Couple Build Castle In Their Backyard

“It’s amazing the kind of things people create in their backyards. Just a few days ago we posted about the stunning Four Seasons Garden, and the impressive replica of the Golden Gate Bridge built by Larry Richardson, and let’s not forget the backyard Titanic we featured a while back. Today, I found some photos of a colorful castle like the one you usually see in children’s fairy tale books, and learned it was actually built by a retired bricklayer, right in his own backyard, in the German town of Dudweiler. The 76-year-old castle enthusiast spent 37 years building his masterpiece out of stones, bricks and thousands of bags of cement.” w/ photos

3D Printed Heads

“…by taking advantage of some incredible Tron-like technology, now you can. Best of all, you won’t need to race a light-powered light-motorcycle across a light-grid, being chased by an evil computer program of light (while Daft Punk plays in the background). Phew, that’s a relief. The very same incredibly detailed 3D Printed Heads that are used on our Personalized Superheroes, these noggins utilize a remarkable 3D mapping and modelling process that molds a to-scale head from just a couple of photos. It’s just like being in a sci-fi film, seriously.” w/ photos
