Singapore Airlines New Suites

Just when you thought commercial air travel couldn't get any more luxurious, Singpore Airlines unveils their all-new A380 suites and business class. This revamped first class cabin features six suites instead of 12 to provide 'exclusivity and intimate privacy.' Each one comes with a leather swivel chair, electronically adjustable roller-blinds, lots of storage space, and a standalone full-flat bed. The bed can be stowed into a dividing wall when not in use for even more space, or reclined for viewing the 32" HDTV. Or, if you prefer, two suites can be joined together to create a two-person suite with a double bed. Continue reading for another video tour, more pictures and information.

Boiling River

No, this isn't an illusion or fantasy location from a story, but rather a real boiling river discovered by geoscientist Andres Ruzo. This mysterious, four-mile long river, located deep in the heart of the Amazon, is so hot that it can brew tea. At its widest, it's 82-feet, and around 20-feet deep, with some parts even boiling over. "Dipping my hand into the river would give me third-degree burns in less than half a second. Falling in could easily kill me. The river boils because of fault-fed hot springs. As we have hot blood running through our veins and arteries, so, too, the Earth has hot water running through its cracks and faults," said Ruzo.

Underwater Restaurant Norway

When this Snohetta-designed structure opens in Norway during 2019, it will become Europe's first truly underwater restaurant. It will stand on the sea bed 5-meters beneath surface, thanks to thick walls that can withstand the most variable sea conditions. "One of the benefits of this building is how it links nature and land, and how you can come safe from the land and in a very dramatic way go down through this concrete tube to the nature at sea level, and experience what normally is not experienced," said Rune Grasdal, lead architect on the project.
