Tony Alleyne has done what many others only dream of doing. Being a science fiction movies lover, he has modded his flat so that it looks as if it were taken from Star Trek TNG (The Next Generation). Coincidentally that’s my favourite incarnation of the series, so I agree with his choice -though I think that his resemblance to Captain Picard has also had something to do with it-. 😉 Continue reading The sci-fi Home
I am pleased to announce that from tomorrow on this site will feature articles written by authoress Ana Martínez Pedrosa. Here is a little about her:
Ana holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Santiago de Compostela, and has written articles for many journals and publications.
Look forward to Ana’s articles, starting with “The Garden of Eden”.
My favourite superhero is Spiderman. I love robots. I make compositions out of weird sounds. If I had the chance (and knew the language), I would move to Japan without hesitation. I was born in 1978.
With these facts in mind, I’m sure that you will understand why I almost cried with joy when I discovered the video linked above. 😛
Arigatou gozaimasu, Mari Kanasawa!
This little thing that I present today is an origami brooch I “invented” a few days ago. I started from a hexagonal piece of paper, with the intention of folding a tessellation (that is, when you fold the paper so that it creates a seamless repetition of shapes). While working on it I decided to Continue reading Origami Tessellated Brooch
Doraemon, the cosmic cat, must be one of the cutest japanese cartoon characters ever, and my personal favourite: he’s always smiling (unlike Kitty, which “speaks from her heart” and therefore has no mouth: duh!), and he always has some cool gadget to amuse Nobita (he’s got a magic four-dimensional pocket!!). This said, I was really pleased to know that someone had made a “real-size” Doraemon out of lego blocks. (Another proof that anything can be replicated with Lego blocks: it’s just a matter of patience and blocks -and the money to buy them). Continue reading Lego of choice: Doraemon
I am glad to announce that from tomorrow on this site will feature translations of articles written by author Carlos Bellido. Here is a little about him:
Carlos holds a MS in Computer Science by the University of Zaragoza. He writes articles related to Computer Game Development in his own blog, The long Tomorrow (in spanish). Most of these articles are of a technical nature; however, from time to time he also writes on his reflections about gaming and games. We will periodically feature translations of these articles.
Look forward to Carlos’ articles, starting with “Girls and video games”.
Ka-chunk! click! Ka-chunk!
No sound satisfies me more
Than staplers at work!
“Vanitas vanitatis, et omnia staplers”: VirtualStapler is a little lovely site which covers everything you ever wanted to know about staplers, including some aspects that you probably never thought of. The site´s main attraction is the interactive piece featured on the front page, which brings attention to an underrated yet often indispensable action, and will relieve many compulsive staplers out of the office. Several virtual staplers are included for a staple-of-the-art recreation, and many others are covered in a comprehensible gallery. Even more, you can download several stapler-themed computer desktops, and I highly recommend reading the Stapler poetry, from where I took the haiku above.
All in all, a must- visit! 😀
