A video uploaded a couple of days ago is causing widespread debate about what exactly was in the air hovering above protesters in Moscow. The object was witnessed by 25,000 protesters. Initial speculation was that it was a helicopter but it is clearly not a helicopter based on the HD videos that have been released. Was it an extraterrestrial UFO? We took a look at the commentary to find out what we think. Continue Reading
The Toyota FUN-Vii, like most concept cars, will probably never happen. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not awesome. The entire exterior of the car is one big screen, a touch screen. You can change the color, pattern, art of the car on the fly.
Researchers are using miniature helicopters, controlled by computers, to construct walls. They say the technology will lead to new ways of constructing buildings for architects and construction workers. The technology resembles swarms of insects more than anything else. Continue Reading
A crematorium in the UK is going green in a big way. The Durham Crematorium is going to install turbines in its cremation chimneys to generate electricity which it will then sell back to the grid.
Two of the burners will be used for generating electricity to sell and a third will be used to power and heat the chapel and offices. They estimate they can generate enough electricity to power 1,500 televisions.

The first urine controlled video game is up and running in London. The game is at the The Exhibit Bar in Belham and is becoming quite popular. Players can select from one of three available games and can even post their scores to facebook and twitter.
Gordon MacSween did not know how people would react to his creation but was convinced as soon as the beta was up and running. Apparently, much like the little TV’s at gas stations these days, the idea is to get you to stare at something for those 55 seconds you would normally be doing something else.
The games appear to be fairly simplistic. One game involves downhill skiing and another has something to do with penguins.
The game is going to be rolled out across the UK in the early part of next year.
Samsung’s new Galaxy Nexus phone, which came out in the UK today, is amazing people with its new features. It sports the new Siri-esque feature in Android 4.0, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich. It also has facial recognition and an incredible display. The screen is 4.65″ and has an AMOLED display which is amazing according to all those who have seen it. The device has a 1.2 GHZ dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. It also has a 5 megapixel camera and 1080p recording features.
The ad really does well with selling the device’s new perks:
