The New York College of Health Professionals, a holistic health school, is launching a line of clothing that they claim enables the wearer to easily self-administer accupressure. Apparently, the wearer only need press on small seeds sewn into the clothing at specific points. The new clothing brand is called MyChi. From a press release:
"Imagine it’s the ninth inning, the score tied, you are one run up but bases are loaded with no outs. I wouldn’t want to be the pitcher," says Lisa Pamintuan, who years ago played at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open and is now President of New York College, the 25-year-old pioneering institution of Holistic Health (www.nycollege.edu). "However, hopefully, our baseball cap will make situations like this a little easier. All athletes look for ways to enhance their performance, whether on the field or the tennis court. I wish I had worn this line of clothing when I was playing at Wimbledon as a 16-year-old. I would have been able to press the acupressure points in the clothing, like my sweatbands, and I would have been able to be either energized when I was tired, or relaxed when it was a tight match..."

"We are moving forward to the market, but our primary business is in offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs, not selling clothing. We are hoping that companies like Nike, Reebok, Champion, Russell, Adidas and other major sportswear companies will see the value of the College’s technologies," says Lisa Pamintuan.
This gadget does exactly as promised: it looks like a thumbdrive (sort of) and fries the circuitry of any computer it’s plugged into.

The Cobham catalog, exposed by The Intercept, features countless pages of surveillance gadgets sold to U.S. police to spy on American citizens: tiny black boxes with a big interest in you. In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.
This image depicts the most commonly-found stylesheet colors on the web’s top sites—Paul Hebert did an amazing amount of analysis and this is just one of the intriguing visualizations he came up with. Most of these are obvious staples, especially HTML red and blue, though it’s interesting how far the blue “cluster” is from the […]

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface.
