LEGO Engineering + Science

0

It’s always fun watching people push LEGO to the limits.  Here you can get a crash course in gear reduction and how to generate torque.  It’s interesting to see the differences in weights that can be lifted.  And it soon becomes apparent that the limitations aren’t in the gearing, or the motor, it’s the other … Continued

LEGO Bridge Girder Builder

0

It will never cease to amaze me with the ingenuity of people when it comes to LEGO contraptions. I’ve never seen one of these full size bridge girder movers, but watching this LEGO version makes me amazed at how humans have been able to make machines to make life easier. Especially since this machine is … Continued

LEGO Jakku

This is a pretty neat diorama of a mix of LEGO scenes from the sequel trilogy.  What you can’t see from the photo is the moving ships that go around the perimeter.  Reddit video doesn’t let me embed it for some reason, so you’ll have to venture over there. {reddit}

Rt. 1

0

An intrepid designer built Route 1 from the original Pokemon games (possibly from Gold/Silver, not Red/Blue).  I like the various touches of trainers, and “wild” Pokemon that appear throughout the level. Pokemon was something of a revolution back in the day.  I remember my first time I beat the Elite Four.  I was so nervous … Continued

LEGO Food Truck

0

Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck.  I gotta say, the thing looks ace.  There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside.  And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal.  Actual. Flames. Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?

How LEGO Bricks are Made

I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time.  Trust me.

LEGO Speaker System

0

Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system.  And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks.  But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly. This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport.  It’s pretty … Continued

Slow Mo Plane Crash

0

There’s something about watching videos in slow motion that is super fun.  There’s something about watching a LEGO town get utterly destroyed pretty fun.  Combine the two, and you have some ace footage above.  Capture by the Slow Mo Guys, this showcases two separate attempts to have a LEGO plane “crash” into a town.  Watch … Continued

This wont run Crysis

0

Unfortunately, this LEGO Ideas project doesn’t look like it’ll gather enough votes to become a reality.  It’s just too geeky I think.  300 pieces seems like quite alot for the simplicity of the design, although, I guess most of those pieces are the small 1×1 circles and connector pieces for the Technic beams.  That being … Continued

LEGO Paper Airplane Maker

0

Arthur Sacek has made the construction of paper airplanes one step simpler with his LEGO creation.  Ok, Simpler might not be the correct word since this looks far more complicated then necessary to make a simple paper airplane, but it is damn cool.  He made it for Arrow.  I’m not sure what the site is … Continued
