F-35 Joint Strike Fightermobil

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Dutch artist Arthur van Poppel created a perfect replica of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and you’ll be happy to know it’s not just a replica, but a cool contraption. Built to scale and in incredible detail the JSF replica comes equipped with a mean sound system, monitors in the cockpit and special effects like spewing water smoke or confetti. It’s also drivable although it doesn’t come close to the F-35‘s real speed, the only things it can’t do is fly and shoot missiles.

Bad Cases of Overtuning

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I love modded cars as much as the next car enthusiast, but only when the modding is done with a bit of taste. And this clearly isn’t one of those cases. I know they probably went way overboard on purpose, to create the most outrageous rides they possibly could, but man are these things wack or what!

TREKOL – The Floating Car

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It may not look as good as your favorite SUVs, but TREKOL 39294 is more special than the usual service utility vehicle. What separates it from other cars is its ability to float on water at a speed of 10 km per hour, allowing scientists to access places they could only get to by boat. The TREKOL 39294 uses 6 unique tubeless tires that allow it to run through sand, snow and marshes without sinking even with 8 people on board and fully loaded.

The TREKOL is road legal, it has a fiberglass body and can withstand temperatures ranging from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius. This monster of a car is environment-friendly, its tires leave no rut and don’t damage the soil ( the pressure on the soil is between 0,1-0,4 kilos per square centimeter).

Chocolate Hills of The Philippines

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Located on the island of Bohol, in the Philippines, lies a special attraction called The Chocolate Hills. It consists of 1268 cone-like hills spread over 50 square kilometers. The hills are green until the end of the dry season and then become chocolate brown, hence the name Chocolate Hills.

These limestone hills have a height between 30m and 120m and they are mainly concentrated in the center of Bohol Island. there are many theories of they were formed,  some say they are the results of coral deposits rising, while others say they were shaped by erosion and strong winds.

Legend says The Chocolate Hills are the rocks thrown by two giants that competed in a rock throwing chalenge to prove which one was stronger. They threw large boulders for several days after which they became friends and left the island together leaving the rocks as proof of their competition.

Wetas – The Giant Crickets

18 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Cook Strait Giant Wetas are a species of giant insects that grow to be 10cm long and around 27 grams heavy. Just so you can get an idea, these bugs are about the size of a city rat. They have been extinct on the mainland of New Zealand for more than a century, but the authorities are trying to reintroduce the species to the area, and the first 100 Wetas have been brought to Kraori Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellington, in 2007.

You may think Giant Wetas are hideous and dangerous but the truth is they are passive creatures that feed on fruit and plant and they are less destructive than their smaller cricket brethren. The Wetas are protected from rats and stoats that led to their extinction 100 years ago.

World’s Most Expensive Grill

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

While some love to tune their cars and turn them into eye-candy, others are more passionate about their grills. Like this man here, he spent around $15,000 to make a smoking grill. Complete with high quality speakers, amplifiers and even a touchscreen display, this grill is one of a kind in the whole world. It makes a mean steak too.

Bottle Temple in Thailand

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Wat Pa Maha Kaew Temple is the only temple in the world build out of glass bottles and bottle caps. It all began in 1984 when the Buddhist monks started gathering bottles to decorate their shelters. The lovely bottle art-work they created attracted more and more visitors that began donating bottles, until there were enough to build an entire building.

Translated as “Temple of Million BottlesWat Pa Maha Kaew is located  in Siasaket province, about 370 miles northeast of Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok. There are approximately 1,5 millionglass bottles incorporated in the temple complex,that includes glass shelters, crematorium and even glass toilets.

The bottles make for a surprisingly easy to maintain building material, they let the light in and they don’t fade. The monks are still collecting glass bottles to build even more structures at Wat Pa Maha Kaew.

Cool Uses of a Garbage Container

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Here are some ideas of how you could use a garbage container if littering stops being such a big issue. I like the idea of turning it into a pool, if you can manage to get the garbage stench out of it. But with littering a very big problem worldwide I think everyone should use garbage cans and containers for their original purpose, that would make our world a lot cleaner.

Becoming a Millionaire is Easy!

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you live in Zimbabwe, that is. Due to the country’s hyperinflation rate of over 231,000,000% a year, the financial authorities were forced to release larger and larger bills in order to help people buy the simplest things without carrying bricks of bills  with them. When the $10,000,000 bill was released early this year, it was worth about $4 US, but it soon became as worthless as the previous bills and now you can find the 100 billion dollars bill which you can use to buy…3 eggs.

When people want to go to a restaurant they are again forced to carry mountains of money with them. This all began in the year 2000, when president Mugabe came to power and transformed the whole country into a giant agricultural field. Now the inflation is through the roof, 80% of the population is unemployed and a third of the population has left the country. At least they can take pride in the fact that they have the highest denomination bills in the world.

IC3 – Intelligent Cutlery

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you’re careful about what and how much you it, than IC3 is the perfect gadget for you. It’s made-up of a computerized handle and 3 interchangeable eating tools: a fork, a knife and a spoon, each with their own special features. The fork measures food composition, such as fat, sugar or protein levels, the spoon weighs your bites and the knife acts as a thermometer, taking temperature readings from your food. Together these three do a great job of replacing the normal nutritionist.

The IC3 Cutlery has been presented and is still on display at the Designparcours 2008 exhibition in Munich, Germany.
