13 Hidden Designs That Were Right Under Our Noses The Whole Time

Isn't it so funny that as kids, we were curious about everything? We would open things up and look inside with wonder. I guess as you get older, that childhood curiosity tends to fade away. And we pretty much think we know everything. Am I right?

Well, that's the wrong way to look at things, because as it turns out, there are plenty of hidden gems out there.

1. This Escalator

Let me ask you a question: have you ever seen an escalator being built? Well, if not, now's your chance. Is this something you would have expected? I definitely don't think so. I don't know how they do it, but it looks so cool, no?

2. This Lighter Inside Of A Lighter

If you ever wondered what the inside of a BBQ lighter looks like, here's your chance. As it turns out, there's a smaller lighter inside of it. How interesting, huh?

3. This Grape Surprise

This person bit into a grape only to discover that there was another fully grown grape inside of it. Isn't it so fascinating when that happens? I guess these two grapes are some sort of twins, huh?

4. This Plant

Are you as fascinated by plants as I am? Well, then you're going to get a real kick out of this. This is an actual inside of a plant. I would never have expected to see that.

5. This Phone Case

One would assume that the inside of your phone case could be lined with something else. Isn't that right? Well, in this case, the person who looked deeper found an old toothpaste box stashed in there.

6. These Candies

Don't be too surprised if you find out your favorite candies are only coated with flavor. That's exactly what this person discovered when they found a clear and unflavored Mike and Ike candy. Wow, I didn't know that.

7. This USB Cable

Have you ever looked to see what is hiding inside of a USB cable? I have to admit I haven't. And I'm quite surprised by this unusual and quite pretty pattern here. That is so interesting, right?

8. This Fire Hydrant

If you ever wondered what the inside of a fire hydrant looks like, I'm here to satisfy your curiosity, ha, ha! What do you think of that? It's pretty neat. Am I right? Such an interesting system.

9. This Pinball Machine

Who here loved playing on those old-school pinball machines? They're fun, aren't they? I never thought one of them would look like this inside. Wow, just one mistake, and something won't work right. Isn't this so cool?

10. This Pregnancy Test

If you've ever taken one of those digital pregnancy tests, you might have wondered how it worked. As it turns out, it's just a test reader inside. Wow, you would think it was something more sophisticated, huh?

11. This Traffic Light

At first, I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking at, but then the person who posted this picture on Reddit said it was a traffic light. I always wondered who's got the meticulous attention to detail to do something like that.

12. This Dog's Toy

I've seen this a lot with toys for dogs or cats. It seems that they usually stuff them with other toys, which is a good thing, right? When the animal rips it, at least you've got another toy to give to them.

13. This Rubik's Cube

If you've ever been frustrated to tear by a Rubik's cube, it's sort of comforting in a way to see what one looks like when it's been disassembled. See? It's just a toy, it can't hurt you — but it can drive you crazy, ha, ha!

I hope I have piqued your curiosity at least a little with these fascinating pictures here.
