We’re used to our superheroes looking young and fit, but artist Eddie Liu put some thought into what would happen if those heroes aged and decide to retire to whereever it is retired superheroes go.

I think the Wonder Woman is my favorite. I can totally picture her playing Mahjong with the older ladies down in Florida.

Ever wonder what it would be like to actually explore the apocalyptic wasteland of Fallout 4 on foot? Well, VR firm Virtuix’s latest YouTube video will give you an idea. They recently recorded a video of a gamer using an Oculus Rift and a Virtuix Omni-directional Treadmill to “walk” through Fallout 4.

Virtuix noted in the beginning of their YouTube clip that the game isn’t optimized for virtual reality. So, as a workaround, Virtuix used a special third-party software to make Fallout 4 compatible with both the Virtuix Omni and the Oculus Rift. The company also activated God Mode to make things a bit easier.

Check out the video below to see what the future of VR gaming might actually be like.

peter jackson doctor who

Remember how Peter Jackson was really interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who? Everyone got super excited, but we haven’t heard a peep about it in nearly two years.

That changed today.

Now that The Hobbit movies are behind him, it appears that Jackson is finally ready to sign on the dotted line for the Doctor. Seriously—the document was hand delivered by the Doctor himself.

Head on over to Peter Jackson’s Facebook page to check out the video.

Artist Allison Sohn clearly lives in a very creative household. She recently posted this gorgeous commission by her husband Adam Hughes.

This set of four pieces features some of your favorite DC ladies in the style of Alphonse Mucha’s “The Four Seasons”. They’re done in color Copic Marker with colored pencils, a little paint, and ink.

I can’t help hoping he does a variation on this for fans to purchase.

Thanks to Allison for sharing it!

It’s been 100 years since Einstein proposed his theory of general relativity. To mark the occasion, Eoin Duffy, Jamie Lochhead and Anais Rassat created an awesome little animation that will educate you on one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of all time in a little over three minutes.

And they got the next best person to Einstein to narrate—a Time Lord.
