Hoverboards ruined Christmas, burst into flames, look foolish, are widely banned, and don’t hover. Lame all around. Except when you turn one of them into a famous magical item from one of the world’s most beloved anime series. That’s what this guy did when he dressed up as Goku from Dragon Ball and motored around…
We’ve seen plenty of dead malls reborn as unusual things, from high schools to greenhouses. The Taiwanese city of Tainan is one-upping them all by tearing down an aging mall to create a network of sandy, shady lagoons.
Mass dampers are designed to counteract the swaying of a skyscraper as it’s buffeted by strong winds or earthquakes. But it’s incredibly rare to see one of these huge devices moving more an a few inches. Unless, of course, there’s a typhoon nearby.
I knew traffic in Taiwan was crazy, but this video is even crazier than my worst nightmares. Look at a gazillion mopeds going down a highway ramp. No, this is not a moped race. It's just normal daily traffic. Unbelievable.
Like the Samurai's mempo, the uniforms of many of today's Special Forces units play dual roles. Not only do they protect the wearer's face and conceal his identity, they terrify the pants off of the enemy. Take the newly unveiled uniforms of Taiwan's Special Forces for example. They look like something out of Army of…
Sometimes companies do stupid things to market their products. A silly commercial here. A ridiculous junket there. That's all fine and good, but sometimes companies overdo it, companies like Samsung who just got slapped with a $340,000 fine in Taiwan for illegally paying people to trash talk HTC in forums.
Uh oh. Apple Maps, for all of its blurry, melting world faults, was actually a little too clear in one area: it revealed a top-secret, $1.23 billion ultra-high-frequency radar of Taiwan for everyone to see. Um, that's not good.
This Taiwanese girl just learned the laws of gravity from her iPad. Not the apps inside the iPad, but the iPad itself. While holding the tablet over her head in bed, she dozed off. That's when Newton decided to deliver his first and second laws directly to her face, in the form of a mouthful of Apple technology.
Meth and drones, meth and drones—there's hardly a more imaginable combo that pairs better. The PB&J of espionage. At least according to a Taiwanese duo, accused of an attempt to smuggle out military secrets and drugs to China.
When you're in Taiwan and you use the ATM, you should be wary of the English interface. Apparently the gangster will use this to cheat you.
It was great to see the Muppets back in theaters, but Kermit plucking away on a banjo is no match for the incredibly lifelike performances of these Taiwanese martial arts hand puppets that can even breathe fire.
Ai Wei Wei, arguably China's most famous artist, has a new exhibit in Taiwan right now. The piece you see, called Forever Bicycles, features thousands of bicycles welded together to stunning visual effect.
When the Taichung Airport in Taiwan was relocated, city planners set about redeveloping the area into "a vibrant oasis" that showed off the latest and greatest in green technology and focusing on sustainable, symbiotic strategies. The result—the zero-emission Bionic-Arch.
Floating singing lips are creepy but seeing a robotic head with dark soul sucking eyes (that double as cameras) try to sing might be just as bad. Especially when she's horribly shrieky and a little too realistic.
Researchers from Taiwan have developed an eco-friendly type of electronic paper. The rewritable i2R e-paper uses heat to store images, isn't backlit and does not consume electricity.
If it wasn't true before, it's definitely true now. Hacking isn't just for giggles, it's a major threat to international security.
A Taiwanese man was inspired to build a green Android robot. So he grabbed a trash can, some DIY electronics experience and went to work.
