Bangalore: “Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.” Leonardo Da Vinci.



Here are 10 inventions that will make nature turn tail and run!



#10 Billy Bob Teeth:



Put these on and walk into a party one day and it is a guarantee that you will be an instant hit for all the wrong reasons and probably be scarred for life. At $9.99 who cares if you are missing a few teeth or your gums are showing a little or the fact that you make Halloween arrive early? The hilly “Billy Bob Teeth” born out of a partnership between a dental student and an ex college football player sold over 15 million units since 1994, and as of 1998 had grossed $1.8 million. How is that for a toothy grin?
