Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

RO&AD, an architectural firm whose name sounds very much like a quote from an intoxicated Chris Farley, recently designed The Trench Bridge. A pedestrian foot path designed to make us rethink the way we look at bridges, this one crosses the moat in front of Fort de Roovere in Halsteren. A neat concept, but one that would only be applicable on a small scale to bodies of water that stay at a constant depth.

3 U Penn students developed the µWave (microwave, get it?), an Arduino based kitchen hack that plays Youtube videos while you wait for noms. Once you set the cooking time the program goes to Youtube and finds a highly-rated video for the exact length. Read more about it at the project's website.
