The news comes as the United States Federal Aviation Authority prepares to integrate drones into the country’s national airspace system.

Chinese Boy Sells Kidney To Buy iPad, Now Faces Regret

A 17 year old Chinese boy had decided to sell his kidney for 20,000 Chinese Yuan (about $3,000 USD) so he could buy an iPad, according to the Shanghai Daily. I have no idea what the boy was thinking and if he knew exactly what he was getting into. I can understand when a loved one makes the decision to donate a kidney to a family member or close friend, but how about some stranger on the Internet?

We’re not sure what medium was used to contact the boy, but the boy agreed and the arrangements were made. His mother had no idea about the decision until he came home.

Meet Your Worst Nightmare: The BodyGuard

Meet the BodyGuard. A batman-like electrical glove that features a laser pointer, video camera, and can shock people with 500,000 volts. Please note, this gadget is not intended to be taken to your next business meeting. I’m not quite sure why one would need this, perhaps if you plan on walking through downtown Los Angeles on a dark night?

If it’s supposed to mock a pepper spray gun, it works as intended. I assume that the laser pointer acts as a warning for the possible attacker to back off, and the tazer finishes the job. The ‘gauntlet’ or glove (whatever you like to call it) has a hard outer shell, that may just be the perfect tool to block a strike.
