New Haven, Connecticut’s Yale University can lay claim to many famous inventions, but perhaps the most famous is the Frisbee, an idea born in the 1920s when a group of Yale students made a game of tossing empty pie tins. In 1957, the Wham-O toy company rolled out the first plastic discs we now know as the modern Frisbee.
