World's Largest Helicopter

The Soviet Union developed the Mil V-12 during the 1960s. This gigantic aircraft had a maximum takeoff weight of 231,485-pounds and featured dual rotors, mounted at the end of each wing. It was deemed a failure due to its large size and poor maneuverability -- two prototypes were built.

Beijing Airport

The world’s largest and most advanced airport building - not only technologically, but also in terms of passenger experience, operational efficiency and sustainability – Beijing Airport will be welcoming and uplifting. A symbol of place, its soaring aerodynamic roof and dragon-like form will celebrate the thrill of flight and evoke traditional Chinese colours and symbols.

Alienware curved monitor

We can't have one of these Alienware curved monitors until the second half of this year, but until then, we've been abducted by its four nearly seamless and sharp screens of DLP goodness. Lit by LEDs, this 2880x900 monster is well over three feet wide and is said to have an other-worldly .02ms response time, great for gaming.

The Soylent Green: You can see the seams between this monitor's four segments, but the Alienware humanoids tell us that flaw will be gone by the time this craft lands on Earth. The blacks look a bit washed out to our eyes, too. Price is yet to be determined.
