A warm welcome to the new product ideas from March 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.
Individual paste pots for schoolroom use. They'd hold just enough paste for one child's project and would therefore eliminate sticky jars and dried out paste. - Nathan Bridwell, Midland, Mich.
A chin strap on mens hats. Tucked behind the sweat band, it could be lifted out on a windy day and snap-fastened to the face of the band. - Jim Martin, St. John's, Newfoundland.
Rugs with pockets at the four corners into which the rug could be inserted. Pads are always shifting and showing at the edges and this would anchor them. - Joan Bost, Chicago.
Insulating guards for soldering guns. With only the tip of the gun exposed, you wouldn't burn other parts when soldering in a radio chassis. - H.G.Radcliffe, Petersburg, Va.
Car oil-filler spouts that would pierce metal. Then you could shove the can onto the spout, after removing the breather cap, and pour in the oil. - H.T.Gibbons, Scottsdale, Arizona.
