  Now that the winter is in full swing in the northern hemisphere, grey skies dominate the horizon—and we should all watch out for signs of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Three guys from Denmark think they’ve got the solution for SADness: they’ve invented a pair of reverse sunglasses that promise to bring back sunny days no matter how cold and gloomy it is outside. Just slide the frames on and they’ll power up six LED lights that’ll transport you to a one-person island of sunshine and good times.

Comments Off on Carbon Black is a sleek, minimalist wheelchair for active people

The Carbon Black is the slickest wheelchair you’ve ever seen. Made from ultra-lightweight carbon fiber, this wheelchair is not just a piece of medical equipment; it’s a work of art. Six years in development, the Carbon Black wheelchair is the fulfillment of a personal dream for designer Andrew Slorance. Slorance was paralyzed after falling from a tree at the age of 14. He didn’t like the uncomfortable stigma attached to being “the boy in the wheelchair” and he established his life’s goal: recreate the wheelchair .

Comments Off on 700 South African Rhinos Already Slaughtered in 2013

Poachers have slaughtered nearly 700 rhinos in their relentless pursuit for the animal’s horns, which are wrongly believed to have strong healing powers. That number is even more shocking considering that in 2007 poachers only killed 13 rhinos throughout the entire year.
