Unbelievable! Man rides drone to deliver game ball at Portuguese Cup final match! 28/05/2017
In 2012 a Saudi Arabian logistics company smashed the record for the 'heaviest item moved by road freight', when it delivered a water desalination unit weighing in excess of 4,800 tonnes and covering more ground than a football field. And over in the UK a power station transformer weighing an earth-shattering 640 tonnes claimed the title for being Britain's heaviest load. After being removed from Didcot power station in 2013 it was loaded on to a truck and slowly hauled along at speeds of 4mph, which caused a 13-mile tailback on the motorway. Meanwhile, in America, when the retired space shuttle Endeavour rolled into its retirement home at the California Science Center in 2012, thousands of spectators turned out to see its creeping procession. The shuttle - which spanned six highway lanes - made stop-and-go progress, with some halts to check its balance on its 160-wheeled carrier. Crew were also on hand to prune trees in its path as it rolled past strip malls, storefronts, apartment buildings and front lawns.

A Frenchman whose hoverboard invention is being considered by the US Army for usage by combat soldiers was spotted flying his super-fast device over a lake in Arizona. Franky Zapata, a former professional jet ski driver, was seen flying his Flyboard Air hoverboard over Lake Havasu earlier this month. In footage of the flight, Zapata is seen hovering dozens of feet above the Lake Havasu beach as onlookers watched the amazing flight. Wearing a protective helmet and flight suit, he zooms past palm trees and over water and sand during the minute-long video. Upon finishing the flight, Zapata lands on a nearby platform and is helped down by a nearby onlooker. It's unclear how Zapata takes off on his hoverboard, as the video starts after his is in the air. There are also no specific details on how Zapata is controlling the Flyboard or what exactly is powering it. But Zapata spent several days in Lake Havasu City testing out his new board during air shows in Sara Park and on a nearby beach, according to Havasu News. Residents of the city came out to watch him soar through the air and do tricks on his futuristic board. The Flyboard Air allows users to fly untethered through the sky to an incredible height of 10,000ft (3,048m), which is almost seven times that of the Empire State Building. The 37-year-old's original Water Flyboards are popular with the likes of Justin Bieber and Kylie Jenner - but his latest invention puts Marty McFly's hoverboard to shame. The device uses an 'Independent Propulsion Unit' to fly for about ten minutes and has a top speed of 93mph (150 km/h), Zapata Racing claims. Zapata is working with the US Army on uses for the Flyboard Air, but details of their collaboration are classified. The former jet skier did say, however, that the plans are to make the boards available to combat soldiers.
Rocket Lab joined the ranks of only a few private companies capable of sending rockets into space, debuting their innovative Electron rocket on Thursday in a long-awaited shakedown mission. However, the rocket fell short of reaching orbit, Rocket Lab said after the test flight. The 17-meter tall, all-composite rocket blasted off at 4:20 UTC from Launch Complex 1 on Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand - powering away from its picturesque sea-side launch pad with nine electric pump-fed rocket engines. Electron's first stage was in action for two and a half minutes before the single-engine second stage took over for nearly five minutes of firing time, dropping the payload fairing as is accelerated toward orbit but eventually coming up short of orbital velocity.
Incredible footage shows engineers rotating a section of enormous overpass as part of a project to merge ten towns into one mega city in central China's Hubei province. Workers and engineers made the section rotate 90 degrees yesterday in just 72 minutes. The elevated bridge is multi-functional, allowing cars, pedestrians and trams to pass through. Video, uploaded by CGTN, China's national broadcaster, showed the experts carrying out the rotation on May 23. The section weighs around 11,000 tonnes and has a length of 100 metres (328 feet) with a width of 24.1 metres (79 feet). It was located on Zuo Miao Road at Donghu New Technology Development Zone in Wuhan City. Wang Wuli, project manager, told Hubei Daily that the rotation speed was operated by computers. Wang explained that the rotation didn't cause any disturbance to traffic or rail travel. Experts took 72 minutes to connect the two sections with a mere one foot gap inbetween which will be filled by concrete mix later on. According to Hubei Daily, the section on Zuo Miao Road plays an important role in the plan of urbanising the mega city.
