A warm welcome to the new product ideas from November 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.
Flares in shotgun shells for use by lost hunters. They could be fired so they'd burst high above the treetops and burn out before hitting the ground. - Bob Mulhollan, New Orleans.
A carbon monoxide indicator. An adhesive-backed button to stick on the dashboard. It would change color to warn you of gas inside the car. - Mrs.L.Koslover, Watertown, Mass.
Jumbo aluminum-foil bags for turkeys. Wrapping a 20-pound bird in foil for roasting is a big job and the sheet is difficult to seal. - Mrs. J.Mihalick, East Liverpool, Ohio.
A stapling gun for office papers that would form its own staples from wire fed from a roll. Then you wouldn't have to reload it so often. - Ronald K.Hering, Madison, Wis.
Easy-to-identify plywood. Dye one ply of exterior plywood, and it couldn't be confused with interior stock when you work with left-overs. - J.Mitchell, Akron, Ohio.
