DIY lightsaber

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.

Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at

This short, XXIT from Stargate Studios, is more than a Blade Runner fan film, it’s more than a parody, it’s a work of art. All filmed on Canon EOS C300 this short is awesome, and the effects incredible. Not too surprising since Stargate Studios is also responsible for effects on shows like Heroes, The Walking Dead and 24. (Geek are Sexy)
