A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 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.
Post hole diggers with depth markings in feet and inches on one handle. Then there'd be no need for repeatedly trying the pole in the hole. - Stephen Walton, White Plains, N.Y.
Stick-on lead-in wire. Pressure-sensitive adhesive would anchor it fast from the antenna down the side of the house, along the joist, floor or baseboard. - H.P.Fischer, Rochester, Pa.
Signal strips on frozen-food packages. Of heat-sensitive paper, they'd change color to warn buyers if kept warm enough to impair the food. - Mrs. G.Rosenfeld, Bronx, New York City.
More storage inside cars to hold the overflow from the glove compartment. Why not put a washable plastic drawer beneath the front seat? - C.L.Berger, Plainview, New York.
Water-paint capsules for use with a garden hose. You'd simply drop the capsule in a special container, turn on the water and hose on the paint. - J.M.Blasko, Savanna, Ill.
