From Backwards Day Fashions to Inside Out Autos

— December 6, 2009 — Tech
I know what you are thinking. If they are reversed innovations, then they wouldn't be innovations at all. They would be a outovations and, therefore, quite lame. Well let me tell you something:

Shut it.

From backwards day fashion to inside out autos, checked out the 43 reversed innovations which have been flipped, backtracked and inverted for your viewing pleasure.

Implications - People like when things are different, and these interesting innovations definitely cut to the chase. Some are absolutely terrifying such as the reverse Photoshopped art and the inside-out stuffed animals, while others are pretty awesome like the board game shoes. Whatever interests you most, this collection will surely shock you in one way or another.
