The Ring Clock has been making the rounds online for quite some time now, but just recently, semi-functional prototypes have begun appearing. The ring itself is made from durable, surgical-grade stainless steel, and consists of three rotating rings used to display the hour, minute and seconds through the use of either blue or orange LED lights. It's equipped with a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that can be charged wirelessly, good for a full week of continuous use on just a single charge.

NASA has confirmed that Asteroid 86666 (2000 FL10), a 1.5-mile wide (2.5km) space rock, is due to make its closest pass on October 10, tonight, but poses no threat. Fortunately, Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object office, said there would be no Earth impacts "anytime in the foreseeable future" and that all known Potentially Hazardous Asteroids have less than a "0.01% chance of impacting Earth in the next 100 years."

At first glance, this appears to be the famed hoverboard from "Back to the Future" (the pink LED model), but it's just a one-wheeled, self-balancing board of sorts by Hoverboard Technologies. Capable of hitting 16 mph, it can be fully charged in under 20-minutes, and has a range of nearly 10 miles. Riders simply have to tilt forward to advance forth, and tilt back to slow themselves back down. A companion smartphone app monitors can be used to view data such as speed, LED lights control, and the amount of charge left. There's also a nifty "Find My iPhone" like security feature that sends alerts to your handset when it's too far away, which at that time, can be remotely shutdown by the company once reported stolen.

A group of Estonian students just couldn't get enough of nature, so they decided to build three huge wooden megaphones to amplify these sounds - captured by photographer Tonu Tunnel. You can find the installation in Estonia's Pahni Nature Center, best known for its beautiful study trails that double as an "outdoor classroom." Hannes Praks, head of the Interior Architecture Department, said, "the three-meter diameter megaphones will operate as a 'bandstand' for the forest around the installation, amplifying the sounds of nature."

An aircraft carrier is essentially a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase, equipped with a full-length flight deck and facilities for carrying, arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft. They have evolved from converted cruisers to nuclear-powered warships that carry numerous fighter planes, strike aircraft, helicopters, and other types of aircraft. Sometimes, these aircraft have to make night landings, and these videos will show you exactly how crazy the process is. Continue reading for two more videos of the F/18 Hornet making night landings on a carrier.
Seeing an 18-wheeler on the road is nothing new, but spotting one transporting a tiny toy is definitely something you don't see everyday. Unless this is a very wealthy person who contracted a trucking company for this prank, it's probably just the driver heading to pick up their next load, but having some fun along the way, or so we'd like to think. Unfortunately (or fortunately), that is just one of the many images circulating online that make absolutely no sense. Continue reading for more.

Forget flat tires, the Energy Return Wheel by Colorado-based designer Brian Russell is completely airless, and aims to solve that problem for good. Instead of air, ERW uses rubber that's been stretched over a series of carbon nano tube reinforced composite rods designed to provide the same cushioning as traditional tires. The rods are fully adjustable, enabling the tension on the rubber to adapt to different road conditions and terrains, improving both flexing and recoil cycling for riders.
