30 Fruity Bananavations

From Animal-Inspired Epiphanies to Weird Measuring Devices

— February 21, 2010 — Lifestyle
Bananas are an important source of potassium, but beyond that, they are pretty prevalent part of society in regards to product inspiration and overall lifestyle. Take these fruity bananavations, for instance. You'll find everything from peelable flash drives to artistic banana renderings.

It's strange for me to think of the impact such a common fruit can have on our lives, and yet it's probably because the banana is such a common necessity that it has inspired these fruity bananavations.
