Star Destroyer Drone

0

Not really a drone, but it’s what everyone is calling R/C flying things now, because it’s “a cool word that sounds like military”  Anyway, the guys at Flite Test have made an R/C Star Destroyer, from Star Wars: The thing is gigantic.  So big that they launch it from a truck.  A Truck.  Being so … Continued

May the 4th Be with You

The above lamp was made by redditor marveldeadpool.  Yes, they made it themselves.  It’s pretty rad if I do say so myself.  He said it was Spielberg vs. Lucas, but it’s only Jaws vs. Star Wars.  He should have totally added E.T., or a Raptor.  I mean, there are 2 things representing Lucas.  But, alas, … Continued

Return of the Drone

Remember the Millennium Falcon, and TIE Fighter modifications to Drones people have done?  Well Adam Woodworth over at MAKE has been working on adding speeder bike modifications to quad-copters.  It has worked pretty well so far.  The quad copters he’s using aren’t able to lift too much, so he’s had to greatly modifiy the models … Continued

The Paper Falcon

0

Modler Bernard Szukiel has spent 4 painstaking years building this 38″ long model of the YT-1300 light freighter, more commonly known as The Millennium Falcon. This incredibly detailed model is completely made of paper.  Tiny pieces of paper painstakingly cut, painted, and glued together to form this magnificent ship.  He didn’t just stick to the outside … Continued

TIE Fighter MOD

Drones are such an overrated name, quad-copters, or cheap RC helicopters are better, but those names aren’t cool enough, so we had to go with drones.  Oh well, can’t change society, it was tried before, it didn’t work out too well for those involved. Instead of living with the mundane quad-copter design, DIYer Oliver has … Continued

PBS ruins Sci-Fi

PBS has done the regular “science as we currently understand it” take on popular Science Fiction battles.  Easily glossing over the 2nd word of the genera’s title, fiction.  Sure, if you take what we currently know of physics, and the current levels of technology that we have, space battles would largely be uneventful, boring, and … Continued

Death Star Trench Run

Every Star Wars game is required to have 2 specific levels.  Hoth, and The Death Star Trench Run.  One of those levels is finally made for the browser.  Here’s a WebGL enabled Death Star Trench run.  And yes, it is ridiculously hard to play.  Especially when the images don’t load for you.  I have yet … Continued

Indiana Jones + Star Wars Theory

0

I love me a good theory that ties random movies together.  It’s even better when we involve Nazi’s in the mix, because seriously, it is, trust me.  So when I stumbled onto this Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Jack Ryan cross theory on the assassination of Hitler, I was hooked.   I broke up the original … Continued

Star Wars Music

After a full fledged orchestra, this is how the Star Wars theme should be played, on an old school Church Organ.  On this day in 1977 the first Star Wars film was released to audiences, and it’s safe to say that history was made. Also, I have way more respect for organists now, there’s way … Continued

Han Solo

Reddit user bergerfred has made a pretty damn good representation of Han Solo encased in Carbonite as a wall decoration.  It looks pretty good if you ask me.  I don’t remember how shiny it was in Return of the Jedi, but it looks like it’s pretty spot on.  I would say that it looks alittle … Continued
