1. Secret Area 6 is a secret no more. Everyone is familiar with boring, old Area 51 in Nevada, but did you know there’s a mysterious government site that can be seen on Google Earth only 12 miles away? Built in 2005, the site has a small complex of buildings, a large hangar and a runway that stretches out almost 5,000 feet on the Yucca Flat. The complex has no official name.
2. Director of Dutch industrial company Vanku, Henk van Kuijk thought kneeling down to lay bricks into place wasn’t ideal. So, he invented the Tiger Stone paving machine which feeds loose bricks and lays them onto the road to put an end to the time-consuming, back-breaking work. The road-wide device needs 1 to 3 human operators and can cost between $81,485 to $108, 655 US.
