Airbow

When you combine the power of a crossbow, with a rifle's precision, you get the Benjamin Pioneer Airbow. It's based on the company's PCP platform, and uses 3,000 psi of compressed air to launch as many as eight 8-full-length arrows at 450-feet-per-second. The Airbow can be reloaded via a hand pump or charging system and fire all 8-shots in the time a crossbow takes to fire three. The device uses an ambidextrous top cocking bolt for extra safety.

World's Fastest Truck Iron Knight

Thanks to a quad-turbocharged 13L diesel engine, mated to an I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission, Volvo's "The Iron Knight" has claimed the title of "world's fastest truck". The 2,400-horsepower and 4,425 lb-ft of torque help it rocket from 0-62 mph in a mere 4.6-seconds, while topping out at 171.5 mph, which is quite impressive, considering the beast weighs 10,000-pounds. It set a new land speed record by completing the 500 meter sprint in just 13.71-seconds (81.6mph average speed) and the 1,000 meter in 21.29-seconds (109mph average speed).

Julian Checkley, special effects art director at the Order 66 Creatures and Effects studio in Galway, Ireland, built a Batman suit, but unlike the others, his features 23 functional gadgets. They include: smoke bombs, a grapnel gun, bat tracker, UV lamp, NBC (nuclear, bacterial, chemical) bat respirator, 2000watt EMP stun gun, and of course, a bat signal projector for the night sky. The suit, which was 3D-printed, molded, and then cast in a flexible urethane rubber, is based on the Batman: Arkham Origins design.

Star Trek Home Theater

3D-Printed Lightsaber

Sean Charlesworth, a 3D-printing fanatic, decided to combine his love of the technology with Star Wars. This amazing lightsaber was created using the same method as the original prop makers: sticking together old camera parts together. "I have a box of this cool stuff. I started picking out cool part and put them together until they started resembling a lightsaber, and I wanted something really beefy looking. These were subsequently duplicated, scaled down or modified through 3D printing to create a lightsaber. As a result, the hilt was actually based on the shell of an old camera motor, an eyepiece mechanism parts and some old lenses. Part of a hard drive also inspired him," said Charlesworth.
