Leave it to the contemporary descendants of the Vikings, to come up with a way to help American sailors stay physically afloat longer; Congress has just approved $500,000 for testing of five Norwegian-made "temperature management" units. The firm behind this invention, Thermonor, claims to have built a device that can alter an injured sailor's limb by encasing it in a plastic cylinder to keep the body's temperature high enough to avoid hypothermia and also pressurized enough to control severe bleeding. Still though, Thermonor may want to work on the product's design a little more just so that the patient doesn't feel like they've been turned into a freakish version of Captain Hook.
