NASA’s Z-1 Prototype Spacesuit and Portable Life Support System, produced for the space agency by David Clark company, which manufactures headsets, anti-G suits, and space suits, is white with fluorescent green stripes and features a large, dome helmet just like Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear. Read on… it’s probably not an accident.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the suit “is designed to take astronauts into long missions into deep space. It features a rear-entry port that gives galaxy-hopping space rangers an easy way to dock with shuttles and space stations without the need for an airlock … The Z-1 is a prototype, NASA stresses, and will be subject to further revisions before it’s actually put into use by the agency in 2017 — hopefully by which time the U.S. space program will be back in full swing.”

Perhaps not so coincidentally, Disney and NASA are working together to develop educational activities and exhibits centered around Buzz Lightyear’s fictional trip to live inside the International Space Station.  If Disney can’t revive interest in the Space Program, no one can!

It’s part of a program to increase kids’ interest in space travel and the sciences.

This Cellist’s Rendition Of The ‘Inspector Gadget’ Theme Song Is So Good!

You don’t need Go-Go-Gadget-Hearing-Aids to hear how cool this cover is.

There are a few theme songs that are instantly recognizable and one of them definitely belongs to Inspector Gadget. YouTuber, Samara Ginsberg, not only shared her cello composition but also played all eight parts needed to perform the cover perfectly. The sound of eight cellos working together enriches the cartoony tune of the original, making the cover feel more appropriate for someone like James Bond. Talk about an epic mashup idea!

Folding Phones Are Now A Thing! Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s really happening. Could the days of mocking people with flip phones be over? But wait – there’s more. This phone as SIX cameras — three on the back, two inside, and one in the front for when it’s folded. I can’t even count how many selfies that adds up to.

It’s almost two thousand bucks. For now. But it expands from nearly 5 inches as a phone to a 7 inch tablet. Will it make me breakfast???

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

MUST WATCH VIDEO: “How Spies Use Disguises” Is The Most Fascinating Video You’ll Watch All Day.

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
