The merging of two technologies can sometimes create something wonderful, in this case it is dot matrix printer the size of a pickup truck, that you can drive and print messages as you go. Could this be the future of road signage? What is the first easter egg in a game that you remember finding? Can you use an Apple II to control a V8? You can if the V8 is made of Lego.

All this plus the usual nonsense and the Community Question Of The Week.
