LOOT CRATE January 2015 REWIND

Now that 2015 has fully rung itself in, let’s make with something new in the way of an all new Loot Crate! If you haven’t already heard, subscription box services are quickly becoming a popular ‘thing‘ and Loot Crate is arguably one of the more popular ones available. Once a month, and for less than $20 USD including shipping, the guys and gals at Loot Crate fill up a little black box with geeky nerdy little things just for you! Pretty sweet of them if you ask me. Plus, they promise that each box will be of at least $40 USD in value!

Now, before you grumble about how they clearly sent this to me for free, (and I will obviously say nice fluffy, buttery things about them for doing that) they didn’t. I am paying for this service, so my twenty bucks (well… more like $30 since I am a Canadian, but anyway,) my cash is on the line just like yours. Did January’s Loot Crate satiate my nerdy cravings? Will I find what my geeky heart desires? Let’s open the thing up and see… (more…)

How The Trisaber from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Is Actually Awesome

- 01-14-15Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

2014-11-28-12_07_09

Star Wars is much like the competitive shaving industry – why stop at two blades when you can add two more?

Fans were ignited when a new tribladed lightsaber was revealed in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Naturally, the naysayers criticized the blades impracticality; making the argument that the two smaller blades acting as a “cross-guard” would not serve their purpose as an attacking blade could and would likely slide down and cut through the hilt. Not to mention the elevated risk to the wielders own body. Ridiculous? Let’s find out.  (more…)

A Vixen Animated Series Is In The Works. And This Is Why It’s A Great Idea..

use this first

Sorry if I’m being intolerant, but with DC Comics being among the top two amazing comic book sellers and the legendary awesomeness of the Justice League Unlimited cartoon, if you don’t know who Vixen is, then you’re just not trying to be a good enough nerd. She has a long history of heroism and deserves a ton of respect for having an original power, being a great female hero, and for representing an underrepresented faction of the world of supers. She’s never been seen live action and she’s only had part-time cartoon love, but now we’re gonna see her in her very own project. The CW is putting her in their bastion of original series’ called CW Seed. Interested? (more…)

Tinker Hatfield’s Team Working Hard To Deliver The Nike MAG In 2015

The first 30 minutes of Robert Zemeckis’s 1989 time-travelling classic Back To The Future II  takes place in the distant future – 2015. Inevitably, here we are at the beginning of 2015, and it is interesting to take note of the numerous predictions that the movie actually got right. With myriad predictions including: Eyewear (Google glasses), 3D movies (which are more popular than ever at the moment), Bionics, Automation (self-checkouts), Hands free technology (with the likes of games consoles such as the Nintendo Wii), and video calls (the dominance of Skype), and even Hoard-Board technology (Hendo Hoverboard). There are only a few things that have yet to be achieved, such as flying cars (like from BTTF), the Cubs winning a World Series, and Nike shoes with self powered laces. However, there are still 285 days to go until Back to the Future Day on the 21st of October, so there is still time for these things to develop.

It turns out that Tinker Hatfield and his team are working hard to make the Nike MAG, those shoes with self powered laces Marty McFly wore in the movie, become a reality. (more…)
