Marvel Seeks Tech-Savvy Girls to Create Something Big from Something Very Small
Win a chance to attend the Red Carpet premiere of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man,’ coming to theaters July 17!
The challenge invites girls nationwide, ages 14 – 18, in grades 9-12, to design and build a DIY project using at least one readily available micro-technology component, which can enable tinkerers, makers, builders and future Imagineers to execute big ideas with a board that fits in their pocket and costs less than a video game. The projects can be utilitarian, artistic or just plain fun.
In honor of Star Wars Day today, I had to share this X-Wing Knife Block. It’s amazing.
The base wasn’t easy to put together and was a bit wobbly till I added a strong glue. But the knives are really nice and the set just look fantastic. This is a great gift idea for the Star Wars fan in your life.
The set includes:
• X-Wing Style Knife Block and 5 Knives
• Includes Cook’s, Bread, Carving, Utility and Paring Knives
• Individual knife protection sheaths
• Made from Stainless Steel
• 100% officially licensed Star Wars merchandise
• Each knife is strong and durable, with a long-lasting cutting edge
The X-Wing Knife Block is available from these retailers: Amazon, Menkind, Red 5, The Fowndry and Prezzybox.
To promote the digital HD release of last Fall’s scifi film Interstellar, an old school text adventure game was just launched by Paramount Pictures.
You are one of the twelve Lazarus Mission astronauts sent through the wormhole ten years prior to the events of Interstellar. The Interstellar Text Adventure game, written by executive producer Jordan Goldberg, explores your fate on your mission to find another habitable planet.
