The newest drone in the market is out and it happens to be a self-piloting camera. Yes, this is not a drill nor your favorite sci-fi film. Zero Zero Robotics has recently launched the Hover Camera Passport which is now up for grabs at $599, from a limited time offer of $549.

This futuristic flying camera is a portable, lightweight and paperback-sized drone. It weighs just 242 grams, hence, it doesn’t need an FAA approval ‘requiring owners to register their vehicles weighing 250 grams and more.’

Dubbed as “The Camera of the Future,” this product is a true eye candy for ‘tech geeks and thrillseekers’. It has a sleek design that doesn’t disappoint and features that are definitely worth a second look.

Its fully enclosed propellers allow its user to safely grab it mid-air without getting hurt.

Perfect for capturing your great moments and aerial selfies in 4K videos and 13-megapixel images.

Curiously Peculiar Ice Cave Freezes During Summer and Melts During Winter

What an icehole!

One of Mother Nature's most intriguing mysteries can be found somewhere east of Coudersport in Pennsylvania. There lies an eight-by-ten feet hole that opens into a curiously peculiar abyss, about forty feet deep, that freezes during warmer months and melts during winter.

Take a look at the Coudersport Ice Mine. It is not like any other ice caves that remain frozen during winter and warm up during summer. Ice begins to form in spring and continues to increase in volume as temperatures rise. Meanwhile, ice in the mine thaws as heat dissipates and winter sets in, which is just about the time when ice caves are expected to freeze.

Quite a paradox, isn't it?

Has Science Finally Found Proof that God Exists?

Science and religion have been at odds since time immemorial, but will this recent discovery finally reconcile the two sides?

People are often discouraged from discussing religion and the existence of a god when they're surrounded by scientists. Many scientists deny the existence of a god, particularly in the religious sense. Some scientists tend to lean more towards agnosticism, wherein they're open to believing in God if evidence presents itself. Others are more adamant atheists that deny the existence of a supreme being.

The concept of God is such a polarizing issue today, since more and more people are veering further away religion and turning to science for answers. This comes as no surprise since scientific advancements are now explaining phenomena that were once attributed to a divine being.

However, what if there truly is a God? And what if the proof of God's existence is now so profound that scientists can no longer ignore it? What if, after years and years of people arguing over the existence or non-existence of god, the proof is finally here, clear as day?

This Crystal Ball Doesn’t Predict the Future But Does Something Even More Interesting!

Amazingly, its an ancient meteorological device that dates back to 1853!

This crystal ball found right outside the Darwin Airport Meteorological Office in Darwin, Australia isn’t a tool for telling the future but is just as fascinating. In fact, it is a scientific instrument of antique nature and still continues to be in use today.

As its name implies, the Campbell-Strokes Sunshine Recorder is a device that measures the sunshine’s intensity. It works pretty much like how a thermometer measures temperature.

The device is made of about 4-inch diameter solid glass sphere which concentrates the rays of the sun on a calibrated paper. The sun’s heat then burns a path on the said paper and so its intensity can be measured depending on the details indicated on the burns.
