    Background: IN BRUSSELS, INVENTORS FROM ROUND THE GLOBE DISPLAYED THEIR WORK AT THE 18TH INTERNATIONAL INVENTORS' EXHIBITION WHICH OPENED YESTERDAY (FRIDAY).

    EXHIBITS INCLUDED A TABLE WHICH CONVERTS TO AN IRONING BOARD, AND A CHILD'S COT CALLED "BABY'S BED FOR THE YEAR 2000". FOR INVALIDS, THERE WAS A CHAIR WHICH MAKES STANDING UP EASY.

    ALSO ON DISPLAY, AN IDEA WHICH COULD SAVE MOTORIST' TEMPERS IN WET WEATHER - A SPARKING PLUG WHICH FUNCTIONS EVEN UNDER WATER.

    FINALLY, AN IDEA FOR IMPROVING THE ILLUSION OF ELECTRIC CANDLES: A LIGHT METER ACTIVATED BY A MATCH SWITCHES ON THE ELECTRIC CANDLE.
