I like that he has a boombox that is himself.
It’s still weird to me that Bumblebee is sometimes kind of a badass in Prime, because he was such a jackwagon in G1.
weirdest anonymous ask.

AH! Counter rotating blades! I always wondered how this thing didn’t just spin out of control without a tail blade!!

Question with 2 notes
Anonymous asked: I'm conflicted about drones. How do you feel about them, if you don't mind me asking.
I’m assuming you mean robotic aircraft, and not, for example, male bees? Hahaha.
I guess I feel kind of conflicted about them, too. On the one hand, there are a lot of shady issues with civilian deaths and accountability and things like that. On the other hand… they’re really cool?
(Like, seriously? I’m waiting for the first drone-on-drone dogfights. That is going to be weird and amazing, when it happens. And probably kind of scary.)
For better or worse, technology has been advancing more and more rapidly during the past several decades. This has had, and is going to have, some profound (and often kind of screwed-up) effects on society and the way the world works. We’ve found ourselves in possession of an advanced technology that has the potential to be a powerful tool for science, security, and on the battlefield. But it’s a tool that often carries with it heavy moral and ethical dilemmas. And the problem is: We can’t un-invent this. We can’t say, “I can’t deal with this, let’s just all agree not to build or use drones anymore.” So it’s just going to have to be something that society has some indigestion about for awhile.
I realize that might be kind of a dispassionate way to look at it, but it is how I feel.

Mike Pelletier: Lucy Skull
“In 2011 I was invited to create a piece for an exhibition called “Ctrl-Z” curated by 3d artistEric Van Straaten. This was a group exhibition of artworks created by various 3d printing processes.
The model of the skull was generated from a friend’s dental tomography scan. The form of the object was created by creating an array of copies of the skull, where each successive copy of the skull is scaled, rotated, and moved. The skull starts at life size at the front and ends up rotated 180 degrees and two times larger than life at the back.”
