A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 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.
A pull-out extension cords with appropriate connections inside the car. To run an engine heater or charge the battery, you'd plug the cord into an outlet. - E.E.Frazer, Kewanee, Ill.
A current meter to measure the electricity any appliance uses in a given period. You'd connect it to the appliance and plug it into the outlet. - P>M>Henson, Joplin, Mo.
Furniture locks to keep sectional couches from sliding apart. A metal plate, to slip over pins on each section or clamp into place, would do it. - W.H.Tapscott, Port Arthur, Texas.
A disposable toothbrush of tough paper or flexible plastic with plastic bristles. Tubular to fit over the index finger, it would need no handle. - S.S.Smith, Oak Park, Mich.
