A warm welcome to the new product ideas from April 1962 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1962.
Perhaps there is something here that sparks your imagination? Maybe you too can come up with a fantastic, new idea for a product. If so, and if it's something that you would like to share with the rest of the world then please do so by visiting my creative ideas page where you will find a form for submitting your creative ideas.
Please note that as these ideas were from 1962 some of them may now be in common use today or simply irrelevant due to them being related to an old fashioned product or concept.
This is an idea for a camping wagon where the front and back seats could be folded down. This would eliminate the need to unload the car when it comes time for sleeping. All your gear could be left in the rear of the vehicle and under the sleeping area. - Mrs. B.Clark, Sidney, Nebr.
This is an idea for a film-lock on a 35-mm camera. It could be set for either 20 or 36 exposure rolls. It would prevent you unloading a 36 prematurely, or tearing a 20 loose. - A.E.Ortner, New York City.
A vise with holes in the tops of the jaws would enable pins to be inserted. Thus would aid in opening rings or spreading U-shaped pieces of metal by cranking open the vise. - Robert Tomb, Indiana, Pa
Waterproof paper boots would keep a dog from tracking muddy prints through the house on rainy / muddy days. After his walk you would slip them off and throw them away. - Daniel Lavie, Jerusalem, Israel.
Easy to clean stoves with no top burners. Why not embed electric wiring in one of the space-vehicle ceramics that can withstand high heat? - B.G. Holmes, Garden City, New York.
