Flying Huntsman 6x6

Project Kahn's matte black Flying Huntsman 6x6 Defender 110 Double Cab Pickup is not some show car, but rather a 6-wheeled beast that is powered by an ample automatic diesel engine that produces122 brake-horsepower. The original vehicle only had 50-miles on the odometer, before getting a complete overhaul, complete with X-Lander front grille, 1945 Retro alloy wheels, a 400 millimeter modified chassis extension, and of course, a fully custom interior.

BMW Roadcarver


The BMW Street Carver was unlike any other skateboards at the time, as it boasted a unique suspension system derived from parts from a BMW 5 Series car. Its steering mechanism that gave it the ability to carve like a snowboard or surfboard. The Street Carver employed large, 110mm curved wheels, which were required because the axles roll in relation to the ground (i.e. change camber) as the board is turned (as opposed to traditional skateboarding axles, which remain parallel to the ground as the board is turned). Designer Rico Kersten unveils the Roadcarver, a four-wheeled motorcycle that was inspired by this unique skateboard. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

EM Sense

Disney Research unveils "EM-Sense," a technology that utilizes the electromagnetic (EM) noise of electrical and electromechanical objects during their regular operation. Simply put, when a user makes physical contact with such an object, this EM signal travels through the user, owing to the conductivity of the human body. "By modifying a small, low-cost, software-defined radio, we can detect and classify these signals in real-time, enabling robust on-touch object detection. Unlike prior work, our approach requires no instrumentation of objects or the environment; our sensor is self-contained and can be worn unobtrusively on the body. We call our technique EM-Sense and built a proof-of-concept smartwatch implementation," according to the research paper. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Rewritable Paper

Researchers from Shandong University in China, the University of California, Riverside and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created light-printable, rewritable paper that can be printed with light and re-written up to 80-times. "The greatest significance of our work is the development of a new class of solid-state photo-reversible color-switching system to produce an ink-free light-printable rewritable paper that has the same feel and appearance as conventional paper, but can be printed and erased repeatedly without the need for additional ink. Our work is believed to have enormous economic and environmental merits to modern society," said Yadong Yin, professor of chemistry at the University of California, Riverside.
