We already knew Lego’s new Porsche 911 GT3 RS Technic set weighed in at a whopping 2,704 pieces, and measures almost two feet long when fully constructed. But the complex build takes so long that even an accelerated timelapse video of it being assembled is still over 25 minutes. But it’s not like you have anything…
Lego just officially confirmed that its massive 2,704-piece Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set will be available on June 1 for the hefty sum of $300. Originally teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair wearing dazzle camo to hide its curves and final design, the creation is quite simply a work of art.
With the breakneck speed at which new DSLRs are released, photography seems to have traded a bit of its soul for the pursuit of ever more megapixels. So, Carl-Frederic Salicath of Norway has taken a step back from the digital revolution and has built his own working retro 120mm-film camera. Here's how.

It barely makes a sound as it claws its way across the floor, aside from the slight hiss of the motor that drives this…
Here's a tight piece of Lego machinery, a machine that knits stuff. It'll knit you a scarf, some knickers, or anything it damn well pleases.
