This article reminds me of a similar incident whereby a guy ran through a sliding glass door (shattering it), was cut on the broken glass and subsequently bled to death... a strange way to go for sure.

A dear extended family member gifted me a pair of those imagination goggles for Christmas this year. I think I'll take a photograph of myself wearing the thing to send to her, then donate the contraption to some group / school that'll actually make use of it.
