Since it’s 2015, there’s been plenty of internet chatter about the future that was envisioned for this year in the time travel sequel Back to the Future Part II. While there have been plenty of technological developments that were once just dreams in the 1989 sequel, fans have still be disappointed that we still don’t have hoverboards.
We’ve had our desires teased with Funny or Die’s fake hoverboard demonstration video, and there have been more recent, legitimate developments with a company called Hendo (though their design requires a copper surface to work). And now another claim of hoverboard creation comes from car manufacturer Lexus with a project called Slide.

If for some reason you’ve seen Star Wars but you haven’t yet partaken of Mel Brooks‘ classic parody Spaceballs, it’s about time you fixed that. In classic Mel Brooks fashion, Spaceballs mocks everything about Star Wars with self-referenctial humor, fourth wall breaks, and jokes about sci-fi tropes and goofy characters like Dark Helmet. It’s a favorite among comedy fans and sci-fi fans alike.
And now there’s the chance to partake in wise Yogurt’s noble endeavor of merchandising. One fan at LEGO Ideas has crafted two custom LEGO sets that give two of the iconic spacecrafts from Spaceballs the building block treatment. You can help vote to make them a reality.

The 1956 film Forbidden Planet is one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time.

The latest is from Killian Eng. His take is a bit different than the others, concentrating less on the characters and more on the planet itself. It will be released June 17; check out the Killian Eng Forbidden Planet posters below. Read More »
