    ...
    Silly Putty was invented because the government needed a new product to use on airplanes tires and soldiers boots in the 1940s during WWII. However, the problem was that there was not enough natural rubber that they can use so they decided to come up with a synthetic, or man-made, rubber. This is were Silly Putty came into play.
    The government was determined to find the right material to use for their needs. They believed that the right substance to use was silicon which happens to be something that is found in sand. They asked lots of large companies to have their engineers look into using silicon to make the synthetic rubber they were after.
