Bose Suspension

By using powerful electromagnetic struts, the Bose car suspension system could instantly extend or retract any one wheel, with all four corners working in concert to keep the vehicle's body level. The system was installed on a Lexus LS400 outside its headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts, and a driver sped the car over several obstacles while the body remained completely level. Where can you find this technology today? Unfortunately, only in big-rig truck seats, where the Bose Ride mounting system actively nulls shock and vibration before it hits the driver.

JB-10 Jetpack

Powered by turbines, the JB-10 jetpack can stay airborne for 10 minutes at a time, accelerate speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour, and reach altitudes of over 10,000 feet, without requiring any additional equipment. "It's like a Segway. If you want to go forward, you just lean forward. If you want to stop, you just lean back. It's incredibly simple. If you wanted to fly a helicopter, you'd need 150 hours of training - but with this, you can learn everything you need to know in about 3 hours," said JetPack Aviation founder David Mayman. One caveat: it'll set you back $250,000 when it goes on sale next year. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Dubai Dynamic Hotel

David Fisher's Dynamic Tower was set to begin construction in 2010, but due to design changes, it's only now getting off the ground. This 1,375-foot-tall skyscraper will feature rooftop solar panels, and 48 individual wind turbines that will be concealed within the floors to provide power. These two sources combined are expected to produce 10 times more energy than it will use. However, what really sets this apart from other structures is that its 80 floors are capable of rotating a full 360°, enabling guests to select their own personal views, with everything powered by sun and wind energy. Want to own a small apartment in this high-tech building? Expect to shell out upwards of $30-million per unit when it's completed. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Origami Bulletproof Shield

This may look like art at first, but it's a functional bulletproof shield. Designed by engineers and students at BYU, this folding Kevlar shield, modeled after origami practices, can stop .44 magnum bullets, thanks to 12 layers of Kevlar with aluminum panels in the middle to give it strength. "Current products out there are about 90 pounds. That's pretty heavy for one person to carry. Our goal was to go for 50 pounds and protect two to three people," said Terri Bateman, adjunct professor of mechanical engineering at BYU.

Pal-V Flying Car


PAL-V, a company based in the Netherlands, has officially launched its Liberty Sport and Liberty Pioneer flying vehicles, with pre-orders for the former starting at $399,000 USD. Both models are based around a custom Rotax engine that powers a dual-propulsion drivetrain. When put in drive mode, the vehicle's propeller folds into the back, while the rotors are tucked up top. Don't let its small size fool you, as it tops out at 100 miles per hour, and can switch from land to air in just 10-minutes. This isn't something you can fly from home since it requires at least 590-feet of space to lift off the ground, with a maximum flying altitude of 11,480 feet.

BMW LEGO Hover Bike

The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit is a must-have for motorcycle fans, but what if BMW created a futuristic version of the bike? Well, BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic teamed up to do just that, and this design is what they came up with. What's even cooler is that they re-purposed the 603 pieces included in the kit specifically for this machine, while the front-wheel rim was modified to form a propeller. For those who happen to be in Denmark, you'll be able to see it live in person starting today at LEGO World Copenhagen, that is until it gets sent off to BMW's Munich headquarters.
