Is there nothing that LEGO can not do? This is one of the coolest LEGO things yet. To promote and celebrate Lego World, which apparently started yesterday,this highly detailed LEGO Ferrari F1 was seen cruising the streets of Amsterdam. Jetix presenter, Leon Krijgsman rode in the Ferrari, made using 80,000 Lego bricks. Lego World will run till the 21st of this month in Zwolle, and will offer tons of Lego craziness. This awesome Ferrari celebrates the anniversary of the legendary brick. One has to wonder just how heavy that F1 is comapred to the real deal.

It will be cold soon as winter comes. What better way to warm our geek hearts and our homes then with this LEGO radiator? It beats the hell out of the typical ugly radiator and let’s face it, it goes with your decor since you have all those LEGO pieces laying around. Appropriately, it’s called the Brick and it’s a real radiator designed by architect Marco Baxadonne for radiator maker Scirocco.
Interestingly the LEGO pieces are pretty efficient at spreading the heat with their surface area. Inside you’ll find that the plumbing inside allows you to snap them together just like LEGO. Pretty neat.
We mean works as in it does stuff like move and light up. It doesn’t suck gas. Proving that with enough time, Lego pieces and will, you can make anything, some guy made an actual Lego V8 engine. It took 4 months to complete.
Which is probably why GM and Ford choose not to use Legos. Plus Lego cars are super heavy and hard to sit in. Plus next thing you know, you’d have Lego and Duplo monopolizing the car market and that wouldn’t be good. Still I suppose they could arrange for the outside of 50% of Lego cars to have the bricks facing inward and half facing outward so that when they crash, they have a 50/50 chance of either crashing or interlocking which should be safer.
The ‘Brick does not endorse this girlly brick thing. It’s basically a Lego photo frame from Brando, for little girls or those with girlly cubicles. You don’t attach other bricks to it. Instead you attach little flowery accessories like a clock, hair brush, cell phone, and hair dryer for some reason. Looks like it comes in white and purple.
You’ll want to hide this in the same spot you hide your Hannah Montana stuff, so your co-workers don’t make fun and call you a sissy girlly man. But if you’re going to buy this for your little girl, it will cost you $16, even though the whole thing is pretty lame. I’m sure she has Legos already and can make this herself.
Bazmarc from the Trossen Robotics Community Forums has built a Lego Wall-E that kills all others dead. It has more movement, therefore more cuteness. It’s the Lego NXT Autonomous Wall-E Robot! Of course it looks like Wall-E, but also has some impressive features. Like I said, it’s movements blow other Wall-E Lego projects away. The result is that it’s more genuine. It’s a TRC Project Contest entry and though they haven’t even announced the contest yet, I can’t imagine anything else beating this little guy.
Technical specs: Technical specs: 1 Mindstorms NXT with rechargable pack, 3 Lego NXT Servo Motors, 4 Lego PowerFonctions motors, 2 PF IR receiver, 1 UltraSonic sensor, 1 Sound sensor, 1 InfraRed link sensor, (HiTechnic), 1 NXTservo module and 1 mini RC servo, (Mindsensors), 10 AA batteries, Lego parts mainly from the Bulldozer set #8275 and other parts from various technic sets. Check out a short video below.
The time is now for a LEGO backpack my fellow geeks. What with back to school and all. Obviously it’s awesome because it looks like a LEGO brick, but just think, it not only will carry your schoolbooks, but you can also fill it up with LEGOS so you can easily transport all your bricks and build something cool wherever you go.
I know what you’re thinking. Won’t I look uncool? Won’t I get beat up if I wear that? You just might and that’s not my problem. But I figure if you’ve got nerd nads enough to buy this thing, you probably have no problem wearing it whatever the consequences. Each of the little “brick nipples”(Hey, what do you call them?) is an individual zippered storage compartment, so it’s got plenty of storage.
Legos aren’t just for play you know. They can also be used to construct and even fix important real life things that you can use. Like this Lego PC case for example. Looking like some shiny black monolith, it’s made entirely out of black Lego bricks. Look how nice and shiny that is. He didn’t just randomly put Lego bricks together either. He used MLCAD to specifically design the PC before building.
