A warm welcome to the new product ideas from May 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.
A portable grill with a storage bin for charcoal. A swing-out lid could cover the lower section. Pulled out, it would become a food counter. - W.J.Roche, Scranton, Pa.
Long lasting fence pickets made of white plastic. Besides being rot-proof, they'd do away with the chore and expense of frequent repainting. - W.H.Hoeft, Vancouver, Washington.
A white line on a garden hose. Running the length of the plastic tubing, it would signal if there is any twisting of the hose as it is wound back on to the reel. - W.Dale, Marietta, Ohio.
Car mufflers and exhaust pipes with flange and bolt connections. With fittings like that, removal or installation would be a breeze. - Robert E.Curlee, Winston-Salem, N.C.
Knapsacks that open out flat to make it more convenient for campers to find things. They might be cross-shaped and zipper-fastened. - Norvell Neitzke, Plainview, Nebr.
