Immaturity is a part of life that while most of the time is something you want to grow out of, there are times where it is just downright fun. Its always nice to get a good laugh even though you know you are way too old for it to be funny to you and you dont want anyone to see you chuckling to yourself. This is sometimes true when seeing something that looks like something that it shouldn't. It happens all the time, someone designs a product and puts in so much work on how it will work operationally and thinks the design looks great because they only see it for that one particular function. They lose sight that it could look like something completely different.
When designing products, there are a few things you want to make sure it doesn't come out looking like.
Obvious pitfalls are genitalia and "naughty" bits of the human body. If you can generally ensure that your product doesn't look like boobs or butts, you're pretty much in the clear.
But it's probably a good idea to make sure when you're making a pool float that it doesn't look like an enormous maxi pad.
Something that this float-designer apparently found difficulty avoiding. Which I really don't understand. I mean, I've never once used a sanitary pad before, but I know a feminine hygiene product when I see one and that, my friends, is a feminine hygiene product.
Twitter, of course, was tickled pink by the design choice.
Some just wanted to understand how this design ever made it to final production.
But mostly, they just had jokes.
And someone pointed out an interesting design congruity Tesla shares with IUDs.
That can never be unseen.
