World’s First “Unstealable” Bicycle Breaks When Stolen

You need to break it in order to steal it…

Now cyclists don’t have to worry about their bicycles being stolen. Three young inventors from Chile came up with a brilliant solution that will prevent crooks from taking bicycles.

Andrés Roi Eggers, 23, Cristóbal Cabello, 22, and Juan José Monsalve, 24, were once victimized by bicycle thieves. This inspired them to drop out of college and design a bike that will actually break if anyone takes it.

The world’s first unstealable bike would actually deter thieves as the bike itself becomes the lock.

Crooks will certainly have a difficult time getting this two-wheeler as part of the frame splits in half and forms a lock when connected to a lamp post.

The best thing about this bicycle is that it would only take you 10 seconds to assemble the lock.

The trio were given $100,000 by the government to develop the one-of-a-kind bicycle known as Yerka. Their first model was sold using crowdfunding web site Indiegogo.

Their website says:

“We went back to the roots of security and made a paradigm shift: Make a lock out of the bike. Now a thief would have to cut through the main structure to take the bicycle, defeating the purpose.”

Blind Man Sees His Family For The First Time In 20 Years. His Reaction Will Move You to Tears.

This one of a kind technology is truly life-changing.

By

These wearable electronic glasses called eSight allows a legally blind person to see. Most of them retain some very limited eyesight, often concentrated in their peripheral vision. Their eyes do not receive an adequate signal for the brain to identify what is being seen. This results to blurriness, blind spot and inability to recognize contrast which are then eliminated or corrected by eSight.

On the other hand, this technology doesn't work for people who are profoundly blind since there should be some vision, although slight that can be electronically enhanced by eSight. Nevertheless, it's great to know that they can make a lot of difference to some who almost gave up, hopeless that they can see a single light or even see the faces of their loved ones after living in darkness.

This Guy Built A Working Iron Man Gauntlet That Fires Real Rocket… OMG, I Want One!

The gauntlet features a palm-mounted laser and an actual rocket launcher.

If you remember the inventor Patrick Priebe who invented dangerous things like the electromagnetic harpoon gun he created. This time he went full Tony Stark with an Iron Man gauntlet that fires an actual rocket-propelled projectile.

If you're wondering if this is fake. Nope its not. Patrick Priebe, aka Youtuber Anselmofanzero, was infamous for building custom props from games and movies and adding powerful lasers and other assorted bits of tech to them. His latest creation is the Iron Man Gauntlet.

The gauntlet doesn't just light up and feature rocket launcher mechanism, as you can see in the video below, it actually fires a real rocket-propelled projectile as well. As if that wasn't enough, Priebe also added a palm laser which is strong enough to burn materials and pop balloons. The inventor decided not to share instructions on how to make one yourself, perhaps due to the fact that it's extremely dangerous that he managed to burn himself pretty bad with a test fire of the prop shown at the end of the video....
