A Russian tank manufacturer has unveiled a new tram design that it plans to start mass-producing in 2015. These beautiful pieces of engineering will hold 190 to 270 passengers and will be able to traverse on even the older, worn out Russian tram tracks.
bestnatesmithever: zerostatereflex: Tangible Media - MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely, ”Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning.”
This might surprise some of you, possibly not, but I would have to say that my favorite character in this film was definitely Blink. Her role was small, and I think she only had one line, but she was still ridiculously awesome. Bingbing Fan’s makeup and costume are beautiful, and the portrayal of her powers are more intense and badass than I could have ever imagined. Although it is never specifically referenced, after watching this film the second time, I realized just how smart Blink must be in geometry and strategic planning in order to be able to open portals in such a way that allows her teammates and herself to attack, escape, or avoid a Sentinel in a moment. She is even able to make Sentinels attack themselves! CRAZY!
Although I know it is not very likely, given Blink’s role in the Age of Apocalypse and given that Apocalypse is her ancestor, I am hoping that Bingbing Fan will return as Blink for the upcoming film, X-men: Apocalypse. Now that we know how fantastic and useful her powers are, I would like to get know her character.
