Brass Ballas, a group that creates movie reenactments inside the video game Grand Theft Auto V from developers Rockstar Games, have worked their magic on the famous train scene from the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall. The group has also posted a blooper reel that showcases just how frustrating getting the recreation correct was.
You can see how frustrating it was to get some good shots! If we fell off, we usually had to wait another 10 minutes for a train, and hope it didn’t go dark or rain!
LEGO aficionado Jason Allemann has created a working computer keyboard using LEGO bricks. The base of the keyboard consists of the inner components of a generic keyboard, but the rest of it was created out of LEGO bricks. Specifically, the axles and connectors come from LEGO Technic, while the rest of the superficial pieces are from a hodgepodge of sets. The whole thing is a bit less sturdy than a traditional keyboard, and flexes depending on the pressure used, but it works perfectly fine as a keyboard.
