Wingboard


You may have seen the renders, but Wyp Aviation's "Wingboard" is closer than ever to becoming a reality. Simply put, this board will enable riders to surf through the air at more than 100mph being towed by a plane, carving through clouds. "Testing was set up so that the rider and WingBoard would experience the same forces as if they were being towed by an aircraft. The tow line, instead of being attached to an aircraft, was attached approximately 45 feet inside the wind tunnel contraction. Flight testing revealed that the system was extremely stable and easy to fly. Full flight capabilities were achieved within 15 minutes of starting testing and very closely matched predictions," said the company.

Sin City Hustler World's Longest Monster Truck

The "Sin City Hustler" started out as a normal Ford Excursion SUV, but after tuning shop Big Toyz Racing (BTR) got their hands on it, the vehicle became a 12-passenger monster truck.

Gone are the days it takes months to build a home, thanks to the all-new Hadrian X robot. This truck-mounted building machine can lay up to 1,000 bricks per hour using a 30m boom, all the while gluing them into place and working 24 hours day. All this equates to a fully built home in just 2-days, or at least the exterior structure. "By utilizing a construction adhesive rather that traditional mortar, the Hadrian X will maximize the speed of the build and strength and thermal efficiency of the final structure," said the Australian firm.
