"Making use of a ceiling mounted camera, the system reads in the borders of the table, location of the cue ball, and angle of the pool cue to make the sort of calculations a real shark makes in his head. Then, it spits out the likely path on the table with a projector."
Equiped with twin turbine engines, normally used in RC jets, Fritz Unger from Germany is working on 'Project Skyflash' that is seen here getting closer to putting himself into the air with his homemade jetpack. Fritz Unger and his team want to be able to lauch a human being 25,000 feet into the sky right from ground level, just like Iron Man...Watch the video.
Multimillionaire Dennis Tito has created a nonprofit group called Inspiration Mars and green-lit a program to send a single couple on a 501-day trip around the red planet and return to earth, beginning in January 5th, 2018. The mission is described as "high-risk", which is to be expected when you lock a married couple in a cramped capsule for a year and a half. Under the audacious but bare-bones plan, the spacecraft would blast off less than five years from now and pass within 100 miles of the Martian surface. The cost was not disclosed, but outsiders put it at more than $1 billion.
"A celestial harmony makes such a plan feasible -- a once-every-15-years alignment of Earth and Mars wherein a modest craft can shoot there and back with minimal fuel.
The risks of this mission soar beyond those NASA would allow, said Tito adviser Jonathan Clark, a former NASA space doctor now at the Baylor College of Medicine.
Beyond low Earth orbit, cosmic radiation rises dramatically, upping the risk of cancer. If illness or injury occur, there is no hospital for millions of miles, no chance to abort, and no escape.
The nearly 18-month trip will cover 818 million miles.
Time spent within 60,000 miles of Mars: 10 hours."

An M4 Treadwall has the advantage of being able to fit into the smallest of spaces and tightest of budgets.
This value-packed alternative to the M6 comes in several different variations that still allow all of the climbing and fitness potential of its larger cousin.
Adapted from the already innovative design of our previous rotating climbing walls, the M4 boils the concept down into its simplest form. You can still change the angles, you can still control the speed, you can still have all of the fun, and now you can do it anywhere.
Both experienced climbers and new users alike will instantly benefit from the core strength and balance gained from treadwall training.
Cross training and total body workouts are becoming increasingly popular due to their efficiency and speed.
The treadwall fits perfectly into these types of workouts, allowing long cardio burns at the easier angles and quick muscle building workouts on the steep.
