A warm welcome to the new product ideas from October 1960 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1960.
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 1960 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 split lid for car trunks. If hinged at each side, the trunk would take much bulkier items, or with a canvas enclosure, form a box bed. - Starr Moshier, Rochester, New York.
A power driven vibrating brush for removing old wallpaper that has been painted over or is otherwise stubbornly unaffected by soaking. - Ralph T. Stewart, Winston-Salem, N.C.
This is an idea for thermos-bottle girdles made out of hard rubber. Slipped over a bottle, they'd add corners to keep it from rolling off a table or bench and smashing the lining. - F.M.Scott, Leonia, N.J.
Ornamental shutter latches of black plastic instead of wrought iron. They wouldn't rust and streak stains over the siding as metal ones do. - J.E.Weber, Chevy Chase, Md.
Flat appliance cords for outdoor equipment. With adhesive on one side, they'd stick to a wall or patio floor, be much safer, and look neater. - Rich and Hughes, Pompano Beach, Fla.
