Krubera Cave - The World's Deepest Cave

Here's a mind-blowing look at Krubera Cave, the world's deepest cave. This natural wonder "plunges 7,188 feet (2,191 m) into the depths of the Arabika Massif, a limestone formation dating back to the Age of Dinosaurs."

It is located in the Arabika Massif of the Gagrinsky Range of the Western Caucasus, in the Gagra district of Abkhazia, Georgia.  It became the deepest-known cave in the world in 2001 when the expedition of the Ukrainian Speleological Association reached a depth of 7,185 feet which well exceeded the depth of the previously deepest cave, Lamprechtsofen, in the Austrian Alps, by 80 m.

The Twitter Dress by CuteCircuit

Nicole Scherzinger, formerly of Pussycat Dolls fame, stepped out on an event wearing a Twitter Dress, an electronic-powered frock that displayed real tweets in real time. The dress which has 3,000 Swarovski crystals along with those LED lights was created by fashion technology company CuteCircuit. The dress is actually rechargeable via USB and the lights scroll tweets sent to the Twitter account.

The Twitter Dress was commissioned by EE, the U.K.’s first 4G mobile network, for its big launch party, so the tweets scrolling across Nicole's dress were those tweeted by or at the handle @EE and the hashtag #tweetthedress.
