A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 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.
Road-block warning lights on throughways for use when accidents or fires stall traffic. Drivers could then be alerted miles ahead to take the next exit. - Stephen Samuels, Boston.
One-step starch you could spray on a collar or curtain and iron dry. Soaking, hanging up items and waiting for them to dry would be eliminated. - D.Davan, S.Ozone Park, New York.
Work gloves with transparent plastic cuffs (or one such cuff) so that you could tell time on your wrist watch without taking off the glove. - David Chamberlain, Butte, Mont.
A bottle-decapping drawer handle. An opener stored inside a drawer is hard to find, and besides, our kitchen is disappearing under wall-hung gadgets. - John Teachman, Lincoln, Nebr.
A plug-in jack in the horn circuit at the base of the car's steering column, clearly marked "horn." Yanking out the jack would silence a stuck horn. - F.W.Edwards, Columbus.
