Apple Watch torture tests include liquid nitrogen, .50 cal bullet

There are certain things to be expected when a new notable product is launched -- there will be fanfare and critics and coveting and all sorts of things, and at some point once the product rolls out there will be destruction. Lots and lots of destruction. The Apple Watch is no exception, of course -- we've seen products get cooked and blended and shot and dropped and smashed and just about every other "torture test" you can think of, and now it's the Apple Watch's turn.

Bloodhound SSC 1,000 mph car gets a bullet-proof exterior

Bloodhound SSC 1,000 mph car gets a bullet-proof exterior

The world's first 1,000 mph car, the Bloodhound SSC, just became bullet-proof. This car isn't going to hit the highway in a hail of gunfire, obviously. It plans to break the World Land Speed Record in 2016. At 1000 mph, the wheels will be doing 10,000 rpm, which is 167 revolutions per second. Going that fast, any tiny rock kicked up from the car could become a lethal projectile, derailing the entire run and killing its driver, Andy Green. The Bloodhound's design team is most concerned that a chunks of metal could get dislodged from the wheels themselves and then fly towards the cockpit at incredible speeds.

Police test “less lethal” bullet alternative

Police test “less lethal” bullet alternative

In light of recent events in which lethal force was used by police (in several incidents across the United States), a new "less-lethal" alternative is being tested. Created by the company "Alternative Ballistics," this "bullet attachment" hooks on to the front of the police officer's handgun and provides a sort of airbag-like system for the first shot. Once the first shot is fired, every subsequent shot is lethal as ever. This is "The Alternative", and according to the company that makes it, it was invented by a "retired sheriff police officer who did not like that people were being shot when the officers do have time."

New type of bullet won’t shatter 3D printed guns

While 3D printing has become en vogue, especially in hobbyist communities, 3D printed firearms have become the movements most unpopular application. Governments around the world have sought to either totally ban such products or discourage their use by playing on the guns' extremely short lifetimes. That fear factor, however, may no longer be usable soon, thanks to a specially crafted type of bullet that won't destroy a 3D printed gun, especially plastic ones, no matter how many times you fire it. Definitely law enforcement's worst nightmare.
