A warm welcome to the new product ideas from November 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.
A dropout window like the emergency door in a bus on each side of your house would fall out for a quick fire exit. R.A.Shaw, Ardsley, New York.
A sliding pass-through counter between the kitchen and the dining room would mean that you could load from either side and slide the section through on tracks. A.C.Dumont, Hackensack, N.J.
Chimney pockets for TV antennas. A vertical row of L-shaped bricks with holes in jutting ends would do it. Align the holes to form a socket. - Ray Moore, Wellsville, Ohio.
Recessed outlets with plugs keyed for insertion. Flush with a wall, plugs would be less noticeable and would interfere less with furniture. A.R.Shulman, Wantagh, N.Y.
This is an idea for tube packed peanut butter that you could squeeze out like toothpaste. This way you could spread it easily on a sandwich without tearing the bread apart. - Ross Sloat, Goshen, Ind.
