Putting out fires in high-rise buildings can pose all kinds of challenges. Beyond using sprinklers inside of the building, it can be very difficult for firefighting equipment to reach floors that are taller than the pressurized fire hoses.
Being one of the world’s big superpowers, China is always building up its military might. One of their many dangerous toys is this armored vehicle from Beijing Zhongzi Yanjing Auto Co. Ltd. It looks like a Humvee of sorts, but this vehicle is deadly.
Do you collect toy cars, minifigs, or other small figures? Check out these awesome miniature display cases I stumbled onto which look like oversize, see-through LEGO bricks.
The T-BRICK comes from Hong Kong outfit Tiny, who makes their own line of miniatures, and decided they wanted a nice way to display them.
We’ve seen drones that mimic real bird flight, but the ones we’ve seen have been for strictly experimental purposes. However, China is taking flight with the idea and taking it seriously. This drone looks like a dove so naturally it is called “Dove”.
It’s an immutable fact of the universe – husbands get bored when their wives go shopping. So the Global Harbour Mall in Shanghai has come up with an interesting way to keep men occupied while their wives shop: ‘husband storage pods‘.
China has some amazing statues, but this Iron Man statue is… weird. It looks like a McDonald’s version of Iron Man that would scare kids when ordering their Happy Meals.
It also looks like an Adventure Time character stole Tony Stark’s suit and is about to lay waste to the Candy Kingdom.
Power lines tend to collect trash when the wind blows. Plastic bags and other assorted trash stuck in the lines can be dangerous. Apparently, in Xiangyang, China, they now send drones up to sort out the mess… with fire!
In-home assistants like Amazon Echo and Google Home are big right now. They can be pretty handy, but they are also limited: They can tell you where to find a can of beer, maybe how to make beer even, but they can’t bring you one from the fridge.
China isn’t the only place in the world where asshats seem oblivious to how high-beam headlights work. You are supposed to use them only when alone on the roads and shouldn’t shine them directly into the other drivers’ eyes.
There’s a story floating around the internet that a woman in China managed to amass an army of 20 boyfriends, and then managed to convince each of them to buy her an iPhone 7. Then she sold them all to buy a house.
See this dog in the pic? That’s Wang Sicong’s dog Coco, and he’s now the proud owner of eight iPhone 7s. The phones were a gift from his master, which is crazy. A rich dog doesn’t need more than four iPhones.
During a recent typhoon in China, residents greeted the day with an unreal sight. A huge moon rolled over pedestrians and drivers, who all no doubt spotted it and at first said, “That’s no moon!” before being swallowed up by it’s cratered face.
Remember that monster bus that towers over traffic and swallows cars whole? Apparently, China actually went and built the thing. For years, the country has been talking about building this beast and it is now a reality.
I would think that a college that looks like a toilet would not be the first place that students would choose to attend – unless they want to flush their money down the drain.
Back in February, the State Council of the Chinese central government released an “urban blueprint” calling for buildings that are “suitable, economic, green and pleasing to the eye,”.
