Episode 2: The Empire Struzan Disney

Yesterday was the big news day, when it was announced that J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars Episode VII. Now the fans and bloggers and everyone in between is picking this news apart, trying to figure out how Abrams style will look in a galaxy far, far away. Except for more lights blinding the audience in each shot, and some shaky camera work, no one will come close to guessing anything, and it will be two to five years before the wait is over, and we find out if the episode x11 is a confusing plot on an island, or just...

Phaser! 2


Scientists have shown off an effect not unlike that of the “phasers” in the show Star Trek – but- hold yer tricorder there, Trekfan! it only works on tiny worms called nematodes. The worms were fed a molecule that, when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, changes its shape. Then they exposed to UV light, and they exhibited paralysis. When the worms were again exposed to visible light, they regained their ability to move. So, no handheld phasers yet, but maybe someday… Meanwhile, keep practicing that Vulcan neck pinch there, sport! Related articles Star Trek tricorder jumble sale discovery (guardian.co.uk) R2-D2...

Everybody Bomomo!

OK, so it’s not a common thing like Rhumba, but if you are bored out of your skull and want to make some cool pop art, then Bomomo is for you. What is it? Well it’s a little flash program that lets you create art without the mess of paint, chalk or (in my case) crayons. It gives you pattern-istic brushes and you use them to create ideas in the LCD canvas. Oh, you can try to make something recognizable by most, but the best you can do is a colorful Rorschach test. Best part is you can save you...
