This is the $ 12 laser-cut Millennium Falcon model sold by Strapya World. It comes as two sheets of flat metal, but with enough time and patience, you can turn it into a little little Millennium Falcon. With less time and patience you can turn it into accidentally stabbing yourself and bleeding. With zero time or patience you can throw the package away as soon as it arrives in the mail with an angry, “F*** it, I was just gonna screw it up anyways.”

Nokia Confirms The Flagship Lumia 925 For T-Mobile U.S: 4.5″ AMOLED Screen, Metal Edges, Extra Lens & New Camera Software
Fresh from last week’s Verizon Lumia device launch, Nokia has taken the wraps off a new smartphone in its Windows Phone-based Lumia range at an event in London today. The Lumia 925 is its first flagship for T-Mobile in the U.S. This means that following the Lumia 928 launch on Verizon, and factoring in Nokia’s initial launch of the Lumia 920 on AT&T last year, Nokia now has a flagship Windows Phone ranged on all three major U.S. carriers. Globally the Lumia 925 will be ranged with Vodafone in Europe, coming to markets including Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K. (priced at €469), and in China with China Mobile and China Unicom. The device will ship in June in Europe, with a U.S. launch slated for soon after.
The Windows Phone 8-based 4G Lumia 925 continues Nokia’s strategy of emphasising the camera smarts of its flagships Windows Phones, including PureView branding, Carl Zeiss optics and an 8.7MP lens with image stabilisation tech inside. But the camera hardware in the 925 is a little different to the 928 and 920, with one extra lens. This sixth lens improves photo performance in bright sunlight, according to Nokia, as well as sharing the low light performance abilities of its fellow flagships. In addition to that new camera hardware, the phone includes new software, called Smart Camera, that’s aimed at extending the photography experience by giving users new ways to capture and share photographs.
The camera software on the device includes a burst mode which allows up to 10 shots to be captured at a time. The software also has three new capture modes that take advantage of this burst feature, namely: Best Shot, for composing a composite shot from the best elements of several images; Action Shot for snapping a series of stills of action shots, such as sports, that can then be edited and shared as a sequence; and Motion Focus, a Lytro-style mode that allows the snapper to pick different elements to be in or out of focus after the shot has been taken. Nokia confirmed to TechCrunch that the latter featured is the first bit of software to make use of technology Nokia acquired when it bought imaging company Scalado last July.
“Whatever you do you can go back and edit again and again,” said Jo Harlow, head of Nokia’s smart devices unit — pictured above left, with SVP of product design chief Stefan Pannenbecker at the London launch. “The Nokia smart camera is our latest uniqie experience for our Nokia Lumia portfolio.”
The Smart Camera software is exclusive to the Lumia 925 initially but will be pushed out as an over-the-air update called Amber to Windows Phone 8-based Lumias in Q3, the company said. Nokia looks to be trying to bolster its efforts against Samsung here, which included a raft of new camera features on its flagship Galaxy S4 device, such as Dual-Shot and Drama Shot. The lack of Instagram for Windows Phone continues to hamper Nokia’s photo-focused efforts however, but also today it announced a partnership with Oggl, Hipstamatic’s new photo community app — noting that since Oggl has a relationship with Instagram, users will be able to access the latter service via that app.
Design wise, the Lumia 925 is the first Lumia device to include metallic trim. A silver aluminium band runs around its four edges, and doubles as the phone’s antenna — taking its cues from the iPhone’s design (but with “rigorous testing” to ensure no repeat of antennagate, according to Nokia). The mobile maker’s trademark polycarbonate clads the back of the device, so there’s a two-tone look and feel.
Nokia says the plastic back is designed to make it feel nicer and grippier in the hand. It may also be about keeping the weight down (to 139g), since heavy handsets is something Nokia has been criticised for. It certainly felt lightweight and slender during a brief hands on. Handset colour options are muted rather than the usual bold Lumia offerings, with black, white and grey options for the plastic back. Wireless charging shells, sold separately, can reintroduce the usual Lumia splashes of yellow, cyan and red.
Under the hood there’s a 1.5GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon chip, and 1GB of RAM. On board memory is 16GB (Vodafone will also get a 32GB variant) plus 7MB free cloud storage on Microsoft’s SkyDrive. The 4.5 inch AMOLED display has a resolution of 1280 x 768. Dimensions are 129 x 70.6 x 8.5mm. The 2000mAh battery is good for up to 12.8 hours of talk time on 3G, or up to 6.6 hours video playback, according to Nokia.
A ‘true PureView’ Windows Phone device — codenamed EOS — has been rumoured for several months, and the Lumia 925 looks to be that device. However it certainly does not include the 41MP sensor and pixel oversampling techniques featured in the Symbian-based 808 PureView. It seems unlikely that bona fide PureView technology will ever make it to Windows Phone, not least because it’s something of a camera pro curiosity, rather than a consumer-friendly mainstream feature. Rather Nokia is extending the PureView branding — to associate it with a range of camera-centric features, not just that original huge sensor.
Harlow closed the presentation by hinting at further new device launches from Nokia “later this summer”. “I can’t wait to see you later this summer when we will continue to bring new innovation and new experiences to our Lumia portfolio,” she said.
Nokia announced its latest Lumia 928 handset on Friday, but the company has more planned for an event in London next week. On Sunday, Nokia teased part of this announcement during a commercial break on British TV. The short promo shows the rear of a device with a hump around the large camera lens and an accompanying flash arrangement. “More than your eyes can see,” reads the accompany text between various images of the device.
Nokia’s teaser looks a lot like the leaked photos of its aluminum “Catwalk” device, which The Verge understands are genuine images of an upcoming Nokia flagship. The hump and placement of the flash is identical and the teaser appears to show a device with a metal exterior. However, Nokia is also preparing a 4…
IBM is worried that we’re reaching the end of the road for CMOS technology — that we need new materials beyond silicon to keep the power draw down in chips as their performance goes up. It may keep future circuitry extra-lean through a new technique that puts a metal oxide in silicon’s place and allows for non-volatile processors and memory. By running ionized liquid electrolytes in currents through the oxide, the company can switch that oxide from an insulator to a conductor (and vice versa) that can reliably maintain its state, even when there’s no power. The trick would let a logic gate or switch kick into action only when there’s an event, rather than needing constant jolts of electricity — and without the pressure or temperature changes that had ruled out metal oxides for chips in the past. We’re still far from replacing silicon with more efficient oxides given the early state of IBM’s work, but having a consistent method is an important first step.

