Nanoblock Nikon

0

Nanoblock is sorta like LEGO, except smaller.  And, it’s not LEGO, and it’s Japanese.  It’s smaller pieces, hence the name, that allow more detailed models to be made.  It looks cool, but I don’t think they will have any real dangerous impact on LEGO.  However, this small model is really nano, because it’s made up … Continued

LEGO Trains

Youtube user bananenbuurman, has an impressive collection of LEGO trains.  I’m particularily fond of the First Person view of this track that goes through an underwater tunnel.  It’s pretty cool because of the scale, everything seems faster then it is, (it could be speed up, but it doesn’t need to be).  I watched the whole thing, … Continued

LEGO Vatican

Father Bob Simon from Pennsylvania spent a couple of years building this 14 foot long scale model of The Vatican.  It consists of about half a million individual bricks.  St. Peter’s Square consists of 44,000 individual 1×1 round flat tiles.  Let me repeat that, 44 thousand tiles.  Just on the floor.  That’s insane. Here he’s … Continued

LEGOize your Photos

0

Legoizer might be one of the coolest website scripts I have seen in recent memory.  It allows you to upload a photo which it will then analyze and turn into a LEGO mural.  Look at the above, it’s actually a pretty decent representation of the below: My mural will end up being 5 foot 3 … Continued

Another DIY post courtesy of reddit, this time stubbornmoose has made a coffee table out of maple and walnut, but with LEGO baseplates on the top so that his kids can set up a LEGO town on it.  That is a great idea.

If this morning’s ION Thruster was too slow, or dangerous for you to build, try your hand at this more traditional building block, LEGO bricks: Comprised of about half a million bricks, it’s powered by 256 cylinders which in turn are powered by compressed air.  Everything is built out of LEGOs (except for maybe the … Continued
