Famed developer Nile Niami’s “The One” is touted as the most expensive house in the urban world, and rightfully so, with its $500-million USD price tag. The home was designed by architect Paul McClean in collaboration with interior designer Kathryn Rotondi, and includes: 42 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms, a massive 5,500-square-foot master suite, 30-car garage with two car showcases, a 400-foot jogging track, four-lane bowling alley, movie theater, and much more.
The Sling Pilot Academy spotted the bizarre “Jetpack Guy” flying at 3,000-feet near LAX back in December, and just recently, somebody discovered a humanoid drone that matches its description. To be more specific, it’s basically a 1:1 human mannequin strapped to a drone that can be remote controlled from afar, called the Duocopter with KK 2.15 Flightboard. Despite its size, this drone weighs in at just 10.7-pounds and powered by two 250Kv brushless airplane motors connected to a 10S 3000mah lithium polymer battery.

Designed by architect Zoltan Pali, the Orum House in Bel Air appears to be levitating, but it’s all just a clever optical illusion. Perched above the Los Angeles skyline, this steel and glass 18,850-square-foot mega mansion accomplishes this effect is accomplished with a transparent ground floor, along with a cantilevered design. The home has three wings, with each pointing at a different direction so you always have the best unobstructed views.
