A warm welcome to the new product ideas from July 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.
Patch testers for sunbathers to prevent bad burns. The chemically treated stick-on patch would change color when further exposure is dangerous. - Bill Crowell, Raleigh, N.C.
Shaded eyeglasses to block out glare. A shallow overhang on the frame would have the same effect as holding your hand against your forehead. - R.Blagden, E.Hampton. Conn.
Come-apart car radiators with a top chamber that comes off like the oil pan of the engine. Then you could do a complete radiator-cleaning job at home. - L.J.Bump, Vineland, N.J.
Easy-to-see croquet wickets. A spanking white nylon or reinforced plastic would make durable and washable wickets, easy to spot on a lawn. - W.J.Inman, Silver Spring, Md.
Cord-winding lugs on toasters, mixers and other small appliances. Only my vacuum cleaner provides an anchorage for the extension cord. - Mrs. A.R.Tagg, Ishpeming, Mich.
