You’ve seen the duct tape wallet? Take your duct tape art to the next level!
Using maps from images taken by NASA’s orbiting Mars Odyssey and Mars Global Surveyor, Google provides users images of the Martian surface. View mountains, craters, dunes, ridges, canyons, and plains… all by name. You can also view the location of various spacecraft that have explored Mars.
It works just like Google Maps, you can zoom in, drag from side to side, and pinpoint locations. ï¿½ You can view by elevation, by infrared, or by the straight image.
Hopefully, Google will follow through with plans to add the images to Google Earth, which would allow you to tilt and pan the image. ï¿½ Until then, enjoy the browser based version here – it’s pretty cool.
This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Ok, maybe not THE coolest, but it is clever. Ok, maybe not clever… Actually, it’s probably kind of dumb. But who knew Duct Tape could be so useful?
Most people agree that Duct Tape can save you money on costly repair bills but did you know that you could create a wallet to hold all of the money you’ve saved? It’s not as difficult as it sounds and in just a few simple steps, you could be the proud owner of this year’s most important fashion statement (Duct Tape is my life).
Full step-by-step instructions for your very own Duct Tape wallet are available directly from 3M.

The MythBusters have since done an episode on all things Duct Tape where they built a sailboat out of Duct Tape. Unfortunately, they did not get the plans from me.
