German geniuses hit 800Mbps with light bulb WLAN…


Last year, Chinese scientists showed off some new old-school tech, transmitting data with blue LEDs that flicker faster than the human eye can perceive. This throwback to the good ol’ days of IR receivers was able to hit speeds of 2Mbps but leave it to the fine folks at the Heinrich Hertz Institute to push the light bulb networking tech to the extremes! Earlier this year researchers hit 500Mbps with white LEDs; now, using a combination of white, green, blue & red, the team ramped that up to 800Mbps, officially putting Ethernet on notice. The line-of-sight networking won’t actually replace your standard Cat 5 line or WiFi router but it could find a home in places like hospitals where radio-based wireless technology can cause problems for sensitive equipment. With any luck, we’ll soon be bathing our homes in HD-streaming illumination.

The world’s only actual turbine powered Batmobile…


This is the only Batmobile created that makes fiction reality! It is powered by a military spec Boeing turbo shaft engine driving the rear wheels through a semi automatic gearbox. It features a custom tube frame with fully independent suspension, disc brakes & a sequential shifter. It runs on kerosene, diesel or jet fuel & has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper. The car is registered & insured for the road in the United States. Built in 2011 by Casey Putsch of Putsch Racing.
