The idea of people with extraordinary powers has been part of our lives. Most of the time we associate these special powers to characters and superheroes from comics and movies like Superman, mutants like the X-men, and more recently to vampires and werewolves from the Twilight series. But do people with extraordinary powers really exist? Are there reallife people out there that really can do "phenomenal" things? Here are just four examples of "regular" people from across the world with a special gift, the ability to use amplify their senses and create a supernatural ability.
Wim Hof, aka the Iceman, is able to do something amazing with his body: control his body temperature. The Iceman is the first ever person to run a marathon in -20 degree weather barefoot in just his shorts. In prepartion for the marathon, he was put through the test of sitting through freezing cold water for more than 30 minutes. While the average human would be severly injured or even dead at that point, the Iceman was actually able to increase his body tempature.
A book in the shape of a t-shirt? Thatâ€™s right, that is The N-spired Story, the worldâ€™s first ever book printed on interactive t-shirts. It all starts with some of the most amazing stories that you submit on our website. Based on the usersâ€™ votes, we select a story and have one of the worldâ€™s most creative artists interpret it and create a design that is then printed on a t-shirt. But it doesnâ€™t stop there, by using image recognition technology, you can also have the t-shirt tell you story by simply pointing your mobile phone at the design and watch it come to life via videos, augmented reality, etc. Each month, we create a new t-shirt, or in other words, a new chapter in The N-spired Story.
