Chester Carlson & the Ball-Point Pen

Chester Carlson, the inventor of the xerographic process for copying documents, might also have invented the ball-point pen. After coming up with the idea, however, Carlson dropped the concept at the early stages of development because he thought it would fail to work.

[The Hungarian brothers George and Laszlo Biro invented the ball-point pen in 1938.]
