From Suitcases on wheels for tear-free onion slicers by Corey KILGANNON Published: August 6, 2000 They all laughed when Edison recorded sound,''Ira Gershwin wrote in 1937. He also laughed at Bernard Sadow and the funny-looking suitcase on wheels pulled into one of Macy morning. Mr. Sadow and his prototype were ridiculed and rejected by a buyer for Macy's, which bore the conventional luggage Sadow's company, sir, USA luggage done. But this was 1972, and no one knew of rolling luggage. Soon, the luggage manufacturer found himself sad his idea to shoot right out.''I said, 'Nobody is going to pull a suitcase on the end of a leash,''recalled Mr. Sadow. But two weeks later, he obtained an appointment with a vice president Macy's soon doing just that: towing the suitcase around his office, laughing with glee. That the buyer called naysaying and with a broad smile from him, asked:''So, Jack, how about my new idea?''recalled Mr. Sadow. ''He looked at me and then back at the boss, and he said: "Great, I love it." ''The executive said the buyer to buy, and that was the beginning of the wheels hand luggage. Mr. Sadow, 75, recently recalled that all the well-furnished living room of his extensive Chappaqua home.

Westchester has had a long tradition of inventors. Most large corporations in the county, like International Business Machines, maintain a stable of inventors on staff to develop technologies and processes. But more and more independent inventors are emerging, established in basements and garages around the county. county is still known for buttoned down bankers and lawyers catch the 6:58, no hair shock llorando''Eureka eccentric-genius!''of their workshops. But, according to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, about 600 inventions one year was invented and patented in Westchester. In New York, only Monroe County, Rochester-based Kodak is located, had more patents last year in 1549. By comparison, Manhattan had 533 and Nassau 351.

He tied a rope to it, and it worked like a charm,''''he said. Since then, his inventions include air cushioned laptop briefcases, electric toothpicks and training wheels for luggage drunk. His latest innovation, a dispenser spray of holy water, now sells for $ 19.95 in the gift shop at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan. Of course not every inventor is as successful as Mr. Sadow. So far, Vince and Patrice Cacciatore of Yonkers have not made a profit from their inventions, not the key to your tube of toothpaste, or his lollipop pill Children's cough. They are devout Catholics and say they invented the name of the Lord. They hope their latest inventions great success, so they can use profits rental of billboard space for biblical quotations. Mr. Cacciatore, who owns a copier repair service, invented a cardboard platform pizza boxes to take to keep your feet get soaked, letting the air circulate under the crust.
