Yard Built XSR700

Winston Yeh's Rough Crafts is back at it again, and his latest project is perfect for cruising the streets of Gotham. Called the "Yard Built XSR700", it's based on the XSR700 and features an X2E fully adjustable remote control digital suspension, making it adjustable on the fly for tarmac riding or muddy terrains. He then designed a set of triple clamps that can run a set of YZF-R1 forks along with an R1 axle, brakes and wheels designed for the R1 front end. "The XSR was an amazing base to start with. I love the tubular frame of the 700, and the power to weight ratio is perfect for a motorcycle. With the newly designed shorter frame and detachable rear frame loop you really don't need to cut the frame to make a proper custom shape," said Winston.

Earthquake Resistant Concrete

University of British Columbia (UBC) researchers have developed an eco-friendly concrete that can be sprayed onto the exterior of buildings to make them as strong as steel and capable of withstanding many unforeseen disasters. Called Eco-friendly Ductile Cementitious Composite (EDCC), it's mainly comprised of an industrial by-product called fly ash, which makes it durable, malleable and much more ductile than normal concrete. The research team sprayed EDCC on concrete block walls one-half inch thick, and then simulated a magnitude 9 earthquake. "The results of these tests have been amazing. We can shake the wall extensively without it failing," said UBC engineering Ph.D. candidate Salman Soleimani-Dashtaki. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Aton Impulse Viking

When monster truck meets an amphibious car, you get the grenade-proof, 3.3-ton Aton Impulse Viking. Despite its monstrous stance, it's powered by an ample 1,770cc engine that generates 82 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 37 mph on land and 9.3 mph in the water. This beast can tackle 38° inclines, and its low center of mass give it 42° of sideways tilt before the chance of tipping over. Since it rides on giant balloon tires, the driver can adjust tire pressures at any time directly from the cabin. The suspension is also pneumatically adjustable to give you 10 inches more ground clearance when you need it, while lower tire pressures and bigger contact patches minimize ground pressure and environmental damage. One caveat: pricing starts at $200,000. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

China Glass Walkway Crack

When you walk on this glass walkway located at the East Taihang Mountains Scenic Area in China's northern Hebei Province, it appears to crack right beneath you, but it's actually all just a clever illusion. How does it work? Well, apparently the workers placed shattered fragments of glass in one of the walkway's middle layers, stretching across several panels at the end of the bridge. When one walks over them, the glass appears to shatter under your feet, complete with faux sound effects. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

WRX-Powered Motorcycle


Custom motorcycles are nothing new, but you rarely see a tuning shop build one around a car engine, that is unless...you're talking about "The Mad Boxer". Powered by a Subaru WRX 2.5L turbocharged boxer engine, many of the bike's parts were custom built and CNC-milled by the owner, Marcel van Hooijdonk, himself. Other mods include: a Kawasaki fuel tank, Japanese 2-speed automatic transmission, a turbo swap that replaces the WRX original, and Buell brakes.
