A warm welcome to the new product ideas from December 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.
Cordless Christmas tree bulbs that could be spotted at random. They'd operate off radio-frequency currents transmitted by a device like a Tesla coil. - K.L.Swinth, Seattle.
An easier oil changing system on cars. Put an electric pump on a drain line leading to an outlet on a fender and it would be easy to service your own car. - Paul LeBrun, Salem, Mass.
Film identification tabs you could stick to your camera as a reminder, later, of what film you had inside and its speed. The tabs could also seal the rolls. - Mrs.A.E.Opper, Brooklyn, New York.
A duffel-bag carrier for servicemen. Similar to the small two-wheeled carts used for golf bags, it would fold for storage inside the bag. - C.K.Adams, Manhattan, Kan.
Earring accomodaters for phone receivers so that women wouldn't have to remove an earing to hear properly. A U-shaped foam-rubber pad might do the trick. - Catherine Gundling, Covina, California.
