Swedish director Anders Weberg will soon release Ambiencé, a unique film that runs for 720 hours straight, or 30 days of continuous screening time. It will be screened simultaneously on all continents, for one time only, after which the director plans to destroy all copies. "My process is that I collect glimpses of light with the camera and take that with me into the computer where the real work begins, taking all these glimpses and arranging and rearranging them into a flow that I feel represents the emotion I try to express. There is a lot of post production behind it where I run all the captured material through numerous processes. I use After Effects for that part, so this will be for sure an ephemeral experience and the only thing that will remain is the memories of the little bits and parts the viewer got to see," said the director. Continue reading to see the 7-hour, 20-minute trailer sped up into just 60-seconds, and for more information.

There are many not so secret bunkers scattered around the United States that will be used in event of war or other disasters, and the most famous of which, is the Cheyenne Mountain Complex (above). This military installation and nuclear bunker is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, which hosts the activities of several tenant units. The complex was built under 2,000 feet (610 m) of granite on 2 hectares (5 acres). Fifteen three-story buildings are protected from movement by an earthquake or explosion by a system of giant springs that the buildings sit on and flexible pipe connectors to limit the operational effect of movement. The bunker is built to deflect a 30 megaton nuclear explosion as close as 2 kilometers (1.2 mi). Within a mountain tunnel are sets of 25-ton blast doors and another for the civil engineering department. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Unlike other amphibious vehicles, the Hobbycar B612, first introduced at the 1992 Paris Motor Show, is a mid-engined, jet-drive, forward-control four-seater, designed to look like a pick-up. You steer on dry land using a steering wheel, but in water, control is by joystick. Its Peugeot diesel engine is transversely-mounted amidships, and powers both the terrestrial four-wheel drive system, as well as the twin 150 kg-thrust hydrojets. All production models also have an electrically-retractable windshield, and the Citroen-sourced hydro-pneumatic suspension allows a range of height-adjustability. Unfortunately, only 52 B612s were built in the few years of production. Click here to vew the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