Swapping the sea for the snow, one extreme windsurfer decided to sail at high speeds down a 5,656 foot mountain. Levi Siver, 36, who fell in love with the ocean as a child in Maui, took to the peaks of Mount Rishiri in Hokkaido, Japan, to pull off the daredevil stunt. Video footage shows the medal-winning sportsman in action, as he skilfully surfs down slopes of fresh powder. There are moments when he flies into the air as he tackles mounds of compact snow. According to Red Bull - who Siver represents as a professional athlete - the stunt marked a world first. The American came up with the idea five years ago and spent months prepping for the adrenaline-pumping descent. Siver used a specially adapted rig with a modified finned base. There were no bindings on the board and Siver wore surf boots instead of sturdier snow gear. Although footage of him looks flawless, it wasn't all plain sailing. It took 20 days of filming to get the footage required during the month of March. Before whizzing down the slopes, he had to complete a two-hour hike battling lows of -13 degrees Celsius. The weather was also very temperamental and Siver often had to wait several hours in a bid to catch the perfect winds. His camera crew would then catch him in action. Describing how it felt to windsurf on the snow, Siver said: 'On the drop in you get the same feeling as when you’re windsurfing. But you’re looking down on a mountain, not the ocean. I got this exhilarating feeling that I can’t even really describe. 'The strongest wind I caught was about 9.3mph.' Siver was born in Idaho, near the snowy slopes of Sun Valley, and as a child he took to skiing and snowboarding. But after moving to the shores of Maui, Hawaii, at the age of 11, Siver’s future calling as a professional windsurfer was sealed. He said his most recent endeavour came about after deciding to marry his two favourite sports, snowboarding and windsurfing. He concluded: 'The idea for this project stemmed from the vision that we could transfer the elements of windsurfing onto a mountain and create the same exhilarating experience the surfer gets on the water. 'I’m always trying to find ways to challenge myself, but this project really sparked my curiosity. 'I wanted to be the first person to try alpine windsurfing on a finned board.'
A scuba diving instructor has captured incredible footage of a monster 14-foot stingray swimming underneath unsuspecting surfers at Bondi Beach. Joe Phillips was watching the sunset at the iconic Sydney beach when his drone captured the amazing footage of the enormous stingray at 5pm on Sunday. The 25-year-old couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the gargantuan ray, which he thought was a rock, swimming underneath surfers just 25 metres from the shore. The monster ray is believed to have been a stingray – the same animal which killed Australian celebrity crocodile hunter Steve Irwin at the age of 44 in Queensland in 2006. Stingrays are often found in shallow coastal waters in mild seas. The stingray has a sharp barb that can produce fatal venom.
In the ever-competitive Instagram holiday-snap battle, a new weapon has emerged. Enter the Biki, a new drone in the form of a bionic fish, which allows users to steer it around underwater and take photos and video footage. The Biki, developed in China and available to pre-order for £420 ($549), can keep its balance in rough water conditions and automatically swerve to avoid obstacles. Within a day of launching on Kickstarter, it exceeded its £20,000 goal, and the makers are currently offering backers a discounted price for the device. Once on sale to the wider public in August, it will be priced at an eye-watering £788 ($1,024). If it loses its way due to a dropped connection, a built-in GPS module makes the Biki automatically return to base. The Biki can swim at 1mph, is equipped with lights to explore dark and hidden areas, and has a 150-degree wide-angle lens. It can operate for up to two hours before the battery drains, at depths of nearly 200 feet.

From teleportation tubes to flying cars, getting from A to B looks like it will be more fun in the future, if science fiction films are to be believed. And some of these futuristic visions are expected to become reality within our lifetimes. To shed light on how we might get around in the year 2050, electronics firm RS Components has created an interactive module that showcases some of the most exciting predictions. Users can input their current age to see in how many years they might be able to travel in a next-generation airliner with panoramic windows, or even take a high speed monorail to work – if all the jobs have not been taken by robots. By 2020, car journeys could be a lot quicker and less frustrating thanks to the use of augmented reality technology in cars, according to the interactive graphic. It’s hoped vehicles will be able to pass information to the driver about traffic conditions, real-time accident alerts and tourist attractions in a less distracting way than present. Information could be beamed onto a windscreen, for example, instead of displayed on a small sat-nav screen. There are also high hopes that modern trains could be replaced by a supersonic Hyperloop in some places. These would comprise pods travelling through tubes at over 700 miles per hour (1,100 kph), making journeys incredibly fast for passengers and freight. In 2025 commuters may be able to catch a hovering Skytran pod to work.

