Ever wonder what a _ looks like after you cut it perfectly in half? Wonder no more, we’ve got pictures of exactly that! Ever wonder what a human looks like cut in half? Well, we don’t have pictures of that, but a quick image search of the human anatomy post autopsy might satisfy that curiosity (we’re not responsible for any scarring that may occur).
As you’re about to see, cutting objects in half can inspire the artful imagination and give us an interesting sneak peak as to how many complex inventions are set up to work.
Locks have to be one of the most complicated, yet simply useful inventions ever created in the history of mankind! They’re a small, yet incredibly useful tool that’s everywhere you go, and it’s affecting you whether you realize it or not! Every time you’re about to leave home and want to keep the burglars out, what do you use? A lock! Every time you want some privacy to do your business in the restroom, what do you use? A lock!
Admit it, you’ve been in at least one situation where you wish you knew how to pick one of these things. Whether you’ve gotten locked out of your car, or you want to expose the secrets of your sister’s diary, a lock can be the one thing keeping you from your true desire! If you’ve ever gone through the frustration of trying to pick one of these, you’ve probably wondered how a little piece of metal could be so stubborn as to keeping you out of the valuable access of your sought object. A look at these dillies cut perfectly in half can reveal the complex nature of this invention, and the precise intricacies that the key needs to be shaped in, in order to grant your passageway. A key is like your modern day, metal password!
Who needs camouflage when you can attack with one half of a tank, and have the other half sneak around the enemy, and hit them from the rear end, how cool! You know, that sounds like a really cool idea, why are we not developing a tank that can split? Or even better yet, ride into battle in style as your tank speeds down the highway and takes on the opposition head-on, while a sidecar tank splits off to help fight the battle! Your tank with a mini tank, since we can’t exactly split and attack yet. Or can we…
3. Office Printer
Your office printer getting jammed again? Why do these things never seem to work? I mean, it should be simple enough, right? Splitting the device in half reveals just how complex the machine is. You’ve got your RGB colored inks, different tanks for black ink, the loaded (possibly heavy)paper, and the motherboard of technology that prints out your text for you.
Oh goodness, do not give me the job to cut this object in half. Whoever signed up to try and cut a grenade in half is either insane, or behind a bulletproof glass, fifty feet away, using robots to do the dirty work for them. Either way, it’s neat to see how their design can give a soldier enough time to throw the piece of metal far away from them.
12. Russian Submarine
First off, how in the world did they pull this off? Submarines are underwater war vessels designed to withstand bullets and missile fire, all while doing some sneaky swimming. I imagine a lot of dented saws were the result of giving us the image above. What’s also neat is that if you look closely, each compartment has a different use. Some look like offices for paper work, others appear to be living quarters, and some sections simply provide the pipework.
Here we come to the greatest picture on this list, a piñata! Little do most people know, there’s magic to bringing these characters to life. The newspaper and decorative paper are just the cover up to the guts and human parts… that eventually spill out as candy.
If the same were true for humans, would we be besting each other even more for candy? The world may never know! So next time you see something new in technology, or a product riddled with colors, imagine what it would look like cut in half. You may get some very unexpected results.
