Video: Flying a drone over Dubai? It's been done. Flying as a jetman all across the most famous buildings of Dubai? That too, has been done. It speaks to how nutty and batshit stunts have become (and how accessible it is for us to watch such nutty stunts) that normal nutty and batshit stunts can't be done anymore because well, they have been done. Here's something new though: Team Blacksheep flew a FPV Racer drone straight down the skyscrapers of Dubai. It feels like you're falling down to the ground (as opposed to just seeing majestic aerial views).
Video: Watch as an eagle takes off from the Burj Khalifa and flies high up above Dubai in this incredible video that shows you the stunning view from the eagle's point of view. It's fun to see it calibrate itself at 800m in the air and then recognise its landing target and take an immediate dive toward its trainer.
Rent at the 163-storey Burj Khalifa doesn't come cheap. While a one-bedroom "only" costs $US55,000 a year (according to CNN), it's the $US25,000 service fee that really gets you. Now, a fight over these fees may force tenants to make the climb home on foot.
There's a lot to know about Dubai's towering Burj Khalifa. Every creak and every inch is constantly monitored and explored. But sometimes you just want to see something lit up in all its glory. And that's the point where you get in a helicopter and go take some awesome night shots. You have access to a helicopter, right?
In January, Dubai photog Gerald Donovan showed us what the earth looks like from the pinnacle of the world’s tallest building, thanks to a 360-degree panorama that was ‘shopped to remove the Burj Khalifa itself. But Donovan today released the original, undoctored image -- and it’s even better than the first one he released.
Your feet in a front of a sunset. Your feet sprawled on a grassy knoll. Your feet surrounded by cats. Whatever the situation, Instagram is about giving your friends and admirers a chance to peer through sepia-coloured glasses at the fun and exciting life of your feet. Photographer Joe McNally may have just taken the Instagram foot shot to end all foot shots.
Gizmodo friend Gerard Donovan has made an amazing 2.6GB, 360-degree panorama from the very top of the highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. You know, where Tom Cruise perched to be closer to Xenu and look out over all of us lousy, pill-popping humans.
Here's a factoid that will blow your mind: the Burj Khalifa -- the tallest building in the world -- is so large that you would be able to watch the sunset from the base of the building, take a lift right to the top and watch the sunset all over again.
As if being the tallest building in the world isn't already impressive enough, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai put on one of the most amazing fireworks displays I've ever seen to ring in the new year.
When I saw the Burj Khalifa in real life I was truly stunned. Indeed, the tallest skyscraper in the world defies belief. Today I learned something that also defies belief: all the poop produced there has to be removed by trucks.
