    Seabreacher X, A Submersible Designed To Look Like A Shark

    Next time you think you see a shark jumping out of the water, take a closer look.  Why?  It just might be the Seabreacher X, a high-speed submersible that’s been intentionally made to look like a great white shark, complete with dorsal fins, gill arches and rows of meat-tearing sharp teeth. Created by Innespace, the recreational vehicle follows in the tradition of the pair’s previous projects, which include a submarine that looks like a dolphin.  This time, though, they shed [...]

  • AK-1000 Is The World’s Largest Tidal Turbine

    AK-1000 Is The World’s Largest Tidal Turbine

    While it looks like a missile ready to run giant robot invaders to the ground (or a secret futuristic bicopter drone), the AK-1000 actually isn’t even a military weapon.  Instead, it’s a monstrous tidal turbine that will harness choppy waters into usable electricity. Created by Singapore-based Atlantis Resources Corporation, the beastly structure isn’t an oddly-styled wind turbine as you’d probably first guess.  Instead, the single installation is meant to use the turbulent waters around Scotland’s Orkney Islands to generate power [...]

    Researchers Confirm Rubik’s Cube Can Be Solved In 20 Moves Or Less From Any Position

    I’ll be honest, I’ve only solved a Rubik’s Cube once.  Heck, I even used my years of apprenticeship in voodoo magic to do that, so it doesn’t count.  I’ve long ago conceded that I’m not stupid – my brain just hasn’t evolved so far as to enable me to solve this otherworldly conundrum.  Leave it to Google’s computers to make me feel like shit: they’ve done the calculations and every Rubik’s cube position can be solved in only 20 moves [...]

    Sharpie Liquid Pencil Can Be Erased For Three Days, Becomes Permanent After

Clad and styled like a pen, the writing tool makes the magic happen using [...]

  • Dragonfly, A Personal Helicopter Powered By Rockets

    Dragonfly, A Personal Helicopter Powered By Rockets

    A personal helicopter powered by rockets.  That sounds awesome, right?  I mean, that’s like the same level as predator robots created by aliens who happen to be zombies dreaming a dream within a dream.  The Dragonfly’s description, of course, sounds much more menacing than it actually is – not that it isn’t a pretty special rotorcraft all on its own. Measuring a mere 8 inches long  and weighing 1.5 pounds apiece, the dual-rocket engine setup is far from intimidating.  But [...]

    Phantom Eye Spy Plane Can Fly For Up To Four Days Straight

    Most spy planes are built for stealth.  Boeing’s recently unveiled Phantom Eye, on the other hand, boasts impressive endurance, bringing with it the ability to fly non-stop for as long as four days. According to the company, the aircraft’s secret lies in its lighter and more powerful hydrogen fuel system.  Ditching traditional jet fuels in favor of everyone’s second favorite water component (let’s face it, we’d rather have oxygen in a head-to-head battle) apparently offer benefits that go beyond the [...]
