Skydiver No Parachute

Skydiving is already an extremely dangerous sport, but imagine jumping from an airplane at 25,000-feet without a parachute? Daredevil Luke Aikins will attempt this very stunt tomorrow, and without a wingsuit. He'll have just one chance to land in a safety net the size of a 1/3 the size of a football field while descending at speeds up to 120mph. The total free fall time will be approximately 126-seconds, giving him enough time to maneuver towards the net. Continue reading for another video and more information.

Artist Patricia Piccinini teamed up with a leading trauma surgeon and a crash investigation expert to create Graham, a hyperrealistic sculpture of a human designed to survive a fatal car crash. A massive helmet-like head replaces the traditional neck, while hoof-like feet, as well as other strange features show a human body evolved to sustain the forces in major auto collisions. The skull is larger to hold more cerebrospinal fluid and ligaments to sustain the brain in case of a crash. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

UFO Miami

Airport workers have probably seen it all, from UFO hoaxes to just Chinese lanterns floating in the sky, but this recent sighting has stirred the interest of conspiracy theorists worldwide.

Blue Wine

Spanish startup Giik teamed up with scientists from the University of the Basque Country and food researchers at Azti Tecnecalia to create the world's first blue wine. Why? They wanted "to shake things up a little and see what happens. To create something new. Something different." The wine itself consists of a blend of red and white grapes harvested from vinyards in La Rioja, Zaragoza, Leon and Castilla-La Mancha, while the bluish tint is from anthocyanin, a natural pigment in the grapes' skin, as well as indigo.

Groundfridge

Think of the Weltevree Groundfridge as your own naturally-cooled man cave, or cellar, without requiring any additional energy.

You could either use it for entertainment, or to store meats, cheese, vegetables, wines, etc. One caveat: it will set you back at least $10,000.
