(Worldkings.org) Back in 2014, we looked at Noonee's Chairless Chair, a wearable seat aimed at workers who are on their feet all day with nary a place to sit down. A prototype at the time, the Chairless Chair has moved into production and has been put to use at major companies like Daimler and Audi. At the recent Wearable Technologies Munich conference, we had the chance to chat with Noonee about its finished product and try our hand (or, we suppose, ass) at wearing an exoskeleton-like chair around.

(Worldkings.org) I’ve always thought stainless steel soaps needed a different name. I mean, they remove nasty odors from your hands and all, but they don’t really quite clean you the way your beloved bacon soap does.

(Worldkings.org) Blindness in many people is caused by diseased rod and cone cells within the retina that are responsible for turning light into electric signals.
