Given recent events: what a week! (I could have put that for every week I guess.)

But we made it to Friday.

So: here are some links!

[Lego] Building Guides: Technology

[Lego] Building Guides: Technology

“Feeling nostalgic? You’ll find building guides for my latest Lego® retro-tech models on this page. Just click the desired model to download the building guide as PDF.”

There are some incredible works here. Retro 1970s desk with a TRS-80 terminal? Check. Commodore 64? (or Vic-20?) Check.

All created using Lego. Crazy!

“L’ARCHITECTURE DU MOYEN-ORIENT [1930-1990]”

(Architecture of the Middle-East) (i.e.: Before digital cameras. 🙂 )

A tumblr gallery with (unfortunately) no further details, but the imagery and the structures are just lovely.

An in-browser, JavaScript powered build of the original SimCity game!

I used to love this game (on a Mac II back in 1991.)

This is pretty similar. Really well done.

Bonus Link!

Yoshitoshi Kanemaki’s Hand Carved Oddities.

Yoshitoshi Kanemaki’s Hand Carved Oddities.

Sculptor and artist Yoshitoshi Kanemaki, from Chiba, Japan, hand carves miraculously surreal “glitch art” sculptures that are absolutely jaw-dropping. Really well done.

These have been your Friday Links!

Have a great weekend everybody.
