Running on breath stored in a balloon the engine spins to life when the compressed air in the balloon is fed through the cylinders.

Oil and water don’t normally mix but if done just right they can, highlighting that there is an art to blending two disparate things together, this is the art of the Mashup. Videographer Robert Jones may just be a master of the mashup if his latest video ‘The Teletubbies perform I Fink U Freeky’ is anything to go by.
Putting his editing skills to good use Jones trolled through hours of Teletubbies episodes (insanity inducing in itself) to find the perfect Teletubbie action to match up to Die Antwoords thumping track ‘I Fink U Freeky’. Yolanda and Ninja, the stars of Die Antwoord, are sure to be amused.

The Lexus Slide is the latest interpretation of the high tech dream, a form of friction-less levitating transport. The latest to make the world wonder, is it really a Hoverboard? Slide is a working high tech wonder with one small caveat, it needs something to push against. It isn’t a ‘Back to the Future’ Hoverboard but instead a maglev skateboard, which in the end may be even cooler.
Inside the Slide Lexus design genius Haruhiko Tanakashi has managed to squeeze multiple high temperature superconductors that will resist the magnet field of a permanent magnet with enough force to lift it and a fully grown man into the air. The superconductors used by Lexus only take on their special properties when cooled to -197 degrees Celsius hence the steam coming out of the side of the Slide which is the exhaust of the liquid nitrogen cooling system keeping the superconductors super chilly.

With wars raging in many parts of the world large explosions are bound to be seen from time to time but there have been a number of explosions recently that have had many people wondering WTF was that? Explosions so large that you they could well be tactical nuclear weapons.
May 2015, Yemeni capitol Sana’a experiences an explosion that shatters windows for miles around and throws up a burning mushroom cloud. The explosion was quickly passed off by many as a direct hit on a weapons cache but this was disputed by the locals. Full article here.
The far more likely explanation for the Yemeni incident is that a bunker buster tactical nuke was used as there is an initial explosion when the missile hits that’s designed to penetrate the ground. Then a secondary explosion that creates the mushroom cloud and destroys whatever is under the ground. Not only does it mushroom but a flash of proton bombardment can be seen after the blast. Also in the first video you’ll notice lots of white specs in the footage, this is not debris it is the radiation (Neutrons) from the blast hitting the CCD of the camera. The same effects can be seen in footage from Fukushima and the American nuclear tests during the 50’s.
