The product provides the user with a truly unique information hub by combining GPS, OLED technology and advanced image recognition in the form of a retractable screen device.

Chemophobia or how what you know can be dangerous to you.

More contributions to the paranoid society. Pretty soon the govt will realize that everything is dangerous in one way or other and everything will be banned. Humans will be grown, live and die inside insulated bubbles so they can be protected from themselves.What a shame.
