Coca-Cola bottles to be specific. One of the biggest brands came up with a clever way to serve ice-cold Coke to its customers. This amazing idea is available only in Colombia though. Silicon molds are used to form the filtered water into Coke bottles. When the bottle melts, the soda drinker is left with an elastic grip that can be worn as a bracelet.

9. Saunas

Okay, we all know that saunas mean being in a really stifling hot, steamy room, and other sweaty people. The ice saunas in Finland are constructed using large blocks of ice. They are available during the winter months and can provide a good sweat, too. The heat isn’t as intense as the ones we’re used to though.

8. Musical Instruments

Sculptor and musician Tim Linhart has organized a band that uses ice instruments. Now, before you judge the products to be inferior to their “real” counterparts, you’d be surprised to hear that they actually provide a nice melody.

7. Bars

It’s literally chilling out with your friends. Ice bars are slowly gaining traction in several countries. From the bar to the furnishings and the ice cold drinks of course, you’ll have fun clubbing with your squad.

6. Aircraft carriers

World War II was the melting pot of several wartime innovations that can be stuff for urban legends. One of the most bizarre inventions ever made back then was an aircraft carrier made of ice and sawdust. Named after British inventor Geoffrey Pyke, the Pykrete could have been one of the greatest war babies if ice just didn’t melt.

5. Hotels

The original ice hotel was found in Sweden. Made of snow and ice, artists arrive every winter to sculpt the hotel that has to keep a consistent -6 degrees Celsius. Cold weather gear is necessary if you don’t want to die of hypothermia.

4. Music records

Vinyl is making a comeback again these days, with bands producing them once again. Swedish band Shout Out Loud managed to convince their label and several journalists and fans to give their ice record a try. They sent out kits to a select group, which contains a silicon mold, a bottle of distilled water and after at least six hours in the freezer, the record was ready to play. The theme of the record was fading love, just like the record that melted after a few hours.

3. Castles

Pulled straight out of a fairy tale, ice castles are designed every winter to the delight of the young and young at heart. Sadly, these pretty architectural wonders don’t last long just like the others.

Assassins would surely have a heyday when ice bullets become a regular thing. Often part of action flicks, there are a lot of people who believe it can be done. TV show Mythbusters were able to determine that the slugs would be brittle and crumble even before they reach their targets.

1. Fukushima Ice Wall

Considered the most ambitious of all ice creations, the Fukushima Ice Wall is more than just an accessory or a pretty thing to look at. It was put up in order to ensure that the leaking radiation from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi power plant did not leak and contaminate the groundwater and the ocean. The ice wall was just activated last month and is still unclear if it will actually serve its purpose.

Watch How These Passengers In China Seem Not To Mind Riding A Flooded Bus

Here’s a badass bus filled with equally-badass passengers.

Taking public transportation is usually the most economical way of traveling around but yes - let’s face it - it does have its share of inconveniences.

For example, it is sometimes unavoidable to share a bus with some annoying passengers such as those who speak too loudly on the phone. Or those plane passengers who place their feet on the back of your seat.

This group of bus passengers in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province in China, had to go through an unusual hassle that perhaps many of us have never experienced while riding a public vechile. ...