The PC is a Mini-ITX form factor that allows for a low power PC inside, which runs a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor and has a 250GB Seagate hard drive. It’s even got dual gigabite ports on the JetWay motherboard. Very nice. Check out the below video to see how he did it. Yet another real life situation solved by Legos. Have you played with Legos today?
Here’s something that makes my cold geek heart melt, skip a beat and pop out of my chest cartoon style. This Lego version of Donkey Kong actually moves people! It moves! It’s alive! Rolling barrels roll. Donkey Kong throws rolling barrels at Mario and Mario jumps. Have a look at the video below.
Pretty awesome invention. I’m not joking when I say that it’s right up there with the toaster and the waffle maker. The guy even made it play the Donkey Kong game start song. If I were rich I would create a Think tank with guys like this, throw a trillion bucks at them and see what else they could do. I would advance geekery and nerdum ahead by a good thousand years.
What’s a guy to do for a hobby when he has a love for both NES and Lego? Combine them of course. More specifically recreate all kinds of classic NES awesomeness using Legos. Scenes from such games as Metal Gear, Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Bionic Commando, Contra, Mortal Combat, Castlevania and more.
These aren’t just slapped together scenes either, but highly detailed snapshots of the game. It’s like a walk down memory lane using Lego vision. It must have taken him hours to do all the work. And a lot of game pausing.
Is there anything Lego can’t do? This guy builds himself an authentic old time record player using Legos and a plastic cup in under 3 minutes. Then proceeds to play himself a record, thereby proving the whole deal isn’t just the product of too much bong water. In this video we also learn that a coffee cup will improve the sound quality of a Lego turntable. Lego 8-Track anyone?
Fred and Friends has a cool-looking fake Lego cutlery set that will hopefully make it to market. Although judging by the picture, they believe that everyone uses utensils to eat apples and bananas for some reason.
These have a great look, but what’s really cool is that the handles are silicone and they snap together just like Legos. So, let’s say you’re eating steak. Attach the knife to the fork in opposite directions, for awesome cutting then stabbing action. It’s also great for playing at the table while waiting on dinner. You could construct a bunch of cool cutlery things. Better then a Duplo set.
This has got to be the coolest Star Wars Lego creation ever. This my friends is a $400 Death Star, comprised of nearly 4,000 pieces and yes, it is available to order. Go change your nerd pants. I’ll wait.
It shows off 14 classic scenes from the Death Star from the original trilogy. Comes with 25 mini-figs and droids that seem more awesome then usual. You know what you must do geeks. Go without a few comics, pull an extra shift, see if mom will let you slide on this month’s basement rent.
We knew it had to happen sooner or later. And it will happen often from here on out. Geeks love LEGO and we also love adorable robots. Building a LEGO Wall-E is serious business too. Joe Meno, editor of Brickjournal magazine, took three months planning it and the end result is a beautiful thing to behold. The end result is a Lego robot with a moving neck and arms, plus rolling treads. Wall-E was cute already. In Lego form he’s twice as awesome. But what about Eve?
This has got to be the coolest Lego Johnny Five from Short Circuit I have ever seen. It’s creator is user rack911 from The Brothers Brick. (No relation to us, but on the Brick family tree somewhere)
Go ahead and check out a ton of pictures of the project at the Brickshelf Gallery. See, this is the kind of thing that Lego needs to be paying attention to. I would buy it and you would buy it. End of story. Robots are cool, Legos are cool. Put the two together and it’s geek magic. He did an excellent job.
Check out this amazingly detailed ’66 Barris Batmobile LEGO replica. The creator has a great eye for detail and even included a Bat-Phone in the car. The Batman and Robin figures are pretty awesome too.
Now, if Lego had this kind of amazing creation sitting on the store shelves, I’d be buying one faster then 1960′s Batman can slide down the Bat-pole. I’d love to see what the creator would do with the rest of the Bat-verse. Definitely a high point in an otherwise slow news day.
