美开学季'防弹书包'热销

With every mass shooting in the US comes renewed fear of another.

It's a fear particularly potent among parents of young children and especially now, days away from the start of the school year.

Instead of letting their children choose a plastic backpack covered in Hello Kitty or Spider-Man, some parents are purchasing bags that double as shields in case kids get caught in gunfire.
一些家长不再让孩子们选择带有凯蒂猫或蜘蛛侠图案的塑料书包,而是购买可以同时充当盾牌的书包,以防孩子被枪击中。

Companies like Guard Dog Security, Bullet Blocker and TuffyPacks designed bulletproof backpacks to quell those concerns.
警卫犬安全公司、子弹拦截器公司和泰菲背包等公司都设计了防弹书包来减轻这些担忧。

The retailers said backpack sales spike during the back-to-school season, and all three said they saw a significant uptick in the aftermath of mass shootings.
零售商表示,防弹书包的销量在返校季期间激增。以上三家公司都表示,在大规模枪击事件发生后,其书包销量明显上升。

公厕里安装的运动传感器将对"剧烈"运动产生反应,同时重量传感器一旦感应出超过1人的重量,便会触发警戒措施。

The toilets have also been designed to prevent rough sleepers taking shelter inside: If a user remains in the toilet for too long, a warning message will play, while the lights and heating will switch off.
