Video: Hoverboarding over water is the coolest thing you’ll see all day

While the type of hoverboards we were teased with in Back to the Future II haven’t exactly come to fruition, this offshoot of flyboarding may be the closest thing yet.

Vision is another area of health that technology may help fix in the near future, as researchers are figuring out ways of making tiny contact lenses even more useful. In fact, France24 reports that researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland have developed contact lenses that can zoom in and out in response to simple blinks from the wearer. The technology could benefit anyone looking to correct eyesight in the future, with researchers focusing on low vision and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients, though the product is just at a prototype level.

Brilliant lifehack: Video shows how to shovel snow in seconds… without a shovel

This winter started out pretty tame, but now many areas of the country are getting slammed by winter storms. Sure, the crazy East Coast “snowpocalypse” never happened, but we’ve gotten plenty of snow so far this season.

Shoveling snow can be a huge pain. In fact, it can even be deadly; dozens of people across the country die each winter after suffering heart attacks while shoveling.

Now, however, there’s a new snow removal lifehack that could literally save your life. More →
