Summer’s Almost Over…Time for One Last Beach Day

Posted by innovativeip on August 19, 2010

With Summer drawing to a close, it seems only fitting that today’s Patent of the Day should be a beach chair.  U.S. Patent no. 4,606,086 was issued on August 19, 1986 for a “Lounge Chair for Reading”.

Today's Patent of the Day

As you may note, the lounge chair has an opening for your face so that you can lay on your stomach and read.  Out of curiousity, I did a brief search and found that several versions of this type of chair are being sold.  And, if you are wondering what happens when you turn back over and find yourself with no support for the back of your head, there is a model with a flip-up pillow to cover the hole that solves that problem.  Known as the “Ostrich Chair”, you can find it at

Of course, if you’d like to read more about the version in today’s patent, you can find it at  Enjoy!
