College Student Engineers Real-Life Punch and Knife-Proof Batsuit

This has got to be the coolest homemade batsuit ever!

This definitely isn’t your regular cosplay costume. Industrial design student Jackson Gordon has created his own Batman costume, patterned after the awesome Batsuits from the Christopher Nolan films. Big deal, you might say. Lots of creative people with cash to spare can create their own Batman costumes. Well, maybe. But not like this one.

This dude from Philadelphia University developed his own combat suit which is made mostly of Kevlar and can protect the wearer from knife slashes. It comes with a chest plate that can also absorb punches. Take a look at these videos of him doing some stress tests to his Batsuit.

This Man’s Home Has An Underground Secret You’ll Be Totally Jealous Of

By far the coolest and grandest basement I have ever seen!

By

This very unique, modern and exquisite type of underground sanctuary will make you forget the usual, boring, plain and sometimes creepy basements we are used to seeing. We are not talking about some famous commercial attractions though but a residential home owned by Steve Fisher in Singapore.

Fisher's 5,800 square foot bungalow has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also boasts a saltwater pool, an open-air floor plan, relaxing greenery and everything you might want for a fun getaway except that you can stay indoors instead.

The best asset of the house is an  underwater entertainment room with a perfect and wide-angle view of the pool as if like a giant aquarium. All of its walls are wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows which according to Fisher, constitute some of the largest private installations in the world. Cool!

If your concern is that the walls might give in or break, no need to worry. These panoramic windows are constructed of acrylic plastic, not glass, and are 4 and 1/2 inches thick which can even hold back a staggering half a million pounds of water! As for the price of this subterranean room, it costs more than 1 million dollars, excluding the price for the other rooms or the entire house. Wow!
