+ - A carbon fibre e-bike: built for Batman->

Submitted by turkeydance
turkeydance (1266624) writes "Made of carbon-fibre and serious gadgetry, the Visiobike looks as if Batman decided to fight crime on low emissions. Its makers are billing it as a 'high-tech electric bicycle' and it certainly comes with a range of bells and whistles (but disappointingly it lacks an actual bell). The bike is controlled via a handlebar-mounted smartphone, giving riders the chance to stuff yet another aspect of their life into an app."

Submitted by turkeydance
turkeydance (1266624) writes "Kids, do not try this at home: Scientists have found that they can create high-quality graphene sheets using a kitchen blender and ordinary dishwasher detergent. The findings, published in the journal Nature Materials, outline a fresh way to create large amounts of this remarkable material – which could speed up the process toward putting them into future computers, smart coatings and solar cells.

turkeydance (1266624) writes "yes, Slashdot Beta does things like this. not my fault......

Widespread panic in the rap world — the high-end cough syrup that's become the lean of choice for Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy, and MANY other rap figures has officially been taken off the market ... all because of its reputation as a widely abused drug.

A rep for Actavis — famous for the highly-refined cough syrup — tells TMZ, "Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product."

+ - New 'Google' for the Dark Web Makes Buying Dope and Guns Easy->

Submitted by turkeydance
turkeydance (1266624) writes "The dark web just got a little less dark with the launch of a new search engine that lets you easily find illicit drugs and other contraband online.

Grams, which launched last week and is patterned after Google, is accessible only through the Tor anonymizing browser (the address for Grams is: grams7enufi7jmdl.onion) but fills a niche for anyone seeking quick access to sites selling drugs, guns, stolen credit card numbers, counterfeit cash and fake IDs — sites that previously only could be found by users who knew the exact URL for the site."

+ - New device aims to treat gunshot wounds

Submitted by turkeydance
turkeydance (1266624) writes "Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest. Although there’s nothing simple about the impact of a gunshot wound on the human body, the process of treating gun injuries on a battlefield might become a bit faster and safer. At least, that’s the goal of the XStat, a new syringe-like device that injects a dressing straight into a wound. The XStat, created by company RevMedX (which stands for Revolutionary Medical Technology), is still a patent-pending design. — See more at: http://www.alloutdoor.com/2014..."
