A warm welcome to the new product ideas from December 1960 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1960.
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 1960 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.
Air-breathing valves on storm doors so they'd be easier to close. The valve would automatically bleed off air caught between the inner and outer door. - M.Malmgren, Aurora, Ill.
Stick on roll film you'd press onto a take-up reel instead of fussing with a slot. There'd be an adhesive on the back of the first inch. - A.R.Tanner Jr., Poughkeepsie, New York.
Zip-up ice skates with laces too - to adjust indoors. Outdoors, you'd just zip them on or off without freezing bare hands or fumbling with laces. - J.J.Drill, St. Nazianz, Wis.
Throwaway perking bags of flow-through fabric or paper. They'd hold premeasured coffee and eliminate cleaning that messy percolator basket. - H.Lemunyon, N.Industry, Ohio.
A change holder on the car dashboard. Why not a smaller version of the bus-driver's change maker to deal out coins for parking and road tolls? - Mrs.R.H.Fitzpatrick, Gary, Ind.
