New Product Ideas From September 1958

By Martin Gilliard

A warm welcome to the new product ideas from September 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.


Short-Range-Radio Sirens

Short-range-radio sirens on fire trucks and ambulances. A howling signal transmitted over car radios would over-ride loud-playing programs. - Bob Dupwe, Russelville, Ark.

A Horizontal Tire Rack

A horizontal tire rack beneath the car so the spare would serve as a pneumatic bumper. To free the tire, you'd unlock the rack and slide it out. - E.L.Gallini, Springfield, Mass.

Decals Of Wood Knots

Decals of wood knots to cover nailheads in knotty-pine paneling. Toenailing at the tongue may be inadequate, and surface nailing can be ugly. - J.G.McGowan, Springdale, Conn.

Illuminated Electric Razors

Illuminated electric razors. Built-in lights would make it a lot easier to get a clean shave in bathrooms where the only lighting is overhead. - H.L.Linenberger, Bastrop, Texas

Fan Attachment For A Drill Press

A fan attachment for a frill press to blow the chips away. A vaned cylinder that could be attached over the chuck should do the job. - Bill Corney, Dearborn, Mich.
