furiosa

Not only has Mad Max Fury Road inspired a lot of conversation and fan reaction, but it’s also inspiring artists who, as this very accurate tweet explains, can’t stop drawing Furiosa and other characters from the movie.

It really has been amazing. Every day, I see more art and it shows no sign of slowing down. A whole bunch of examples are available after the break from professionals and fans alike. The #Furiosa tag on Twitter is also a font of creativity.

Check out some of our favorites after the break.

enterprise building

Star Trek fans have a new photo op destination if they’re in the mood to visit the only officially licensed Star Trek building in the world. Located in China, the building is home to NetDragon Websoft and is the brainchild of uberfan Company Chairman Liu DeJian who licensed the rights from CBS to build it. It took over 6 years and 160 million dollars, but it’s a one of a kind structure that also boasts 30 foot slides to get from the third floor as well as automatic sliding doors between offices.

Take a closer look in the video after the break.
