A warm welcome to the new product ideas from September 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.
Have a perfectly level camping table on rocky ground with the no-rock camping gear table. It would have telescopic legs just like those on a camera tripod. you would lock each leg at the right height so the equipment would stand level on bumpy or sloping ground. - Skip Mosher, Rialto, California.
Chuck keys for hand drills on a recoil cord housed inside the tool would mean that the cord would not tangle in the drill and the key couldn't be mislaid. - John Overby, Osburn, Idaho.
This plastic foam-filled pad would be shaped to fit a standard bath tub so you could soak out muscle pains in comfort. It would be thin enough to fold for storage. - Mike Patterson, Dallas.
This magnetic pickup bar would be placed on the front of power mowers to prevent nails, bits of wire and other metal objects from being flung outwards by the mowers blades. - Harry Randall, Bessemer, Ala.
A sliding plant stand would be built into a window. You would push it outside so the plants could get an airing when the sun is warm. - Deborah Johansen, Nelsonville, New York.
