Frankfurt Airport is Really an Imperial Starport

Not often does our world throw up such coolness as starships circling airports. Actually, it never really does that, but that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine. Since Star Wars Episode VII is in the works, you can expect a lot of things related to the movie making rounds. In that vein, checkout this sweet video that shows the Frankfurt Airport transformed into an Imperial Starport.

Superbly Detailed Steampunk Inspired Sculptures

There was a time when Steampunk was super hot, and you could see all things Steampunk make rounds of the web. It may be past its prime for the moment, but Steampunk as art is here to stay. The sculptures here aren’t essentially Steampunk, though the influence is clear. Made by French sculptor Alain Bellino, the sculptures are often made by transforming old items into various shapes.

It’s not Valyrian Steel, but these Game of Thrones Replica Weapons are Pretty Neat

Whether you prefer the hacking and slashing style of Westeros, or the succinct water dance of Bravos, you need a sword in your hand. Since you don’t want to slash anyone with your sword either, it is better to give up on the Valyrian steel, or steel for that matter; foam is where the action is. The latex weapon is safer, and you could put it to good use in LARPing, reenacting, and roleplaying.

BugJuggler, the 70 foot Robot That Juggles Cars

BugJuggler the robot is the next big thing that will make circus jugglers look like the noobs that they are. This robot is massive; standing at 70 feet tall; and it’s built for singular purpose, that of juggling cars. The gigantic bot will pick up a car, throw it in the air, and catch it again. We suppose it could do the juggling with any car model that ever existed, but it seems partial to the VW Bug; hence the name.