Stunning photos of a pair of humpback whales have emerged from a recent Sydney Harbour tour depicting the magnificent mammals in their full glory. Delighted tourists were treated to a remarkable display from the whales - which has been hailed the best in 10 years - as their boat toured around the harbour entrance in search of the gentle giants. The huge animals didn't disappoint as they leaped into the air between North Head and South Head as eager onlookers were at the ready with their cameras on Sunday. Around 50 sightseers were lucky enough to witness the rare phenomenon of a double breach - where two whales simultaneously leap out of the water. Some were lucky enough to capture the perfect shot, with the picturesque backdrop of Sydney's city and harbour in the background. Tour organisers Whale Watching Sydney expressed their delight on Facebook after suggesting the sightings so early in the season were a moment to savor. 'I'm a little speechless here, second day of the season and we are already seeing double breaches. Quite the afternoon we had,' the tour company commented online. Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney, who took the remarkable photos, told Daily Mail Australia the sightings were extremely rare. 'In 10 years of doing this work in Sydney Harbour that's the best double breaching photo I've seen.' 'In a season, you will normally see it happen probably twice, so for it to happen so early in the season, it's special,' he added.

Beijing has unveiled a homegrown combat chopper that's said to be capable of destroying the most powerful tank in the world. Two-seat Z-19E, also known as 'Black Hurricane', is built to cater to the international market as Beijing aims to expand its presence in the global market for military aircraft. Chinese state media claimed that the single-rotor, narrow-body aircraft is one of the most advanced helicopters of its kind worldwide. The light attack helicopter debuted to the public in September, 2015, and made its maiden flight today in Harbin, north-east China, according to People's Daily Online. The aircraft is expected to perform air-to-ground strikes, air-to-ground fire support and air-to-air combat in complicated weather conditions. The newspaper claimed it has 'excellent combat abilities. Its nickname in China is Yuan, which stands for 'Yours Useful Available Necessities', as the Chinese authority expects it to help the country gain market share against Western competitors. The helicopter is said to feature a multiple rocket launcher, which could fire more than a dozen rockets at the same time. It could also carry four air-to-ground missiles, which have been described as the helicopter's secret weapon, according to Xinhua News Agency. The state Chinese news agency claims that the missiles could destroy the most powerful tank in the world. In addition, bullet-proof armour have been fit on the pilots seats, which could block bullets from a 12.7mm machine gun, reports said. The Chinese media are yet to release key statistics or the price of Z-19E. But it's been reported that its maximum take-off weight is 4.25 tonnes. Z-19E is said to be an improved version of Z-19, which is 12 metres long (39 feet), 4.01 metres tall (13 feet), with a range of 800 kilometres (497 miles). The helicopter's features are also said to be similar to those of a Z-19 Z-19E is designed and built by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, a state-owned firm specialised in manufacturing military and industrial aircraft. Chinese industry experts expect 100 to 150 Z-19Es to be sold in the next 10 years to worldwide clients. The global market for military helicopter is likely to witness a steady growth over the next decade because of an increase in defense spending globally, according to a report released in December, 2016. North America and the Asia-Pacific are likely to be the key pivots for military choppers between 2016 and 2025, followed by Europe and the Middle East, said the report. Besides Z-19, Aviation Industry Corporation of China is the manufacturer of C919, China's first domestically built passenger plane. The narrow-body, twin-engine plane is Beijing's first step toward independence from Boeing and Airbus as it attempts to replace all 6,000-6,800 of its western aircraft at a cost of around $1 trillion. Single-aisle C919 made its maiden flight on May 5 in Shanghai.
China has successfully mined flammable ice at sea after nearly two decades of research work.
The flammable ice was discovered in the South China Sea in 2007.
