Bionic Boot

Inventor Keahi Seymour has always wanted to run like a speedy animal, and his latest creation was inspired by the gait of ostriches. At the age of 12, he began sketching footwear, and five years later, his first prototype using old Rollerblade boots, became a reality. It consisted of steel tubing, and bungee cords. His new Bionic Boot can propel users forward at up to 25 miles per hour. The eventual goal is to boost the speed to 40mph by upgrading the springy heels with electrical actuators.

Drone with Gun

Drone enthusiast James Higgins decided to build an auto-aiming hexcopter with a removable turret. A laser cutter and 3D printer were used to manufacture many of the parts. Two operators are required, one to pilot the drone, and another to operate the turret, both with a live video feed via a helmet. However, it can also be put into auto-pilot mode, enabling the drone to automatically aim and fire at targets. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Predator Motorcycle Helmet Laser


You've most likely seen the original Predator motorcycle helmet released a few years ago, but now Nitrinos has updated it with a 3-point laser module. To be more specific, these aluminum encased red lasers - up to 5mW - are visible in fog or smoke when activated. For those wondering if this is safe? "Lasers with such power don't hurt the retina. LASERs are switched by means of a microsized button at the bottom of the helmet. Two AAA batteries shall be used in order to switch the lasers," according to the company. Besides that feature, these helmets still have 22 dreadlocks, a 4-channel adjustable ventilation system, and a quick-release visor system.

Stealth Helicopter

The Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche was an advanced five-blade armed reconnaissance and attack helicopter designed for the United States Army. The Comanche emplyed advanced sensors in its reconnaissance role, and was intended to designate targets for the AH-64 Apache. The aircraft was also armed with missiles and rockets to destroy armored vehicles. It was intended to be a stealth helicopter; it incorporated multiple techniques to reduce its radar cross-section (RCS) and other areas of visibility. Its outer surfaces were faceted and had radar-absorbent material (RAM) coatings and infrared-suppressant paint applied; with these measures, the Comanche's RCS was 360 times smaller than the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.

Black Hornet PD-100 Drone

Certain situations don't allow for rapid deployment of full-sized drones, and that's where the Black Hornet PD-100 comes in. This micro unmanned aerial vehicle, developed by Norway-based Prox Dynamics AS, measures just 4" x 1", and provides ground troops with local situational awareness. They're small enough to fit in one hand and weigh just over half an ounce (16g, including batteries). The new model is equipped with three cameras; one looking forward, one looking straight down, and one pointing downward at 45 degrees. A Black Hornet package contains two helicopters, and since a 90-percent charge is reached in 20-25 minutes, the same as its hovering time, when one needs to be recharged the other is ready to fly.
