EXOS Arm Brace Makes You Want To Break Your Arm For Kicks

EXOS Arm Braces_w Boa Lacing System

By David Ponce

No, no, not really. Don’t sue us. But this arm brace really is kind of cool. First off it’s waterproof and attaches via Boa lacing. It’s also radiolucent, which is a fancy way of saying you can take X-rays of your broken bones without having to take it off. It comes in a bunch of fancy colors and finally, once the time comes to let your arm see the light of day again, the Boa lacing allows you to simply release a dial to loosen it.

Might not be the best idea to put it on a child for whom every button is an invitation for disaster, but for everyone else, living dangerously just got a little more inviting.

    Actually I didn't know that. It was meant only for serps. It does this
    on every article?

    Yup, every feed that goes through Google Reader to Oh Gizmo. It looks like Google Reader creates a feed link with the prefix http://feedproxy.google.com/… If there is a way to exclude the “feedproxy” subdomain, I think you'd be back in business.
