You know you want this giant Raspberry Pi cake (and other stuff you missed)
Did you see the massive Lego Hogwarts that Alice Finch made? You haven't? Well, drop this article and go stare at it right now. It's a little bit of magic right there! However, if you're not the sort to get excited over Lego architecture and prefer sweeter things instead, we've got a few things in today's GeekBytes that might be more to your taste.
This is a Raspberry Pi cake. Though it does not, sadly enough, contain raspberries, it remains a marvel of modern confectionery. Made to celebrate the Raspberry Pi's first birthday, the cake was presented to Pete Lomas of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Andrew Robinson (creator of the PiFace) at the recent Embedded World conference in Nuremberg. If you're curious about the creation process, Element 14 posted a photo gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Trendy Shibuya-based FabCafe seems to have a thing about getting people to take bites out of their loved ones. For Valentine's Day, the cafe gave women the option to print out little chocolate replicas of their heads. Now that that's done and dealt with, it looks like the men are going to have their time to shine. However, instead of crafting cocoa-based versions of their craniums, the guys will be able to deliver a bag of gummies shaped just like them. Er. Sure?
Steve Carpenter all but has a lifelong fascination with the Tomy Omnibots. Although they can only be described as "vintage" these days, he has made a habit of purchasing them off eBay and doing cool things to the toy automatons. In fact, he made one that can roam autonomously with the help of new ultrasonic sensors and an Arduino board. We approve.
