The Finest Madiba Tribute You'll Ever See. Hmm...

Apparently this aired on SA's Got Talent over a year ago. Her name? Botlhale Boikanyo. She's 11. Well, 12 now. Amazing performance. I'm sure Madiba would be proud. 
 

Veronica Mars Official Trailer. Hmm...

Veronica Mars fans rejoice! The movie is finally finished and will be out March 14th. *air punch to you and to Kickstarter for making it all happen.
  

A Kid's Book That Lets You Print Its 3D Characters. Hmm...

Leo The Maker Prince, is a new kid's book that tells the story of Carla, a boring accountant who always wanted to be an artist. She then meets Leo, a 3D-printing robot, and together, they bring her creations to life. Cool storyline. But here's the kicker, All the characters and objects in the book can be downloaded from Thingiverse, and printed with a 3D-printer at home or through a 3D-printing service. Bringing kids together with the endless possibilities of new technology. How awesome? 
 

Because Caturday. Hmm...

 

Beer Lives. Hmm...

Every January, one of my favourite craft brewers, Sierra Nevada, releases their Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale. They've been doing this since 1983 and to mark the occasion this year, they've released this stop-motion vid of the beer coming to life while fermenting over six days. How awesome? Well, to beer lovers like me it's awesome anyway. Pity we can't get the beer here in SA. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, Sierra Nevada... (cough)
