LEGO Avengers Helicarrier coming soon?

LEGO recently released a video for the LEGO Creator Detective’s Office & Barber Shop (10246) on YouTube. It is a beautiful set. But beside that, some sharp eyes fans notice something else. At the 8 seconds mark of the video, there is an image that seems to looks like the Avenger Helicarrier.

Can’t see it? It’s in the letter ‘G’.

Does that look like the front of the Avengers Helicarrier?

The Avengers Helicarrier was submitted to LEGO Ideas and received the required 10,000 supporters. Right now it is under the review stage. Could it be possible that the Helicarrier has been approved and we will be seeing a video of it soon? Well, your guess is as good as mine. LEGO Marvel Superheroes fans, keep your fingers crossed.

Not the most secured password

I was surfing YouTube recently when I stumble upon this video. It’s a video clip from Star Trek that says the most secure security password ever.

To be honest, a password like 173467321476C32789777643T732V73117888732476789764376 is rather secure. It is 52 characters long and will take a long time for computer to brute force that. But is it the most secured password? Hardly. Try remembering the password. It’s difficult. Most people will just end up writing this on a piece of paper. And we all know how this will end.

The way that we have been using password is wrong. A good password needs to be long and easy for the owner to remember. There is no need for uppercase and lowercase. No need for special characters. Just a long phrase that is easy for the owner to remember and difficult to brute force. Check out this XKCD comic and you’ll understand what I mean.

Of cos you are not supposed to change your password to be the same as the comic. All you need to do is to think of 4 to 6 random words and is long and easy for you to remember. Now that will be the most secured password.

Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch

Great Scott! Someone was hanging a clock in the toilet when he fell and hit his head on the sink. That’s when he came up with the idea of a Flux Capacitor Wristwatch. No joke. This Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is real and is available at ThinkGeek for US$49.99.

Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun and challenging. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit. It may look confusing, but is very easy to read. Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats. At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.

Will it time travel? Well, I guess you need to generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity and run 88 miles per hour for time travel to happen.

I don’t know about you. But this looks like the perfect Christmas present for Back To The Future fans like me. Definitely better than any smart watch in the market.
