Liquid crystal technologyOn the long list of things you should never, ever do, shining a laser pointer at an airplane is definitely very close to the top. They might seem harmless when you're using a laser pointer to play... with your cat, but the bright beams the tiny tools produce can be detrimental to a pilot's orientation, and even cause vision damage when they strike a cockpit. Literally thousands of reports of laser pointer "attacks" on planes are reported by pilots every year, and the idiots that do this kind of thing just don't seem to be taking the hint. Now, researchers have developed a way for pilots to battle back against laser-wielding morons with a new windshield technology that essentially kills the lasers before they can cause a problem. In a presentation at this year's spring meeting of the American...

Chinese scientists put humanEverything we know about evolution tells us that humans have primate ancestors, and that the development of our complex brains is what allowed ancient humans to forge the path that we're on today.... Determining what changes in primate brains prompted our fork of the evolution tree to take shape is something scientists in China are tackling in a revolutionary -- and scary -- way. A new study led by researchers at the Kunming Institute of Zoology combined human brain genes with modern macaque monkeys, creating transgenic specimens that demonstrate more advanced problem-solving skills than their unmodified brethren. If you think this sounds like the plot of a bad sci-fi movie, that's because it does. Geneticists have identified many genes which differ between humans and primates, but...

Doctors accidentallyPain is something that the vast majority of us just have to deal with, and sometimes on a daily basis. Not being able to feel pain is almost unimaginable, but that's the life one woman in Scotland has... been living for 66 years. She doesn't feel cuts, burns, and even surgery doesn't register with her, and she's lived her entire life thinking that was perfectly normal. Her case, which was published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, only caught the attention of doctors after she recovered from orthopedic hand surgery with no reported pain. As with all patients, she was given a suite of pain-numbing meds while the operation was carried out, but even after the drugs wore off she reported absolutely no pain whatsoever. That's when doctors realized something was amiss. The woman's...
