Hovercraft golf carts. Golf needs this. Defending Masters champ, Bubba Watson, has this.
This Thursday, defending champion Bubba Watson and 92 other players will tee it up in the 77th edition of The Masters Tournament in Agusta, Georgia.
Noticeably missing from the action will be Bubba's Hover, a hovercraft golf cart that Bubba recently built with Oakley as a publicity stunt, and which we sure hope he gets to keep.

The scariest part of the journey to the bottom of the ocean was putting the suit on.
No, these aren't images from the latest Steampunk expo in Portland or sci-fi film prop museum in LA. These are photos of antique deep sea diving suits, some of which are around 100 years old.
Man's curiosity and extreme love of adventure is only held back by our technical abilities. Which in turn, helps us push our boundaries in these fields farther and farther. Even before it was physically possible to send a man to the moon, the dream was there. Just like these suits and the bottom of the ocean.
We culled together a few of our favorite listings from Airbnb.
Airbnb has exploded over the past couple of years and revolutionized the hospitality industry. They've taken a once taboo and often sketchy act, namely, renting someone else's room, apartment, or home, and institutionalized it with professional photography, background checks, and customer service.
We have buddies who have financed vacations by renting out their apartments during their time abroad, and who have actually made money by arbitraging the difference between the money they made through Airbnb and their living expenses abroad. That is to say, they were paid to vacation.
Sure, the service has its drawbacks, such as high cleaning and service fees, and you're often rolling the dice on a place and the tenants who own it, but the payoff can be huge.
From a L.A. mansion designed in 1926 by Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. to a 19th century water tower in Berlin, we've culled a few of our favorite listings on the site. Let us know if you ever try any of them…

An original two-part series exploring the many faces of Brooklyn’s motorcycle culture.
We asked friend of Huckberry David Infante to hit the streets to see whether Brooklyn's robust bike culture was legit or whether it was just the latest sign of the yuppficiation of Brooklyn. Herewith, Part 1 of 2 from the front lines…
When I moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in the winter of 2010, I was ready for the cads of dapper dudes & quirky girls crawling over each block, but I was completely blown away by all the motorcycles. The country’s (and maybe, the world’s) bleeding hipster heart is teeming, seething with bikes.
In just four years, the registered motorcycle population in Brooklyn skyrocketed nearly 25%, from around 7,300 in 2007, to 9,100 in 2011. If my math is right, that means each square mile of Brooklyn’s 71 has an average of 128 motorcycles in it at any given time.
I made a natural inference. Rich hipsters must love motorcycles the same way they love iPhones and American Spirits, for the same reasons. Motorcycles’ place in Western pop-culture is incredibly dense (Easy Rider, Top Gun, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Motorcycle Diaries… actual Hells Angels), but owning one isn’t terribly difficult if you’ve got the money.
Like everything else they seized upon, I figured Brooklyn’s twenty-something hipster crowd had bought into motorcycles to co-opt their cool.
The wondrously surreal art works of Erik Johansson.
Erik Johansson manipulates photographs to do strange, strange things. Seamlessly blending the real and the surreal, Johansson's photographs make even the most seasoned Photoshop pros do a serious double take and put to shame the design team behind North Korea's vaunted hover craft fleet.
Ambulances refit like limousines give VIP passengers the emergency treatment.
If you’ve ever been on the road and seen an emergency vehicle make like Moses and part a sea of cars, you’ve likely felt the envy (at least for the driver), wishing you could do the same. Some shady guys in Russia decided to capitalize off that feeling.
They devised a deviously clever scheme, refitting ambulances with luxury amenities – leather seats, caviar, and champagne – and renting them out for $200 an hour. Naturally the fake ambulances are also equipped with the all-important siren for a quick trip from point A to point B.
Check this Tumblr out if only for the awkward photo of Alexander Graham Bell kissing within a tetrahedral kite.

When you’ve been in the business of photographing the world for 125 years, you’re bound to wind up with an archive that feels more like a treasure hunt than a collection of discarded prints. In honor of National Geographic’s anniversary, the magazine recently launched FOUND, a Tumblr showcasing “photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past,” by featuring photos that “have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.”

A look back into the future of space colonization.
How Kubrick is this?
Riding on the success of their 1969 moon landing, NASA began to entertain the thought of sending ordinary people to live out in space, permanently. These artist renderings show the space cities as they were conceived in the summer of 1975 as part of a series of studies looking into the possibility of sustaining human life in giant orbiting space ships.
Is there anything scarier than being alone at sea and staring down a rogue wave? Well, big wave rider Mark Visser wants to surf them.
The rogue wave. Elusive, mysterious, destructive, and downright terrifying. Long the source of sailors' myths and fears, these waves – also known as "monster waves", "freak waves", and "killer waves" – are no figments of imagination.
Forged in a timely meeting between strong currents, and winds and waves moving in opposite directions, once the conditions are met the mutant wave takes on a life of its own.
The largest diamond ever found is not on Earth, but in a galaxy far, far away.
Discovered in 2004 and named after The Beatles' song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Lucy is classified as a white dwarf – the dead remains of a normal-sized star. In the process of its several billion-year-long lifespan, 90% of the star's mass crystalized, forming a giant diamond equal to 10 billion trillion trillion carats.
You can't even begin to imagine how big of a blue box you'd need to hold it. (But I'm sure your wife or girlfriend can.)
