The Rest Of The World Wishes Their Night Sky Shone Like It Does In Tasmania

Video: Light pollution. It really screws up the view. It would be so great if the stars in the sky could still be seen over big metropolitan areas. But it doesn’t work like that. You have to go far away from civilisation into deserts and nature to see the stars and cosmos the way they are meant to be seen. David Oliver Lennon wanted to bring the beautiful night sky closer, so he layered the sky in Tasmania on top of the skylines of big cities. It’s truly stunning.

Watch Crazy Guys In Wingsuits Fly Right Next To The Face Of City Buildings

Video: There’s a holy crap moment in this wingsuit video where you hold your breath and wonder if the guys flying in the air are actually going to crash into the side of the building and if you should turn off the video. But then they make a perfect turn move and basically zip right next to multiple buildings on their path. They’re so close they could probably high five someone on the balcony. It’s impressive.

Neat Chart Shows The Tallest Planned Buildings In History

Briefly: The tallest building in the world? The Burj Khalifa. Duh. But if plans had worked out differently for other buildings, the Burj Khalifa wouldn’t even crack the top 10 tallest buildings in the world. Here’s a cool chart showing all the tallest planned buildings in the world. Some of them are still ongoing while others have long been canceled. I wish they all existed in real life.

Watch An Incredible Drone Fly At Crazy Speeds Through An Abandoned Building

Wow. This drone zooms so fast through this abandoned hospital in Spain that I’m pretty sure it might’ve reached warp speed. All the footage in the video below, taken by CHARPU FPV, is in real time. It’s pretty amazing control to fit into such small holes in the building and fly so gracefully through the hallways at such ridiculous speeds.

An Acrylic Tunnel Turns A London Museum Into A Sci-Fi Alice In Wonderland

You’re staring through a new installation at London’s V&A Museum, called Mise-en-abyme. The narrowing isn’t just perspective — those acrylic archways really are getting smaller.

Here's How You Move A 363 Tonne, 404-Year-Old Japanese Castle

400: That’s about how many years old Japan’s Hirosaki Castle is. It’s also how many (US) tons it weighs. And yet it was successfully lifted two feet in the air and 70 metres down the road.

London's Crazy Olympic Park Tower Is Being Turned Into A Giant Slide

Anish Kapoor’s Orbit Tower, built to somehow celebrate the Olympics and give people a reason to visit East London once the event finished, is getting a reworking. It’s being turned into an enormous helter skelter, in possibly one of the greatest public planning decisions in millennia.

The World's Deadliest Construction Projects, Visualised

The infrastructure being built for Qatar’s World Cup is using the most cutting-edge construction technologies. Yet due to the poor treatment of migrant workers, an estimated 4000 people could die building it. A new timeline of construction deaths shows this inconsistency throughout history: Even though construction methods have improved over time, worker conditions don’t always keep pace.

This Robot Stacks Bricks Into Impossible-Looking Building Facades

Bricks are known for their strength and impenetrability — not necessarily for their light and airy facades. But a Swiss firm has created just that, stacking bricks into a sculptural helix-like lattice that zig-zags across the front of a building. And they did it with the help of a robot.

Drone Captures Demolition Of An Old Building

The Park Avenue Hotel in Detroit was recently demolished and TheGadgetGuy11’s drone was there to capture the amazing aerial views. It’s really cool to see the building up close and then see it pretty much get instantly taken down in a cloud of smoke and ash.
