25 Navy Innovations

Midshipmen Finds, from Pea Coat Footwear to Military Hip-Hop Parodies

— November 28, 2009 — Tech
Since the Army vs. Navy football game is just around the corner, I felt it best to salute our nautical troops with a cluster that highlights the navy innovations which either help to keep them safe, or keep us stylish.

From pea coat footwear to military hip-hop parodies, check out the 25 Navy and nautical innovations below.

Implications - Military advancement has driven the march of technology and innovation since the beginning of human history, so it's no wonder to see so many products and ideas inspired by its example and influence. Any company or designer interested in seeing the future of innovation need only look at the example of the world's armed forces to see where humanity is headed.
