DEWALT unveils the FLEXVOLT™ system, which features the world’s first battery that automatically changes voltage when the user changes tools. The FLEXVOLT™ battery powers a new lineup of brushless 60V MAX* and 120V MAX* FLEXVOLT™ tools. What makes the FLEXVOLT™ battery (DCB606) extremely innovative is its patent-pending technology that is backwards compatible with most existing DEWALT 20V MAX* tools and chargers. When used in DEWALT 20V MAX* tools, the FLEXVOLT™ battery provides up to 4X runtime**. In addition, the FLEXVOLT™ battery provides more than 3X battery power versus DEWALT 18V NiCad.
The key to this technology is the ability of the FLEXVOLT™ battery to switch between DEWALT tools of varying voltages (20V MAX*, 60V MAX* and 120V MAX*). The FLEXVOLT™ battery automatically changes voltage depending on whether it’s being used in a 20V MAX* or 60V MAX* tool. Two FLEXVOLT™ batteries together power the new DEWALT 120V MAX* tools. This means that high power tool applications that previously could only be accomplished by corded tools, can now be performed with the DEWALT FLEXVOLT™ system of cordless tools. As a result of this advanced battery technology, jobsites can now fully transition from corded to the freedom of cordless.

Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast was introduced at Six Flags St. Louis today with St. Louis Cardinal and World Series MVP David Freese on-hand for the first official ride. Eighteen members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Louis joined Freese for the inaugural launch-ride on the park’s newest twist to one of its most popular thrill rides. Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast sends riders backwards through a 190-foot tunnel, into a 180-degree inversion, then climbs more than 200-feet in the air where they will find themselves suspended, dangling in the air, before repeating the entire chilling experience.
“I have been coming to Six Flags since I was a kid and the roller coasters have always been my favorite,” said Freese. “I was really excited to ride Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast. The backwards launch and experience of going up the tower facing straight down is a real rush.”

After loading a shell into an artillery cannon, this private forgets to get out of the way right before it is fired. Watch this crazy fail as the turret's recoil blasts back to hit the private, sending him flying backwards and out of the picture. If your still bored, check out/add my profile if you like 'fails' or are into that sort of thing.
