    New inventions including tennis racket with detachable handle & electric iron which turns into hot plate.

  • Description

    "Some cute ideas seen at the Institute of Patentees Exhibition."

    First invention to be demonstrated is the tennis racquet with a handle which unscrews so that it can be placed inside a bag. C/U of a woman unscrewing the handle of the tennis racquet. She smiles at the camera. The next idea is a hand-propelled luggage carrier. M/S of the woman placing a suitcase inside a metal carrier. She ties a belt around the case. She then lifts up the trolley and then wheels it along.
