5 geeky links I totally have to share

Microsoft: "You’ve got questions. We’ve got dancing paperclips."

Next to no intro from me today BECAUSE REASONS. Reasons that are all to do with the links. Link goodness. Link love. Linky McSlinky. (It's like I always have to go that one sentence too far that makes it all suddenly so absurd). I'm thinking of making this a regular weekly post where I round up geeky links I've seen that I feel are worth sharing. Or something. Hopefully, you find a gem or two. Happy weekend, people!

John Scalzi and Wil Wheaton perform a "Redshirts" reading
It's Wil Wheaton. Let me repeat this: Wil. Wheaton. Is there anything he does that I don't adore times infinity?

Table looks like gigantic iPhone, works as gigantic iPhone display
You guys, you guys! Seriously, it's a table that is shaped like a gimongous iPhone. You think I'm kidding, right? Check it out. It has the screen, the buttons. And I'm like OHMYGAWSH. So...it doesn't work as an iPhone, because OBVIOUSLY, but it's still pretty cool all the same :) Also, I WANT FIVE OF THEM. As a bonus, I'm introducing you to GeekoSystem's website because LURVE. I know, right? You're welcome!

Watch this: kids from 1995 convince you to get on the internet
"Hey, why should I be on the internet?"

Spooky little prophetic kids! They tell you that by the time they're in college the internet will be their phone, shopping centre, job...and provide recipes for catfood cupcakes. So there you go!

Visit Mars and take a tour of the Gale crater, right now, with this interactive panorama
Me to friend: "So, what did you do today?"
Friend: "Well..."
Me to friend: "Totally doesn't matter because I went sightseeing on Mars. On Mars. Did I say that? Because, you know, MARS!"

In a virtual sense, that is :) And, as a bonus: Curiosity Martian landing point named after Ray Bradbury.

Shapeshifting furniture
FURNITURE PORN! And not just ANY kind of furniture porn, but SHAPESHIFTING FURNITURE! And no, don't look at me like that, I'm not talking about some kind of weird paranormal romance novel where shapeshifters do strange and nefarious things on couches. This is bigger than couches *scoffs* Furniture. That. Shapeshifts. GAH.
