Mile-High Skyscrapers and Floating Cities That Never Were

Wired.com has compiled a portfolio of “promised skylines we never got to see — and a few that may yet come to be — as seen from the imagined eyes of those who live there.” The picture above is Frank Lloyd Wright’s “This Illinois”, which was supposed to shoot 5,278 feet above Chicago. Other “alternate reality architectures” include

Pleasure Cup: The Future of Masturbation

tenga onacups masturbation

To begin with, Tenga Onacups don’t feature a porn model with watermelons for breasts licking a banana suggestively on their packaging. In fact, Tenga Onacups resemble stylish male grooming products so much so that you no longer have to worry about being humiliated by overzealous immigration officers at the airport if you decide to bring them along for your holiday (unlike say a two-headed electric dildo). Each of the five onacupscomes with a self-explanatory name: Deep Throat, Rolling Head, Soft Tube, Double Hole and Air Cushion.

The Air Cushion Onacup gives the user a “clinging sensation by regulating the air pressure within the chambers of the cup while the Soft Tube Onacup allows the user to control and vary the tightening sensation based on the tightness of the grip.” The Double Hole Onacup is a two-in-one cup that offers two different sensations: If you prefer it tight (like from behind), go for the “Bitter Side” and if you prefer a hole with the elasticity of a pair of loose granny panties, then go for the “Sweet Side”.

The Deep Throat Onacup which comes with a vacuum to create a “sucking sensation” and features an unintentionally hilarious “slurping sound” to recreate that deep throat experience. The Rolling Head Onacup incorporates a flexible body that allows the user to try out different rolling motions at the top to increase the range of stimuli to the penis head while executing piston-like up-and-down movements at the base of the cup.

Unfortunately, the onacups are only good for a one-time sexperience unless you make a quick withdrawal prior to ejaculation or choose to wear a condom (now where’s the fun in that?). But again this allows the user need not clean up bed sheets and such afterwards.

Tourist space travel, not that far away?

Xcor Aerospace announced plans for a two-seater commercial spacecraft called the Lynx on Wednesday. It was also announced that Lynx could probably take its first test flight by 2010. The spacecraft would allow passengers to take a 25-minute spaceflight. “Our company’s goal has always been to build rocket-powered vehicles that can be flown like regular aircraft,” said company president Jeffrey Greason, who claims that the Lynx is relatively environmentally friendly: “They are fully reusable, burn cleanly, and release fewer particulates than solid-fuel or hybrid rocket motors,” he says.
