Japanese tsunami creates huge whirlpool

Gear  |  Video
Footage aired on Japanese television shows a boat perilously close to the eye of a huge whirlpool.
[Note ]The quake, which hit at 2:46pm local time, triggered a tsunami that washed ashore ships and devastated all in its path.
Waves up to 30 feet high engulfed the coastal city of Sendai, 230 miles north east of Tokyo, and grounded ships in Hachinohe a further 150 miles north.
All Japanese ports have been closed and tsunami warnings have been issued for areas across East Asia and the western coast of South America, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
The magnitude 8.9 quake surpasses the Great Kanto quake of September 1, 1923, which had a magnitude of 7.9 and killed more than 140,000 people in the Tokyo area.

"What does the top edge of say, your utility closet door look like? I'm betting that you've never seen it, even if you've lived in your home for awhile. And although there's not a lot of room to hide stuff in there, well, if you're like me, the stuff you want to hide is usually on the smaller side. Not many people think of the space inside the door as a hiding spot, but it's right there in easy reaching distance when you need to get to it. And it's devious enough that, yes, I think this trick will still be effective even after I blog it all over the web" By Sean Michael Ragan.

Screwdriver-powered vehicle "EX"

Screwdriverpowered vehicle EX
Gear  |  Bike
The EX trike, designed and built by Nils Ferber, Sebastian Auray, Ruben Faber and Ludolf von Oldershausen. Using two 18-volt-screwdrivers as engines, the "EX" accelerates its driver up to 30 km/h! With a frame inspired by a bare skeleton complete with visible organs, the EX’s drive components are mostly constructed from modified bike parts, while the frame and unique spine-shaped joint used for steering were custom-milled on a CNC machine.
"Excentricity is defined as a deviation from what is ordinary or customary. To match this definition we couln´t just modify an existing vehicle but had to start designing something new from scratch. The result is a completely new driving concept: The driver lies headlong on his three-wheeled vehicle and accelerates the "EX" with sprawled out arms up to 30 km/h.
Eccentrically is also how the steering works: A specially developed joint tilts the back wheel and leans the driver´s weight dynamically into the curve.
The driver controls the vehicle with brake and gas handles and by tilting the back wheel with its body"
