A warm welcome to the new product ideas from November 1959 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1959.
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 1959 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.
A dust mop cleaner to eliminate shaking mops outdoors. Why isn't there an attachment that would suck dust right into a vacuum-cleaner bag? - W.N.Saha, Syracuse.
Not sure that I understand why they wouldn't just use the vacuum cleaner instead of the mop!
Easy-fill cigarette lighters with a spring and check valve in the bottom. Pressure of the fuel-can tip would push aside the ball normally sealing the opening. - J.Netzel, Tacoma.
A twist-drill sharpener that works like a pencil sharpener. Insert a drill, turn the handle and the tool would be sharpened in a hurry. - Robert LeBoeuf, Salem, Mass.
Making that lovely metal against metal noise!
More storage in cars. A bin in the backrest of the front seat could open into the rear passenger compartment and would use space now wasted. - L.E.Cottingham, Philadelphia.
Smoking in a car full of kids is not a good idea!
Paint for use over fresh plaster that would speed up decorating of new homes by eliminating the curing period or use of a neutralizing wash. - J.P.Smith, Chicago.
