Drone deliveries are the future. Years from now we really will be able to order something online and have it dropped off at our door hours later by a tiny flying robot. But presently there are some issues with drone deliveries. And they’re only partially related to the FAA. Quadcopter-based deliveries have to struggle…
This looks incredibly fun. Filmed by the good times having Devin Super Tramp, it shows people hitting a piñata while ziplining. It's a good excuse to have a whack at things while zipping on by but also looks like a fun video game happening in real life.
Where we're going, we don't need roads... we need a zipline, thought these intrepid Russians. Because, in order to cross a violent river without a bridge nearby, crazy Russians thought it would be smart to strap their car to a zipline and let it fly by to the other side. I guess.
Our crazy awesome friend DevinSuperTramp and his gang of crazier and even more awesome friends came up with ways to make a zipline ever more fun: tying a knot in the middle of the line, running two people at once to catapult a person and trying as many insane tricks with skis as possible.
This is absolutely nuts: watch people riding as fast as 87mph (140km/h) on the ZipFlyer Nepal, the world's craziest, most extreme zipline.
The first zipline roller coaster in the United States debuted at Florida EcoSafaris in St. Cloud, Florida and turns ziplining into a curvy course of thrill seeking fun. Instead of ordinary straight line ziplining, which is plenty scary already, the zipline roller coaster throws sharp turns and big drops. Fun!
It sounds like a dream, but the circumstances here are not quite so fantastical—those that must cross a collapsed bridge to get to work have been using a zip line since last year's earthquake.
They built a new building at Google's Mountain View campus, but it happened to be separated from the building with the cafeteria in it by a ravine. While the logical solution would be to build a bridge, not at Google. No, they built a zip line. The insurance this company has must be great. Unfortunately, the city of…
The picture is funny, but the invention is actually legitimately neat. The Alongo Happy Landing Escaper is a wire system that mounts to an emergency exit or beefy window frame, deploys mechanically (without a need for electricity) and allows riders up to 400 pounds to slowly descend from a high rise building safely…
There's a South African zip line that claims to be the highest one in the world. But how about this one that takes Colombian kids from their hillside village to school? Well, faced with one minute of eyeball-spinning terror 1200 feet above the jungle, or a two-and-a-half hour hike, which one would you take? [Spluch]
