The Lego Movie is a huge hit so it was really just a matter of time before we started seeing people cosplaying as its minifigs. This is Nukaya who has turned herself into Wyldstyle. The outfit started with a men’s hoodie that she custom painted and then finished with a matching wig complete with pink and blue stripes and a little ponytail.

It turns out that one of the most sophisticated pieces of technology in the Marvel universe uses the same sort of software as a toy computer.
Yep, according to computer programmer John Graham-Cumming and his Tumblr “Source Code in Television and Films“, Tony Stark uses the same programming code that powers a Lego robotic toy for his specialized Iron Man suit.
Graham-Cumming spends a good chunk of his free time hunting through famous movies for scenes that depict programming codes. After doing some snooping through the latest Iron Man flicks, he saw that the code looked vaguely familiar.
What the crafty programmer discovered was pretty interesting. The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) confirmed his discovery, and posted the following on its Iron Man trivia page:
The code that appears on the computer screen at 34 minutes into the movie is a utility that downloads firmware into Lego robotic toy (called RCX). It may suggest that Tony Stark used this program to download firmware into his robotic suit.
Man, who knew that Lego toys could be so versatile? We should use them to power everything!

At first glance these might not seem practical, but they’d be perfect for gripping a steering wheel on cold mornings or a cup of coffee. What more could you want? Those who know how to knit can download the pattern from Carissa Knits.
