    Self defence sprays that are legal to carry and use in the United Kingdom

    I’ve seen a lot of people (mostly women, for reasons which may be obvious) speaking about being worried when going out, be it alone or even with friends, both in the day and at night. I know that a lot of female friends of mine carry around a can of antiperspirant or a pot of pepper to use if they’re ever attacked. What I know a lot of people don’t realise is that there are products out there which work in a violent situation and help in catching the assailant for the best part of a week afterwards.

    Known as ‘criminal identifiers’, these sprays are brightly coloured dyes which can be sprayed in the face of an attacker. Unlike things such as CS or Pepper sprays, criminal identifier sprays are legal in the UK.

    There’s a few available on the market, with farbgel and Mace’s Stoppared being the mostly highly recommended.

    What these sprays do is release a sticky, brightly coloured dye. It’s difficult to wipe away and stains the skin a bright red colour. No matter how hard an attacker might try to remove it from their skin and clothing, the staining typically lasts for around a week and doesn’t even start to fade until after a few days have passed.

    Unlike CS and Pepper sprays (which, again, aren’t legal in the UK) criminal identifier sprays don’t cause irritation or pain to an attacker. Instead, they expand and clog up the area sprayed with a kind of sticky foam that’s difficult to wipe away. It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police.

    Each can of the sprays costs around £10 each, though it may be cheaper when buying multiple canisters and if you shop around.

    and every indication is that Facebook is censoring every mention of these events. videos, photos, texts are being deleted without any warning, any explanation. a young Black man was a victim of government-sanctioned homicide, and the residents of the city refuse to take it sitting down.

    I’d like it if i could get

    - a bloody camera which didn’t play sound files when i took a photo

    - a music player that didn’t flash bloody lights - which is amusing for five seconds then just annoying then drives you a murderous rage as it keeps you awake…

    This is a bit future-shock …

    A small consumer-level molecular scanner lets you analyze the objects around you for relevant information, from food calories or quality, medicine, nature etc … This could be the start of the Internet of Everything

    The Kickstarter was launched yesterday and made it’s $200,000 goal within 24 hours - the potential for this tech is huge. Watch the video embedded below to see the potential:

    Smartphones made it easy to research facts, capture images, and navigate street maps, but they haven’t brought us closer to the physical environment in which we live – until now. 

    Meet SCiO. It is the world’s first affordable molecular sensor that fits in the palm of your hand. SCiO is a tiny spectrometer and allows you to get instant relevant information about the chemical make-up of just about anything around you, sent directly to your smartphone.

    Out of the box, when you get your SCiO, you’ll be able to analyze food, plants, and medications.

    For example, you can:

    • Get nutritional facts about different kinds of food: salad dressings, sauces, fruits, cheeses, and much more.
    • See how ripe an Avocado is, through the peel!
    • Find out the quality of your cooking oil.
    • Know the well being of your plants.
    • Analyze soil or hydroponic solutions.
    • Authenticate medications or supplements.
    • Upload and tag the spectrum of any material on Earth to our database. Even yourself !

    You can find out more about the product at it’s Kickstarter page here

    EDIT: There seems to be a lot of skepticism about the product (I’m not a scientist, but the idea is certainly compelling). There have been calls at Reddit calling this out, yet the company has posted addressing the concerns here

    I NEED this
