Hello Sweetie

The Prop Replica of River Song’s Final Sonic Screwdriver You Can Never Have

Would you like a replica of River Song’s sonic screwdriver from Silence in the Library, built by Doctor Who‘s prop master, complete with blinking neural relay containing the essence of River Song? Well, too bad. This one costs $3500 and there are only going to be fifteen of them. Right now you can sign up on a waiting list for the preorders on Quantum Mechanix. So, come on and look at more pictures of it to rub salt in that wound you didn’t know you had until right now.

Comic-Con: While You Were Sleeping

So none of us could make it to the San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that won’t stop us from obsessively checking Twitter for the latest announcements, because, you know, that’s an entirely healthy to deal with not being there in person, right? Right? Well, just in case you’re not trying to live vicariously through Comic-Con attendees tweets for the next few days, here’s a round-up of some of the best announcements from yesterday. Hit the jump for info on Stephanie Meyer’s The Host, details on the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and even how to acquire your very own Aperture Laboratories jumpsuit!

Okay You Primitive Screwheads

Someone Has Invented The Sonic Screwdriver From Doctor Who (What?!?)

I’m getting weird feelings. Like foresight into a massive time paradox, the result of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe. The cause? Scientists taking ideas from science fiction in order to create real devices which will somehow go on to change how fiction writers from the past came up with ideas for no-yet-invented sci-fi devices. (Mark my words, that will be a movie one day). Scientists at the University of Dundee in the UK have created a device that uses ultrasound waves to turn object. In other words, screw them. In even more words, OH MY GOD THEY’VE MADE A SONIC SCREWDRIVER.

Sonic Screwdriver Scarves And Other Doctor Who Knits

I’m a big fan of alliteration so these Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Scarves get bonus points in my book. (They already had a ton for being DW creations.) Etsy user MyAlterKnits created both the 9/10th and 11th Doctor versions but also has a few other related items in her shop. Take a look.

Another Things Sonic Screwdrivers Can Do: Ruin Action Movies [Video]

Would Will Smith have benefitted from the abilities of a sonic screwdriver in Bad Boys 2? Totally! Would it have made for the most unsuspenseful action franchise that ever existed! Yes, probably. In fact, the sonic screwdriver pretty much blows Earthly technology and weaponry out of the water. And that is why Doctor Who has aliens in it.

(Also worth noting: This was produced by Lumberjack Films, the guys behind White Luke Cage!)
