Amphicruiser - 4x4 Amphibious Vehicle

Amphicruiser – 4×4 Amphibious Vehicle

it may not look like an amphibious vehicle, but rest assure that the Amphicruiser is totally capable of handling the water – thanks to its onboard waterjet propulsion which allows it to swiftly transit from land going four-by-four to a water cruising vehicle at a press of a button. and we talked about ‘water’, we are not referring to puddle of water, but a real open lake – just thought we’d make it clear. unlike the Watercar Panther that still has a hint of boat to it, this creation by Netherlands-based Dutch Amfibious Transport‘s capability as a watercraft is completely inconspicuous, which is the beauty of this thing. in fact, it looks more military than civilian – attributed by its matte finish and a la-Land Cruiser boxy appearance. though, it does so at the expense of its water speed, which clocks in at an extremely humble 13 km/h (8 mph) – which is obviously pale by comparison to Panther’s.

Pizza Game Changer - Pizza Cake

Will This Pizza Cake Be The Pizza Game Changer?

innovation is hardly a term that applies to food, much less pizza, but that’s exactly what Boston Pizza wants to achieve with its Pizza Game Changers campaign. the pizza chain is inviting Canadian fans to vote on their “latest innovations” and the most ‘backed’ innovations will be made. the list of innovations put up includes Pizza Mint, Gas-powered Pizza Cutter (!), Pizza Cheese Clippers (we want this!), Pizza Cake and more. there are a few more ‘regular’ pizza-based items (Pizza Taco, Sriracha Chicken Pizza and stuff) that looks like they would make it to the menu, but oddly, nobody voted on them. we can see where this is going – the weirder it gets, the more ‘backers’ there will be. but hey, we are not judging. speaking of which, if the Canadian pizza lovers have their way, the Pizza Cake might be a reality. at the time of this writing, the Pizza Cake has nearly 5x more votes than the second place Pizza Mint and if that trend continues, it is safe to say it might be reality.

PaperBoy Wine

PaperBoy – Wine Bottled In Cardboard Bottles

tree-hugging wine lovers rejoice cos’ there is now an eco-friendlier way of drinking wine. no kidding. who would have thought it could happen? well, it all starts from the PaperBoy Wine, a wine born out of a collaboration between California-based green packaging firm Ecologic Brands and Sonoma County-based winery Truett-Hurst. in case you are wondering what the heck a packaging company has to do with the alcoholic beverage, well, they are the folks who invented the cardboard bottles. these cardboard bottles are made of compressed recycled cardboard, formed into the shape of a standard Bordeaux wine bottle and lined with plastic on the inside to keep the liquid locked in. it is a no brainer as to why cardboard is better in this case. first, since it uses recycled cardboards, it helps to minimize the waste going to the landfills and second, cardboard has about 91 percent recycling rate as compare to glass, which has around 28 percent. on contrary to belief, glass is not as recyclable due to a variety of factors, and composition being one them.

Sonic Screwdriver Wand: When Doctor Who Meets Harry Potter

there is little in common between the world’s most doc, Doctor Who and wizard whiz kid Harry Potter except that they both hails from the U.K, but that doesn’t make a Sonic Screwdriver Wand anymore ridiculous – in fact, we thought that’s a pretty cool idea. we are not sure where you could purchase one after the one custom by Praeciarus Wands sold out, but if you have the knack with machinery, in particular wood working rigs, then Instructables member CabbitCastle is more than happy to show you how to craft one for yourself. though also based on the 10th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, CabbitCastle’s iteration takes on a slightly different twist by fusing it with Romana’s Sonic Screwdriver to complete the wand look. the entire Sonic Screwdriver Wand is crafted from wood (like a wizard’s wand should), turned on a micro lathe as two separate parts (the Doctor’s and Romana’s) and joint together by means of wood dowel and wood glue.
