Here’s Paul George’s 3rd Nike Shoe In NASA-inspired Colorway

Technically, this is the fourth Paul George Nike shoes, but in Nike’s perspective, it is the third signature shoe because, PG2.5 is consider a branch off of the PG2. Don’t ask why it so. I am a marketeer by training and even then, I hate how marketeers tried to manipulate words like how financier likes manipulating numbers. Anywho, what you see here is the Limited Edition Nike PG NASA Shoes that went official last week and as you can see, it is quite a looker.

Some China Cities Are Using Rocket Launchers To Fight High-rise Fires

Net Guard UAV Concept proposed a novel way of saving people trapped in a high-rise fire, but it did not address the still raging fire that could potentially bring the building down, causing an even more catastrophic event. Aerones Drone seems to have that covered, but alas, it is limited by the length of the hose and tether. While the rest of the world seems to be happy to rely on the existing mitigation systems, such as sprinkle, fire curtain and whatnot, a Chinese company has adapted military tech to develop a radical, new kind of high-rise fire-fighting system.

3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive

3D printed titanium is a luxury that’s probably reserved for companies like Bugatti.

The test vindicated the power of titanium when under the duress of extreme heat which, if you think of it, makes absolute sense because of intense heat generated when stopping one of the world’s fastest cars, but on a skateboard, specifically the trucks? Well, lets just say it is way an overkill for a significantly less stressful application. Continue reading 3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive
