Whether as a kid or full grown adult watching the Michael Bay movies, a lot of us have wanted a Transformer of our very own. It’s no wonder. The Transformers are huge, both literally and figuratively. They’ve survived over twenty years. A lot of our attics are full of old Transformer toys, comics, and tapes of the TV show. Anyone who didn’t want to be a Ninja Turtle, Jem, She-Ra, or Spider-Man either wanted a Transformer as a best friend or wanted to be a Transformer (kids have some strange priorities). Well, we’re all grown up now and the future isn’t quite as advanced as we wanted. We don’t have working rocket boots and none of us did become superheroes, but one man really has put together a Transformer of his own!
LEGO aficionado and artist Julius von Brunk may have created a mouth-full of nostalgia. What he has dubbed as the “Domaster” is a LEGO-made art piece that’s disguised as a classic first generation Game Boy, but that wasn’t enough. With a few creative snaps, the piece is--wait for it--transformed into a Nintendobot, an awesome take on the Transformers of the same generation. It’s the Turducken of fond late 80s and early 90s memories and an amazing modification to some regular LEGO pieces.
Anyone who has watched an episode of Big Bang Theory has likely noticed the detail and thought that was put into designing the set for Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment.

Here is a list of our ten favorite items that without a doubt could be part of the Big Bang Theory's set.
Facebook hasn’t exactly been a helping hand in keeping people smart on the internet. Status updates, game invites, and being tagged in embarrassing pictures doesn’t do much for the learning process. Robots given their own social network, however, can apparently learn a lot, according to Carlos Asmat, the project coordinator for MyRobots.com. The project aims to see what different types of robots or even household objects can learn or effectively communicate to one another and their owners by updating their statuses.
