The End is Nearing: Micro-Robots are Building Stuff Now

This is one on many tiny robots bent on taking over the world. Seeing as how they are smaller than the tip of your finger you might be tempted to disbelieve that they are a real threat. But let me remind you of that ant hill you laid in last summer when you were trying …

Questionable Defensibility: Sandcastles on a Single Grain of Sand

Artist Vik Muniz decided over the last few years to downsize his operation and try to draw sand castles on a single grain of sand. It took him four years but it’s finally happening. Why would he do this? Because art! The process of getting a sandcastle onto a speck of rock was anything but …

I’ll do it: Send a Message to an Astroid

NASA has put out an invitation for everyone to have their name etched on a microchip and then fired at a passing asteroid. I’m guessing this is in a hope to make future visiting life forms more friendly to those with familiar names. Everybody who thinks space is cool go try this out. You’ll be …

Ever since I first heard about the Segway back in 2001 I’ve wanted one. The problem in getting one has been that they cost more than all the cars I’ve ever own combined. I just can’t justify the purchase. So for now, no Geek Chariot for me. Created by the company of the same name …

Minaturize All The Things: Hobbit Dollhouse

Artist Maddie Brindley created this Bag End dollhouse with nothing more than endless hours work, deadly glue stick skills, and basic modeling supplies. The end results are pretty impressive. It looks like it’s even for hobbit sized dolls. So for anyone who wants to play, go dig the Troll Dolls out of your sandbox because …

Use All the Patience: Amazing Imperial Star Destroyer Model

I like to think of myself as a patient person. The problem is that’s not really true. I can be patient with other people but I have no patience with myself and my slow-assed-broken-computer stuff. For this reason I’ve come to an internal agreement that I do not try to build models. Or if I …

Fragile: Glass-Dust Butterfly Displays

Michael Crowder has a unique way of creating art. He likes to take small particles of stuff like glass, sugar, ash, chocolate, etc. and stick them together to build stuff. The results are very delicate and fragile as you might expect. He must have some steady hands and nerves. I’ll bet he kills when playing …

Not too small for IMAX.

In crap-you-didn’t-know-was-possible news. The folks at IBM Research have come up with a stop-motion movie using single atoms to make up the characters. Appropriately enough the called it, “A Boy and his Atom.” Scientists at IBM Research have just earned a Guinness world record for the smallest movie ever: They created a stop-motion film by …

No Sleep For Me Ever Again

  This is it folks, if you want to continue living your life as you know it, then please don’t read this. If you want to read about the creepiest and most disturbing thing you’ll ever learn, then please continue. A tiny skeleton was found in the Atacama Desert in Chile. I’ve had to read this report …
