Manufactured by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the TALOS (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) exoskeleton comes equipped with an innovative electrically-activated shield called liquid body armor. Once triggered by a magnetic or electrical current, the body armor transitions from liquid to solid in a matter of milliseconds. The final version will be bulletproof, weaponized, have the ability to monitor vitals, and give the wearer superhuman strength and perception.

The ProDrone PD6B-AW-ARM is unlike other drones, as it can fly at altitudes up to 5,000-feet, while cruising at 37mph in 22mph winds. That's not all, it sports dual five-axis robotic arms that can life and move objects up to 22-pounds, cut wires or just flip switches at altitudes. It's literally capable of operating in any weather.

Forget laser eye surgery, the Ocumetics Bionic Lens by Dr. Garth Webb takes will improve eyesight up to three times better than 20/20. It would be implanted in patients after their eyes have fully developed around the age of 25, and would replace the natural lenses in the eye, giving the wearer super vision. "This is vision enhancement that the world has never seen before. If you can just barely see the clock at 10 feet, when you get the Bionic Lens you can see the clock at 30 feet away. I think this device is going to bring us closer to the holy grail of excellent vision at all ranges - distant, intermediate and near," said Webb.

Water-Gen has created machines that draw moisture directly from the air to produce clean drinking water, and some of these devices can yield up to 825-gallons of water per day. Available in three models, they all utilize an array of plastic 'leaves' that collect warm humid, with the smallest consumer-sized device capable of producing 4-gallons each day. All you need is a connection to an energy source, costing just 10-cents in energy usage per gallon. Continue reading for another video and more information.
Always wanted an electric bike, but already have a perfectly good standard bike at home? Introducing the GeoOrbital Wheel. Put simply, it's a battery-powered tire that replaces a regular bicycle wheel, making it an electric-powered model in 60-seconds or less without using any tools, enabling riders to travel at up to 20mph, with a 50-mile range. The wheel itself is comprised of a rugged flat-proof tire, aerospace-grade aluminum motor controller, brushless DC motor, and a lithium-ion battery. That's right, everything needed to power your bike is built into the wheel itself. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

When DJI Phantom 4 Drone meets rescue vehicle, you get the futuristic Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept. Unlike the standard Navara, this concept features a prototype portable battery pack comprised of seven 2kW EV modules inside a weather-proof machined aluminum housing. When docked in place, these are in constant 'charge' mode, harvesting power generated by its 187-horsepower, twin-turbo 2.3L, essentially making it an alternative to a petrol generator. The drone has an operating ceiling of 19,685-feet and has the ability to fly at speeds up to 20m per second, for close to 30 minutes, while sending live footage back to the car's pop-up display hidden in the load bed wall.

Artist and designer Alexandre Chapelin spent 1.5-years researching / testing materials needed to create the stunning "Starry Sea" table, which combines both stars and sea into one piece. It's crafted around an unusual piece of marble from Anguilla, a neighboring island of St. Martin/San Maarten, also the birthplace of Chapelin's "LA TABLE" brand, and acrylic resin.

Elon Musk has big plans for his space ventures, and it includes sending humans to the Red Planet. He announced, at Code Conference 2016 in California: "I think, if things go according to plan, we should be able to launch people probably in 2024, with arrival in 2025. The basic game plan is we're going to send a mission to Mars with every Mars opportunity from 2018 onwards. They occur approximately every 26 months. We're establishing cargo flights to Mars that people can count on for cargo." Both cargo and humans will be sent by an Interplanetary Transport System (ITS), formerly known as Mars Cargo Transporter (MCT). Continue reading for another video on Mars.

You've probably seen, or at least heard, of The Mill's shape-shifting Blackbird rig, but now Top Gear provides us with an up-close look at the high-tech vehicle. Just to recap, Blackbird can extend its length by up to 4-feet and width by 10-inches. Wheels and suspension pieces can also be swapped out to match most chassis designs. Powering everything is an electric motor that can be programmed to match the driving experience of nearly any vehicle, while a camera array and 3D laser scanner are used to generate a virtual model of the surrounding environment.

The Devtac Ronin Kevlar Level IIIA Tactical Ballistic Helmet may not turn you into a superhero, but it can stop .357 Sig and .44 Magnum rounds. Neodymium N52 magnets enable operators to easily put on, or remove, cheek plates to install sights/optics not originally configured with the helmet. Even in the most treacherous of weather, including scorching heat with humidity, the helmet will not fog up, thanks to special vents and a built-in fan. The lens was designed by a Suzuki aerodynamic engineer and also provide ballistic protection that either meets or exceeds MIL-PRF-31013.
