The most expensive Pen in the world is produced by a very elitist and highly regarded pen maker named Aurora. This little and highly specialized Italian company makes once every year a fountain pen named the Aurora Diamante. The pen is worth roughly US $1.3 million. There are numerous reasons why this pen is so precious. The most obvious are the 30 carats of De beers diamonds that cover most of its visible surface. Approximately two thousand class 4 C diamonds are used in this process; it is a fragile and meticulous task that requires an inspiring level of talent. The two hectogram barrel of the most expensive pen in the world is made out of solid platinum and the nib out of 18 carat gold. The nib can be customized on request to display the coat of arms of the client, the signature of the owner or even a portrait. This is comprehensible as the most expensive pen in the world is a highly delicate item and any owner would desire to leave his or her mark on it.

Everyone is well-known with Patrick Dougherty's enormous nests made of willow saplings; however his latest "Ballroom" installation at Federation Square in Melbourne might well be his most determined yet. Willows saplings are considered weeds in Australia, where their thick canopy, invasive root system and extreme leaf fall is disparaging to local water systems but the plants offer a great medium for the American artist's larger-than-life public art installations. For the Ballroom installation commissioned by the Federation Square Creative Program to encourage public art at the 3.2 hectare mixed-use space near Melbourne’s busiest railway station, Dougherty turned to the nearby St. Paul’s Cathedral for inspiration. Apart from metal scaffolding that keeps the willow structure erect, the artist uses few tools to prunes and bends the malleable branches to his visionary will. It took almost three weeks and 10 tons of willows to realize Ballroom, which features magical arched ceilings and celestial windows that permit just a smidgen of daylight to penetrate the interior. This distinct piece on show until early 2013 assists the Australian government manages the arboreal pest in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and awe-inspiring.
Bulgarian environmental artist Christo has draped a mysterious array of landscapes and objects in a distinguishing orange hue since the 1960s but few of his installations have been as conceptually perplexing as his latest planned installation. The Mastaba is to be an enduring flat-topped pyramid of oil barrels located in the desert about 100 miles from Abu Dhabi. While oil-rich nations vie for the dubious accolade of having the “world’s tallest building,” Christo’s carving comprised of 410,000 oil barrels is set to make Abu Dhabi home to the world’s largest lasting sculpture.

A skydiver pulled off an amazing stunt when he climbed out from the cockpit of a glider and crawled along the wing - then somersaulted under the fuselage of the second glider while the first rider turned upside down and flew overhead so that the sky diver could reach up and form a human link between the two planes. The spectacular stunt was carried out by Salzburg skydiver Paul Steiner 2,100 metres in the air with both gliders travelling at 100 miles an hour above the mountains in Styria, Austria.

The world’s first commercial vertical farm! Built by Sky Greens Farms, the rising steel structure will help the city grow more food locally, plummeting dependence on imported produce. The vertical farm is able to produce one ton of fresh vegetables every other day, which are sold in local supermarkets and will provide a fresh new source of sustainable produce for local residents. Singapore presently only 7 percent of its vegetables locally, driving a need to buy from other countries. But highly thanks to the new vertical farm, now local citizens can eat locally produced vegetables available exclusively at the FairPrice Finest supermarket.
The world’s first vertical farm itself is made up of 120 aluminum towers that stretch thirty feet tall. It’s a stunning and giant greenhouses, the rows of plants produce about a half ton of vegetables per day. Only three kinds of veggies are grown there, but locals expect to get bigger the farm to include other varieties. The vertical farm is at present seeking investors to help build 300 additional towers, which would generate two tons of vegetables per day. Even though the $21 million dollar price tag is heavy, it could mean agricultural independence for the area.
The vertical farm vegetables have become a big hit with the locals too. However the produce costs 10 to 20% more than other vegetables at the supermarket, consumers seemed keen to buy the freshest food possible often buying out the market’s stock of vertical farm foods. This pioneering vertical farm could help change the way the world eats, giving dense cities an opportunity to grow food in their own back yard.

