Only birds and aerial vehicles can soar around the European Alps, but a thrilling point-of-view video lets you vicariously take flight over the amazing vista from the alleged perspective of an eagle.
The point-of-view footage, uploaded by YouTube user Srachi, supposedly shows an action camera (e.g. a GoPro) attached to the back of an eagle that's flying around at extreme heights. According to the video description, the near 1.5-minute clip took place near the Chamonix village located at the Mer de Glace glacier of Mont Blanc in the French portion of the Alps.… Read more
EagleEyes(Lite+) lets you monitor your business remotely, but it's really limited in its reach. EagleEyes won't let you view cameras from any old manufacturer, but it's a decent app to have if you use a specific type of surveillance software.
EagleEyes only works with AVTech surveillance equipment, so look for another app if you don't use that. If you do use AVTech, this app gives you enough features and seamless operation in the free version. If you want full control, you'll need to pay $5 for the pro version. Either way, setup is easy. … Read more
The camera built into the iPhone is a powerful tool, but the software it comes with is fairly limited. Point and shoot -- simple enough. So there are plenty of apps on the App Store that provide additional tools and features that make it possible to get more out of your device. For those that need to tag their images with GPS coordinates, there is Eagle View Photo Capture, a new app that makes it very easy to do so.
The app is easy enough. There are four buttons on the bottom bar when you open the app: Camera, Save … Read more
Super Stickman Golf 2 (99 cents) is a 2D golf game that is definitely a worthy sequel to the original with new levels, new special course elements, and much more. It's really easy to pick up and play, with tons of fantastical themed courses, interesting power-ups, and excellent physics-based gameplay. Though the game has a huge amount of arcadelike features, the goal is always the same: try to get the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible. The challenge is that it can be much harder than it looks.
Rather than your standard 3D layout seen … Read more
When NASA's Mars rover Curiosity began its entry, descent and landing sequence two weeks ago, the success of the mission hinged on what was known as the "7 minutes of terror" -- a period during which NASA was out of touch with the vehicle, relying on its autonomous landing sequence to successfully touch down on the surface.
That mission has been an outstanding success thus far, and today NASA announced another successful landing. The Mighty Eagle lander -- equipped with next-generation automated rendezvous and capture technology that contains a camera -- allows the vehicle to locate its … Read more
Everyone likes a good paper airplane. But how much do you love a 45-foot paper airplane?
The answer is clear: A lot.
And your love doesn't have to be unrequited, because the good folks at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz., have not only built but also flown a 45-footer, achieving the feat earlier this week. (See video below.)

INDIANAPOLIS--At first glance, the Vance & Hines facility outside Indianapolis wouldn't seem to offer much of interest to anyone. And that would be precisely the case, unless you're interested in motorcycles, speed, drag racing, burning rubber, loud engines, championship trophies, world records, and elite precision engineering.
Two expansive, blandly adorned warehouses hide off a side road beside several acres of corn stalks. But the engineers and mechanics working inside Vance & Hines produce some of the fastest two-wheeled vehicles in the world.
Competing in National Hot Rod Association motorcycle competitions, the 2.6-liter, 385-horsepower Vance and Hines/Screamin' Eagle team motorcycles were the first racers to break the seven-second mark on the quarter mile, with a 6.99.
According to Vance & Hines racer Eddie Krawiec, the next Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson racing goal is to break the 200 mph mark: "I'd love to be the guy who does it, but every racer on the circuit wants the same thing." … Read more
