The .Gif Friday Post No. 298 – Juggling Machine, Lego WTF & Nano Motor

Juggling Machine
Steampunk Lego WTF

nano motor

[Found here, here, and here.]

What fascinates me about nano motors is that the moving parts are molecules, so they never wear out. I’d assumed that they are also friction-free, but apparently that’s not the case. More here.

Michelle O. Action (Go) Figure

The latest gimmick to hit the market just in time for Halloween: The First Lady Action Figure. It is being heralded as the first toy in the likeness of Michelle Obama.  WRONG.

I like to boil things down to their essence, and the toy on the right gets my vote for Toy of the Year, especially with the photoshopoopage of the photo on the left. Those proportions just aren’t right, even for Barbie.

In context, the toy on the right is immediately recobanizeable as The First Lady in all her glory, just as Aretha Franklin and Barbara and George Bush were similarly memoribalised below:

Lego Aretha Franklin

Here at TR, our crack team of webminers previously posted Lego’s Contribution for the adulation of the devout:  a full landscape model of THE INAUGURATION.   It’s awesome.

But Michelle’s action figure is still not as awesome as this one.

[Update:  The computer hospital called up today and told me that my Univac was healthy again.  I picked up the pup about 3PM, brought him home, combed through the archives for hookup procedures. The good folks at Adam’s Electronics backed up my archives AND programs… on the hard drive.

I don’t know what caused the crash, but I spent all afternoon and evening trying to get it back up and running after a coupla more system crashes.

All my bookmarks are gone, and I haven’t resolved the emailage yet.

It’s now 1:42AM and I’m back online. I’ll be sleeping in tomorrow.]
