What sort of weird and wonderful stuff have people made with chili?

I'm helping a friend who's writing a book about anything to do with chili peppers. Right now we're trying to look for:
a) Medicinal remedies that involve chili (whether old-wives-taleish or more medically sound)
b) Tech innovations with chili
c) Other weird and wonderful uses of chili
So far we have found the use of chili as barnacle prevention, and chili facewash (apparently it's a good anti-acne agent) but nothing much else. She's trying to avoid too many cookbook-style recipes and wants more unusual uses.
My search-Fu is not that strong now.
Thank you so much!
