Lego robot plays Tetris

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2010


We’ve seen our share of robots and we’ve seen our share of Tetris related items. But until now, the two have never collided in such a cool way. This robot plays Tetris! Branislav Kisacanin’s Tetris-Bot uses a video camera to watch the computer screen and determine which shape is which and where to put them.

That info is then sent to a Lego Mindstorm NXT robot, who hovers over the keyboard with three fingers. You might also notice the R.O.B.-like head too.

Lego Nikon IR remote

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Who says camera gear has to all look the same. If you want to add some geeky style into your picture taking world, check this out. It looks nothing like camera gear. Instead it looks like a Lego creation.

Because that is what it is. This person has jammed a compact IR remote for his sister’s Nikon into a simple yellow Lego brick. Your subjects won’t know what to think when you use this in your next photo shoot.

Lego Mindstorms robot powered by Nokia N900, Twitter

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2010

Is there an area of our lives that Twitter has not taken over? Not anymore. Twitter has many uses and one of those uses is commanding robots like this Lego Mindstorm robot. It’s controlled by a Nokia N900 phone and users can tweet commands to the @N900Niko account and tell Niko the robot what to do. Stuff like, move forward, turn around or take a photo with the N900.

Photos are posted on Twitter using Twitpic. While you aren’t likely to see anything shocking, you’ll see plenty of floor, some chairs, maybe a trashcan. Who knows, it may go all Alfred Hitchcock and let you witness a murder. Probably not though.

Five-foot tall Blackberry Tour made out of LEGOs and a Flatscreen TV

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

LEGO sculpture Nathan Sawaya is at it again with his newest creation, a five-foot tall LEGO model of the Blackberry Tour 9360. He could have cheaped-out on the display, but he didn’t. He integrated a large flatscreen TV into the model to simulate the screen of an actual Blackberry.

And that’s what gives this creation so much authenticity and personality. Still lacks Wi-Fi. As usual, Nathan proves that he has the right stuff as a LEGO master.

Steampunk sequencer generates audio from Legos

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

Musician Yoshi Akai is an unorthodox musician. He dreams up ways to turn color into sound, and other unusual ways of producing music. Like this Lego Sequencer MR II, which uses three-dimensional Lego structures to emulate a three-channel, eight-step sequencer.

Each differently colored plastic brick produces a different sound and complex combinations (including tremolo and overdrive) are possible when the blocks are stacked. It works using resistors in every block, with parallel networks of resistors formed as the bricks pile up, equalling lower resistance, which means a higher frequency sound is generated.

LEGO Star Wars watches

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

The awesome watches above are part of a new line of LEGO Star Wars watches that are arriving on April 1st. No, this is not an early April Fools joke. These watches are real. They come in kids-size and some are adult size as well.

They will cost you $22 for kids, $30 for adults, but sadly the adult watches don’t come with a minifig like the kid’s versions. Don’t they know that we adults need toys too?

Star Wars foosball table made entirely with LEGOs

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2010

You have to be a real Lego fan to make a Star Wars Foosball table entirely out of Legos and Flickr user 2×4 is just such a fan. He has created a Lego Star Wars foosball table that is functional and playable.

The table features C-3PO as the goalie against a whole bunch of storm troopers. Everything is made from Legos, even the table itself is made from LEGOs. Pretty great work. I wonder how sturdy it is.

Lego router works, delivers Wi-Fi

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2010

Lego makes all things possible. So it isn’t surprising that someone named Luke has ripped open the WRT54GL and transplanted it into a Lego case. The best part is that it looks great. I wouldn’t mind this sitting in my living room.

Want to try your hand at this Lego creation? Go for it. Full instructions are available. You can likely get it done during a quiet weekend.

Lego Polaroid Camera

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

It’s no secret that we love Lego around here. We also have a special place in our hearts for the Polaroid camera. So it goes without saying that we have fallen in love with this adorable mashup.

Sadly, this Lego Polaroid 1000 instant camera doesn’t actually work. If it did it would sell like crazy. Maybe Polaroid and Lego can team up and offer us a working model, but we won’t hold our breath.

15 awesome Star Trek Lego creations

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on October 1st, 2009

15 awesome Star Trek Lego creationsIt’s a shame that Lego doesn’t have the Star Trek license. There are so many cool ships and scenes from the Star Trek universe that could be built by kids and adults. Instead, it’s up to Lego enthusiasts to create their Trek masterpieces. Below are 15 that we like, but the universe is filled with so many more.

Cellos made of Lego bricks are all well and good and we really dig Lego combination safes, but Star Trek Lego creations are the “logical” choice.

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2009

Lego Star Wars Minifig USB drivesWe love Lego. We love Star Wars. We also love USB gadgets. Combine all three and you have an instant classic with these Lego Star Wars USB Memory Sticks. These come from an Etsy user from Munich, who has created a whole line of Lego USB peripherals.

Yoda is available along with Darth Vader, and a classic Storm Tropper. They’ve also transformed other Lego bricks into USB keys as well. These cute little mini fig drives will cost you $59.95 and hold 2GB to 4GB of data.

Cello made of Lego bricks

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on September 22nd, 2009

Cello made of Lego bricksLego. We had thought that anything you could make out of Lego bricks had already been made. But we forgot about the classical music scene. This cello is made entirely of Legos. And it’s life sized. And it works.

Brick artist Nathan Sawaya claims that it “sounds different than a regular cello”. Use your imagination. What would a Lego Cello sound like? Yeah, like that. Not tinny, more of a brickish plastic sound. Now we just need the rest of the Lego band. They can tour the country and sell out to geek crowds. Get geek groupies. Dig?
