We all raised an eyebrow with this one. Rice University has created a material that can stop speeding bullets. Now we figured that this is what already created bullet proof vest were for, but apparently we were wrong. Have a look at this video and see for yourself.
So now we know that polyurethane can stop speeding bullets and we can all be Superman! This is not a DIY job people! But we say that if it can save lives use it!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYBODY

This is the future of clothes shopping. Ever go to the fitting room to try on clothes but you have to either wait for an attendant or take a number. Then once you get inside the fitting room there are sharp pins in the carpet and on the bench? Well we have news. Soon you won’t have to go the fitting room to see how you look in an outfit! The Windows Kinect device scans your body’s exact measurements and allows you to toggle through the store’s entire catalog without actually trying on a single outfit. This would be good technology to have for online shopping at home. Check out the video:

It seems the mystery may be soon over about the location of Amelia Earhart’s crash site. Some bones were found about 40 years ago on an island in the South Pacific. It was unclear through visual inspection as to what sex the bones were so they ended up being sent to a lab. The lab later (incorrectly) identified the bones as being “male” and the bones were set aside and nearly forgotten, until now. Recent inspection of Amelia’s take-off video below shows a “poof of smoke” coming from the plane as it tore down the runway. Historians believe the smoke was the main reception antenna breaking off. Without this antenna, Amelia could not communicate with the ground crew or navigate. The news about the wrong identification, take-off footage and other artifacts found on the island are leading to a renewed interest in the Earhart mystery.
