The MiG-29 is a twin-engine jet fighter aircraft designed in the Soviet Union, first entering service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983.

Why is this house so tall? Well, the owner wanted to maintain the beautiful mountain views, so he kept on building vertically as the trees around the house got taller.

We have seen the future of artificial intelligence, and it includes an advanced algorithm that can learn to paint in the style of any artist. That's right, researchers at the University of Tubingen inserted series of old masters into the system, and it turned a modern day photo into paintings in the style of some of the world's best known artists. "Thus far the algorithmic basis of this process is unknown and there exists no artificial system with similar capabilities. Here we introduce an artificial system based on a Deep Neural Network that creates artistic images of high perceptual quality. The system uses neural representations to separate and recombine content and style of arbitrary images, providing a neural algorithm for the creation of artistic images," said the researchers. Continue reading for another video on deep neural networks.

Another day, another insane LEGO creation, and this time, it's from brick master Michal Kazmierczak's. He spent countless hours recreating the Gates of Erebor from The Hobbit, complete with a grand interior, using 120,000 pieces. Let's just say that images don't do it justice, but some of these shots are beautiful to say the least. For those who don't follow the series, the Gate of Erebor is basically the wide arched main entrance of the Dwarf-realm of Erebor. The entrance was at the head of the valley formed by the two southern ridges of rock thrust out from the southern slopes of Erebor. Continue reading for more.
Heikki Karna, a retired air traffic controller from Finland, was tired of traditional axes because they are "dangerous and hard to work with." So, he created the LeverAxe, which sports a handle made of engineering compound, characterized by high mechanical strength, stiffness and thermal resistance. That's not all, it's hollow inside, making the LeverAxe even lighter, thus allowing you to easily build speed when in action. Unlike traditional axes, the head is attached from the side, not the center, which alters its center of gravity. After you hit a log, the head will break in few millimeters and then stops. At the same time counterweight on the right side of the head forces the axe to fall sideways, splitting the log apart with ease. Continue reading for an ultra slow motion video of it in-action.
