Human powered helicopter

"On June 13th, 2013, the AeroVelo's Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter captured the long standing AHS Sikorsky Prize with a flight lasting 64.1 seconds and reaching an altitude of 3.3 metres. The

competition was initially opened in 1980, and over the course of the 33 years that followed, dozens of teams from around the world pushed the limits of existing technology in pursuit of this once-thought-to-be impossible goal."

Road Rage Assault on Cyclist

Apparently for this, because he had no police record, the driver was not charged. He was brought in for interview and initially claimed provocation, that the cyclist kicked his van and kicked him in the chest. He changed his story when told there was video evidence.

Bittorrent sync

Automatically sync files via secure, distributed technology.

This works like existing cloud file storage systems such as dropbox, box.com etc, except that:

File transfers are encrypted and use the Bittorrent protocol. Your information is never stored on a server in the cloud and your data is protected by private keys. This means that no-one but you can access it.

BitTorrent Sync was designed with privacy and security in mind. All the traffic between devices is encrypted with AES cypher and a 256-bit key created on the base of the secret—a random string (20 bytes or more) that is unique for every folder.
