Friday Links!

From Griffin Cheng, and this is fascinating: 'Rogue planet' spotted 100 light-years away. Also, and this is a must for film buffs, it's Terminator 2’s T-1000 Wasn’t All Computer Graphics .

If you like Louis C.K. (and even if you don't), this is one of the funniest bits he's ever done, and a great satire of his own show: Abe Lincoln.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is incredible: voxeljet builds Aston Martin models for James Bond film Skyfall. That's right--3D printing. This next story is bizarre (and I wonder if it can ever be confirmed): Vegetative patient Scott Routley says 'I'm not in pain'. One more, and it's stunning: The Belfast Peace Walls.

From Steven Davis, and this is fantastic: Robotic puppetry at its finest: the animatronic creations of Gustav Hoegen.

From Yacine Salmi, and this is a terrific idea: Teaching for Tomorrow: Flipped Learning.

From Francis Cermak, and there are a ton of new disclosures in this story: Revolution: The story of Wii.

From Robb, and this is quite amazing: Truly hairy mid-life crises: chimps and orangs get them too.

Ever wanted to see a human Rube Goldberg machine? Now's your chance: The Athlete Machine - Red Bull Kluge.
