Play Portal on your graphing calculator (and other things we didn’t cover)

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's today's GeekBytes, so read it, maybe? Today, you can play Portal on a calculator, buy an extremely expensive Lego brick, and be a hipster in disguise with a practical Polaroid camera.

Most expensive Lego brick ever costs $14k, already sold [Brick Envy]

There are some expensive Lego kits out there (I’m looking at you, London Tower Bridge!), but none are anywhere near this solid 14k gold 2-by-4 brick, originally given to an employee after 25 years with the company. The brick weighs a respectable 25 grams, and it would set you back over $14,000—if it wasn’t for the fact someone already bought it, anyway. That would be one pretty amazing gift to open on Christmas, right?
