RAF fighter pilot Andy Green intends to get behind the wheel of a new concept car that will push him forward at an astounding 1000mph. The car, called ‘Bloodhound’, is powered by a rocket bolted onto a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine which should provide enough thrust to grab the land speed record. The car also uses several Intel Atom processors in the cockpit that handles all the telemetry and diagnostic readouts. The Bloodhound is currently in a preliminary construction stage and sh ...
  There it was, 7,000 feet up in the sky, snapping photographs of the Iraqi landscape when it looked like it should have been slaking the illicit thirst of underage soldiers. But now the Army reports that the program that gave us a drone known as the ‘Flying Beer Keg’ is all tapped out. No need to cry though as the Miami-Dade police department has purchased a T-Hawk drone from the military contractor, Honeywell, and is now awaiting FAA approval to operate it in domestic airspace ...
  I know what you’re thinking, “nice photoshopped picture”, but it’s actually not.

Made in the Parel workshop, by Central Railway engineers, this one took shape when the authorities were toying with the idea of building an effective garbage disposal system on whe ...
  Admit it, at some point in your childhood this is how you thought you were going to commute to work. Well if you have roughly $230,000 you might just be able to that. Raymond Li, a Chinese Canadian living in St. John's, Newfoundland, developed the Jetlev (abbreviated from the words Jet Levitation) concept in 2000. Since 2003 he, and later his Jetlev Development Corporation, have been conducting feasibility studies and concept development in Canada. Unlike conventional aircrafts and jetpac ...
Uh-oh, a new challenger to our boys at Cambridge. With a blistering speed of almost 56 mph Sunswift Ivy, a solar-powered car made by students at the University of New South Wales, has become a Guinness world record holder. The speed was significantly faster than the previous record of 40 mph. The milestone is for cars powered exclusively by silicon solar cells. IVy normally uses its cells to charge a 25kg battery, but this was removed for the record attempt. The Sunswift IVy is car that is t ...
