A warm welcome to the new product ideas from July 1959 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1959.
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 1959 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.
Patio dining accommodations that could be built into an outside wall of a house. Table and benches would pull down for use, fold up flat for storage. - Bill Broadwell, Charlotte, N.C.
Multiple use mowers. With a flexible shaft hooked to a power take-off, my mower could run a hedge trimmer, knife sharpener, and car polisher, etc. - C.N.Breitenfeldt, Marathon, Wis.
More light on wagons. I'd like a manually operated switch on the tailgate so I wouldn't have to open a side door to see into the back. - Gary Conley, Sheffield Lake, Ohio
A back-scrubbing bath brush that could be attached to a shower wall. It would have a well for liquid soap and a pushbutton to dispense it. - A.T.Iberg, Highland, Ill.
Ribbon-renewing rollers on typewriters. As the ribbon fed through, it would be re-inked and never need replacement until the fabric was worn. - John Ryder, Little Falls, N.J.
