bricasso

When Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks set out to build a LEGO mosaic printer, he didn’t just plan to build the mosaics out of LEGO, but the printer as well.

The Bricasso uses the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 to scan an image and then recreates that image in LEGO mosaic using 1×1 LEGO plates. That’s already pretty cool, but the fact that the printer is also built out of LEGO is what really got me.

See it in action after the break.

There’s a brand new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote debuting at San Diego Comic-Con on July 8, 2015 at the BBC AMERICA shop (booth #4129), and it’s been updated to reflect the changes made to the 12th Doctor’s Sonic. It even includes the long-awaited “flick to extend” feature.

“The keen-eyed Whovian will notice subtle differences between the Sonic Screwdriver favored by the Eleventh Doctor and the one currently used by the Twelfth Doctor. We listened to fans’ requests and have evolved the design to match what’s onscreen, including the fun flick-to-extend feature,” said Chris Barnardo, co-founder of The Wand Company.

Features include:

The 1:1 scale Sonic Screwdriver can store up to 39 remote control commands, is equipped with 12 authentic Sonic Screwdriver sound effects and a customizable personal lock code, and has 12 secret Morse code phrases from the Twelfth Doctor to decipher. Die cast in hand-polished, copper-plated metal, with a new stand that allows the Sonic Screwdriver to be displayed vertically, this device is not only a serious prop that will delight collectors, but with its host of authentic sonic sounds, it is also a cosplayer’s dream come true.

To top it off, the Sonic Screwdrivers sold at Comic-Con will each come with a signed certificate of authenticity, and will be a limited edition only available at the BBC AMERICA booth while supplies last. If you wont be attending SDCC, remote will be sold by select retailers later this summer.

boring jurassic park

Though the theme park’s name sure is catchy, Jurassic Park is a bit of a misnomer. Paleontologists are quick to point out that many of the park’s residents aren’t actually from the Jurassic era. So, CollegeHumor decided to take a look at what the park might look like if it was accurately named for different geological eras. After watching it, you’ll totally understand the decision from a marketing perspective.

hellboy-trio-agens

Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been working for years to bring the final installment of the Hellboy trilogy to theaters. However, all hope was seemingly lost when del Toro noted the following a year ago:

“I don’t think it will happen. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from my side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters.”

But now there is a glimmer of hope from Perlman himself. He’s been rallying support for the sequel as of late, and it appears that those efforts might have paid off.

He laid down a pretty powerful hint on Instagram the other day, which you can see after the break…
