A warm welcome to the new product ideas from March 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.
Curbside trash receivers like the mail boxes that can be reached from inside a car. On highways they could be at the edge of the shoulder. - John Bryant, Cumberland, Md.
Venetian blinds of flexible plastic. Youngsters (or the family pup) couldn't bend them out of shape when they poke them aside to look out of windows. - Glenn Corbett, Kansas City, Mo.
Transparent plastic gas tanks on lawn mowers, so you could check fuel levels instead of waiting until the mower stops to know that the tank is empty. - Jeffrey Konig, Grafton, Wis.
An easy to adjust hand brake for automobiles. Why not a threaded shaft so that by simply turning the handle clockwise, you could tighten the brake? - H.J.Simoff, Cleveland.
An antenna connection on small transistor radios so they could be operated more efficiently in a car, using the regular automobile antenna. - Charles E.Yeatts, Camp Hill, Pa.
