Odor-proof underwear, 40 years of Virgin Records and a DIY digital microscope in this week's look at the web

British inventor Paul O’Leary has developed a product he calls “Zorflex”—a carbon
cloth developed to absorb odor. O’Leary uses the fabric in his new
underwear brand Shreddies, created for sufferers of severe
flatulence. While the shorts for men and women are reportedly rather
useful in stopping odor, unfortunately for everyone they do little to muffle sound.
