Evel Knievel. This name ring the bells, sounds familiar? Of course, because this is the name of the greatest motorcycle stuntmen ever (my opinion). The man have been doing spectacular things in the 1960s and 70s. I know that everything have evolved in last two decades, not to mention since '70s, and everything is bigger, faster, harder – so bike stunts have evolved too. See some of the best pictures of motorcycle jumping and stunt jumps from around the world in this amazing gallery, along with few pics of Evel Knievel.
Designed by Berlin-based Studio Aisslinger, this incredibly attractive modular home was created almost 4,000 ft above sea level. Located near Bozen in Northern Italy, it features magnificent views of the Dolomite mountains, yet can be easily taken apart and rebuilt in a new location. This makes the structure perfect for the travelling nomad, all while leaving a minimal CO2 footprint. Rajesh kannoly
Dubbed Fincube, the home is made entirely of local wood and the design is minimal, material-orientated and in close touch with nature. A 360-degree triple glazing is furnished with a second facade layer, giving the building a very elegant, yet modern shape.
The modular aspect of Fincube allows it to be embedded into a variety of landscapes including forests, meadows and mountainsides. The combination of long-lasting design and the option of changing its location make the Fincube a flexible home or hideaway, and a lifetime companion. To top it off, Fincube is a smart house, with all vital functions being controlled by a central touch panel.

These terrifying trees are unlikely to attract children keen on climbing them.
With its haunting frame and looming arms, one particular beech looks like it has just leapt out of a set for the smash-hit movie Lord Of The Rings.
The spooky specimen, suspected to be an oak, was spotted by Charlotte Laurie on a quiet country lane at Boxted, near Colchester, Essex.
Scare-tree: The enormous beech, resembles the Ents that feature in the Hollywood blockbuster Lord Of The Rings, that attack Isengard and manage to flood it
Artist Laurie, known as Busky, spotted the monstrous tree and said it appeared to be marching across fields to terrorise the roads.
Busky, 84, who lives nearby, said: ‘It looks like a really grumpy old woman.
‘It’s a wonderful thing to look at. The head is down and the arms are stretched out, it’s a wonderfully old tree.
‘But I’m not quite as old as the tree!’
If the ghost-like shape of the tree was not spooky enough, Miss Laurie said her neighbour often spots a small owl on it on her way home from work.
The Hammer Horrors tree, which sits on Sky Hall Hill, is not the only terrifying tower of timber in the area.
A gruesome tree in the grounds of Stowlangtoft Hall, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, became an overnight sensation last summer. The tree’s gargoyle-like features were snapped by David Garnham and the 70ft beech quickly made national headlines.
He believes the bizarre tree - which also appears to have a twisted tongue forking from its mouth - shares an uncanny resemblance with Edward Munch's classic Scream painting.
Mr Garnham, a maintenance technician, said: 'I was going to get it blown up to A3 and donate it to the residential home but you can just imagine one of the old ladies waking up and thinking 'the Grim Reaper's come for me'.
'It really does show nature's true beauty and also says a lot about what the imagination can conjure up.
'It's a bit like the enchanted forest - where it moves towards you but stops when you look at it. I can't imagine too many children wanting to go climbing up that tree.
'I've called the photo 'Nature's Scream' because I think it does have an uncanny resemblance to Edvard Munch's classic work.
'I've known about it for a while but when I was taking my mother to work the other day, I pulled over and took a photograph of it.
'In the light of the day it looks peculiar but it came out on the photograph even better - its like a gargoyle and really is twisted into an incredible form.'
Meanwhile, photographer, Angel Febrero, captured a pair of trees in his native Spain that resemble spiders.
The manipulated symmetrical snaps were taken on the island of Extremadura, with the extended branches on either side much like the insect's legs as it preys on its victims.
