Not just any superyacht, the CF8 (cars and family in 80 meters) was designed specifically for billionaires. This 262-foot vessel comes equipped with a giant pool that transforms into a dance floor, a waterfall streaming from the upper deck, a luxurious eight-car showroom, and even a helipad. Inside, you'll find eight VIP cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets, as well as an 2,700-square-feet, jacuzzi owner's suite. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
Volcanic lava stone and carbon fiber aren't usually associated with sofas, that is unless...you're talking about Peugeot's Onyx Sofa. It's made from lacquered black carbon fiber that's been fused with hand-cut volcanic lava stone from France's Auvergne region. One caveat: this 10-foot furniture piece weighs in at a hefty 800-pounds, so moving it may be an issue. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
BAE Systems' Terrier has been dubbed the "Swiss Army Knife of combat vehicles", and rightfully so. This 32-ton machine can probe for buried explosive devices and split solid concrete with a rock hammer, all the while being remotely operated from more than a half mile away using an Xbox gamepad. Despite its size, this vehicle is no slug, as it can achieve speeds in excess of 45mph on land. Once its ts Python rocket is deployed and detonated, the system can provide a path clear of any buried explosives. "The greater wading depth and surge protection will make Terrier even better suited for use in coastal or low lying areas, where it can play an important role in disaster relief as well as combat situations. Along with the new telescopic arm and other attachments, Terrier remains the most technologically advanced and flexible combat engineer vehicle in the world. Due to the modular nature of the vehicle, it could also be quickly adapted for a range of other situations, such as clearing paths through jungle or thick foliage," said Rory Breen, a sales manager for BAE Systems.

Built in 1960, this former Atlas missile base sits on an 8.3-acre parcel of land in Lewis, New York, approximately 50-miles south of the Canadian border.

Above ground, you'll find modern furnishings, like a full kitchen, office space, bedrooms and more. It was previously on the market for just $750,000, a bargain considering that it's designed to withstand the power of a nuclear detonation.

Why bother with a bulky sled, when you can just strap on a pair of "Sled Legs". Once securely fastened, you'll be able to run towards just about any slope, jump into a kneeling position, and glide down. "Compared to skiing or snowboarding, these are much easier to learn. The low center of gravity makes it very comfortable to get the hang of. Sliding and transitioning to running to your feet, as well as jumps & tricks will take a little time to master," said its creators. Continue reading for another video and more information on how to get your own.
Phycists at at LIGO - laser interferometer gravitational-wave observatory - have detected gravitational waves for the first time in known history. Einstein's theory states the fabric of space-time can become curved by any massive event in the universe, such as two black holes merging or stars exploding, and these curves ripple out as gravitational waves, similar to dropping a stone in a pond. When these ripples reach Earth, they're tiny (1 billionth of the diameter of an atom), which explains why it's taken so long to find them. Click here for more pictures of the LIGO laboratory.

Most drones aren't the most aesthetically pleasing, but this Imperial Shuttle by Adam Woodworth, definitely is. Since paper models are a specialty of his, hand-crafting the chassis from foam was not an issue, as the printed plans were later glued on using 3M77 spray adhesive. After 4-months of hard work, the drone was complete, complete with transforming wings. Click here for more pictures of the shuttle. Continue reading for another video of it in-action during the daytime.
Rheinmetall Defense's Oerlikon Skyshield consists of one 10 kW fiber high-energy laser and a beam-forming unit. Commercial off-the-shelf fiber lasers were modified for an air defense role. The beam-forming unit provides diffraction-limited beam focusing, target imaging and fine tracking of the target. By utilizing this beam-superimposing technology, the company has managed to concentrate the power of single laser beams into one small spot, enabling not only superimposition of multiple laser beams on a single gun platform, but also superimposition of multiple gun platforms, for almost unlimited (e.g. 100 kW and more) power output.
