Want to get sucked into oblivion?!

Well remember those vacuum tube networks that businesses used to use to send papers across large buildings? Hyperloop is basically that, but big enough to shoot people cross-country at amazing speeds.

First, the tube is six feet wide, and is maintained as a low-pressure environment, to prevent the passenger pod from touching the tube, it’ll float slightly above it, either on a cushion of air or using magnetic levitation.

Because it doesn’t have to deal with as much air resistance, Hyperloop is expected to hit 750MPH, more than twice as fast as the Central Japan Railway’s record-breaking 366MPH speed run.

Go-IN the movies!?



I know what you’re thinking boys, but not THOSE movies. 😉

Augmented Reality is going to be huge according to John Gaeta the creative director of ILMxLab an immersive entertainment-focused company — showing off its insane capabilities at Sundance Film Festivals experimental New Frontier Exhibit showing off “Holo Cinema” Think “Obi Wan you’re my only hope” but bigger. It’s an AR installation that places viewers within the sandy world of Episode VII’s Jakku.

The technology relies on a pair of lightweight, sensor-laden active shutter glasses. These glasses, in combination with a motion-capture system which are used to track positioning, let viewers watch the inhabitants of Jakku via hologram.

The company is already at work on consumer-facing projects that could accompany the studio’s next blockbuster films. So when Episode VIII of Star Wars hits theaters, according to Gaeta, there’s a very good chance it’ll arrive with a Holo-Cinema version that you’d pay through the nose to go see. But lets face it you definitely would. Look how cool it is! 

Drone Racing!

It’s boring being an adult, look at how cool these toys are!! Big boys and our drone racing, drone flying, drone everything toys!! These crazy people are racing drones now!

Skilled pilots fly quad-copter drones through real life courses at speeds up to 120mph. The drones are custom built for speed, agility, and performance & these crazy son’s of naughty words are real life pilots! Steering from the point of view of the drone by wearing First Person View (FPV) goggles that display a live image transmitted by an onboard camera.

Flying a drone competitively at high speed in FPV is an intense, immersive experience.

I don’t know about you but I want a go NOW!

There’s another type of party that you can have down ‘there’!! – The Vaginal Soundsystem Babypod Lets Pregnant Women Rock Out With Their Foetuses!!

Apparently audio stimulation may help in foetuses develop in the womb & now theres a solution, that doesn’t involve stretching your expensive Beats around an expectant mother’s stomach.

Instead use the Babypod, its basically a tiny speaker with an aux jack at one end for your iPhone and a small bead speaker which goes, well you can guess where.

Babypod claims the clearer audio “stimulates the vocalisation of babies before birth through music and encourages their neural development.”

There’s no word on if there’s a male equivalent.

Bionic Eye Spy!

Boys. We are one step closer to Terminator Eyes!

Now its not entirely 100% a bionic eye but Ray FIynn 80, has dry age related Macular degeneration, a disease that affects mainly the elderly & it happens when cells in part of the retina become damaged which causes the loss of his central vision. He relies entirely on his peripheral vision.

Surgens have attached a retinal implant around the back of Ray’s right eye, a world first.

He wears special glasses, which have a built in video camera which is then wirelessly transmitted to the implant that is on his eye, then the electrodes stimulate the remaining cells in the eye sending messages to the brain to interpret.

He now can see but not 100% like you or I, he can see shapes and distinct patterns like a door frame or a set of stairs. Within time Ray should be able to learn how to interpret the images that are being sent to him via the implant more effectively.
