This Millennium Falcon actually flies, has no room for cargo

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2010

They had to chop away nearly the whole damn ship to do it, but this Millenium Falcon actually flies. And since almost the entire ship is gone, you won’t be smuggling any contraband. We still dig it though.

This 11 by 8-inch Millennium Falcon was released at Toy Fair this year. It’s a must have for any Star Wars fan. The remote-controlled Falcon even comes with a charging controller for the price of $50. And it’s totally easy for any Stormtrooper to disable this bird when it flies away. Just pew pew pew to that fan in the center.

Guy glues flies to paper airplanes, somewhere PETA cries

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2009

Some people have strange hobbies. Like this guy who forces innocent flies to carry paper airplanes made out of rolling papers. First he caches the fly and puts it in a plastic bag for safekeeping. Next he makes he plane. Once the plane is done, he “huffs” on the fly several times.(Seemed excessive to us, but to each his own) This is to get the hairs on the flie’s belly to stick to the superglue. Now is it?

After that, creepy dude goes outside with his new airplane toting slave and watches it fly. Other creepiness includes this dude waxing philosophic about that fateful day at Kittyhawk so many years ago. He says he sets them free when he’s done playing with them, but that’s not the same thing as leaving them the hell alone in the first place.

Rocket Iron Man flies high

Rocket Iron Man flies high
Pump this Rocket Iron Man until it reaches maximum power, then hit the launch button, it will soar up to 40 feet. At 40 feet, the glide ejects and flies back to Earth, while Rocket Iron Man falls back to Earth like, well like an Iron Man. That makes this toy kinda pointless, but hey you can shoot Iron Man up in the air and that alone makes it worth $35. Just pretend Tony Stark had a few too many drinks as he plummets head first into the dirt.

Moving sculpture is steered by flies

Moving sculpture is steered by flies
This strange looking contraption is a battery powered vehicle. It putters around a New York art gallery looking like…art. What’s interesting about it is the driver or drivers. It’s course is directed and steered entirely by flies. The plastic bubble is filled with large houseflies, and the food and water that nourishes them. That’s right, the enslavement of flies has begun.

The lights that you see shining on the flies keep them warm and as the flies do their thing, the reflections that the lights make on the top of the bubble change. Sensors send the changing light data to a controller that activates the motor and steers the machine accordingly. It’s the brainchild of David Bowen, an artist who has also created machines that track flies’ movements and make huge drawings. Pretty cool. I wonder what else they can power.
