46 Interesting Inflatable Innovations

From Blow-Up Skateboards to Inflatable Solar Panels

— February 25, 2009 — Art & Design
With spaces getting smaller, people are looking toward alternatives for bulky objects. Particularly for, but not limited to, household items, blow-up objects are proving to be light-weight, collapsible, and affordable substitutes for everyday objects. 

Inflatable innovations also speak to our desire for change, allowing us to move objects around more easily. 

This cluster highlights unique blow-up innovations, from inflatable faux antique furniture and teapots to fashion like blow-up bikini tops and clothes hangers. It also includes more peculiar items like a Sarah Palin doll, inflatable pubs (so you can have your beer anywhere) and for the green-minded, inflatable solar panels.
