Artist's NSFW Creations Envision Robot Sex
While making an animated war movie featuring armies of battling robots, filmmaker Michael Sullivan began to get a new idea: His film should feature non-stop robot sex.
The Sex Life of Robots centers around a robot baby and his mother scanning their home computer for porn. It shows -- in graphic detail -- the scenes of robot coitus that pop up on their screen. "It's supposed to be like a silent robot porno movie from another planet," Sullivan explains. Despite the subject matter, Sullivan's creation exhibits a high degree of artistry. His eye for detail gives his movies a gritty, industrialized atmosphere, as you can see in this preview Sex Life of Robots. Warning: the video is not safe for work (NSFW).

Star Wars Plush
Judge them by their size, do you?

Youtube: Lego AT-AT in Action: Motorized Walking AT-AT

Star Wars Jedi Slippers
You know that hissing sound when Darth Vader breathes? It's not the breathing machine you've been led to believe. Really, what you are hearing is Anakin sighing because his boots hurt his feet. And Yoda doesn't talk funny because he's old and wise - his feet are sore! If only they had some nice cozy slippers to nestle their tootsies into. Good thing, at least, you can.

Danny Lyon: First we kill the Architects
I've been asked to help design a city. I am flattered. In the past, this was the job of emperors and kings. Of course, today, things are a bit more complicated.

Barbie Death Camp
Photos taken by Gabe Kirchheimer during Burning Man 2007. Burning Man is always weird and sometimes controversial. Like these weird pictures of the 'Friendliest Concentration Camp on the Playa.

A Proposal for a UN Playground
Andrew Raimist, of Architectural Ruminations, has uploaded some terrific images of Isamu Noguchi's unbuilt UN playground to his Flickr account here.
On the unrealized project, Raimist writes: “Noguchi designed this playground for a portion of the United Nations complex on the East River in New York. The project was to be privately funded and located on property given a special international diplomatic designation. Nevertheless, Robert Moses (the authoritarian director of public works for the City of New York) was able to get the project canceled. Moses was Noguchi's arch-nemisis in NYC having ridiculed his design for Play Mountain back in 1933. He continued to thwart any public park of Noguchi's design from ever being constructed in New York. I believe Moses criticized this design as 'dangerous' and little more than a 'rabbit warren'.”

IdeaFixa is an international digital magazine for photography, design, illustration and visual arts. Its objective is inspiration, vision and promotion of the participant artists. It is released bimonthly and every edition has a designated subject. IdeaFixa chooses contemporary artistic works (retro also considered contemporary) that are cosmopolitan; works that are a present vision of the world.

Und so.

Weird Hotels
There are plenty of unusual hotels around the world that could provide for any tourist a more interesting and special accommodation.

A year of following all the rules in the Bible
Kevin Kelly reviews The Year of Living Biblically, about a guy who "recently spent a year trying to follow all 700 plus rules he found in the Bible. These rules ranged from the obvious Ten Commandments to the more obscure details of Old Testament laws, which ultra orthodox Jews might follow: leaving side hair uncut, dwelling in huts on certain holidays, strict dietary routines.

Where Vehicles Are Left To Die
What happens to all of those huge hulking ships, planes, trains and construction vehicles that are just too expensive to properly disassemble? Well, in many places of the World a little back-handed passing of money to the proper authorities can allow you to dump your rusty vehicle in a single place without any repercussions.

Lego iPhone
LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya has created an iPhone replica using LEGO bricks. The price is the same as the real deal: $399.

Do You Write Like a Terrorist?
You might think your anonymous online rants are oh-so-clever. But they'll give you away, too. A federally-funded artificial intelligence lab is figuring out how to track people over the Internet, based on how they write.
The University of Arizona's ultra-ambitious "Dark Web" project "aims to systematically collect and analyze all terrorist-generated content on the Web," the National Science Foundation notes. And that analysis, according to the Arizona Star, includes a program which "identif[ies] and track[s] individual authors by their writing styles."

Klage gegen Virgin und Creative Commons
Die Eltern einer texanischen Schülerin reichten vergangene Woche Klage gegen Virgin Mobile ein, da deren australischer Ableger ein Bild ihrer Tochter in einer Werbekampagne benutzt hatte. Das Bild war von einem anderen Erwachsenen unter Creative Commons Lizenz auf Flickr eingestellt worden. Dadurch sehen die Eltern die Persönlichkeitsrechte ihrer Tochter verletzt, da weder sie noch ihre Tochter selbst die Erlaubnis zur kommerziellen Nutzung gegeben hätten. Der Fotograf wiederum klagt gegen Creative Commons, weil er sich unzureichend über die Konsequenzen einer CC-Lizenz informiert sieht, welche die kommerzielle Nutzung erlaubt.

Hardy li'l critters will be first tested in open space
The world's toughest animal has been sent into space. Tardigrades (aka Water Bears) can survive incredibly harsh conditions, including freezing to near absolute zero, extreme vacuum and radiation. Exposed to open space on the Russian FOTON M3 satellite, tardigrades are the first animals tested and perhaps the best candidate on earth for surviving space travel.

What's Weirder Than a Black Hole? Maybe a Naked One.
Black holes are weird enough. Breaking down known laws of physics to the point of unimaginable conditions qualifies as genuinely strange. But a team of Duke University and Cambridge researchers has now outlined a new twist on the theory, in which a fast-spanning black hole might shed some of the natural shields that keep scientists from observing it directly, becoming what they call a “naked” singularity.

Old Magazine Articles
This poem was submitted to the Vanity Fair editors by an obscure film critic named Carl Sandburg (1878 – 1967): "The room is dark. The door opens. It is Charlie playing for his friends after dinner, the marvelous urchin, the little genius of the screen..." Between the years 1920 - 1928, Sandburg served as the film critic for the Chicago Daily News.

Vintage Childrens Books
This digital collection consists of 20 full-text, digitized children's books. The books were selected using the following criteria: publication date, rarity, uniqueness, size, and location of publication. All of the items in the digital collection were published before 1923, and are in the public domain. The oldest book in the digital collection, Dolly's ABC was published in 1854.

Classroom of the Future (Part 2, 1987, Part 1)
Part 2 of the 1987 concept video Classroom of the Future is fairly accurate in depicting what the Internet would eventually allow people to do. Again, the voice synthesis and recognition seem superfluous.

The top 10 hand gestures you’d better get right
Anybody remember when George H W Bush tried to signal ‘peace’ during a visit to Australia in the 90s by giving a huge crowd the time-honoured two-fingered salute? Though he didn’t know it at the time, he was actually telling the whole crowd to go screw themselves
