A warm welcome to the new product ideas from December 1961 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1961.
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 1961 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.
Brakes on shopping carts would be great for unloading your shopping when the cart is on uneven ground. It would prevent the cart from rolling away and banging into other peoples cars. - L.D.Kurtz, Greensburg, Pa.
This idea for a heavy duty multiple outlet box would be ideal for cooking at the table. It would be a bit like a photographers light box and would look good if enclosed in ceramic tiles. - H.Kearney, Elizabeth, N.J.
A deflatable seat in sedans would give you more luggage space for use on long trips or would make extra room for hauling bulky objects. - F.J.MacDonald, Fairmont, W.Va.
An erasable writing panel on cameras like those that photographers have on film holders would enable you to record the film type and any other data of relevance. - A.E.Ortner, Brooklyn, New York.
A scoring tool for seating plaster in cracks. You would open the points to the desired amount to cut a "dovetail" groove as you ran the tool down the crack. - E.Hess, South Amboy, N.J.
