Chinese Car Knockoffs

Now that you've seen what's inside fake iPhones, here are a few Chinese car knockoffs that you (might have) never knew existed. They include the NATS GT-R, Geely GE, and Land Wind X7. While it might fool some on the highway, none of these are carbon copies that's for sure, especially the NATS GT-K. Not too long ago BMW tried suing Shuanghuan for copying the X5, but as you might've already guessed, the German auto manufacturer lost the case in court.

Fake iPhones

Sure, it's a lot easier to buy directly from Apple, but some people just want a bargain, and they end up getting fake iPhones in the process. This was a lot more prevalent during the iPhone 4 and 5 days, but there are still some iPhone 6 knockoffs floating around too. Many of these fakes simply are simple loaded with small weights and then a light-up display that does absolutely nothing, but say "Low Battery".

Billion Frames Per Second

Washington University researchers have built the world's fastest 2D receive-only camera, capable of capturing images at a staggering rate of up to 100-billion FPS. This is possible with a technique called Compressed Ultrafast Photography (CUP), which captures high-speed images frame-by-frame as it passes the lens. Professor Lihong Wang, the research team leader, says: "For the first time, humans can see light pulses on the fly. Because this technique advances the imaging frame rate by orders of magnitude, we now enter a new regime to open up new visions. Each new technique, especially one of a quantum leap forward, is always followed a number of new discoveries." Brian Pogue, an engineer at Darthmouth, adds: "It might be possible to improve the investigation into approaches to optical cloaking, in which light bends or is deformed around an object, instead of going through it."

Fake Chinese Hard Drives

Before picking up a hard drive off eBay or other online sites for an exorbitantly low price (under $20), make sure you're getting the real deal, and not some fake case filled with weights. The same can be said for USB drives, as some sellers are trying to pass off microSD filled plastic cases as legitimate devices. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

LEGO Apartment

At 258-squar-feet and located in the Born district of Barcelona, Spain, this tiny apartment - designed by Barbara Appolloni - is more than meets the eye. Its owner touts it as "LEGO-style" due to the ability for the furniture pieces to transform into the living space into multiple rooms. Don't let the tiny space fool you, there's still a shower, toilet, kitchen, balcony, and even a washer / dryer outside. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Photoshop Troll

When you need a picture digitally altered, the last place you'd want to go are online forums / message boards, social networks, and classified ad services (Craigslist). As you can see above, these people decided to ask random forum members to Photoshop their image, but ended up with disastrous results. However, if you actually paid a real graphic designer to do the job, all of these can probably be completed within 15-30 minutes. Click here to view the first image today's viral picture gallery.

When it comes to business cards, you don't need to spend a fortune hiring a professional designer, just spend some time thinking outside the box, like these people have. You can either use a few clever phrases, or just picking something directly from your workplace (LEGO Minifig) to have the information printed on.

Computers Look Like Other Things

Sometimes, we need to take a look back (possibly to the beginning of the internet), to see how creative computer modders were back in the day. Not only did they want the fastest desktop computer around, but having a unique case was just as important, and these five ultra creative (yet strange) examples are perfect examples.

Construction Failures
