A warm welcome to the new product ideas from December 1959 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1959.
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 1959 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.
Rubber tread covers for tracked equipment. Then you could drive a rig short distances on roads instead of hauling it to conform to state laws. - B.R.Sealey Jr., Warwick, Va.
Dual use saber saws of the hand type that come with a table for bench use. They'd have detachable mounts for round-shank files and sanding strips. A.C.Craft, Santa Ana, California.
Between stud hose reels at all outside faucets. With both outside and indoor openings, the hose could be used for garden or fire fighting. - C.J.Scott, Jersey City, N.J.
A two setting car thermostat for quick heat in winter, normal in summer. You'd adjust a setscrew mounted in a water-tight bushing in the housing. - W.M-Handley, Mentor, Ohio.
Great idea but miles away from the dual climate control with exact temperature selection available in many modern day cars!
Foil pocket liners to keep coat pockets free of tobacco shreds and lint. They could be lifted out to serve as disposable ash trays too. - C.J.Berger, Plainview, New York.
