A warm welcome to the new product ideas from May 1963 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1963.
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 1963 some of them may now be in common use today or simply irrelevant due to them being related to an old fashioned product.
Now for the ideas...
Bug bombs for phone booths that would spray at the drop of a coin. I'd gladly spend a penny to get rid of insects drawn by light at night. - C.Petzold, Runnemede, N.J.
Easy-to-handle-fishing gear - fishing net, boat hook and gaff designed as snap on heads so that you could use them all with a single pole. - Anthony J Santoro, Farmingdale, N.Y.
An angle jig for use with electric hand drills. The arms would telescope as the bit entered the work; graduations would indicate the depth drilled. - R.Knudson, Hanover, N.H.
A clipping catcher for my electric hedge trimmer. It would eliminate the bother of raking up and picking bits and pieces out of the hedge. - R.M. Woodbury, Natick, Mass.
Padded glove compartments in cars. A plastic foam-backed liner would keep hard objects from rolling so readily and rattling against the metal sides. - Art Tussey, Richmond Va.
