Gamucci, the e-cigarette

Finally, every smoker’s dream came true, a cigarette that’s not bad for you.

E-cigarette reviews say Gamucci is a device that looks, feels and tastes like a real cigarette but doesn’t hurt you, the ones around you or the environment. It’s a rechargeable device that uses sophisticated micro-electronic technology to deliver a true smoking experience, only without the tobacco smoke and tar that contain over 4.000 toxins. It contains water, propylene glycol, nicotine and tobacco scent and, instead of exhaling smoke, you exhale harmless vapors. So your body receives all the nicotine it craves but without all the other nasty stuff, it’s a dream come true and best of all you can legally smoke it indoors.

One rechargeable Gamucci cartridge is the equivalent of 20 cigarettes and the device’s battery lasts a whole day, when used with normal use (whatever that means).

Pierre Cardin’s bubble house

Some people just can’t stand living in a normal house and Pierre Cardin is one of them.

As the story goes, Pierre Cardin was looking to buy a nice house on the Cote d’Azur, but was horrified by all the unoriginal designs that he had seen and that didn’t match his avant-garde fashion designs . That one day he stumbled upon a construction site, where an architect by the name of Antti Lovag was building a bubble-house for some industrialist who happened to have died. Cardin was thrilled to acquire the almost finished residence that finally satisfied his exigent taste.

Not everyone liked Lovag‘s creation when it was finished in 1990, many went as far as to call it Crazy-house, but now it has become a historic monument.

World’s largest container ship

I’m sure most people think of container ships as just ships that carry containers and nothing more. Now I don’t know how many of you have actually seen one but these beasts can be quite impressive. And the most impressive is the Emma Maersk, the biggest container transporter in the world.

With a declared capacity of 11,000 TEU, the ‘Emma Maersk‘ is able to handle a significantly greater number of containers than any other ship currently in operation. It has a length of 397 metres, over 31 metres longer than the next longest container ship, the Maersk ‘G’ classes, and a width of 57 metres, 15 metres wider than any other container ship. If the containers on board were lined up end to end, they would stretch approximately 42 miles.

The vessel is longer than the height of some well-known landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, which measures 320 meters, and the Empire State Building, at 381 meters. It is four times the length of a normal football pitch.

Home-made submarine

This impressive underwater vehicle was built by a man living in St-Petersburg, Russia. It is officially registered as the smallest submarine in the country and what is most impressive is that it can travel underwater from St-Petersburg to Helsinky and back, without having to make any stops.

This one man, home-made submarine reaches a top-speed of four knots. Not bad!

Tension ceiling handling a flood

Until these images caught my eye a few days ago, I didn’t even know what a tension ceiling did exactly. Of course I was never really interested in finding out, but now that I did, I’m actually thinking of getting one. Floods can be really nasty, and all that work to repair a flooded ceiling can be really exhausting so why bother, I’d rather have a balloon as a ceiling doing all the work. Take a look, it really works!

Thrill ride in the sky

How would you feel if you were hanging on a metal arm atop of the eighth-tallest building in the world, the Stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas? I know I’d be terrified, but if you’re one of those thrill seekers that will gladly swim in Devil’s Pool, you might like this.

The X-Scream is, according to many, the ultimate fun ride in the world. Those willing to risk a heart attack are loaded in a cart and hoisted high into the air before the track plunges into a 30 degree angle. Just when it reaches 30mph, the carts comes to a full stop at the end of the track, leaving nothing but 300meters of air between passengers and the ground…now that I don’t want to try! I don’t care about their fancy security measures, that include titanium restraint bars and a manual return mechanism in case of power failure, I ‘m just not getting on that thing!

Star Trek home cinema

Built by Gary Reighn in a 19×14 foot room in Philadelphia, this home cinema is a good replica of the Enterprise’s bridge. It’s actually quite impressive what a man can do with a bit of hard work and around 15.000 dollars if he’s passionate about something, even if that something is a sci-fi series

The cinema comes complete with a Sony LCD projector, a 7.1 Polk sound system, a Velodyne subwoofer, Yamaha receiver, Bravo DVD player, Philips Pronto remote and Bass Shakers beneath two of the theater’s chair.

The flying fuselage tube

The Stipa-Caproni prototype aircraft was basically a venturi tube fitted with 120hp de Havilland Gypsy III engine and a propeller at the front end of the tube. It was built by Caproni in 1932 but it never went into mass production because…well, it didn’t really fly; the original test report says the strange plane only flew for a distance of 500m at a height of 5/6 meters. A unique replica of the odd looking flying machine is owned by Lynette Zuccoli, from Brisbane, Australia.
