I don't know about you, but I love to see things cut in half. Sometimes they are boring, but most of the times they are incredible, like the mechanical calculator shown above. It's hard to believe this metal mess works. Here's more stuff that looks awesome stuff when cut in half.

Used to connect wind turbines to main land, it costs $400 per foot!
