mini copy

If you’re something of a science nut, you might want to check out this new Kickstarter Project called the Mini Museum. It’s basically a small glass display that holds a wide variety of interesting artifacts and fossils, including dinosaur bone, a piece of martian rock, foil from the Apollo 11 command module, soil from Dracula’s castle (think Vlad the Impaler) and other interesting tidbits.

The project is headed up by a product designer named Hans Fex, and while there isn’t any concrete verification that all of these artifacts are genuine (though Fex is officially registered as a meteorite collector), it seems like Fex’s heart’s in the right place–his father, who was a amateur historian and collector, was the inspiration for this project. The price for one of these mini-displays is a whopping $239.

gates of qarth table

Cat Taylor is a “Keeper of Scrolls/Behind the Scenes writer on the set of Game of Thrones.” She recently tweeted a small picture of a conference table the crew uses and asked readers to guess what it was. It turns out this awesome table’s surface is actually the impregnable gates of Qarth. I imagine that its presence alone makes any meeting more epic and dramatic.
