IS A DEVICE THAT FITS ON THE TOP OF ANY SPRAY CAN OF SHAVING CREAM. THE DEVICE IS PLUGGED INTO AN ELECTRICAL SOCKET - AND THE SHAVINGS CREAM COMES OUT HOT AND STEAMING.

    FINALLY - FOR THE MAN OR WOMAN WITH AN EYE FOR A PRACTICAL JOKE - THERE'S A GOLF BALL, WHICH WHEN HIT, ERUPTS IN A CLOUD OF DENSE WHITE SMOKE. IT'S QUITE HARMLESS - AND PERHAPS GOOD FOR A JOKE NEXT TIME YOU ARE OUT ON THE LINKS.
