Electric Gatling Gun

Gatling guns are nothing new, but the XM556 Microgun is the "world's first electric handheld Gatling gun". Smaller than an M4 rifle, it can be used just about anywhere with precise accuracy, complete with 5.56mm belt-fed ammunition. "This defensive suppression weapon is significantly smaller and lighter than its big brother the M134. It was meant to stand in place of anywhere high suppressive fire wanted without the weight or footprint of the larger M134 electrically driven Gatling gun system," according to an Empty Shell company representative.

"A few days ago I was looking at the beginning of Lamborghini when they were into tractors, while working on some of my series, including the Mutants.

Chinese Good Will Hunting

Chinese migrant worker Yu Jianchun has no mathematics background nor a college degree, but he's currently being hailed as a real-life version of Will Hunting, the Matt Damon's character in the 1997 Oscar-winning film "Good Will Hunting", after discovering an alternative method to verify Carmichael numbers. What are Carmichael numbers? They're also called "pseudo primes", or large numbers that only appear to be prime numbers, which are only divisible by one and themselves. "I made my discoveries through intuition. I would write down what I thought when inspiration struck about the Carmichael," said Yu. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Shaman 8x8

It's a tank...it's a centipede-like ATV...it's the Shaman Avtoros 8x8? That's right, this 8-wheel drive amphibious expedition vehicle weighs in at a hefty 4.8-tons, and thanks to the differential locking on all axes, along with a comprehensive system of steering wheels, you'll be able to tackle snow, swamps, ice, sand dunes as well as water.

Norway has its own share of bridges, but they plan on spending $25-billion to build the world's first "submerged floating bridge" that shortens travel times between Kristiansand and Trondheim from 21-hours down to less than 11-hours. It will consist of two 4,000-foot long concrete tubes - braced to each other with trusses and bedrock - one for each direction. Since they're underwater, inclement weather above the surface will not affect them, and depth is controlled by a series of pontoons floated on the surface of the fjord.
