54 Pig-Inspired Innovations

From Bacon Mania to Glow-in-the-Dark Swine

— February 6, 2009 — Lifestyle
Pigs are one of the most beloved farm animals in existence for a number of reasons. For carnivores, they're a high-protein, low-waste food that is completely edible from snout to tail once butchered. For scientists, pigs are intelligent creatures that can prove significant in stem cell research. And for everyone else, they're the sources of bacon, one of the best-beloved ingredients we've seen in awhile.

These porky innovations prove that the pig is an immensely important animal, whether it's used to produce bacon strips for bras or adapted into interior design to inspire creative individuals.