This is one of the smallest primates, and the smallest true monkey you will ever see, with its body length ranging from only 14 to 16 centimetres (Just 5.5 to 6.3 inch). The pygmy marmoset, also called as “dwarf monkey” (Cebuella pygmaea) is native to South America. Nicknames for this monkey often refer to its size, for example: mono de bolsillo (“pocket monkey”), leoncito (“little lion”), or “Finger Monkey” in the US. Are you thinking is it amazing monkey and haven’t seen yet?

A spillway is known in the UK as overflow channels, are structures that offer controlled release of flows from a dam or levee into an area downstream. Spillways release floods so that water does not overtop and destroy the dam; water does not regularly flow over a spillway unless there is a flood. Typically spillways are round; this particular star-shaped one is located at the Kechut Reservoir near Jermuk in Armenia. We have already done a standalone feature on the round shaped bell-mouth spillways, but I have never seen a star-shaped spillway until now.

You can call this amazing vehicle "Road Train" A road train or road-train is a trucking concept used in remote areas of Argentina, Mexico United States, Canada and Australia, to move logistics freight efficiently. The word "road train" is most often used in Australia. In United States and Canada the terms "triples," "turnpike doubles" and "Rocky Mountain doubles" are frequently used for longer combination vehicles (LCVs). A “road train” consists of a relatively conventional tractor unit, but instead of pulling one trailer or semi-trailer, a road train pulls two or more of them. On February 18, 2006, an Australian built Mack truck with 112 semi-trailers, 1,300 t (1,279 long tons; 1,433 short tons) and 1,474.3 meters (4,836 ft 11 in) long, this road train pulled the load 100 metres (328 feet) to recapture the record for the longest road train (multiple loaded trailers) ever pulled with a single prime mover. It was on the main road of Clifton, Queensland, that 70-year-old John Atkinson claimed a new record, pulled by a tri-drive Mack Titan.

We know what you may believe, it’s a photo-shop fake, and at a first glance anyone might be tempted to believe the same way, but take a 2nd, or even a 3rd look, heck take as many looks as you want, cause this is most likely the weirdest thing you have seen lately, a five headed snake has been seen in an Indian temple at Karnataka. Even tho polycephalic snakes sound like something we have only heard in mythology, it is not as rare as you would believe to observe a two headed snake. But a five headed snake is just too amazing and weird. I am sure you would take a look at the pictures and see for yourself. Those animals with more than one head have a congenital condition called polycephaly, in lay man terms, they have various heads. From what has been documented, animals with more than one head are separated into two categories: three headed animals and two headed animals. Up until now, the only books or imaginations that mentioned five headed animals are story books. But take a look at this incredible picture of a five headed cobra found in India. Coincidently or not, Hindu epic books tell the story of such unbelievable reptiles, but once again, nothing was ever proven. Now shed your eyes below and see for yourself the wondrous and astonishing five headed snake.
The Limousine has 26 wheels and can be driven rigidly or adjusted to bend in the middle around corners. This incredible car is currently in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest car in the world and even has two driver’s compartments one at each end to help with reversing. The longest car in the world is better equipped than many Hollywood mansions, including luxuries like a large Jacuzzi tub, a sun deck, a helipad, a swimming pool (with a diving board of course), a king sized bed and a satellite dish, just to name a few. While the limo isn’t actually street legal, it is mainly hired out for exhibitions and to be used in movies.
Sometimes unusual facts happened, and you would be surprised off course and your initial thinking will be some graphic works; but it’s thought to be a random genetic mutation. The Apple was bringing into being in the orchard of a man named Ken Morrish, where he's grown apples for 45 years. Ken Morris was picking apples in his garden for a family member when he surprised to see the unusual apple, which caught his attention immediately. The red side of the apple is said to taste sweeter than the green side does. The reason for this is thought to be that the red side has seen more sunshine during its growth. The apple discovery is extremely uncommon and intriguing. I believe you would be also curious to see this rare apple.
