Things We Saw Today: Rubik’s Cubes + Robot Love = D’aww

Or would that be Things We D'aww Today?

Joe Penna (aka MysteryGuitarMan) must be some kind of genius, because he solved nearly 1300 Rubik’s Cubes about 1000 times to create this ridiculously adorable animated video. It’s about a robot falling in love, and it’s got a super cute chiptune soundtrack that seriously brightened up my day. Hats (or antennae?) off to him and Jeff Schweikart who masterfully handled the animation. (via The Verge)


  • Artist Orlando Arocena has a limited run of these fantastic Marvel Civil War prints featuring Iron Man and Captain America. Move quick, there’s only 40 of ’em up. (via GeekAlerts)
  • With rumors of an Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Cats revival on Broadway, I’d like to humbly submit this for consideration as a new showstopper.
  • One theater in Queens, New York has been open around the clock since Furious 7 opened on Thursday night. We reviewed Furious 7 on Tuesday, and I guess there are a ton more people who would totally Furious again. And again. And again.

In case you weren’t aware, today is Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday. I’ll be honest, I spent a while thinking about what to say, but these just describe him so much better than I ever could.




Happy birthday, you.
