If you have $5,700 you can own your very own Dalek, made to the same specifications as the actual Daleks made by the BBC’s prop department. (via Geekologie)

  • The Wall Street Journal catches up with 18-year-old actor Alexander Gould, best known for two very different roles—Weeds‘ Shane Botwin and Finding Nemo‘s eponymous adorable clownfish—in advance of Finding Nemo 3-D‘s release. (via The Wall Street Journal)

 

Aw, you’re welcome, Milla. (via Twitter)

  • Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, consider yourself officially announced. The third chapter in Bioware’s award-winning RPG franchise will be out in late 2013, which is still over a year sooner than Avengers 2. (Sorry.) (via The Daily Blam!)

Scientists name a new type of wasp after Lady Gaga. Just what it says on the tin. (via Death and Taxes)

  • Chris Evans is “dreading” getting back into Captain America’s spandex when Captain America 2: Winter Soldier starts filming in March—but worry not, it’s just the bulking up he needs to do beforehand that he’s not looking forward to. “It’s months and months of lifting heavy stuff… It’s such a commitment, top-to-bottom, it’s not just lifting, sleep is important, your diet is important.” Can’t say we blame ya, Chris.

    I had a later GRiD creation, an 8086-based portable with wired stylus touchscreen and no keyboard. It’s design was great, but had no storage (I think you were meant to drop stuff off to another unit via a serial connection, but I only had the pad so just treated it like an electronic etch-a-sketch).
