United States Navy scientists claim they have successfully developed a method of converting seawater into jet fuel . Researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory developed a technology that extracts carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater and then converts these gases into a hydrocarbon liquid fuel. Sorcery you say? Well, the scientists haven’t just produced the fuel, they’ve also used it to power a miniature radio-controlled flying jet.

To celebrate the launch of the  KOBE 9 Elite Low HTM at this year’s Milan Design Week, Nike teamed up with Arthur Huang, founder of upcycling company MINIWIZ , to create a stunning aerostatic dome supported by nothing more than a helium-filled canopy. Located at Palazzo Clerici in Milan, it’s the first architectural structure which uses zero compressive elements . What’s more, the entire pavilion can be deflated and relocated to another location inside five pieces of check-in luggage.
