Allen Pan, also known as WIZARD and JEDI MASTER Allen Pan, has used all of his jedi (read as electrical engineering) education to create this wonderment… this beauty… this WET dream come true for all nerdom EVERYWHERE! Allen Pan has created a real working light saber.
Ok… so the saber is more the size of a fencer’s foil, but it even makes the SOUND EFFECTS!!!
Check the build and a 3 min video HERE and wear a diaper just in case a little wee comes out. OR just don’t wear pants (that’s what I do!)
We’re just over a month away from the launch of The Force Awakens, and we couldn’t be more excited! Or, at least, we thought we couldn’t! A new trailer for the upcoming film has debuted in Japan, and it has revealed some interesting new scenes, and even more interesting sound clips!
Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments!
Yesterday, Tickets to ‘Starwars: The Force Awakens’ went on sale and immediately crashed numerous websites. Yours truly managed to snag an IMAX 3D showing on opening night Dec. 18th, 2015 (2 months out)! Shortly after, the trailer hit the interwebs and hit 200k views in a matter of 20 minutes. Today, it’s been viewed close to 13 MILLION times (10 of those are my contributions). The trailer is below if you haven’t yet watched it. Be prepare to get swept up in all the feels.
Look, we all know that video game movies generally leave something (or a few things) to be desired. But we here at BabbleOn5 think that they’re just an Iron Man (2008) away from taking off as Hollywood’s next big genre film.
Hopefully leading that charge is 2016’s Assassin’s Creed, starring X-Men actor Michael Fassbender. The dude killed it as a younger Magneto, and he’s proven time and time again that he is quite the talented actor.
Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch’s ancestor Aguilar. He certainly looks the part.
Assassin’s Creed has developed in to one of gamings top franchises over the years, creating some pretty fascinating characters along the way. However, Fassbender won’t be playing any of them. Instead, he’ll be playing an original character for the movies: Callum Lynch (doesn’t sound anywhere near as cool as Assassin’s Creed II’s Ezio Auditore).
Yahoo has a bit more on the subject, “Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.) Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”
Yahoo also noted that filming begins this coming Monday at locations that include: Malta, London, and Spain. Assassin’s Creed also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ariane Labed, and is directed by Justin Kurzel. The film will hit theaters on December 21st, 2016.

Did we learn NOTHING from the Matrix?
Cambridge’s Department of Engineering has built a ‘mother robot’ that has the ability to create, test, and improve her ‘baby robots’.

Remember a couple weeks ago when Babble reported on the performance enhancing drugs scandal of the eSport arena? Remember how it sounded riiiiidiculous? Well, it’s actually THIS serious. Check the vid for a really awesome explanation by @hingers… don’t get distracted by the aussie accent coming from his cute asian face though. LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.
But Kory Friesen, I thought you didn’t care! Why the retraction?!
The time has come for me to buy my own firefly class spaceship, assemble a rag tag group of people to become my space family, and go on great adventures to see the outer reaches of the universe AND to become the GREATEST SPACE PIRATE OF ALL TIME. And now that I can grow my own produce in space, food will never be a problem again.

So… there’s this….
Microsoft has announced that they will be focusing their investments on first party games (like Halo), rather than third party games (like Call of Duty). What does that mean? It means that Microsoft will be trying to develop a large, xbox exclusive, repertoire of games, so that you and I will HAVE to buy the Xbox ONE console in order to play them.
Hit the jump for more on the announcement and a video of some of the exclusive features of Xbox ONE.
AUGH! I loved the first Mirror’s Edge (something about an asian WOMAN being a kick ass protagonist of a video game makes me feel at home) and Catalyst looks even more heart pumpingly THRILLING! So, hey friends! Better get all your Mina time in NOW because in 7 months you won’t see ANY OF HER! Mina, you don’t have any friends. Ok… well… then… PROBLEM SOLVED YOU HEARTLESS BASTARD!
