(the picture above is artists rendering of the robot and its maker from the 1900s)
So, I just read this article about how the Ottoman's sent a gift to the Japanese in the late 1800s. The gift was a clock which resembled a whirling dervish (almost at human size) which would sing the azan (islamic call to prayer) 5 times a day, spin, and it would walk forward and walk back to its original spot. Apparently, it was the first robot ever made in history, and some say, helped lead the Japanese towards a technological revolution. Click here to read the full article. Thanks Erdinc!

This game is absolute crack. If you're thinking unicorns, rainbows, and dolphins are gay you're totally right, they are. BUT! This game is completely awesome and it only requires Z for jump and X for dash.
Give it a try and attempt to beat my score of 50k for one wish(try). Hell, i'll even give you $10 if you can. Good Luck~
Thanks to everyone that played, John was the winner of this contest but I'm feeling another contest coming up next week so be ready !

Fede Alvarez is from Uruguay and he produced this short film. It cost only $300 to make and has some pretty cool special effects and is actually really interesting for only a 4 min video. Well anyway, after putting it on youtube he started getting emails from hollywood directors and he finally signed with sam Raimi, the guy who directed all the Spiderman movies for $30 mil. Thats right, he spent $300 and was given a $30 mil deal. Its crazy. The movie that they will be working on will be from scratch but will definitely be similar to the short film. BBC News
