Secret lairs made of Lego (and other things we didn’t cover)
I tell friends and family that if I ever became a millionaire, the first thing that I would do is buy every Lego set currently in production. I never knew what I would do with that many Lego sets…until today’s edition of GeekBytes.
Carlyle and Wayne are two Lego experts that showed up at this year’s Emerald City Comic-Con with one of the most incredible custom builds I've ever seen. According to The Brothers Brick, this creation took over 800 hours to build, and is made up of over 20,000 individual pieces. The brick Batcave also has working light fixtures, a wall of weapons, and most importantly, the Batmobile. Be sure to check out theirFlickr profile for even more pictures of the masterpiece. Christopher Nolan would be proud. [via LaughingSquid]
Some desks come with convenient shelving; others are made from very sturdy wood. Media Computing Group’s BendDesk is a “multi-touch desk environment that seamlessly combines a vertical and a horizontal surface with a curve into one large interactive workspace.” The first images of the Microsoft Surface that appeared a few years ago had me worried about the state of my neck after craning over its interactive screen for more than ten minutes. It would appear that BendDesk is the solution.
If you are anything like me (my apologies if you are), then you know that acoustics can be a terrible detriment or a fantastic benefit to any evening out. Ambience is a huge part of a meal, and John Paluska, with the help of Meyer Sound Laboratories, went above and beyond the call of duty to install a sound system that could adjust to any environment. If you are in the Berkeley, California area any time soon, it might be worth popping into Comal with your ears peeled.