A prospector in Victoria, Australia, unearthed a 177oz (~ 11-lb) gold nugget he discovered utilizing absolutely nothing but a metal detector (oh yeah? Well I found gold making use of nothing however a pan and my very own 2 eyes!). The gold itself is worth just under $ 300,000 by weight, however the piece will likely be offered for substantially more due to it’s one-of-a-kind nature. Guy, why could not I have been the one to discover a big gold nugget? You understand exactly how much different my life would be like if that had been me? “The specific however with a replica of the golden idol from ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’ on your mantle?” Haha, yeah. Possibly break down and get myself a microwave too.

This is a Solid Snake balloon animal sculpture. You might argue he’s not actually a balloon ANIMAL, but you’d be wrong, because he’s a snake. Also, I’m not sure what the hell that guy from the carnival is doing there but he let goat-boy escape again there’s going to be hell to pay.
Thanks to ChaosLes, who loves chaos so much sometimes he runs through a crowd as fast as he can yelling, “TIGER ON THE LOOSE!”

Note: Please, try to keep the metal metal band jokes to a minimum.
This is a video of the robotic band Compressorhead practicing in the garage of some human they likely killed. Unfortunately (or is it?), as somebody pointed out in the video’s comments, you can really only hear the drums. You know why? Because robotic sound guys SUCK. Consider that a heads up for any of you bands out there trying to save a couple bucks by hiring a robot — you want a HUMAN sound guy. The longer the ponytail the better.
Hit the jump for the brand practice in action. Admittedly, I did like the little high-hat robot.
Even more than a few of us have had that moment of panic when our earphone cords catch on a things and cut the listening short– often permanently. Specialists at North Carolina State College could help reduce those minor musical disasters with wiring that extends up to eight times its normal length. The method fills an elastic polymer tube with a liquid gallium and indium alloy that provides the electrical power. By keeping the materials separate, unlike numerous previous efforts, the option guarantees the very best of both globes: the conduction we require, and the tolerance for tugs that we want. NC State already has an eye on stretchable headphone cords, as you’ll see in the video after the break, but it additionally sees benefits for electronic textiles that might endure additional abuse. As long as the group can at some point address a trouble with leakage when there’s a complete break, we’ll be glad sufficient to leave among our typical audio problems in the past.
