James Bond is God

Yes, you heard it from me.  Ever since writer Ian Fleming created James Bond in 1952, every man’s dream has been to step into those superspy’s shoes and take out some bad guys, or foil some evil plot.  Through the cinematic history of Bond films, the character has stayed the same, even though several actors have played the part.

Now you can relive those dreams and watch the famous intros to those movies.  These intros are legendary in that many a singer have made their fame with the association of the movies.

Go!  Watch!  And remember…..

Flat Light Bulbs!

CeeLite has developed a nifty new light emitting panel that with minimal AC application, will light up large volume area.

 CeeLite Light Panel

CeeLite even claims that their panels consume less energy per light hour, and produce more candle power than current incandescent, neon and florescent lighting.

Now I don’t know about you folks, but I find this incredibly cool.  With literally limitless applications for this technology, it won’t be too long before we see this as a common domestic light source.

Ten Greatest Lego Creations

Working off of Andy’s earlier Halloween Lego submission, I came across this article on OddPeak about the ten best Lego creations they’ve come across.

 Legos

Being a past Lego enthusiast myself, I find these creations very intuitave and enlightening.  Most of the constructions use or depict current technology, and are most impressive; considering they are built from what are mostly considered children’s toys!

Makes me wish I still had all my Legos from my childhood…
