A warm welcome to the new product ideas from June 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.
Inflatable furniture of heavy plastic for use outdoors - or indoors when extra seating is required. Deflated it could be easily stored away and take little space. - R.C.Dunne, La Grange, Ill.
Stamp-dispensing cash registers. They'd hold rolls of premium or gift stamps and release the correct number as the bill total is rung up. - Bob Lee, Redondo Beach, California.
A rear air duct in cars to permit air entering front ventilators to escape. This would make it unnecessary to open windows in rainy weather. - J.C.Culler, Newberry, S.C.
Cement bags like shopping bags, with handles and tough pasteboard bottoms to keep the unused contents of an opened bag dry and off the ground. - Bobby Burns, Whiteville, N.C.
Two-ended nails for invisible joinings without drilling. Set a tube on the head to drive in one end, then drive the work onto the other end. - J.L.Barrett, Beckley, W.Va.
