Four years ago, Boarder Cross became an Olympic sport surrounded in excitement and praise. This time around, Ski Cross is making its debut carrying the same format as Boarder Cross, and the potential for the same positive response. I’m all for new sports being added to the winter Olympics, anything to dilute the presents of Ice Dancing.

So, to all you crazy cats out there who love the thrill of the track, make sure you’re suited up with the proper shizznit as it can literally save your life.
These amazing embryonic animal photographs of dolphins, sharks, dogs and elephants are from a new National Geographic Documentary called “Extraordinary Animals in the Womb”.

The title says it all really. Hit the play button bud.
This is bloody awesome. Now all I want to do with my life is try and live there! Nothing else really matters anymore.

As well as its unique design, the HexaKopter has GPS, and a built on camera to records its journey in the air. With the ability to move more like an UFO than a conventional helicopter, this just made made my ‘Things to buy before I die’ list!
Well, Well, Well.What do we have here
This G Point Mouse looks familiar, I just cant put my finger in it on it. The scroll button and the quick access button combine to take the place of the… well you know, or maybe you don’t and that’s your problem Currently only a concept piece.
