LEGO Car

0

That is a life-sized working car built out of LEGOs.  Yes, you read the correctly, life-sized, built from LEGOS.  In fact, it doesn’t even use any glue, all the pieces are being held together by the inherit force of nature that is LEGO.  Based on estimates, this cost about $1 million to make.  Which when … Continued

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

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

I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … 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

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

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?

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

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
