Medium - Lego
Pieces - 200,000
Build Time - 600+ hours
Dimensions - 5ft high, 6ft wide

The Work

From the brilliant mind of New York artist Mike Doyle, comes Contact 1 the first in a series of grand scale LEGO works “celebrating extra terrestrial contact events, spiritual beings and unique worlds.” The towering world is the culmination of some 600 hours of work using 200,000 individual bricks and stands nearly 5 feet high by six feet wide. Marvel at its intricate LEGO beauty!

The City of Odan

With Contact 1, he’s built an imaginary city of near Minas Tirith-like scale, complete with pixelated towers, forests, and waterfalls. It’s called Odan, home to an enlightened species that evolved from us but dropped the lousy inter-species killing thing, and it is dedicated solely to the development of its inhabitants cultural and spiritual needs.

The 1st Cellphone - Motorola DynaTAC 8000X

Motorola DynaTAC 8000X -- 1983 


The DynaTAC was the first commercially available cellphone and the culmination of all the research engineer Martin Cooper had done since joining Motorola in 1954.

The phone resembled those the military used in the field. The svelte handset weighed 28 ounces and was 10 inches tall, not including the antenna nearly as long as the phone. It wasn't exactly something you could shove in a pocket or purse. Still, it wasn't attached to a car and you could walk around with it, so there was that. 

Such mobility wasn't cheap. The DynaTAC would dig a $4,000 hole into your bank account. But that didn't stop early adopters from diving into the swanky world of mobile calling. The phone had a cameo alongside Gordon Gekko in Wall Street and with ├╝ber-preppy Zack Morris on the teen drama Saved By the Bell.

The Facebook-Phone: Leaked Photos

9to5Google has released what it claims are leaked images of the new Facebook Home user interface that is rumored to be unveiled tomorrow morning at the social networking giant’s headquarters. As rumored, the phone is said to be manufactured by HTC, but it will apparently be named “First" rather than the previously reported "Myst."
The leaks show a sleek, clean-looking interface that seems to borrow some of its style from stock Android rather than HTC Sense’s UI. As 9to5Google reports, Facebook Home features a “minimal aesthetic” with a heavy focus on photography—likely because of Facebook’s photo-friendly integration with features like cover photos and customizable photo albums. 

Be sure to follow Ars Technica's liveblog tomorrow morning for the full scoop.

T-Mobile's New Strategy: Pros and Cons


T-Mobile USA

T-Mobile USA has revamped its pricing plans, the latest move in an industry that's still experimenting feverishly with various ways of luring customers and getting current ones to pay as much as possible. Here's how T-Mobile's gambit compares.

The most significant change is that T-Mobile is breaking the cost of the phone away from the monthly service fee. Instead, the company will sell the phone on an installment. It's making a big deal out of the fact that it will no longer have two-year service contracts, but it's replacing them with two-year financing contracts. To buy an iPhone 5 from T-Mobile, you'll be putting $100 down and then paying $20 per month for two years to pay off the phone. That's on top of service fees that start at $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and 500 megabytes of data. An additional $10 per month gives you another 2 gigabytes of data. Add $20 instead, and you get unlimited data. If you leave T-Mobile within the two-year period, you'll still be charged $20 a month until the two-year contract runs out.

Pros

T-Mobile's plans are generally cheaper than the competition. If you've paid off your phone, your monthly bill declines. You can pay off the phone early if you want, with no penalty. You can also buy "unlocked" phones, or bring them over from AT&T, and get a good deal on monthly service. T-Mobile's "4G" service is relatively fast — at least, faster than Sprint, in places where Sprint doesn't have LTE. T-Mobile also offers unlimited data service, for peace of mind.

Cons

T-Mobile's data network coverage is poor in rural areas. It's only now rolling out an "LTE" network, and it doesn't have access to the low frequencies where Verizon Wireless and AT&T run their wall-penetrating LTE networks. There's no option to share a data plan among many devices, but T-Mobile makes it relatively inexpensive to add a line to the plan: $10, which comes with 500 megabytes of data usage.

Bottom Line

The price over two years for a 16-gigabyte iPhone 5 with unlimited calling, unlimited texting and 2.5 gigabytes of data usage per month, excluding taxes, is $2,020.
