Hobby Car

Unlike other amphibious vehicles, the Hobbycar B612, first introduced at the 1992 Paris Motor Show, is a mid-engined, jet-drive, forward-control four-seater, designed to look like a pick-up. You steer on dry land using a steering wheel, but in water, control is by joystick. Its Peugeot diesel engine is transversely-mounted amidships, and powers both the terrestrial four-wheel drive system, as well as the twin 150 kg-thrust hydrojets. All production models also have an electrically-retractable windshield, and the Citroen-sourced hydro-pneumatic suspension allows a range of height-adjustability. Unfortunately, only 52 B612s were built in the few years of production. Click here to vew the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

10th Planet

Researchers believe there's a Mars-sized planet lurking at the edge of the solar system. That's right, Kat Volk and Renu Malhotra studied the orbits of objects in the Kuiper Belt, the asteroid field where Pluto is located, and discovered that objects orbit at an incline relative to the rest of the solar system. These unusual orbits normally can be explained by the gravitational influence of nearby planets, but there are no existing planets that could have caused this kind of tilt.
