This totally crazy wingsuit video made me stop breathing

Okay, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically inches away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is… »9/26/15 12:00pm9/26/15 12:00pm

Seeing a ladybug take flight in slow motion is actually quite surprising 

This is just so cool. I love how the dotted red shells split and then the wings slowly swing out and then begin to flap and the ladybug takes flight like some sophisticated alien space ship that’s ready to swarm together. It’s also really cool to see this angle of a ladybug taking flight because it’s so different than… »8/19/15 10:30pm8/19/15 10:30pm

Incredible photo of hawks tossing food to each other in midair

Photographer Phoo Chan captured this perfect sequence of a Northern Harrier tossing prey to one of its baby chick hawks in midair. It’s an amazing display of coordination, like a little game of pitch and catch between a dad and his kid. You can see the adult hawk drop the prey and then watch the offspring catch it, as… »7/31/15 7:40pm7/31/15 7:40pm

Beautiful video of beautiful birds flying in slow motion

Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world. What else even comes close? Being able to hold your breath really long? Change colors? Grow back a chopped claw? Flying tops them all. Here’s a collection of birds flying in slow motion just to… »7/29/15 6:16pm7/29/15 6:16pm

A Cup-Holding Device Mount Makes Flying Slightly More Bearable

Gone are the days when flying was like taking a luxury cruise. Passengers are now herded onto planes and into seats that barely leave enough room to breath. There are ways to make flying slightly more enjoyable, though, like a tablet mount called the Airhook that also holds a drink so you can leave your tray table… »7/29/15 9:40am7/29/15 9:40am

Yes, There Is an Airport Being Designed Just For Animals

Air travelers have long complained that they’re treated like cattle; and now cattle will actually be treated better than most economy passengers. An entire airport terminal is being built for animals, including a dog spa with “pawdicures” and a bone-shaped doggie wading pool. Yes, it’s all very real, and it will be… »7/21/15 3:30pm7/21/15 3:30pm

Flying a Solar Plane Around the World Takes One Hell of a Ground Crew

In about half an hour, the Solar Impulse solar-powered plane is going to touch down in Hawaii, at the end of a record-setting flight across the Pacific. Attention and praise are quite rightly going to be heaped on pilot André Borschberg, who will have been peeing into a funnel for 120 hours straight. But behind the… »7/03/15 11:30am7/03/15 11:30am

Video: Flying man in wing suit slices right through a hole in a mountain

It’s never not pure insanity to fly in a wing suit. It’s never not pure insanity to fly in a wing suit straight through a tiny sliver of a hole on a mountain. These devils of dare are made up of such extremes that they’re not even human. Watch as extreme pyscho Uli Emanuele rip through a mountain after hiking it.… »7/01/15 8:40pm7/01/15 8:40pm

Video: Bad ass glowing wing suit flight over a city at night

Roberta Mancino—wingsuit flyer, base jumper, sky diver, and model—pulled off a sparkling stunt: she jumped out of a helicopter in an illuminated wing suit over Panama City at night. The backdrop of the city lights mixed with her glowing suit makes for some arresting visuals. Flying on a wing suit is already crazy… »6/25/15 8:40pm6/25/15 8:40pm

Look how amazingly still a hummingbird's body is when it flies

Here’s a video of hummingbirds flying in slow motion. It’s really cool to see how different the speed of its wings move versus the stillness of its body. It’s like the video is in fast forward when you’re staring at the wings but completely stopped when you just see the body. I’ll never not be impressed by… »6/17/15 8:20pm6/17/15 8:20pm

Terrifying Oculus Demo Teaches You How to Survive a Water Crash Landing

When you get on a plane, the last thing you want to think about is what you’ll have to do to survive an emergency crash landing in the water. But knowing exactly how to safely evacuate a plane could one day save your life, so researches created a terrifying Oculus Rift emergency landing simulation that looks far more… »4/21/15 12:30pm4/21/15 12:30pm

Crazy wingsuit guy smashes right through a sign while flying super fast

The last thing I would want to do while flying in a wingsuit (other than fly in a wingsuit) is to blast through a sign while flying. But wingsuit pilot Sebastian Alvarez is not me. He angled his flight route perfectly so that he would smash the Chilean flag sign on his way down. That is some sniper level of precision. »4/08/15 10:41pm4/08/15 10:41pm

A Flying Star Destroyer Drone Looks Terrifying As It Descends From Above

If the opening shot of Star Wars emphasized one thing, it's that the Empire's Star Destroyers are gigantic imposing spaceships that everyone in the galaxy should fear. The same goes for Oliver C's lastest quadcopter creation: a flying Star Destroyer that looks just as intimidating as it descends on you from above. And… »3/26/15 1:23pm3/26/15 1:23pm
