Lego helmet reads comics for you

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2011

Do you love comics, but don’t particularly want to flex the brain muscles required to actually read them? Then suit up spaceman, because this helmet is for you. Jonathan Robson has designed this Lego minifigure-inspired helmet, just for you.

The helmet has volume control and even a page skipping button on the side. On the back, there’s even a port for plugging in a USB flash drive loaded with audio content. Sadly the helmet is designed just for kids, but if you have a tiny head then go for it.

Comics coming to the Nintendo Wii

Comics coming to the Nintendo WiiSettle down now. I didn’t mention Batman or Spiderman, now did I? A Japanese joint venture between several comic loving entities will be distributing digital comic books to the Nintendo Wii through the Internet. Again, settle down. The service will be available to those in Japan only.

In fact, the digital content delivery service has already begun, and they are working on being able to transfer the data to the DS Lite platform down the road. This means that it’s only a matter of time until we can get actual Marvel or DC comics delivered to our Wii. And that is the most awesomest thing ever. But for now, just settle down.

Marvel Comics on your cell phone

Marvel Comics on your cell?The time may be close at hand when you can peruse Marvel comics on your cell phone. The comics industry had to embrace it someday, sales being what they are. I’m just wondering how they are going to deal with such a small screen. They may just offer snippets that give you the whole story, or let you view a frame at a time. But are comics any good viewed in that way?

I mean, is that kind of severe eye strain worth finding out whether Spiderman beat his latest foe? Or if Wolverine finally bagged Jean Grey? A better bet might be to subscribe to Marvel’s online service that costs between $5 to $10 monthly. Still, anything that brings geeks together with comics is a good thing.
