Think of the Avtoros Shaman 8x8 as a tank, armored SUV and ATV all combined into one. Weighing a massive 2.5-tons and measuring 6 meters in length, 3 meters high, and 2.5 meters wide, this beast can tackle any terrain. It's powered by an Iveco F1C 3.0L turbo diesel engine that generates 146-horsepower, mated to 6-speed manual gearbox. However, it's the 8-wheel drive system that really stands out, as there's 3 different steering systems, allowing the driver the ability to switch between "On-Road" (front 4WD), "Off-Road" (active rear wheel steering), and Crab Mode (rotates all 8-wheels in sync to move sideways). The Shaman has a 1.5-ton cargo capacity, and is capable of scaling 45-degree inclines. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Pasi Pennanen, Toroidion's founder, is a Finnish industrial designer with more than two decades of experience building concepts and production models at Honda, Jaguar, Italian design house Zagato and more.

Designed by Kyuho Song & Boa, the Window Socket is essentially an outlet that sticks to a window and draws solar power to an internal battery, which lets you either plug small devices into the outlet directly, or save the stored power for use during nighttime hours. The suction plate encircles the solar panel, and a basic outlet feeds the converted solar power to a device, and it can be used anywhere there is daylight, particularly where there is restricted use of electricity - it even works on planes.

You may have seen the Concrete Canvas Shelter before, but here's another look at this amazing invention. It's basically a large inflatable tent made from a canvas-like fabric that is both flexible as well as lightweight, but when water is added, it hardens into concrete. This was originally developed for military use and also for natural disasters where sturdy shelters need to be constructed quickly. In tests the inflatable canvas shelter was able to be setup by 2 people, without requiring special training, in less than an hour. After hardening, the building is ready to be used within 24-hours. It comes delivered airtight in a flat-pack, water / rot-proof sacks. An electric fan quickly inflates the plastic structure to ready it for the water.
