Wonderful Visual Representation of Wind

Here is a very cool data visualization of the current wind over the entire United States.  Pretty sweet stuff and better viewed in a Chrome browser I’m told.  I just find this visually fascinating.

Robotic Flying Bird

A very cool solution to an age-old challenge. How do birds fly and can we build something that flies like they do? These guys did it with the help of some new technology.

Wild Water Dancing

This is a very cool machine. Probably more challenging to operate safely than you think, but still very cool.

Clever Airplane Frames

One look is all you need to get this concept.  I would suspect that this would look best with pictures of the sky or the ramp at an airport, but maybe other things would work too.

Turning Air into Water

This is a great invention.  Winner of the James Dyson award, this device was envisioned by a Melbourne design student as an answer to Australian heat and draught situations.  It takes hot humid air and turs it into water for irrigation.  See how he does it in this linked article.
