A warm welcome to the new product ideas from October 1962 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1962.
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 1962 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.
Now for the ideas...
This is an idea for postage meters on street corners so you could stamp a letter by dropping in a coin. Larger boxes could incorporate a postcard dispenser too. - Lon Calhoun, phoenix.
A quick locking dog collar would eliminate the struggle to get it on. The fastener would slide together and lock as some belt buckles do. - Clark Thompson, Corona del Mar, California
This is an idea for asbestos cylinder gaskets with thermocouples to supplement car generators. The hot junction would point to the cylinder and the cold junction to the water hole. - J.V.S. Murty, Visakha Patnam, India.
An idea for iron on buttons on clothing. Adhesive tabs on the back would slip through grommet holes. When ironed flat, they'd be waterproof and unaffected by cleaning. - J.J.McGraw, New York City
This idea for collapsible lamp shades would be ideal for families that frequently move long distances. Lamp shades take lots of packing space and are easily damaged. - Lt. Col. C.M.Busbee Jr., San Francisco
