It's been two days since 24-year old, former PhD student James Holmes opened fire in a packed, midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, CO, killing 12 and injuring 59, and disturbing details continue to surface concerning Holmes' booby-trapped apartment.

According to a law enforcement official connected with the case, Holmes' apartment was decorated with Batman paraphernalia, including a poster and a Batman mask.

The same official revealed that 30 grenades containing home-made mixtures of explosive powders, jars containing explosive liquids and .223- and .40-caliber bullets were found in Holmes' third-floor North Aurora residence, all connected by criss-crossing 'trip' wires.

Aurora Chief of Police Dan Oates expressed that the apartment's explosives

3D Prescription Printers Could Be In Your Home Soon!

Filed under: DrugsEtc.Science!

3D Pillz

How would you like to fire up your printer and print out some Tylenol instead of having to go to the store??

Well it could be a possibility within the next 20 years!

Here's what we're hearing about the new capabilities:

"We developed strategies to produce integrated 3D-printer/design-software/chemistry packages whereby individuals could one day have access to chemistry and chemical discovery without the need for expensive laboratory infrastructures."

The whole thing is based on these things called "reactionware," which are vessels that can contain chemical reactions.

Using a somewhat layer cake process, they're able to add other chemicals into the gel, allowing the reactionware to be part of the reaction process!

It SOUNDS cool, but do we really want people to have the ability to access drugs so easily??

We feel like this would be great for nursing homes, but in the average home, what would be stopping someone from cooking 500 vicodin on a whim??

We'll just have to wait and see!
