3D-Printed Bike Carries $140K Price Tag

The price for the bike also comes with a return trip to Tokyo.

A couple of years back, Japanese consumer electronics company Cerevo introduced its limited-edition Orbitrec road bike, which features a custom-fit frame made of carbon fiber tubes joined by 3D-printed titanium lugs.

The bike's downtube contains a GPS unit as well as sensors that measure nine ride metrics, such as angular velocity, ambient temperature, acceleration, and geomagnetic orientation.

Data collected from the sensors gets transmitted to a server in the cloud in order to create a customized ride log. The information can also be sent to a third-party cycling computer or a smartphone app (both iOS and Android are supported).

In the mix-up, an unnamed patient was given erectile dysfunction to treat her problem with dry eyes. The dysfunction cream was called Vitaros, a name very similar to the eye lubricant she was actually prescribed, VitA-POS. The patient later showed up at the hospital with symptoms including blurred vision and a swollen eyelid, all of which occurred immediately after applying the cream to her eye as directed.

Heres Erectile Dysfunction Cream in Your Eye

While that sort of situation could reasonably occur by accident with someone perhaps applying excess pressure to a container of the stuff, causing it to spatter and fly, landing in places where erectile cream should not, that's apparently not the only way.

It could have happened even more stealthily and under the cover of business as usual.

Fox News reports that a woman in Glasgow, Scotland, looking to treat her dry eye condition was mistakenly provided a prescription for erectile dysfunction cream.

Items that Are No Longer Tax Deductible

Americans looking to file their 1040 tax forms this year might understandably wonder what's deductible these days and what's not.

Why Breakfast Salads Are the Hottest New Trend

Chances are, if you order a salad for breakfast, you’re going to get strange looks. In most countries, salad is relegated to lunch, dinner, or, at the very least, a mid-afternoon snack.

Guess Who Hacked Angela Merkel?

Given the nature of world politics these days, with various leaders out as soon as they're in, not to mention the Tantrum of the Day thrown and, naturally, covered copiously, the answer to the above question could include everyone from the stealthiest spy to a fellow world leader. Like, possibly, the Tantrum Thrower-in-Chief.
