Starting off, we have the time when the internet exploded. Why did it explode? Well, a real astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield, currently living and working aboard the ISS, had a twitter conversation with a Star Trek Captain, William Shatner. It was glorious (CyberBuzz). Better remove that red shirt soon!
Sticking with a science and science fiction theme, we have the 20 worst science and technology errors in films (Telegraph). It’s by no means an exhaustive list (considering it’s from 2009), but it’s pretty thorough. If Prometheus had been around then, that would definitely be on the list.
3D printing time! Over at MAKE, they have a great list of the best 3D printed objects in 2012. What a list it is! A guitar, a beautiful skull, a snowflake, and a frickin’ TRANSFORMING ROBOT! Just… amazing. 3D printing can only get better this year.
