Link Round-Up: IronFist


Binged Ironfist this weekend not expecting much after all the critical reviews.  The plot wasn't as intense as Daredevil, a lot of plot points were unintentionally hilarious, and the fight scenes were a bit lackluster.  However, the series beat the hell out of the majority of small screen comic series.  I was pleasantly surprised.

In 2011, New York artist Warren King created an incredible full suit of knight armor for a 6-year-old using cardboard, paint, hot glue, rubber bands, and velcro. Warren shared his entire DIY process on Flickr.

The top comment on Reddit suggests "Ikea should print the parts of this on the boxes children's furniture comes in." I whole-heartedly agree. Print a useful pattern on the interior of all those furniture boxes so that customers get some use from the cardboard before it goes into the garbage.
