Late last year, NASA asked Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing to send in designs for the airplanes of the future, the planes that would rule the skies in 2025. Conditions for the designs were fairly practical; NASA wanted the planes to be low on noise, low on fuel consumption, and with cleaner exhausts. The planes are supposed to be able to fly at 85% of the speed of sound, ferry about 50,000 pounds to 100,000 pounds of payload (human or cargo), and have a range of 7000 miles.

No surprizes here, as the name clearly implies, this is a chair in the shape of an octopus.

For fans of the game, the Super Mario chess set is indeed a collectible. It’s Mario and friends on one end, facing bowser and his minions on the other side. Interestingly, it’s Mario and Luigi for the role of king and queen. I’d swear I expected Princess Peach there, but never did I think I’d see Luigi there.
Lasers to pop popcorns, that’s how the cool kids do it these days. Or at least the cool kids with a hell lot of time on their hands, because popping a single kernel takes about a minute. It’s cool but we’re too impatient for this method.
Suren Manvelyan created these amazingly cool, close-up photographs of the human eyes.
Times sure have changed, you can no longer duel with guns like the good ol’ days of the wild wild west. You may as well fight the duel with the iPhone. It may not look like a gun, but there’s nothing wrong with keeping it in a holster, just make sure you don’t put beer in there as well.
