What does it take to make a face? Try $4,500. At Landon Meier’s studio, you can try on a new face for a day. Meier specializes in creating hyper-realistic (and hyper-expensive) masks that could easily pass for the real thing. Take a test run at being Walter White, or try on Mike Tyson for size—Meier’s surreal and nightmarish creations cover a whole range of celebrities and politicians, including the ever-popular viral sensation “Crying Baby.” Making these masks is no easy task—each one could take up to a year to complete. But for Meier, watching the astonished reactions to his craft makes it all worth it.
Feeling your baby kick for the first time is a special moment for most expectant mums.
But how would you feel if those kicks were more than just a little flutter and you could actually see the baby’s foot protruding from your stomach?

After a few small kicks, baby appears to boot mum hard, causing a huge bulge to appear in her stomach.
The Danish Air Force navigated a new Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk helicopter's landing on a warship under extreme weather conditions in the North Atlantic.

Take a rare peak inside of a U.S. Air Force E-4B aircraft on the flight line at Travis Air Force Base, California. The Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post, with the project name "Nightwatch", is a strategic command and control military aircraft modified from Boeing 747-200 and operated by the United States Air Force. The E-4B serves as the "National Airborne Operations Center" or "NAOC" and is a key component of the National Military Command System for the President, the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In case of national emergency or destruction of ground command and control centers, the aircraft provides a highly survivable command, control, and communications center to direct U.S. forces, execute emergency war orders, and coordinate actions by civil authorities.

Smart, the makers of the almost sarcastically small city car, has revealed its new vision for urban transport – and it’s a bit more extreme than just a car that’ll fit into half a parking bay.
But the good news if that you won't have to make small talk with the driver every again. Because it doesn't have one. So there.
The new Smart Vision EQ, revealed at the Frankfurt motor show, is a self-driving electric two seater bubble car that looks like it’s come straight out of a glossy, big-budget screen adaptation of a Philip K Dick sci-fi story.
Smart boss Annette Winkler described the cute little car as ‘fully autonomous, with maximum communication capabilities’.
Sounds adorable, like Herbie.
The Airbus A400M Atlas is a multi-purpose military transport aircraft designed by Airbus Military, which entered in service in 2013. In 2016, it has a total of 174 orders, including 24 aircraft delivered.

Pro-Russian separatists have displayed their military capabilities with a tank firing contest in eastern Ukraine that has been described as "good combat training".
Reuters reported that the tank biathlon competition involved six military crews from the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics driving over obstacles and firing at targets using live ammunition.

Soon, your Domino's pizza may be delivered via self-driving car, but it won't be coming right to your door.
On Tuesday, Domino's and Ford Motor Company announced that they are testing out self-driving cars as pizza delivery vehicles.
In the coming weeks, Domino's will offer randomly selected customers in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the option to receive their pizza delivery from a Ford Fusion Hybrid autonomous research vehicle.
A Ford engineer will still be manually driving the car, which will also be staffed with researchers eager to crack the code of how to deliver pizza without a driver — as well as observe how customers will react to the futuristic delivery service.
"As delivery experts, we've been watching the development of self-driving vehicles with great interest as we believe transportation is undergoing fundamental, dramatic change," Patrick Doyle, Domino's president and CEO, said in a statement.
Right now, the companies' biggest challenge isn't getting a car to drive itself — it's getting the pizza from the curb to the door.
In the Ann Arbor test, customers have to walk out to the parked car and retrieve their pizza from the vehicle's "Heatwave Compartment" themselves.
84-year-old Shi Yide is practicing for the 20th Asia Masters Athletics Championships at Liuzhou City Stadium. More than 1,900 master athletes from 20 countries and regions will gather in Rugao, east China’s Jiangsu Province to display their skills. Shi suffered from tuberculosis in the 1990s after retirement, and started running to strengthen his pulmonary functions. In 2006, Shi began attending national competitions and won many awards. Shi Yide said, "Humanity lies in movement. Life lies in the movement. So we should go outside and it’s better than staying at home.” This year’s competition might be Shi’s last, due to age restrictions. He hopes to perform well and end his sporting career on a high note.
Army Soldiers with 10th Support Group Regional fired AT-4 rockets to familiarize themselves with the weapons system.
The AT4 (AT-4) is an 84-mm unguided, portable, single-shot recoilless smoothbore weapon built in Sweden by Saab Bofors Dynamics. Saab has had considerable sales success with the AT4, making it one of the most common light anti-tank weapons in the world.
The AT4 is intended to give infantry units a means to destroy or disable armored vehicles and fortifications, although it is generally ineffective against modern days' main battle tanks (MBT). The launcher and projectile are manufactured pre-packed and issued as a single unit of ammunition, with the launcher discarded after a single use.

A Twitter video from a Bahamas resident shows a dry ocean floor after Hurricane Irma pushed out the beach's water.
Hurricane Irma approached the Florida Keys around 8:30am on Sunday, leaving at least one dead. The category 4 storm is expected to be one of the worst in Florida's history, with evacuation orders for all of south Florida.
We compare the sizes and power of hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons & cyclones, from a tropical storm to a category 5 hurricane such as Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Andrew & Hurricane Katrina, and even go beyond what you'd expect!
Please take note: The size indicated here is the maximum diameter based on Meteorologist calculations (Sourced from National Hurricane Center, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration & NASA, or own mapping estimates based on images if no official figures are given. It is not entirely accurate, but it gives a good scale of the sizes of certain tropical storms.
UNSW Sydney scientists have discovered the purpose of a famous 3700-year old Babylonian clay tablet, revealing it is the world’s oldest and most accurate trigonometric table, most likely used by ancient mathematical scribes to calculate how to construct palaces, temples and stepped pyramids.
