Aiming a weapon is harder than it looks. Shooters need clear views of a distant object (the target) and a near one (the iron sight at the end of the rifle barrel) at the same time. But the eye can’t quite pull this off, as a simple experiment shows: Point at a faraway house or storefront, then try to bring both your finger and the building into focus. One or the other will be blurry.

Enter the MicroSight…. It allows the shooter to focus on both the target and the front sight.

If you ask me, David Crandall (the Engineer who developed this technology) should have quit his job, got his own funding, and started his own company. He basically just threw billions of dollars in the garbage by letting his employer (the Idaho National Laboratory) have the technology.

I need to iron most of the clothing I own, and often take flack for it; I find this video especially hilarious:

After being kidnapped by terrorists, clothing designer Tony Starch builds a high-tech weapon of steel and steam. Realizing his calling as a superhero, he sets out to rid an unsuspecting world of crime and villainy.

Those kids did such a great job on that trailer. No word on if Ironing Man II will be coming out.
