They call this ‘red neck style couch moving’ so I figured that they were just going to throw the couch out the window. But needless to say I surely was mistaken. You have to watch the unique way these guys get their couch off the 3rd floor balcony of their apartment complex. Ingenious…possibly and creative I would have to say…definitely.
This is one that you have to see to believe. Watch as this base jumper strapped with a head cam jumps off the 1200 foot Kuala Lumpur Tower Skyscrapper and parachutes down to a smaller building landing into the roof top pool during a party none the less. He better be getting free drinks all night for pulling off that stunt.
Here is one of the oldest traditions that takes place every year at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. It’s infamously known as ‘The Devel’s Wheel.’ Basically what it’s all about is a group of people have to sit on a wheel and try to stay on as it spins at a high rate of speed. Whoever can hang on the longest is the winner. But, there are other obstacles besides the wheel spinning at a high rate of speed, the contestants have to over come other obstacles that make it almost impossible to stay on. If you would like more information on The Devel’s Wheel and the festivities, checkout the Das muenchen website for a list of other festivities that take place in Munich.
These guys decided to do a science project inspired by Col. Joe Kittinger from back in 1960. Col. Kittinger back in 1960 took a balloon over 100,000 feet and skydived back to earth. These guys decided to send a balloon strapped with a camera up over 100,000 feet to catch the Awesome footage. They launched The balloon on Saturday, September 27th from Port Saint Lucie, Florida. The fight time on the camera was wrong. The actual time was 10:58 with the burst at 12:43 giving a total flight time of 1:45:17. You get to see first hand what Col. Joe Kittinger, and Felix Baumgartner witnessed in actual time.
Checkout this Amazing Footage! Have you ever seen a polite and social stingray before? A lot of people are scared of stingrays because of their dangerous spike tail. The most famous death by stingray was when a stingray’s tail killed ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin back on September 4, 2006. Well, this footage here shows just how nice and social stingrays can really be. Tourists that were on vacation in the Maldives, a group of islands in the Indian Ocean, just south of India captured this footage. They were feeding fish just off the dock when the extraordinary event unfolded. It was published to Youtube on the 19th of September 2014.
The University of Birmingham in The United Kingdom has just discovered a series of new monuments located on the grounds at stonehenge using advanced technology. Professor Vince Gaffney & Eamonn Baldwin explain in this video how they used Magnetometers, Electromagnetic induction, and Ground Penetrating Radar to locate new monuments located under the earth on the grounds surrounding Stonehenge. Some of the monuments discovered look like Mini-Henges. This video was published to Youtube on September 12, 2014.
Riceman2011’s Youtube channel just uploaded a video about the September 11 ‘Tribute in Light Memorial‘ that is displayed in New York City every year in remembrance of the attacks. The Riceman takes you up close showing you the lights from Gound Zero looking up.
The Tribute first began back in 2002 when The Municipal Art Societey of New York ran a temporary installation from March 11 – April 14, 2002. The Tribute in Light is a total of 88 search lights that shine into the night sky that resemble the twin towers in blue light shining into the heavens. They launched it again in 2003, and it has ran every year since.
The second video that I embedded is a view from the other side of the river facing the financial district. This video was uploaded by the Associated Press youtube channel.
Let me tell you a little about an amazing company called ReWalk Robotics. Rewalk is a commercial bionic exoskeleton walking assistance system that uses its robotic powered legs to allow paraplegics the opportunity to sit up, stand, and believe it or not, Walk Again! That’s right, this invention is something right out of a Tom Cruise sci-fi movie.
The Rewalk robotic exoskeleton was developed by Dr. Amit Goffer. He is an Israeli inventor who became a quadriplegic after an ATV accident in 1997. Who better to invent something, than some one who knows first had what it is like to not walk. The system allows the user to sit up, stand, walk, climb stairs and the freedom to make their own decisions again.
Rewalk Robotics filed for an Initial Public offering to list on the Nasdaq back on July 10, 2014. They will offer 3,350,000 shares to the market at around 14 to 16 a share. This should help them raise around 60 million dollars off the IPO.
I have embedded two videos to describe your questions in more detail.
(1) The first video is the Introduction video on Rewalk Robotic website, which gives you the jist of it.
(2) The second video is footage of Barrack Obama visiting Rewalk Robotics on his trip to Israel back in 2013.
Jon Gustafsson and Artio Films just uploaded this spectacular video two days ago to Youtube. Watch as they capture amazing, breath-taking footage of the volcano activity in Iceland at night. This video will put you so close to the lava, that you will feel like Frodo from Lord of the Rings. The footage was captured via helicopter. Reykjavik Helicopters supplied the transportation for production.
A group of international scientists just completed a successful study that found that a brain could transmit a message to another brain through using internet channels. They successfully completed this across continents. The experiment involved two people: one was in India, and the other in France … The signal then translated into a code and was sent via the internet to the cap of a receiver in the other country.” Here is news video uploaded to Youtube on September 7, 2014 describing the experiment in more detail.
