Weird SkyMall Product

SkyMall, the famous in-flight shopping catalog, filed for federal bankruptcy court protection in Phoenix on Friday, seeking a court-supervised sale of their assets. During their heyday, SkyMall catalogs could be found in the seat-back pockets on just about every airline flight. Xhibit (parent company) Chief Financial Officer Scott Wiley said: "With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog. The substantial increase in the number of air carriers which provide Internet access, and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration's recent decision to allow the use of electronic devices during take-off and landing, resulted in additional competition from e-commerce retailers and additional competition for the attention of passengers, all of which further negatively impacted SkyMall's catalog sales."

XStat Gadget

Revmedx, a company based in Oregon, has invented XStat, a small syringe that can seal gunshot wounds in seconds by releasing small rapidly-expanding sponges into the wound that exert pressure and stop blood flow. Available in two sizes (30mm / 12mm in diameter), it stops hemorrhaging and meant for wounds too deep to be compressed externally or with a tourniquet. Once the homeostatic material is inserted into the wound, it then expands from the inside out and stops the bleeding by creating pressure. The sponges found inside these syringes are all coated with homeostatic agent and contain a radiopaque marker for easy detection via X-ray. Continue reading for a video and more information.
