Welcome to the Digital Age, boys and girls. If you’re a fan of Eguchi Aimi, and we know you’re out there *cough*Fork*cough*, you might be surprised to learn the Japanese pop star isn’t real. She’s actually nothing more than a digital mashup of parts of seven members of AKB48 blended together to create a pop sensation in Japan. Take a look…

Remember Pixar’s Up? The National Geographic Channel does. A team of scientists and engineers decided to recreate the floating balloon house used in the film. Three weeks ago the group launched the house using 300 eight-foot balloons and were successfully able to float the house for about an hour reaching a height of 10,000 feet. Very, very cool.

Meet the fastest school bus ever made. What makes it so fast, you ask? It could be the painted flames on the sides. Or, perhaps more likely, it could be the custom-fitted General Electric J-79 jet engine taken from a F4 Phantom fighter jet. Yeah, I’m going with the second one. Driving down the street at 367mph and shooting out an 80ft flame behind you, yeah, that’s getting to school in style.
