From Robot Heads to Post-Mortem Advertising Endorsements

Albert Einstein’s contributions to the world of science are immense, but the brainy physicist has also become a pop culture icon, which is why it isn’t surprising that Einstein inspirations come in many eclectic forms. From being an art muse to the target of humorous memes, it seems the man who uncovered “E=MC^2” resonates with people from all walks of life and is still relevant even decades after his death.

A few standout Einstein inspirations include robots that are now being created with heads in Albert’s likeness, toy figurines that emphasize the physicist’s Tim Burton-esque hairdo and an exhibit that will be showcasing sculptures based on Mr. Einstein’s brain. My personal favorite Einstein inspiration however comes in the form of a photo, which has taken the man’s out-of-control hair and placed it on his chin to resemble some kind of whimsical beard.
