  • This movie, I want to see, if it’s ever made.

    I’m a huge Portal (and Portal 2) fan, so when I saw this fan-made pro­duc­tion mak­ing the rounds of the social media nets, I had to check it out. Wow. Watch the HD ver­sion, full screen, with the audio cranked.

  • 2012? Now what the f*#k are we supposed to do?

    Yep, looks like Ali­ens: Colo­ni­al Mar­ines will be released in 2012 — great news for any­one want­ing to go on a bug hunt. Of course, when I saw this teas­er video, I just had to share it:

  • Silent Film Director now less silent

    Just a quick update, the cool old-timey movie mak­ing app for iPhone (and yes, it does run on the iPad too) just received an update that brings the num­ber of avail­able sound­tracks up to 8. And yeah, it’s a pretty cool app, espe­cially if you’ve been want­ing to play around with movie mak­ing on your iOS…

  • Unleash your inner Spielberg

    I’m sure all of us have, at one point or anoth­er, dreamed of releas­ing that movie dir­ect­or deep inside, and mak­ing our own movie, com­plete with music and spe­cial effects. Well, if your dream is to make one that hearkens back to the golden days of silent cinema, then I’ve got an inex­pens­ive app for you.…

  • Emerging Tech: This magazine app knows what you like

    You’ve got an iPad and all the pop­u­lar magazine, con­tent, read­ing apps like Reed­er, Flip­board, Pulse, and FLUD. Well now there’s a new one using tech­no­logy from the Uni­ver­sity of Brit­ish Columbi­a’s Labor­at­ory for Com­pu­ta­tion­al Intelligence. It’s called Zite, and is it ever cool. But first, the video. Why I like it It’s a learn­ing app. Log…

  • How-To: Streaming stuff around your house

    In this increas­ingly wire­less world, it seems odd that it’s actu­ally kinda dif­fi­cult to get music or oth­er media from one device to another. In my case, I have pho­tos, movies and music all stored on a cent­ral stor­age device on my net­work — a Net­work Attached Stor­age device, or NAS. Get­ting to that media eas­ily…

  • US Space Shuttle Program Commemorated [Video]

    This has to be one of the best col­lec­tion of images of the US Space Shuttle Pro­gram any­where — built into a video that describes the pro­gram, tri­umphs and fail­ures. If you’ve got 45 minutes to spare, it’s worth a watch!

  • Aliens + Tron = Nice!

    I saw the new Tron trail­er on the week­end — yes, can­’t wait for the movie. Looks like pure brain / eye candy.  And now for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent Ali­ens; Tron-o-fied.

  • Huge Lego Mindstorms Robotic Chess Board [video]

    Gotta love the ingenu­ity that goes into stuff like this. It’s a huge Chess set, with the pieces made from Lego Mind­storm robots. 

  • The coolest indie video I’ve seen all year

    Think Dis­trict 9, or Inde­pend­ence Day. But done for $300 by someone with a crap-load of tal­ent. In Uruguay. With Giant Robots! And now he’s got a movie deal: The pic­ture will be a sci-fi thrill­er set in Argen­tina and Uruguay. In case you’re hop­ing to see the fea­ture-length ver­sion of “Pan­ic Attack!” in a…
