- 22 countries, 11,141 miles, one epic adventureFelix Starck set out one day to see the world. In June 2013, he left his home on a heavily laden touring-bicycle and didn't stop moving — pedaling most of the way — for over a year. In all, Felix bicycled through 22 countries and covered more than 11,000 miles of street, road, trail and pathway.
- Using chemistry to make otherworldly artJapanese artist Iori Tomita beautifully blends science and art in his series "New World Transparent Specimens" by chemically bleaching and then dying preserved animal bodies. The process uses a chemical mix that breaks down the proteins of the animal while leaving behind collagen that lets the body hold its form. Dyes are used to color the bones re […]
- Bo-taoshi: Exploring the beautifully dangerous sport of pole-topplingThere are dangerous sports like football and wingsuit flying, and there are wacky sports like wife carrying and pumpkin chuckin'
- Houseboats combine the best of tiny (on land or water)We love tiny houses here at MNN. A tiny home is just that — a house that cranks down the square footage in exchange for lower energy needs, clutter potential and overall costs. Tiny homes are used as weekend cabins, backyard office space, full time residences and even hotels.
- Take a swim through the Austrian park that's covered by a lake half the yearThe village of Tragoess (or Tragöß), Austria is home to Green Lake (or Grüner See), a small lake with a hugely variable water level. In the winter the lake is no more than 3-6 feet deep while in the spring melting glacial waters can push those levels north of 30 feet.
- You'll never see a dog more excited to go swimmingWalter the dog is a Labrador who loves to go swimming. I mean, this dog is just nuts about jumping into the water for a dip. Check out this great video shot with a well-positioned GoPro camera in Siracusa, Sicily. Can't get enough dog videos? Check out these posts here on MNN:
- 'Signs from the Near Future' imagines what the world may be likeWe live in the future of my childhood. When I was a young boy kicking my way through the 80s, the future that I imagined, aided by the popular media of my time, wasn't too far off from the reality found outside my door. As the writer William Gibson put it, "The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed." I count mysel […]
- Prairie dog needs help squeezing out of too-tiny tunnelCheck out this adorable video of a couple who stopped their car to rescue a prairie dog that was having a hard time squeezing out of a tunnel in the road.
- Wingsuit insanity: Skimming the tree tops and surfing the gapsWe're big fans of wingsuit flying here at MNN so I knew I had to post this video as soon as I saw it. Wingsuit flying is, more or less, the act of throwing yourself at the ground and missing. Practitioners ride the so-called ground effect, gliding close to the ground in webbed suits reminiscent of flying squirrels, as they surf down the vertical gradien […]
- No sense of direction? Vibrating shoes could helpThe Indian tech firm Lechal is working on a project set to release this fall that merges insertable footbeds with your smartphones to do things like track the number of steps you take, alert you if you leave your phone behind, and, perhaps most interestingly, help you navigate a path between two points in a city by buzzing left or right to indicate the direc […]
