A warm welcome to the new product ideas from February 1960 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1960.
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 1960 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 pull-down partition in station wagons for warmth up front. How about a transparent recessed roof panel riding on tracks like a garage door? - J.J.Vernimmen, Grand Rapids.
A magnet on the hub of movie film reels. Then with some iron filings cemented to the end of leader film, it would be easy to thread. - H.L.Woodward, Sioux City, Iowa.
Radio tie points on long strips that could be cut apart. You'd snip off the number of points needed and then clip them to the mounting lugs. - D.P.Schneider, Waterburg, Conn.
Abrasive gloves with a coating of sand on the palms and the front fingers. They'd be fine for light sanding, particularly on small objects. - Kay Gordin, Derby, Kan.
Eyeglasses with a pocket in one sidepiece to hold an identification plate with the owner's name and address. Then lost glasses might be returned. - R.F.Swenson, Worcester, Mass.
