A warm welcome to the new product ideas from February 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...
An oil fired flame thrower for clearing ice from sidewalks and driveways. A flame close to the ground would melt thin ice and loosen the thicker ice. - Ralph Monroe, Pontiac, Mich.
A car heater thermostat that you could set for desired temperature. This would eliminate being baked, as well as constant need for adjustment. Mrs. Barbara Davis, Rome, Ga.
Easy to load tape recorder reels. They would have a slotted plug, set in flush, that you could turn with a finger to lock in the starter end of the tape. David A Odom, Puyallup, Wash.
Snow shedding shovels with blades coated with teflon (the plastic used on non-stick frying pans) and a built in hand warmer in the handle. - H.F.Stephens, Pleasantville, N.J.
Transparent flowerpots for house plants so you could check the depth penetration when watering and even determine when roots were out growing the pot. - Roger Rachow, Omaha.
