A warm welcome to the new product ideas from June 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.
Easy-roll boat trailers and outboard carriers on Rolygon air-bag tires. They'd handle more easily on rough terrain than wheeled ones. - R.W.Schiller, Menominee, Mich.
Soft-plastic milk cartons so you'd never get clumps of wax in a glass of milk. And you'd never get leaks in the nonbreakable containers, either. - R.H.Morgan, Towaco, N.J.
Replacement signalling wicks for cigarette lighters. Why not dye the last inch a bright color, or simply interweave several colored threads? - J.J.Vernimmen, Grand Rapids, Mich.
A light picnic trailer on two wheels. You could jockey it around by hand at the picnic site and the cover would open out to make it a table. R.A.Reynolds, Westbrook, Maine.
A pull-out sun visor over a car windshield. It would stretch across to fill the gap and shade a middle passenger from bright sun. - Richard Bauguess, Fort Worth, Texas.
