Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Official Collection

This one was pretty high in my Stuff From the 80s That Urgently Needs the Lego Treatment list, almost tied with Mario and Donkey Kong.* At last, the Danish company has released a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set collection!

It’s going to have many sets, but the first one has been shown at New York Comic-Con: the $60 Shellraiser Street Chase, which includes a pizza truck and five mini figures. Among them, Donatello and Michelangelo. You will have to wait for Leonardo and Raphael in future sets—which kind of sucks.

LEGO The Cranky Cavetroll

So…Pippin knocks a skeleton down a well. Next thing you know a cave troll is smashing down the doors and attacking the Fellowship. An overreaction you say? Maybe. But you never saw WHY the troll was so upset, did you? Well, now you know why. Poor troll.

There are also two easter eggs for the highly observant out there! Who can spot Gollum, slinking in the shadows, and who can spot the Star Wars cameo? Comment below!

The music and many of the sound effects are property of New Line Cinema.

LEGO Turing Machine

This is a short documentary about the LEGO Turing Machine built by Jeroen van den Bos and Davy Landman at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), Amsterdam (Netherlands). They built it for CWI’s exposition “Turings Erfenis” in honor of the centenary of Alan Turing’s birth on 23 June 1912.

More on the LEGO Turing Machine here: legoturingmachine.org/

Alan Turing was a brilliant mathematician who helped define the theoretical model of the computer as we know it today. He was a visionary, one of the few people of his time who recognized the role the computer would play for humanity.

The Turing Machine (1936) is an adequate model of a computer. It can do anything the computers of today or tomorrow can do.
