For a generation digitally wired from childhood, and reared on apocalyptic videos and computer-generated movie epics, not to mention the exploits of hackers, these events showed the real world to be as tightly networked, and for that reason as easily disrupted as the virtual one, even as the grown-ups in charge, the guardians of order, seemed overwhelmed and overmatched, always a step behind.
Micro-robot self assembly. Fascinating. Somewhat terrifying.
Have been meaning to photograph this set for some time as its so well done. Finally got around to it last week and this shot was my fave. It’s pretty different than my previous #LEGO shoots in a few new ways; figured I’d go the extra step and add a little motion to make it really stand out.

"Evans has become a superstar thanks to the Captain America and Avengers films, and he’s winningly wholesome as Steve Rogers. But Snowpiercer reveals a more intriguing side to the actor in which his all-American earnestness is supplemented by a raw hunger, producing a flawed character who must claw his way to heroism."
Just watched Snowpiercer. Definitely worth a watch. I especially respect the simultaneous Theatrical and VOD release. Well-done. This should be the movie business default or at least VOD within a few weeks.

Cool interview with GDT. I read this book a few years ago, and have to say very interested to see what they’ve done on FX.
"What they found is that compared to those who score low on creativity, the participants who scored highest tended to have a greater volume of grey matter in the “right posterior middle temporal gyrus” (pMTG), an area of the brain related to the aforementioned creative traits."
As we move past the hype and the early adopter stage, 3D printing is here to stay and with today’s groundbreaking announcement the company I am proud to work for has put a stake in the ground that we are committed to pushing the next next industrial revolution forward with a remarkable combination of open source software and innovative hardware.
The game has been changed.
