BMW-Inspired Headphones? Now That’ll Cost Ya

Have you ever wondered what military-grade headphones are like? Well, we’ve got something a little more stylish than your typical army cans. Audio expert, Sennheiser has teamed up with BMW Designworks USA to bring their S1 Digital general aviation headset.

As it sounds, these headphones were made for pilots to protect their ears during takeoff, and the tech ‘examines’ the cockpit’s recent noise levels to ‘better understand’ how much to eliminate during all phases of flight.

The cans themselves are absolutely gorgeous, and they look so comfortable, you’d wonder if a celebrity would slam down the dough for a pair of these. I’d have to admit though, it’d be funny to see a music producer rocking these.

Geocopter Presents First Unmanned Helicopter

The GC-201 from Geocopter allows the US military to use unmanned helicopters for stealth missions. Designed and built like a normal helicopter, the GC-201 features a twin gas turbine engine propulsion system, lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and full automatic takeoff, mission, and landing capabilities.

It can cruise at 46MPH and can fly as high as 6,500 feet. The GC-201 carries a 66 pound sensor payload that brings its original weight to nearly 200 pounds. With the sensor payload attached, the helicopter can remain in flight only for about three hours, perfect for short missions.
