A Japanese shipbuilding company named IHI Marine United is developing a ship that can be powered entirely by rechargeable lithium batteries. It will be able to travel 80 km while carrying 800 passengers:

Can you imagine a language without any word for “one” or any other numbers? Aren’t numbers so important that life would be nearly impossible if you don’t have words to express them?

Apparently not, as scientists found one such number-less language:
