This is a blatant advertisement, but it’s still hilarious.
This incredible dinosaur costume scares and excited a group of mixed-age kids in Sydney, Australia. Why does that part of the world have such a knack for creature design? Their neighbors in New Zealand, WETA Workshop, are responsible for designing and creating creatures and props for District 9, King Kong, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Avatar, Hellboy, and more. Pretty good for a bunch of sheep herders.
UPDATE: One of our commenters has let us know that this was created by a company called Creature Technology Company and they’re put on tour by Global Creatures. WETA is not involved.
The Dutch government is attempting to pass a new law that will make it illegal to download pirated content. Up until now, it has only be illegal to share or to upload pirated files. This change would be difficult to enforce. It’s unclear what the consequences will be, but this could be a milestone in the war against piracy. Do you think this will be the end of piracy as we know it? Or will piracy evolve again and stay a few steps ahead of the government? Despite a more tech-savvy government, I think the safe bet is still the latter.
