1Million James Bond s Submarine Car For Sale On
Gear | Film
This is one of six (and one of only three remaining) modified Lotus Esprit submarine cars used in the filming of the 1977 James Bond Film 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. It's being sold on eBay for $1,000,000. Unfortunately, it's not Wet Nellie, the one they used that was an ACTUAL functioning submarine car (which was bought by Elon Musk in 2013 who plans to refurbish it using Tesla's electric drive-train). This one isn't even drivable, and was only used for the retractable wheels scene. So basically you're paying $1,000,000 for a giant white brick!

Paralysed man walks again after cell transplant
Gear | News
Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.
The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London
.
Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.
How the injury was treated
1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture
2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord
3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord

Hendo Hoverboard, a Real hoverboard

It's called the Hendo and it's being developed by Greg and Jill Henderson for their company Arx Pax.
"It's not exactly Marty McFly's hoverboard. Now it only works on special surfaces, and the battery life is only a few minutes long. And it's tough to ride," the New York Times explains in a new video shot at Arx Pax in Los Gatos, California.
According to the New York Times:
The business plan is to develop magnetic technologies and license patents to builders, engineering firms, the Green Goblin and anyone else who might need to hover something.
Mr. Henderson may be a dreamer, but he is enough of a realist to understand that people are likely to be more interested in hovering skateboards than they are in his ideas for new kinds of building foundations.
"So no, I did not feel like Marty McFly. But you can definitely tell you're floating. That's for sure. You can kind of feel that something is lifting you," Conor Dougherty from the New York Times explains.
"We can't go over water or sidewalks yet. This is the Model T," Greg Henderson told the New York Times in defense of his creation.
The Hendo isn't even the Model A. It is currently up for funding on Kickstarter.
