Forward Bias

This week's theme: Fantasy bleeds into reality

1. More than Meets the Eye: Some guys built a real Transformer out of a Citroen. Seriously. There's video.

2. Bond. James Bond. Well, Oddjob actually, but who would have thought he'd be hiding in an iPhone? Leave it to the folks at SemiSerious to figure that out.

3. I can't find my Second Life Passport! It's gotta be in my Second Life office. No wait, could it be in that Second Life cardboard box in my Second Life basement? I just hope I don't have to go to the Second Life Embassy and stand in Second Life line for two Second Life hours to get a new one.

4. The "fairly realistic" Flying car is back. Again.

(hat tip: Danger Room.)
