Wired: Get Ready To Kickstart Project Hexapod:

"Meet Stompy. He’s a hexapod – a six-legged robot being built by a team of 15 students and three instructors at Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, Massachusetts. And if the rendering above didn’t tip you off, Stompy holds two passengers, can walk over a car and takes up nearly two lanes of road. Needless to say, Stompy is awesome."

Bloomberg: 'Jetman' Soars Over Rio: Video

"Yves 'Jetman' Rossy, a record-holding Swiss aerialist, flew his carbon-kevlar jetwing over Rio de Janiero on Thursday morning. During his 11-minute flight he reached a speed of 186 mph and an altitude of almost 4,000 feet."

Amanda Erickson @ Atlantic CitiesGreening Traffic Lights By Turning Them Off :

"But how's this for an idea to make traffic patterns greener (and, proponents say, safer): stop using traffic lights altogether. The so-called "naked streets" movement has gained traction across Europe, even in major cities like London."

[Note to jargon-heads, naked streets = shared space].
