A warm welcome to the new product ideas from February 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.
Kitchen deodorizers that could be linked by tubing to forced-air furnaces. They would quickly eliminate cooking odors in winter when windows are shut. - Fred Purnell, Lombard, Ill.
A jack-plane with an extension at one side. By sliding the extension along the face of a board, you could keep the edge square while you planed it. - Donald Snyder, Canton, Ohio.
A vacuum-bottle adapter to make it a baby's bottle for use at drive-in movies or on car trips. No need to heat the milk - just slip on the nipple. - S.Abramczyk, Wyandotte, Mich.
Pull-out dome lights on cars. A long reel wound cord would allow the lamp and housing to be removed for use as a trouble light outside the car. - Robert Current, Fort Wayne, Ind.
A one-piece plastic garage that would swing open or closed, like a clamshell, on a spring-and-hinge mechanism anchored in the concrete-slab base. - Ralph Westervelt, Newark, N.J.
