Everyday, the future feels a little bit closer, and ZBoard wants to help the world continue moving forward. Literally. The new start up company has just announced their new electric skateboard. After seeing how simple it is to use–simply lean forward to go, lean back to stop–you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of such a obvious idea. 

The e-board has a top speed of 17 mph, a range of 5-10 miles, and only weighs around 30 pounds. Of course, all that new technology is gong to cost you plenty, from $499-$799.

The Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State Dominguez Hills game was neck and neck for two entire overtime quarters. Finally, with 8.7 seconds left, Cal Poly Pomona scored a three to be up by two. Then, amazingly, Cal State scored a three with only .6 seconds left.

Everyone was relieved that the nail bitter of a game was finally over. Or so they thought. With only half a second, Cal Poly threw a Hail Mary three quarter court shot… and scored. Appropriately, everyone went nuts. The video is covered by YahooSports and DeadSpin

Grace Hopper was a famous American Navy officer and computer scientist who passed away in 1992. This vintage footage of her explaining nanoseconds in physical terms just went viral this weekend, and is featured on GeeksAreSexy and VideoSift

Hopper explains to a class room how a nanosecond is a billionth of a second, a number to small to really grasp. So she expressed a nanosecond with a string of wire, just under a foot to be exact. That’s how far electricity can travel in a nanosecond. To compare, she also shows what a microsecond looks like physically–a wire nine hundred and eighty-four feet long.

Every now and then, a new UFO themed video surfaces. This latest one is only a week old, and already has over two million views. The video apparently features amateur footage of a UFO in New Mexico while the cameraman drives down the highway. As usual, the believers shout conspiracy while the skeptics say it’s simply a camera trick or CGI.
