awesome DIY led LEGO photo


Imgur user baconeverywhere2 has created a LEGO Lamp.  It’s more of a LEGO Obelisk with some LED strips inside it than what you would consider a traditional lamp.  It measures just over a yard tall (37.5 inches to be exact), and uses a mind-boggleing 25,000 bricks.  That’s too many.

It looks cool, and all the harsh light from the LED strips is filtered by the holes, but I bet this thing is a bitch to clean.  Dust doesn’t like to remove itself from LEGOs, and all the open spaces are dust magnets here.

The curves look nice though, and it sort of looks like a mini LEGO skyscraper.  I bet that’s what the builder was trying to go for.  He claims that it would only cost about $300 to build, I’m sure that’s true but I bet that LEGO doesn’t like when people by 25,000 of the same 3 bricks.  I’m sure it messes with their production and supplies.
