George Takei is a beautiful human being.
I love George Takei!
George Takei being amazing and mocking these sad, pathetic bigoted idiots in his glorious style
It is the best thing
LOOK AT ALL THIS STAR-SASS RIGHT HERE :D
Rebecca follows George Takei on Facebook and much of what he posts is hilarious.
Do you ever wonder what your toys get up to when you aren’t around? Malaysian photographer Zahir Batin stages fantastic scenes using his Star Wars figurines that demonstrate some awesome possibilities, which range from cute and playful to action-packed or downright somber. A group of Stormtroopers hang out with some sweet chicks while another pair takes the day off to go fishing. Epic battles take place and those who survive bury and mourn their fallen comrades.
What’s more, over on Facebook Batin freely shares the techniques he uses to achieve these shots and encourages other people to give it a try. For many of the photos he uses strings, wires and twigs to position the action figures and then simply removes those supports from the final images using Photoshop.

‘THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: THE WINDWAKER’ LINK NENDOROID COMING IN AUGUST
It looks like Good Smile Company and Max Factory‘s Luigi won’t be the lone Nintendo Nendoroid from the line for much longer. The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker Link Nendoroid we saw at Toy Fair 2013 will be sailing to retail in late August.
Like most all Nendoroids, Link will stand a little less than 4″ tall and come with enough swappable parts to fill an inventory screen. Link’s Hero sword (and a sword-swinging effect piece), Hero’s shield, a heart container, and the game’s Wind Waker baton will all be present and accounted for in the figure’s box, plus a clear base to pose everything on. Of course, the figure will come packed with plenty of facial expression parts as well, including a smiling expression, a more fierce combat expression and a funny nervous expression. There’s no massive King of Red Lions ship accessory, however, so fans will have to simply build their own.
3-D Interactive Display Uses Fog As Screens
Engineers have built an interactive display using a tabletop system and mounted personal screens made of fog. Projectors light the fog for each user and a camera system monitors movements, allowing each person at the table to manipulate and share three-dimensional data.
A team at the University of Bristol in the UK say their device, called MisTable, is see-through and reach-through. Both fog screens and the table display can be manipulated by users.
"The personal screen provides direct line of sight and access to the different interaction spaces," said Sriram Subramanian, a professor of human-computer interaction. "Users can be aware of each other’s actions and can easily switch between interacting with the personal screen to the tabletop surface or the interaction section. This allows users to break in or out of shared tasks and switch between individual and group work."
Compare this to the Displair, by Russian inventor Maxim Kamanin. See the MisTable video below.
