9 Famous Northeast Ohio Inventions 

October 9, 2013
Clarence Crane's Life Savers have been enjoyed 'round the world since first being invented in 1912.
Do you like being able to see the road when you're driving at night? You can thank Charles Brush for his foresight in creating arced street lights.
The golf ball, a seemingly simple but quite complex piece of engineering, took three people to create: Coburn Haskell, Joseph Mitchell and Bertram Work.
Garrett Morgan knew that having a gas mask could come in handy in deadly situations when he invented the... gas mask.
Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed has long garnered credit for coining the term Rock 'n' Roll. Scene's own dining editor, Doug Trattner, asserts otherwise.
The air traffic control tower, like the one at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, was a very useful innovation in flight.
Cleveland's favorite invention - SUPERMAN! The city pulled out all the stops to celebrate the hero's 75th anniversary earlier this summer, culminating with obsessive, borderline psychotic love for Superman all year across Northeast Ohio.
Quaker Square in Akron is where all the magic started. Oatmeal and breakfast cereals! The complex is now owned by the University of Akron, which turned it into dorms and offices.
Those of you in need of artificial fish bait - and those of you who think worms are "icky" - are in luck: Pfleuger Fishing Tackle created the artificial stuff just for you.
