10-Person Water Totter

This is the water teeter totter that rocks up to ten people for safe, reliable waterborne fun for entire families. Five people positioned on either side grasp one of 20 built-in handles and then use body weight to rock the structure 10′ above the water’s surface and splash opponents. The resilient rocker is made from commercial-grade, 1,000 denier polyester fabric sandwiched between two layers of 28 oz. PVC — the same construction as the inflatable boats used by the U.S. Navy Seals. Every seam is hot-air sealed, and the PVC is treated to block damaging UV rays. The rocker can also be inverted to serve as a 6′ tall double-sided water slide. Seven handholds on one side provide confident ascents for brisk, rewarding slides into the water.” w/ photos

World’s Smallest Electric Car?

If you’re expecting the tiniest car in the world to be extremely cramped with limited legroom, you’re thinking too big. Go smaller. Scientists in the Netherlands developed a car that is the size of a single molecule, which can only be viewed under spectacularly small lens. Given that it is so small, the only real ways that it has any visual similarities to a car is that it has four wheels and a bare-bones internal framework. The car is powered by electrical pulses that respond to millivolts of energy. For every half-turn of its wheels, the car needed another jolt of energy. Because of its high energy requirements and minuscule size, it’s no surprise that the first journey was only six nanometres. Even though the actual size of the project may be smaller than the average human eye, it is a massive breakthrough for scientists in the field of nanotechnology.” w/ photos

Top 12 Ultra-Modern Home Designs

“What will our homes look like in the future? Packed with electronic controls and highly efficient gadgets, will they rapidly grow into strange, abstracted structures that bear little resemblance to our current houses? These 12 futuristic house designs from around the world may be indicative of what’s to come, or maybe in a few decades they’ll seem quaintly retro-futuristic, like spaceship houses from the 1950s. Either way, they’re fun to look at.” w/ photos
