A warm welcome to the new product ideas from July 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.
Rooftop swimming pools on garages. This way it would be impossible for children to stray into them (any exterior stairs would be removable) and they wouldn't rob garden space. - Koriun Nigian, Los Angeles.
Disposable car seat covers for riders in beach or work clothes. Made of waterproof paper or thin plastic, they'd be sold by vending machines at gas stations. - R.C.Miller, Santa Monica
Throw-away bottles and jars with some salvage value. Squared off like milk cartons, they'd stack to form glass-brick room dividers or garden screens. - S.Levine, Oakdale, New York.
Rotary-mower air filters at the top of a tubular handle. Placement far from the discharge chute should eliminate clogging and carburetor trouble. - E.Dodd, Middletown, N.J.
A file shaped like the gullet on a circular-saw blade. That way you could avoid the nicks and notches that spoil the contour after a few sharpenings. - Carl Bombard, Holyoke, Mass.
