New Product Ideas From January 1958

By Martin Gilliard

A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 1958 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1958.

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 1958 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.
