25 Inventions Inspired By The Human Body

 - Sep 14, 2008
The human body is a fascinating organism; its workings still aren't fully comprehended by even the most accomplished of scientists. It's no wonder that the human anatomy has inspired so many curious inventions.

In this cluster, you'll see anatomically correct edible sweet treats, fashion that reflects our innermost workings, and home decor modeled after vital organs. All are inspired in some way by the human body.

Some of these inventions are creepy, like the pin-hole cameras made with skulls. Others are cute, like the fictional anatomy of pop culture icons and cartoons. Still others are bizarre, like the handbags modeled after human heads.