According to Chinese state run Xinhua, one cubic metre of combustible ice is equal to 164 cubic metres of natural regular gas.
Minister of Land and Resources Jiang Daming announced the success on May 18. The mining site was located in the Shenhu area of the South China Sea, 320 kilometres of the coast of Zhuhai City.
The trial mining started on March 28 at a depth of 4,153 feet. During the trial, around 16,000 cubic metres of gas was extracted each day.
The methane content was up to 99.5 percent of natural gas.
Footage shows the bore head being lowered down into the sea to extract the gas from the ice.
The Minister claimed that it was a major breakthrough that may lead to a global energy revolution.
The amount of predicted resources is equivalent to more than twice that of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.
A cameraman has left viewers stunned after mysteriously appearing to step through a magical portal on a walk into the words into another dimension. In the short clip posted to Facebook, a young man is walking through a forest in Portland, Oregon while filming on a camera. He comes to a clearing where there is a white mirror, resting up against a tree. As the birds tweet in the background, the cameraman walks up to the reflective glass before appearing to go though it and into the other side. The video was posted to Instagram, and has already amassed 24,000 views on Facebook and been shared hundreds of times. It has left dozens puzzled and scratching their heads over how the man might have created the illusion. One viewer said: 'What if you walked through it to another dimension, look back and the mirror is gone?' The footage was filmed in the Hoyt Arboretum, a woods and park in Portland in the United States. It was recorded by magician Kevin Parry.

Frank Sinatra famously referred to New York as the city that never sleeps, and a stunning new video shows exactly what he was singing about. Incredible timelapse footage captures 10 days in the life of the city, combining aerial shots over the streets to ground-level footage of commuters making their way to and from work. Made by filmmakers FilmSpektakel, the three-minute video includes iconic locations such as Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Central Terminal and Liberty Island. It is the first timelapse video the Austrian company has made on foreign soil. An explanation from FilmSpektakel said: 'It took us 10 days, a lot of burgers and one helicopter ride to produce this video. 'Ten days is very little time to discover this city of endless opportunities, so we hardly slept anything and shot day and night for this time lapse film. 'The city that never sleeps indeed!' During the making of the video, producers shot a huge 65,000 photos, and the taxi scene alone took five days in postproduction. The video has been viewed nearly 50,000 times on YouTube, and is the third timelapse film make by the organization.
This is the moment 250 tonnes of sand flew into the air as a 500lb German WWII bomb was detonated by a specialist squad. Residents were evacuated after the unexploded German bomb was found at a construction site near the Aston Expressway in Birmingham on Monday. A bomb squad performed a controlled explosion on the shell, sending a giant plume of dark smoke into the air at about 3.45pm. People in Sutton Coldfield, some eight miles away, reported hearing the boom, reported the Birmingham Mail. Preparation for the explosion caused chaos in the city, with trains to Birmingham New Street cancelled and 13 miles of the M6 closed in both directions to keep the route clear. Experts covered the bomb with 250 tonnes of sand before blowing it up. Evacuated residents cheered as they heard the bomb blast from the Alexander Stadium around two miles away. Around a dozen Aston neighbours were outside the emergency shelter. Adrian Adams said: 'Everybody's happy because it looks as if we're finally going home. 'It was a big relief hearing the bang. At this moment in time the most important things in the world are a decent cup of tea, a hot shower and probably bed.' The explosion was so loud - it even set off burglar alarms around Aston. Yesterday the discovery in Priory Road, Aston sparked a full-scale evacuation of surrounding houses and businesses. Police said 'hundreds of homes' were cleared as a result of the bomb drama, which also saw the Aston Expressway closed, along with many surrounding roads. Sabrina Harley, 18, who lives near Aston railway station, said yesterday that she had received no official information about where she should spend the night after being evacuated. She said: 'I've heard nothing. I heard about what was going on this morning but I don't know whether we are allowed back home tonight.' Another evacuated resident said: 'When I left this afternoon I was told I would not be allowed back. 'The police officer who knocked the door told us to stay inside and to keep all our doors and windows shut. 'When I asked how long we would be evacuated for he said he didn't know. He said it could be a few hours or could be longer.'
