SWTOR Meets PS4 – Cool Skin

When you love SWTOR so much you have to decorate your other gaming gear in it… this is a really cool PS4 skin/cover. This was a custom design so you won’t see this skin just anywhere and that’s one thing we love about it. We know there are going to be many crying about how SWTOR is not a console game but really, this is just a big fan of SWTOR decorating something else they also like with images from SWTOR. I say it works! It;s always great to see the many ways fans and players get creative with their art and designs, like the story of the SWTOR cell phone cover we brought you awhile back. If you’re really into SWTOR art, you might like the Fan Art section of the official SWTOR forums. There’s even a SWTOR tattoo thread, although it hasn’t really taken off much yet. You’ll…

Speculative Documentary: Space Wars

Last week I wrote about our plans to put up a weekly column on more nerdy stuff, that is not really part of the Star Wars universe.  We still don’t know what to call it, but the plan is to post documentaries, images or articles, on space and speculative discussion on future technology. Last week i promised we will post something new each Saturday, and already I broke my promise. I have been out almost all weekend, but now I am here, and here is a new documentary from National Geographic. This one is called Space Wars, and is part of the “the universe” series. This one was aired back in 2009 and has scientist speculate on future space weaponry and battle tactics. So far no country has put weapons into space but they can shoot down satellites. If weapons do become part of space, how will they work, how effective will…

Last week we posted a story about the images carried by the spacecraft Voyager. This was so well received by you – our readers – getting more then 300 likes on Facebook. Therefor  we thought we will follow up on it, and start a new column on this more nerdy stuff, that is not really part of the Star Wars universe.  We don’t know what to call it yet, but the plan is to post documentaries, images or articles, on space and speculative discussion on future technology. This first video we are posting is named “Evacuate Earth”.

The documentary goes into the technical and social complications of building an Ark to save humanity and other Earth life, and moving them…

The pictures on the spacecraft Voyager. If it is discovered by someone else in the universe, this is what they will know of humanity

This has nothing to do with Star Wars, Yet… It has it has everything to do with Star Wars. These are the pictures that were put on the voyager spacecraft. If the human race manages to kill itself, this is the only thing other life in the universe will be know about us. This would be the imprint we leave on the entire universe. Statement: This voyager spacecraft was constructed by the United States of America. We are a community of 240 million human beings among the more than 4 billion who inhabit the planet earth. We human beings are still divided into nation states, but these states are rapidly becoming a single global civilization. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations. This record represents our hope and our…

Wife Makes Husband Cool SWTOR Phone Cover

Do you want to show your love of SWTOR outside the game? There are many options for flair these days, including great SWTOR t-shirts and accessories. But one woman make a very unique SWTOR phone cover for her husband and he took to the Internet to show it off. It’s basically a vinyl sticker which means it is also removable and you could make (or purchase) different designs and switch them out when you need something new. She used an electronic craft cutting machine. Then she copied an image of the symbol into the software and traced it, then cut it out of vinyl. It only takes a few minutes and then you’re ready to apply to the phone. So what do you think of it? Pretty cool design and simple idea? Would you try one yourself or would you use one if you could buy it?
