JB-10 Jetpack

Powered by turbines, the JB-10 jetpack can stay airborne for 10 minutes at a time, accelerate speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour, and reach altitudes of over 10,000 feet, without requiring any additional equipment. "It's like a Segway. If you want to go forward, you just lean forward. If you want to stop, you just lean back. It's incredibly simple. If you wanted to fly a helicopter, you'd need 150 hours of training - but with this, you can learn everything you need to know in about 3 hours," said JetPack Aviation founder David Mayman. One caveat: it'll set you back $250,000 when it goes on sale next year. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Subway Recycle Machine

Photo credit: Bored Panda

Beijing decided to implement an ingenious idea to encourage people to recycle more by installing 34 "reverse" vending machines inside subway stations throughout the city. When an empty plastic bottle is inserted, a sensor scans it to assess the value of the plastic - anywhere from 5 to 15 cents - and turns that into public transportation credit or extra mobile phone minutes. The reward is commensurate with the quality and number of bottles being fed into the machine, while tourists who don't need the rewards can insert bottles anyways.
