No matter what item exists out there, there has to be someone who wants to make the BIGGEST ONE EVER! It's the thrill of holding a world record and just knowing that you have the ultimate form of whatever it is you're obsessing about.After seeing this list of 15 world records, I feel like I should have a record of my own. What low hanging fruit in the realm of the World's Biggest is out there, just waiting to be claimed? 15 of the World's Largest Objects via Neatorama

I was browsing through my new December 2007 PC World today, and in the article "Seize the Web" I found pictures of Kipkay's site and several of his videos. I'll try to scan these to get some pictures up, but take a look at the December 2007 issue of PC World, page 110. Congrats Kipkay!

The World Clock Project takes a creative look at time. By taking clocks from around the world they're mixing time-zones and still keeping a relative view. It's thought provocative to think about time and how important it is to the human experience. Time is our most valuable currency, it's really the only thing we have. So it's interesting to see how important keeping track of it has been, we've been using Obelisks as sundials for over 5000 years, some of the most ancient artifacts from egypt were built to keep track of time.It's good to see that The World Clock Project is keeping time on our minds. Give it a shot, upload your clock and let us know where it is[http://world clock project upload http://worldclockproject.org/]-bg

The biggest complaint I keep hearing about the World Cup is about the vuvuzelas, plastic horns that get blown for everything and nothing. This makes me almost glad that I'm missing practically every game because of the broadcast times and the fact that my TV only has bunny ears for reception. Well, PopSci has found that some people are fighting back by filtering out the frequencies of the vuvuzelas at 233 Hz, 466 Hz, 932 Hz, and 1864 Hz. It's a good enough trick that it makes me almost want to upgrade my setup so that I can try it out. Simple Software Can Filter Out That Vuvuzela Whine From World Cup Broadcasts

Invent Your World WinnersView more Microsoft Word documents from Youth Venture.http://socialentrepreneurship.change.org/blog/view/youth_taking_action_a_15_year_old_invents_the_futureI acted as a judge for this competition, and the winning Versatile system was of my favorites from among many interesting and thoughtful entries. Congratulations to Javier!At the tender age of 9, Javier Fernandez-Han found his calling: design for the other 90 percent - help the world's poor meet their basic needs sustainably.Several years of research and design have led to an innovative solution: The VERSATILE System - a mashup of new and adapted technology that treats waste, produces methane and bio-oil as fuel, produces food for humans and livestock, sequesters greenhouse gases, and produces oxygen.What drives this complete energy resource system? Algae - the little organism that could.For his work, Javier, 15, won the top prize in this year's Invent Your World Challenge, sponsored by Ashoka's Youth Venture and the Lemelson Foundation.We spoke to Javier about the VERSATILE System and the need for holistic thinking in the invention sector.

The Weekly World News, home to stories about Bat Boy, Elvis's faked death, and Laundry-eating Space Aliens, closed its doors in late August. While at MIT, my house had a subscription to the WWN that we read right next to the Boston Globe and the New York Times during Sunday morning coffee hours. The WWN was the only paper to be consistently read cover to cover.Check out these obituaries for the WWN. They are positively brillianthttp://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1657629,00.htmlhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/06/AR2007080601293.htmlI'm pig-biting sad to see it go.

This is an urgent call. I think the world would really come to an end because of the increase in natural disasters around the world. I think the world would certainly come to an end with a huge tsunami. Since the effects of global warming is here, within 5-10 years i am afraid to say that the world would certainly end. So do you think this is possible ? Thats why me and a couple of my friends are thinking of making a safehouse or ship where we could be safe in case of a tidal wave or other natural disasters. The problem is that we do not have any clue of what we are doing. i am thinking of making a anchored kinda ship which could acompany 5 people each. This ships would contain oxygen tanks with supply of about 2 years, food and safe drinking water wit seawater purifer, necesary tools and items, survival supplies and other necesary things. This ship should contain an onboard motor engine which could enable the ship to move in water. This ship should atleast protect the passengers from a big tsunami. It would contain a 5 passenger seating with folding beds and solar panels which could also power the engine and equipments inside. i really wanna build this because it's a fun project and could protect peoples lives who are poor and could not afford to go on a boat or are in low lying areas. So what do you think?

LHC activate! So far I'm still alive and it appears that that our universe will not be ending. This comes much to the dismay of false prophets everywhere. Though as gmjhowe points out [http://Gizmodo http://gizmodo.com/5047732/large-hadron-collider-why-you-really-wont-die-today] indicates that our time of death may have been miscalculated. Although the beam is active, the collision wont happen till October. We've been bringing you the lowdown on the LHC for a while now. You know there has been some concern that this would be the [https://www.instructables.com/community/Its-the-End-of-the-World-As-We-Know-It-.../ end of the world] due to the creation of black holes. And now the The Large Hadron Collider is activated and ready for collisions. And those crafty CERN scientists have captured our attention like a presidential scandal.-bg

This is one of those ideas that I came up with yet unfortunately I don't think that I will have the time nor effort to complete it. Yet I would love to see it come into fruition, and that's why I've decided to explain it here. What I would like to see is some crafty individual take the concept of the bristle bot and simply increase the magnitude of the dimensions and make it into a ride-able craft. This also could possibly be entered into the big and small challenge. Any questions that you might come up with I will gladly answer.

