A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 1961 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1961.
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 1961 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.
Travel records with music between route directions for use in phonograph-equipped cars. They'd be cheap paper disks to replace unwieldy road maps. - T.N.Rizzo, Brooklyn, New York.
A heat dispensing fan flat enough to hang between the wall and radiator where heat gets pocketed. It would operate much as a car heater does. - A.K.Baldenweck, Kirkwood, Mo.
A tripod flashlight stand, adjustable for height, that would swivel at various angles and lock. This would leave both hands free for the workman. - H.G.Frank, Teaneck, N.J.
A splinter removing kit for home work shoppers. It would contain all the tools needed for first aid: magnifying glass, tweezers, needle, antiseptic. - Robert Falk, Chicago.
Non-tangling cords on electric drill and similar shop equipment. Why can't they be sold with the self-coiling wire now commonly used on telephones? - W.C.Fox, Nampa, Idaho.
