  • World’s Largest Aircraft Unveiled In Britain

    At 302 feet, the recently unveiled Airlander is the world’s largest aircraft. The helium-filled airship began as a joint project for the US Army from Hybrid Air Vehicles and Northrup Grumman, but after budget cuts last year, the vehicle was headed to the scrap yard. The Army offered to sell it to HAV for $44 million, but HAV didn’t have the cash. They eventually settled on $301,000, less than 1% of what the US Army paid for it. Hmmm…suddenly these budget problems are making a lot of sense. With the project back in HAV’s hands, it was renamed the Airlander and the prototype was re-unveiled in Britain. No longer an Army spy-drone, HAV now advertise its utility for humanitarian aid, providing communications, broadcasting sporting events, and surveillance. The Airlander can stay in the air for up to 3 weeks, carry loads up 11 tons, and set down on land, water, or ice. An even longer passenger version is planned for next year. And the coolest thing about the HAV Airlander? One of the investor’s is Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of Iron Maiden and pilot of the band’s jet, “Ed Force One.”

  • Walk Around Jerry Seinfeld’s Apartment with Virtual Reality Goggles

    Artist Greg Miller was new to 3-D modeling, so he sought out to give himself a simple project. A project that would eventually gain him internet glory in the form of Seinfeld’s famous New York City apartment. After sourcing a few initial projects Greg decided to use a platform that was simple and familiar to not only himself, but the audience he’d be sharing it with. Why not start with argualbly the most famous fictional apartment in NYC history, Jerry Seinfeld’s one bedroom. “I started by scouring the Internet for screen shots of Jerry’s apartment but that didn’t yield much. Eventually I resorted to screen-capping streaming episodes so I could get detailed images of the various items around the set. I tried to be faithful to the shows original props and it’s era, but some things were near impossible to Google. I did a lot of research and tried to find images of the original products used in the show, and modeled around those dimensions, rather than relying solely on blurry screen shots. I found lots of good footage of the bathroom in the episode “The Barber,” during the part that Newman enters Jerry’s bathroom to find a hair sample.” more »

  • The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly From The Geneva Motor Show [32 HQ Photos]

    Each year in March, the International Geneva Motor Show is held at the Geneva Palexpo convention center. Since the first show in 1905, Geneva has been the show for automobile manufacturers to unveil their most ambitious concepts.

  • Niagara Falls Has Completely Frozen Over [13 HQ Photos]

    This Polar Vortex has gone too far. With low temperatures gripping the East Coast Niagara Falls has frozen over. It happens nearly every year and believe it or not the Weather Channel says it was legal to walk across the falls on the ice bridge that formed until 1912. We’ve all heard the stories of tourists riding down the falls in wooden barrels in the early 1900s. But did you know that in the past when the falls were frozen, visitors were allowed to walk across the falls on the “ice bridge” created by extreme cold, according to Gizmodo? This dangerous activity was banned after three tourists died when the ice cracked on February 4, 1912. We went through the internet archives and found a few incredible pictures of the falls frozen over.

  • New Marijuana Study Confirms Everyone Knows You’re High And You Will Be Stoned Forever [Video]

  • Miserable Men Forced To Go Shopping [51 Photos]

    Here we see the male of the species in the female’s natural habitat, the shopping mall. The female abandons the male, leaving him to guard the goods she has gathered, while she continues to hunt. Occasionally she will return, wearing a different skin, asking the male’s opinion. He will answer “looks great, hun” or face certain death. While the female is away, the male will be consumed in thought, worrying about the money the female is spending, before exhausting himself and falling asleep. Sometimes the males congregate and pretend to look busy on their smartphones while intermittent grunts of “how many pairs of shoes does she need?” and “Mets are looking good this year” are uttered in an attempt to bond. This ritual, know to last for 8 hours or more, can be further examined at the “miserable_men” Instagram.

  • Hoverboards Are Real… Or So Says Tony Hawk

    A virtually unknown company named HuvR released video today of what looks to be a real life prototype of a hover-board delivered to us by Christopher Lloyd in a DeLorean. Tony Hawk, Moby, Terrell Owens and Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd were amongst the advocates pushing this product. The video is obviously suspect, watching celebrities and ex-pro athletes float about on the board with what looks like a chest harness strapped to their body. The company is obviously fake, but the back ended question is why? The Verge notes “Is it all a carefully crafted teaser for Tony Hawk’s upcoming mobile game? This seems like a very elaborate production if the end goal is boosting App Store sales.” which could be a strong and most predictable possibility at this point, but their guess is as good as ours. For now, I guess we can all just enjoy the ride they’re taking us on. WEEEEEEEE.

  • Ukraine’s Forgotten Tank Graveyard [12 Photos]

    In the Ukrainian city of Kharkov, 300 miles east of capital city Kiev and 30 miles form the Russian border, lies a “graveyard” filled with hundreds of Soviet-era tanks. 18-year-old adventurous photographer Patvel Itkin heard about the site from a friend and spent months trying to find its exact location. The area is guarded, but Itkin was able to sneak his way in and capture these photographs while walking the grounds for about two hours. The site was originally a manufacturing plant, producing more than 60 tanks and 55 engines per month, but has been mostly dormant since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. There are still a handful of mechanics on site who repair modern tanks, but the old tanks have been long abandoned. With the recent events in Ukraine, the “graveyard” may soon find new life.

  • Transforming Bay Bridge Scrap Into Self-Sufficient Housing

    The old Oakland Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is headed to the scrapyard, but some enterprising folks in the Bay Area are hoping to make better use of the historic bridge. While some parts will be find their way to parks and museums, most will be junked, but not if Bay Bridge House can help. They aim to use concrete, I-beams, trusses, wires, girders, and more from the old bridge to construct self-sufficient housing for the Bay Area. The Bay Bridge House designs call for a modern contemporary house with a green roof system and solar panels to provide power, and rainwater reclamation to store water for use with the green roof and sewage systems. In addition to the single family house, each design includes 1 or 2 condos or BNB rooms the owner can use to generate income, making the houses completely self-sufficient. It’s a great idea, especially for a state like California that is heavily burdened with energy demands. For more information on the project and the Bay Bridge in general, check out the Bay Bridge House.

  • Kurt Cobain’s Stuff For Sale On Craigslist

Thanks to a former roommate of Cobain’s, these fine pieces of music history can all be yours! The roommate, a former bass player for Seattle band Gruntruck, has placed an ad on Craigslist with the odd mix of items. You’d think he’d try to cash in on the anniversary with outrageous prices, but they’re not that crazy. The skis are $80, the phone, which is actually pretty rad, is $55, and the Tomy game, Kingman, which still works, is only $25. It’s actually a pretty good deal for a superfan and the roommate claims to have photo proof of Kurt using each of the items. He also says that soon he will put some of Kurt’s clothes and magazines for sale. Wait…did he really hold on to a bunch of gross old flannel and magazines for over 20 years? What a creepy roommate.
