Say goodbye to low-resolution cameras, and hello to Canon's new insane 250-megapixel CMOS sensor.

That's not all, pair the 250MP sensor with a super-telephoto lens as well as Turbulence Removal technology, and you'll be able to clearly see a woman waving on the Eiffel Tower from approximately 1.9-miles away.

A glass-bottomed bridge in China, suspended 3,543 feet above the ground, cracked while visitors were walking on it. "I was almost at the end and suddenly I heard a sound. My foot shook a little. I looked down and I saw that there was a crack in the floor," said Lee Dong Hai, one of the people on that bridge. It's located at the Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Henan Province, and opened just over three weeks ago on September, 20 2015. The U-shaped bridge measures 223-feet long and is capable of carrying 800 kilograms per square meter. Continue reading for more interesting photos.
Seeing an 18-wheeler on the road is nothing new, but spotting one transporting a tiny toy is definitely something you don't see everyday. Unless this is a very wealthy person who contracted a trucking company for this prank, it's probably just the driver heading to pick up their next load, but having some fun along the way, or so we'd like to think. Unfortunately (or fortunately), that is just one of the many images circulating online that make absolutely no sense. Continue reading for more.
Inspired by the Dodge Power Wagon from 1946, the Legacy Classic Power Wagon isn't just a restoration project, as it can achieve speeds in excess of 100 mph - the original tops out at 50 mph, and can go from 0-60 mph in just 6.2 seconds.

Other features include: a classic LED-backlit instrument panel, an air-conditioner, tilting Nardi steering wheel, Mercedes-Benz-sourced carpet, Cadillac Escalade seats and a microfiber headliner from Porsche.

Yes, even the most patient of professors lose their cool at times, but to prevent outbursts from happening, they do things like putting a funny twist on the "Name:" section of a worksheet. Other examples include: starting a Power Point presentation with an interesting cover sheet, reading RateMyProfessor reviews out loud to the class, using a gigantic stick instead of a laser pointer and lots more. Continue reading to see them all.
When the Batmobile meets a Corvette, you get something that looks like Callaway's Corvette C7 GT3-R. This stealthy vehicle sports a carbon fiber widebody, a huge air diffuser, complete with burnt gas vents in the side sills, and is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 Chevrolet engine generating 600-horsepower, mated to an X-Trac six-speed sequential transmission.

China is known for their elaborate knockoffs, and one of them is this MacBook Air, which features a unibody design. If you're not able to tell the difference at first glance, everything changes when you switch it on, as it's actually running Windows 7 Ultimate, and not OS X. This $328 laptop is powered by an Intel ATOM D2500 (1.86GHz), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and sports a 14-inch LED HD Screen display (1366 x 768). Despite these lowly specs, it still has a 1.3-megapixel camera for video conferencing as well as 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity. Continue reading for more fascinating images that you probably haven't seen before.
Brick and mortar businesses could either advertise online, or come up with a clever chalkboard sign in hopes that they go viral online. These chose the latter, but unfortunately, many do not include their logo or store name on these signs. First up, we have a pilates studio or a cafe that decided "Pie and Lattes" was far more interesting. Next, a bar that touts itself as a "3D Tinder". Continue reading for more.
