A warm welcome to the new product ideas from May 1961 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1961.
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 1961 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.
Lunch-counter stools that could be slid in floor slots to adjust distance from the counter would enable both fat and thin folk to enjoy their food in comfort. - Patrick Hall, Fort Smith, Ark.
Underwater weed cutters you would attach to an outboard motor with its prop removed. They'd work like a rotary lawn mower while you rowed the boat. - A. Malinick, Thornwood, New York.
Indent notches at either side of automobile hubcaps. The pesky job of prying off the caps with a tire tool would sure be a lot easier. - Edward Podalske, Crystal Lake, Ill.
Pipe caps, in both pointed and flat-end designs. Hammering a flat one would drive pipe under a sidewalk to carry cable for outdoor wiring. - Steve Hullcranz, Oak Park, Ill.
Small water pumps for pipes leading to a shower or a garden-hose faucet to keep pressure constant if water is drawn elsewhere in the house. - Kurt Alverson, Tonawand, New York.