Well, not really, but I am going to make and sale tiny shockers on ebay soon, I just need a few questions before I start making, and selling them.Do you wanted the shocker naked (Like in the picture below) and make your own container for them?Do you want the shocker to be packed up in a film canister or box container with a battery holder and a switch?And the most important of all - How much are you willing to pay for them? I need an answer to that!And here is the link to make the shockers.. Build a World's Smallest Electronic Shocker!

In 195 days and six hours, Mark Beaumont rode around the world on a bicycle, totally destroying the previous record of 276 days.Some data: - He ate 6,000 calories a day. Since he's a vegetarian, most of that was plant-based, but he did eat some meat to keep his energy up. - His bike was worth almost $5,000 - He carried 176 pounds of gear, including a tent and a video camera to keep fans updated - He had gear stolen once by crack addicts in a motel - He hopes to have raised 18,000 pounds for charity. - Scariest bit was riding in Istanbul, a city of 15 million. - He rode through 20 countries - Was knocked off his bike once by a driver who ran a red light. linkvia treehugger

Macbook Air, faux-GPS on the iPhone, $20 for an iPod Touch upgrade, apple TV 2, movie downloads. A lot of stuff was announced today.What do you guys thing about it?My only thoughts are that I wish that apple would put the multitouch feature into the Macbooks and Macbook Pros. I am also going to get an iPhone now that it has the location stuff in Google maps. I still wish it had GPS though. Also, with the Time Capsule announced there won't be as much need for an application that a friend and I made to do the exact same thing with any network drive. Check it out here, iTimemachine. We also have a couple other apps so look at those too!

Decided to do a Kickstarter for a card game I've had in mind for a few years. It was mainly just to be used as a character's ability in a comic I do but I'm like "What the hey..." and revised it a few times. I've made a demo set for myself with roughly 54 cards (currently I've made 155+ cards cause I have too much time on my hands). But it could be fun, I've posted a rulebook for the game that will be updated as time passes. Sometimes you just have to see what sticks X3 Link: World Gates: TCG

So I recently got Halo Reach, and I started messing around with Forge a few weeks back. After a deleted prototype, I ended up making "Infinite 8", a racetrack map that has nice wide tracks and is shaped like the infinity logo. It's not quite done (I'm still debating on whether to add grav lift boosters and obstacles) but I have a video of what I have so far on Youtube: If you want, you can post videos of your own forge world maps too! UPDATE: here is me running a finished version of my course:

If you have an estimated one million dollars to spend, there is an auction on January 28, 2012 in Kelowna, B.C., Canada, where they are auctioning off the World's Largest Cut Emerald. see Western Auctions (for more images) Simply amazing! UPDATE: The owner of the emerald has been arrested on "unrelated fraud charges".... He missed the auction as a result. The opening bid for the stone was called at half a million dollars. The stone did not sell. Perhaps buyers were concerned that the "fraud charges" could translate into a "fraudulent stone".... ? Stay tuned....

This is really crazy! The city called Dubai has built the world's largest island - the island is called Palm Deira... Dubai has built two other large islands which has a similar design, the island are called Palm Jumeirah, and the other one is called Palm Jebel Ali.The island was built in a palm tree shape because Dubai wants to give more beach space to the Dubai's residents. The island is made from mainly rubble and sand. Dubai has also built two more islands, one looks like the world which is called "The World", I don't know what the other island is called...it is really amazing what they had built...You can find more information here.

Yes, the title is correct. This site has collected cover art for printings of War of the Worlds from the past 110 years from around the world. It's a fascinating collection of artistic interpretations of H. G. Wells' classic book. Some of the aliens are menacing while others are cute and cuddly or look like a Disney character on acid. One lazy artist even put the USS Enterprise on the cover. WTF? War of the Worlds of the Worldvia Core77

A few days ago, I had built two really tiny electronic shockers, they are smaller than a penny... The shockers I had built, they operate on a 1.5v battery and gives out about 450v at short circuit of 18mA.So, what I am really asking is "is this the world's smallest electronic shocker?", I had done some research about if they are any electronic shockers that is smaller than mine, but I did not find any results... So I am asking you if you know any electronic shockers that is smaller than mine...Also I gave my shocker some more input voltage to see what happens... When I gave it 3v, it gave out about 900v (wow!). And at 4.5v input, it gave out about 1200v (BIGGER WOW!!!). I want to know how much voltage it gives out if I had given it 9v power, but I cannot risk doing that, because I might break my multimeter (it can measure maximum 1000v), I will have to build my self a high voltage probe...Heres the instructable... How to build the World's Smallest Electronic Shocker!!!

When I heard about the "Invent Your World Scholarship" from this forum topic is was really excited. It's a chance to win some serious money for college. So I went over and submitted an idea that I already had to their site. Well, today I got an email saying that they are "very interested in learning more about [my] entry." They want me to submit an action plan to fill out and email back to them.What I wanted to know is if you guys are sure it's legitimate? I don't have any real reason to doubt it, I just wanted to make sure before I start giving them information. My parents are also very distrusting of the internet.Thanks for any help you guys can give!

Let's face it, we really trust science. In fact, studies suggests that the vast majority of people will murder another human being, if a guy in a lab coat tells them it's OK.But surely in their insatiable curiosity and desire to put knowledge above all things, science would never, say, inadvertently set off a chain of events that lead to some sort of disaster that ended the world. Right?Well, here's five experiments that may prove us wrong.Slighty NSFW, as it cointains a few bad words, but this is hilarious!
