No one at Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop does anything in halves. Ever. Even former Mythbuster Adam Savage was near-speechless after a recent visit to the studio to meet sculptor Johnny Fraser-Allen and the enormous project he's undertaken: building a room-sized, fully sculpted replica of the Labyrinth board game we saw last year.

After some setbacks — including, but not limited to, an explosion in September — SpaceX has launched a Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
"If you're going to live in a storage unit, you're going to need to be invisible as you can possibly be," the man in the video tells us. And he would know. According to a spokesman for the company, U-Haul kicked the YouTuber known as 007craft out of his home before his how to live in a storage locker video went viral this week.
There's a bit of crossover when it comes to the lexicons of cameras and weapons (aiming, shooting, etc.) so it's no surprise that someone would be inspired to find a way to combine them. Photographer and artist Jason Siegel decided his take would be a literal fusion of familiar camera components to create fake guns, explosive and other wartime paraphernalia as part of his "Shoot Portraits, Not People" exhibit.
Anyone remember Markforged's Metal One carbon fibre 3D printer? Turns out the company was onto something — it's just come out with a new model, the Metal X, which uses Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) to pump out metal components.
Video: Drop a couple of M&M's in a petri dish filled with water, point a Sony A7R M2 camera at the experiment capturing a 4K timelapse, and what you get is some remarkably beautiful footage of the colourful candy coating melting away. Without the "M" stamped on each candy, you would almost assume this was footage from by a telescope peering deep into space.
Video: Thank you science. Not only for giving order to this wild world but also looking damn good while you're doing it. Here's stunning microscopic footage of the growth of silver and lead that's generated during metal displacement. Seeing the contrast between the white from the silver and the black from the lead is really dramatic, plus the structures that get created are beautiful.
Video: That's a bit of a tumble, ain't it? Watch as this crew member gets blown away on the flight deck after the EA-6B Prowler took off. It's pretty scary, especially since he gets blown pretty damn close to the jet blast defector (and that he's on an aircraft carrier), but he manages to regain his bearings and even give a little celebration after getting tossed the hell around.
Former Mythbusters' star Adam Savage is a self-described "superfan" of The Expanse, Syfy's critically acclaimed sci-fi spectacle. As the show gets ready for season 2, Savage himself hosted a 20-minute expansive look into the space opera, which is available to watch for free online. If you haven't watched any of the show, this will definitely help you catch up.
If by some force of The Force you've avoided spoilers for what Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about, well you might want to avoid this latest peek. The extended version of the teaser released last week basically lays out the entire plot. It's definitely a change of pace from The Force Awakens, which kept us largely in the dark until opening day.
Ever since Apple dropped its latest MacBook Pro with a cool but mostly unnecessary Touch Bar, programmers have been jumping at the chance to make cool but mostly unnecessary apps to run on it. This new one does not break from that tradition but it does turn your MacBook Pro into Kitt from Knight Rider.
