I'd love to try this! Might be worth a trip.
The Verrückt, the world's tallest water slide, has finally started testing with real, live humans. And the first drop in this POV footage is absolutely terrifying.

The great NZ Weta. One of the biggest insects in the world! Imagine this crawling over you when you're out camping!

We spend a lot of our time trying to convince Kiwis to be proud of weta, just because they are found nowhere else.

Want to make the swittch from Windows to Linux? I'd encourage you to read this article first. 
Are you a Windows user who has heard of Linux and is considering trying this new operating system? Very good. You have made a very wise decision. Not the test itself, although it may be a pleasant experience, but the very fact that you have opened up your mind to new possibilities.

A $500 tower that utilises condensation to provide clean drinking water to remote communities.

No idea you could do this with a cello! An awesome cover of AC/DC's rock classic 'Thunderstruck'! 
Absolutely insane cover of a classic rock song will blow you away. Click here to watch.

This, coupled with solar panels, could make off the grid living viable for us urban dwellers!

A very big thank you to +Air New Zealand for the 1kg Easter egg!

It went down a real treat with our family and friends. It's amazing how many people were willing to help us finish it off!!

Well worth a watch!

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them — yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

Wonder how many earth like planets will be detected using this new approach?

A great invention! Being able to clean solar panels at night, without water will significantly increase efficencies of existing solar technology. 
The dusty desert environments where many solar plants are located can make their photovoltaic arrays dirty and reduce their effectiveness. Cleaning the pane...

Story
Tagline
An optimist, with a passion for technology and science
Introduction
Enjoy the good things in life. Like to get outdoors, meet people, experience different cultures and learn more about this vibrant world around us.

I like to post about all manner of topics. From technology to the environment.

Think outside the square, don't believe everything you hear. Inquire and investigate to find your own truths.

Some of the most interesting conversations you'll ever have are with people you've just met. - Unknown
