How Long Would Luke Survive in a Tauntaun?

Posted by LiveFor on January 1, 2010

I can’t honestly say that I ever wondered how long Luke would live when Han put him in the corpse of his Tauntaun on Hoth. However, Wolf Gnards (cool name. Monster Squad inspired if I guess correctly) have put some thought to it.

In a normal environment, a carcass gets cold in 8 to 36 hours losing an average rate of 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit per hour. However, the ice world of Hoth is not an average environment. The Star Wars database lists that Hoth reaches nightly temperatures of -60 F. In a frigid, sub-zero environment, body heat can be lost almost 32 times faster. This means a Tauntaun’s body heat could drop almost 51.2 F every hour. Considering that Han Solo’s Tauntaun died of severe hypothermia even before it was cut open with Luke’s light saber, one could assume it’s core body temperature was already well below normal. The problem for Luke is if the Tauntaun’s body temperature reaches freezing point those once toasty guts, blood, and assorted alien goo, will in fact become a frozen coffin. If the Tauntaun died of cardiac arrest due to hypothermia with an average body temperature of 75 F (23 C), and if Tauntaun blood freezes at 28.4 F (-2 C), then Han has roughly 56 minutes to set up a shelter before Luke once again is in danger of losing his life in the barren wasteland of Hoth.

Does that sound feasible to you? You could always make your own Tauntaun costume or Tauntaun wedding cake.

Star Wars Zombies

Posted by LiveFor on December 7, 2009


These brilliant Zombie Wars posters that mash up the classic Star Wars posters with zombies are by artist Matt Busch.

Still not sure which one is my favourite, but always good to see a young undead Anakin as that would account for the performance in the three prequels.

I do like the skeletal Jango Fett.

Use the Force…for real…or not…depends on your Midi-chlorians count (Damn you Lucas for confusing us)

Posted by LiveFor on January 8, 2009

USA Today have the news on this new toy which will probably be really crap and is basically a load of ping pong balls and a fan!

The Force Trainer (expected to be priced at $90 to $100) comes with a
headset that uses brain waves to allow players to manipulate a sphere within a
clear 10-inch-tall training tower, analogous to Yoda and Luke Skywalker’s
abilities in the Star Wars films.


In the Force Trainer, a wireless headset reads your brain activity, in
a simplified version of EEG medical tests, and the circuitry translates it to
physical action. If you focus well enough, the training sphere, which looks like
a ping-pong ball, will rise in the tower.


A state of deep concentration is needed to achieve a Force-full
effect. “When you concentrate, it activates the training remote,” says Frank
Adler of toymaker Uncle Milton Industries, which is creating the Trainer. “There
is a flow of air that will move the (ball). You can actually feel like you are
in a zone.”

Star Wars sound effects and audio clips emitted from the base unit
“cue you in to progress to the next level (from Padawan to Jedi) or when to move
the sphere up or down to keep challenging yourself,” Adler says.

“Until today, EEG technology has been designed for rigorous medical
and clinical applications with little regard to price (and) ease of use,” says
Greg Hyver of NeuroSky, which developed the brain-wave technology for both
games. “We are putting this exciting technology into everyone’s living
room.”


I think I can feel something!
