Industrial design, and cohesive instructions go a long way towards making technology affordable. While my kids aren’t yet old enough to dig into this (I Think)

I can’t wait to see iterations down the road. 99 dollars for a sleek well designed case.

LEGO Tower of Orthanc

Those mad geniuses at  have unvailed yet another masterpiece. I’ve been gleefully putting together the smaller LEGO LOtR Sets, but now with the tower of Orthanc available… i might not have the discretionary funding to spare! This set comes with a 2 foot tall tower, Several minfigs, An Eagle, and an ENT! Yes a real build it yourself Shepard of the trees, as well as Gandalf the grey, Saruman the White, Grima Wormtongue, an Uruk-Hai, and a regular old Orc. All the baddies have the livery of the white hand.

I’m loosing myself over just how awesome this set looks to be, and for only $199.00 and weighing in at 2,359 pieces. The Tower stands over 2 feet tall, the ent roughly a third of that and the included chambers and gizmos inside the tower are fantastic!

Semi Auto Aquatic Robot Snake

Semi Auto Aquatic Robot Snake

Picture this robotic snakes swimming around ridding the water of heavy metals (cue wyld stallyns music) Powered by bacteria, fueled by all the good vibes of the world these automated robotic horrors swim around absorbing heavy metal particulate matter, keeping them safe from being consumed by fish.

See when fish eat heavy metal (Cue Guitar Riff) it is really bad. Since they can’t digest the metal, they store the nasty bits in their fat cells. When we eat the tasty fishes we eat the heavy metal, which in large quantities poison people…

Poison fish? Not good. But possible sentient robitic snakes? Swimming free… not sure how i feel about either of those options.

Maybe skynet is actually going to be Fishing Net? There is already video of prototype swimming robots… so it isn’t tooo far off, just really freaky.

Eclectic Method – Hackers

has mixed up fanciful clips of hackers from movies into this fun little tune. I love how hackers in general are usually portrayed in the movies from Hacking the Gibson, to Shall we play a game there are some hilariously awesome flicks in this montage. By the by the hackers movie soundtrack is still on my playlist, good stuff.

HACK THE PLANET!

This is how the . Perfectly I might add ”

You don’t use the same password over and over right? Let’s be honest this is the day and age of the hacker. Eclectic Method brings you “Hackers” , Hollywood’s celebration of basement dwelling 128 bit encryption masters. They’ll shut down before you can trace them, hack into the mainframe and go straight for the kernel, hell they might even insert a worm on the back of a trojan. Keanu Reeves has been one, Angelina Jolie has been one and Matthew Broderick was one before he was Ferris Bueller.

Shall we play a game? Spot every movie in this hackisode….

Cargo – Zombie Dad of the Year

The Short film Cargo, Directed by Ben Howling & Yolanda Ramke. It’s all about a zombie infected Dad’s quest to save his child. I have no clue if its the whole dad angle that got me or if its just the simple direct storytelling that only happens in short films but man alive this is a great film.

It’s just over 7 minutes long. And frankly tells a better and more heart breaking story than many 2 hour long movies I’ve seen.

Just watch it. I’m a sap so I cried big ass manly tears.

Bombermine!

I could wax poetic about the struggles on an online world. But seriously stop reading and go to .  It’s a massive 1000 person continuously looping and changing Bomberman cluster-youknowhat.

Imagine playing , with all the bells and whistles and a few funnies thrown in. There is a powerup that turns you in , , the

But never having to stop or try to find more people.   Each Room has a possible 1000 people in it North America has had 2 or 3 servers running there are EU servers, JP Servers… A non stop scrolling chat window on the side. and the ability to group up into Squads.

And the best part is? its all running in HTML5, so no flash or java needed to run this bad boy. Its a dream.

Sesame Celebrates 1 Billion

Even if you don’t have kids Sesame Street probably played a big part of your childhood, or the childhood of kids and people you know. The Count has always been one of my favorites, maybe it was my dad’s spot on impression, maybe it was the secret knowledge that sometime the count has to feed… He is a vampire you know.

But I have always loved the way Sesame Workshop as a whole uses technology. At Sesame Place (The Sesame Theme Park) they hand out cards with free episodes of Sesame to download from iTunes, Their website is full of games and educational awesomeness for kids. And they even make great use of , ,

and everything else I can find  them on.

So when a company as big and as powerful still celebrate milestones, and still uses that to further enhance their core vision of educating people. It strikes a cord with me. Congrats on Hitting ONE BILLION Views. And incredibly well played
