27 Spider-Inspired Innovations

— November 9, 2008 — Unique
There is a lot more to spiders than their clever webs, which are works of art in themselves, as the gallery proves. Although this cluster does include several designs that are inspired by spiderwebs, we've also featured examples of the humble spider's other subtle influences. From fashion and design to the iconic Spider-Man of Marvel Comics, the spider is one of nature's most enduring images.

Whether you love them or hate them, there is something spidery in here for everyone.
