The Shard in London became Europe's tallest skyscraper back in July and now, on November 1, Moscow's Mercury City Tower topped out and stole the coveted position by a mere 95 feet (1,112 feet compared to The Shard's 1,017 feet). Moscow is already home to the largest number of highrises in Europe and Mercury City joins four other buildings in Russia to make up half of the ten tallest on the continent.
Kepler Motors, founded by world speed record holder Russ Wicks, unveiled its MOTION supercar at the Dubai International Motor Show three years ago. Back then, we weren't sure if this car would ever make it beyond the concept stage. Now, only 50 of these lightweight hybrids will be made and each one is being assembled by hand.
It's been a year since the last Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition, and since then, the world has gotten a lot smaller. Or a lot bigger. Whichever way things are going, Nikon has collected a whole bunch of spectacular new pictures of it, and we've got a gallery of all of the winners.
If artist Mads Peitersen ran the world, I wouldn't be telling you about the iPad Mini, but instead the new bioPhone 5, with a dual-valve processor and twice the intestinal track length of previous generations. Also, Apple now covers cracked bioPhone ribs under Apple Care. It's a bold new world!
Alan Sailer is a master of high-speed photographs — and this gallery of childhood toys mid-explosion is no exception.
With all those old Soviet-era military facilities lying empty in Russia, so many of them get repurposed into the type of facility that the old Politburo would never have approved of. This gigantic structure, called Bunker 42, lies about 200 feet under the downtown Moscow streets, and has been transformed into something that looks like it's equal parts Star Wars bar and spacecraft from the movie 2001.
Artist and web-comic author Brad Mcginty knows how to appeal to us. His Anatomy series of artwork and t-shirts exists at the wonderful nexus of science, fiction, and things that we think are cool.
Most of the time, DVICE isn't really about making your life better. We mostly just care about tech and science and lasers and sex gnomes and that sort of thing. Today, that changes, as we bring you a gallery of neat little tricks that can make your life better.
Quad bikes and jet skis can both be tons of fun, but the ride ends when you reach the boundary between land and water. The Gibbs Quadski crosses that barrier, allowing you to keep riding no matter what terrain you encounter.
If there was ever a time to do a big-budget stop-motion Lego Batman movie, it's now. Right here's an enormous Batcave, built by two men. Standing shoulder to shoulder, as you'll see in the gallery below, their creation is wider than the both of them combined. Editor's Note: We'd like to give a shout out to this amazing tweet here, which immensely improves on our headline.
