Japanese Company Creates “Smart Glasses” That Can Allegedly Cure Myopia

Japan’s Kubota Pharmaceutical Holdings claims to have developed smart glasses that, if worn just an hour per day, can allegedly cure myopia.

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common ophthalmological condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. To compensate for this blur, you have the option of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses, or the more invasive refractive surgery. But a Japanese company claims to have come up with a new non-invasive way of dealing with myopia – a pair of “smart glasses” that project an image from the lens of the unit onto the wearer’s retina to correct the refractive error that causes nearsightedness. Apparently, wearing the device 60 to 90 minutes a day corrects myopia.

This Premium Gin Is Made From Distilled Elephant Dung

It’s hard to believe that elephant dung could be the main ingredient of a premium spirit drink, but it’s true. South African gin Indlovu is made with botanicals harvested from the pachyderm poop.

Paula and Les Ansley, both former professors in different fields of biology, decided to moved from the UK to South Africa, after retiring, and come up with a way to contribute to conservation efforts in the region and support the local community. Neither of them had any idea that elephant dung would play such a big part in their plan, it just sort of happened. Today they run a distillery that uses “botanicals foraged by elephants” and harvested from their poop to create Indlovu gin, a unique spirit that doesn’t taste anything like you’d imagine.

LumiLor – The Electrical Paint That Lights Up at the Flip of a Switch

LumiLor is the world first and only patented electroluminescent paint, which can light up virtually any solid surface when an electrical current passes through it.

Luminescent paint has been around for decades, but it has never looked as cool as the ingenious invention that is LumiLor. Fluorescent and phosphorescent paints only maintain their glow for a short duration after being exposed to long-wave ultraviolet (UV) radiation while radioluminescent paint contains a small amount of a radioactive isotope mixed with a radioluminescent phosphor chemical. Lumilor, the world’s first electroluminscents coating, only requires an electrical current to achieve its glowing effect, and can be used to create awe-inspiring light-shows at the flip of a switch.

Engineers Develop “White Cooling Paint” That Could Reduce Use of Air Conditioning

The idea that a simple paint could could compete with modern air-conditioning sounds crazy, but researchers at Purdue University say it could become a reality thanks to a cool new “radiative cooling paint” they developed.

Engineers at Purdue University recently unveiled a revolutionary white paint that they claim can keep surfaces up to 18 degrees Fahrenheit (7.8 degrees Celsius) cooler than their ambient temperature, by absorbing almost no solar energy and actually sending heat away from the surface it is covering. Think of it as a way of turning basically any space into a refrigerator, only without the energy cost.

Engineers Claim to Have Created the World’s First Man-Made Non-Cuttable Material

An international team of researchers claim to have created the first synthetic cut-proof material that actively destroys the tool trying to cut through it.

Called Proteus, the revolutionary synthetic material is inspired not by diamonds and sapphires, the toughest natural materials known to man, but by the cellular skin of the grapefruit and the fracture resistant shells of the abalone mollusk.

Dumb People Are Allegedly Paying $350 on an “Anti-5G” USB Stick

If you’re dumb enough to pay hundreds of dollars for a simple USB stick with just 128Mb of storage in hoping that it will protect you from the “devastating effects” of 5G, then you deserve to be scammed.

Here at OC we’ve always refrained from judging people for their actions, but we draw the line at paying for anti-5G products. Just the other day I was reading a story about some guy in Seattle making hundreds of dollars by selling anti-5G lotion to people dumb enough to believe it actually worked. It was most likely fake news thought up by some The Onion copycat, but today I woke up to this little gem – a real anti-5G product called a “5GBioShield”, which reportedly sells for a whopping $350. If you shell that kind of money to protect yourself from thin air, you really are dumb!
