A warm welcome to the new product ideas from September 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 double use trailer. In winter, you'd park it over a foundation, slide out the chassis and pull out a weatherproof seal from trailer to house door. - A.Dorman, Everett, Wash.
A flexible trouble lamp. A magnetic base-plate would conveniently cling to any part of the car to shed light without glare on the job at hand. - Chas. Omartoucheski, Linden, N.J.
A bathtub with its drain at the end opposite the faucets. With the water running the length of the tub, it would be simpler to clean and rinse it. - John Cronn, North Platte, Nebr.
Camouflaged cookie boxes. Labeled "macaroni" or "dried beans" maybe then the goodies would stay around long enough for your Dad to get a hand in the box! - James Martin, East Orange, N.J.
Vacuum-packed safety matches. Packed in the can head down, with a striking surface inside the lid, matches would remain safe, dry and rodent-proof. - Ray Shoberg, Milwaukee.
Rodents ate safety matches back in the 1950's?
