Here're a couple of things that I found that might be of interest.
First up, a toy that apparently uses brain waves to manipulate a ball in a tower. Not surprisingly, it's a Star Wars themed toy (a "Force" trainer). Jedi mind tricks ahoy.
Next up, is Sir Terry Pratchett. That's right, he's been knighted.
Leekeworld's a BJD company and they're holding a drawing contest. Yay! I'll enter even though I highly doubt I'll win anything, what with all the competition out there. Plus colour pencils don't look as good as paints or CG, and dont seem to transfer well onto the computer. Or I really don't know how to colour and scan/edit ._.
Anyway, here're the contest rules. No idea what exactly the prize is going to be, however.
