World Trade Center Elevator

The Empire State Building and Top of the Rock both offer stunning views of NYC, but One World Observatory, the $100 million, three-story attraction atop One World Trade Center, may top them all. How? The Sky Pod elevators, which transport guests up to the 102nd floor in a mere 47 seconds. During the ascent, the displays show a virtual time-lapse of the city's skyline from the 1500s to the present; the Twin Towers appear briefly, but since more than 500 years flashes by in less than a minute, you'll miss them if you blink. Once you've left the observatory, the elevator screens show the exterior of One World Trade Center as you descend, similar to a virtual helicopter ride to the bottom.

Jet Thruster Motorcycle

It's not uncommon for motorcycle riders to go for spirited rides through the canyons, but what happens when they lean a bit too far into a curve and then hit a patch of loose gravel? They'll slide out of course, and hopefully, into a safe spot outside of harm's way. However, that isn't always the case, and thus Bosch's anti-skid jet thruster system was born. When installed, the sensors automatically detect when a slide is occurring, and then triggers a mechanism that fires gas from an airbag-type device to correct the slide, bringing the bike back upright. The first two motorcycles to feature this technology will be the Ducati Multistrada and the KTM 1290 Super Duke. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery. Continue reading for the five most popular viral videos today, including one of a crazy spike tool used to pierce industrial bags.
