Animorphic 3D Drawing

These drawings may appear to jump off the page, but it's all just a clever illusion by artist Nikola Culjic from Serbia. Completely self-taught, these illusions are made possible using a variety of animorphic techniques that only appear when an image is viewed from a certain angle. Believe it or not, these results were all achieved within 3-years. Unfortunately, none of his works are for sale, as he intends 'to make his name a brand for 3D.'

Line-X Coating

Line-X is essentially a spray-on coating, used mostly on truck beds, that makes nearly anything indestructible, including pumpkins. What is it made of? Scientifically speaking, it's a mixture of two different molecules: Diphenylmethane-4,4'-diisocyanate or MDI and alpha-(2-aminomethylethyl)-omega-(2-aminomethylethoxy)-poly[oxy(methyl-1,-2-ethanediyl - both of which undergo a rapid exothermical reaction before being prepped for a spray-on application. Next, the two are kept separate under very high pressures as well as temperatures, and then fired together through a small nozzle. Continue reading for another video and more information.

Roller Coaster Zipline

Sure, conventional roller coasters may feature the latest and greatest technologies, but roller coaster ziplines are far more exhilarating. One such example would be "The Rattlesnake", an attraction that has riders flying off a 65-foot tower over treetops on a 1,000 feet long rail of sharp curves and plunging dips.

Unlike other electric skateboards, Spectra is the first with a self-learning 3D posture control system. What does this mean? The board can accelerate and turn based on the rider's movement even without a remote. The more they ride, the more it understands and adapts to a rider's preferences. It uses a series of sensors, an integrated gyroscope, a differential speed motor control and electromagnetic AMS braking module to make the board user-friendly for beginners as well as pros alike. You can also control it with the Walnutt Go app, or just use it to monitor battery levels, choose a driving mode, find locations, and other riders too.
