On December 28th 1974 the Fourth Doctor, brilliantly and memorably portrayed by Tom Baker, made his debut. Along with a delightfully odd sense of humor, a manic smile and, of course, his trademark scarf. A scarf that so captured the imagination of scifi fans around the world that it’s one of a handful of clothing items with its own fanbase dedicated to recreating the thing as accurately as possible.
During the early ’80s, the BBC regularly received letters from the public asking how they could get their own Whovian neckwear, and the then-new BBC Enterprises (the commercial arm of the company, now known as BBC Worldwide) responded in quite possibly the most BBC way possible – by providing instructions for knitting your own. A standard memo was prepared to respond to such queries. That memo was shared online by 93Fangshadow, and you can see it below. [click to continue…]

A team of researchers with the University of Bristol created a gauntlet that uses acoustic levitation to manipulate small objects. They’ve dubbed it the “Gauntlet of Levitation” or GauntLev for short. Catchy, right?
The GauntLev is part of a broader effort to create acoustic levitation devices that could, one day, help people work safely with hazardous materials. This effort includes another version that they have compared to the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. Read more after the break…

Kids come up with the darnedest crossovers.
Jeremy Marbler constructed this awesome cosplay costume for his six-year old daughter when she wanted to celebrate her favorite fandoms at once. Combining My Little Pony with Doctor Who, this awesome Rainbow Dash Dalek is adorable in a terrifying way. He notes:
My six year old daughter wanted another Doctor Who themed costume after her recent K9 cosplay and she picked a Dalek. As I was sketching the design, she was playing and yelled out “a My Little Pony Dalek!”
After shaking my head, I asked “A Rainbow Dash Dalek?”
“Yes!” she giggled… And then looked at me seriously and said “It’s gotta have wings.”
“Wings… So it’s twenty percent cooler?”
