The cat Tardis is custom-made from plywood and carpet, and is built to order. It stands 47 inches high, 18 inches wide, and 19 inches deep. There are three levels for the cat to sleep and play on. … Read more

Want to live in a Tardis? Try this real estate site

Everyone who's ever watched "Doctor Who" has one thing in common: that covetous feeling when regarding the last Time Lord's residence-cum-conveyance, plus time-and-space transporter, the Tardis.

A joke listing on RealEstate.com.au is therefore the height of cruelty.

"A vintage icon, this London import with a talent for reinvention has multi-generational appeal. Its one owner (who insists it isn't stolen), is considering retirement after 50 years in residence, so is reluctantly offering it to a worthy occupant," it reads.… Read more

'Doctor Who' fans petition to light Empire State Building in Tardis-blue

The timeless Time Lord is about to turn 50 in Earth years, and fans across the globe are gearing up to celebrate. Dedicated Whovians are doing more than tuning into a BBC special show and knitting really long scarves. They're also trying to convince the Empire State Building to light up in a Tardis shade of blue on November 23.

The movement is led by New York SciFi & Fantasy, a fan organization for all things science fiction and fantasy. The group already submitted a formal special lighting request to the Empire State Building, but figured a fan petition would only help the cause.… Read more

Tardis street view: Google Maps goes inside Doctor's blue box

Doctor Who's Tardis has been making cameo appearances on Google Street View for quite some time. Not content to just sit there and gaze at the exterior, Google Street View now goes inside the time and space machine.

You start at the police telephone box Street View location at Earl's Court in London. Click on those subtle double arrows in the middle of the screen and hold on as you're swept inside to the Tardis control room. Good thing the Doctor left the door unlocked.… Read more

Doctor Whir: Remote-control flying Tardis takes to the air

"Doctor Who" excitement levels are hitting overload as the long-running series gears up for a big 50th anniversary extravaganza episode that will bring together many of the doctors in one show. I would recommend celebrating the occasion with a remote-control flying Tardis. It's not going to get tangled like a super-long scarf, and it's a lot cheaper than building your own working K-9.

Forget aerodynamics, this is a pretty faithful replica of the Doctor's Tardis in miniature. The handset controller runs on four AA batteries while the Tardis itself is chargeable through USB from the handset. Half an hour of charging time will net you up to seven minutes of flight time.… Read more

Tardis soda machine: Matt Smith is Sprite

Comic books and soda seem to go together pretty well. That's why Epic Comics has a soda-dispensing machine. But it's not just any soda machine, it's a Tardis. I'm assuming, in this case, T.A.R.D.I.S. stands for "Time And Relative Dimensions In Soda."

The Orlando, Fla., comic book store admits it hasn't tried to use the soda Tardis to travel back in time to bring back Crystal Pepsi or Surge, but it is allowing its fans to vote on what the machine will hold. The current lineup includes five different carbonated drinks, each with a different "Doctor Who" actor assigned to it.… Read more

Tardis PC will be your computer companion

You have a sonic screwdriver toothbrush. You have a Dalek Christmas tree. You even have a Tardis felt purse. Don't worry, you still have plenty of opportunities to express your "Doctor Who" fandom in strange and unusual ways, like with a Tardis-shaped computer system.

Scan Computers in the U.K. got the BBC's blessing to put out a PC that looks just like the Tardis. It has been matched to the exact color of blue of the original Tardis. The door doesn't open, but the DVD drive access is through the police box sign on the front.… Read more

Artsy light show reveals a surreal universe

Sometimes, it's nice to just sit back and enjoy yourself as a mind-bending light show and distorted ambient music collide in the name of digital expression.

Throughout October, Belgian artist Romain Tardy displayed a mesmerizing art installation titled "Pagan" on an exterior wall of the Museum of National Antiquities in Toulouse, France.

The light show -- somehow inspired by a bacchanalian head from the third century -- consists of stars, lines, and abstract figures breaking apart and merging back together. Musician Squeaky Lobster provided the eerily calming music for the event, ensuring a total transformation of the senses for most observers. … Read more
