The SR-71 Blackbird is, without a doubt, the most advanced airplane ever built in relation to the technology available at the time. It broke all aviation records, it flew incredible missions, and it became the stuff of legend. Lockheed Martin published its history in this collection of high resolution scans of old… » 12/12/14 11:18am 12/12/14 11:18am

This may be the coolest, most futuristic bomber ever built

While the Saab 35 Draken may be the coolest, most futuristic combat jet ever made, when it comes to bombers that title goes to the XB-70 Valkyrie, a gigantic supersonic strategic nuclear bomber that never entered service.

New Batmobile revealed? (spoiler: If it's real, it's pretty awesome)

According to Slashfilm, these are images of the new Batmobile to be featured in Batman v Superman. They seem to match the teaser from director Zack Snyder, but they feel a bit computer generated to me. It may be the low light conditions of the shot, supposedly taken during film in in Detroit. » 9/10/14 7:34am 9/10/14 7:34am

Truck shoots out neat smoke rings of fire as its engine explodes

I don't know why this happened (or if the truck somehow stumbled upon some secret Mario Kart item that lets it shoot out fiery smoke rings like a red shell) but it's such a cool effect. The smoke that blows out of the truck's engine forms perfect o rings and then bursts into flames. » 7/29/14 12:07am 7/29/14 12:07am

This is the weirdest engine I have ever seen

According to Duke Engineering, their axial engine is the most efficient and lightest engine you can put in boats, light aircrafts, and generators—the mechanical engine of the (near) future! Maybe. I don't know if their claims are true and I don't really care. I just love watching it in action in this eternal gif. » 7/15/14 11:02am 7/15/14 11:02am

Truck transported on a ropeway going up a 5,400-foot mountain

Linthal 2015 is one of the most fascinating power projects going on in the world right now. When finished, this 2.35-billion-dollar pumped storage system will be able to generate as much power as a nuclear power plant—1,480 MW.

I really wish there were races of these awesome spider mechs

Since I was a little kid, my favorite car racing liveries in the world are Martini, Marlboro, and Gulf. Maybe that's why I love so much these racing machines created by Alex Jaeger, an industrial designer and VFX Art Director at Industrial Light & Magic. That and because they are damn cool. » 3/17/14 4:40pm 3/17/14 4:40pm

The World's Most Expensive 1987 Cadillac Donk Limo

A couple of months ago, a buddy, Zan, had me photograph one of the most epic limos I've ever seen because he was putting it up for sale. It was a restored and very custom 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham limo. It rode on 24" 180 spoke Daytons and air suspension. Other crazy features like a Rolls Royce grille, a… » 2/13/14 2:37pm 2/13/14 2:37pm
