Many BrickGun LEGO models to choose from

Many BrickGun LEGO models to choose from
As kids, we all built our share of toy weapons out of LEGO, but the end result was always a mess of different colored bricks that just looked weird. Here are some more authentic looking weapons. We told you about the Glock 17, but BrickGun actually has several models available. The BrickGun models are surprisingly accurate when compared to their real life counterparts. At the moment the company sells 5 different models including a Beretta 92FS, a Desert Eagle Mark XIV, a Glock 17 and 19, plus a limited edition Heckler & Koch MP5 which is sold out at the moment.

They won’t fire a projectile, but they have ‘working’ triggers, slides, hammers and other moving parts. The handgun kits range in price from $39.99 to $59.99 and include all the LEGO pieces and instructions you’ll need. Or you can order a CD with just the instructions or even purchase PDF files directly from the BrickGun website.

BrickGun Glock 17 for LEGO related crime

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2008

BrickGun Glock 17 for LEGO related crimes
The BrickGun Glock 17 is obviously our gun of choice here at the Brick. It’s perfect for LEGO related crime, and would come in real handy if you ever find yourself in an alternate universe where humans are LEGO people. It’s built to a 1:1 scale so it fits your hand just like the real thing.

It looks just like a LEGO replica, and even shares many details of the actual glock. You can even pull the slide back and cock the internal striker. Pulling the trigger will cause the striker to fall with a nice loud “click”. The slide can also be opened like the real deal when the magazine is emptied. Good thing this doesn’t shoot anything, so you can’t put somebody’s eye out. No word on pricing yet.

BBC’s Olinda radio is modular, like Legos

BBC’s Olinda radio is modular, like Legos
Who says there are no new ideas? The BBC are certainly not lacking in imagination. They commissioned this neat idea that combines social networking with a digital radio, and the end result is Olinda. On one hand, it’s a normal digital radio, but when you remove the clear orange cap, a plug-in interface is exposed.

You can add modules onto the end of it, like building with Legos. This one has small buttons that each correspond to one of your friends. A button lights up when one of your friends is listening to the radio, so if you push that button, you’ll hear the same radio station that your friend is listening to. The creators hope to develop more modules, thereby expanding the uses of the device.

Lego MP3 players are true bricks

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2008

Lego MP3 player
Here at the Brick we’ve reported on our share of MP3 players, but these plastic and unofficial Lego-like bricks are one of the coolest/lamest, depending on your perspective. Of course we’re partial to all things brick. The controls are concealed as the raised bumps, and they sport a six-hour Li-ion battery. However, you do need your own microSD card for storage.

The players come in the same primary colors that you are used to seeing with Lego blocks, and just like the real thing they are made mostly from plastic. You can get one for $46, but don’t expect to build anything. I’m guessing that if you want a cheaper version, you’ll have to hold out for the crappy Duplo version, which you’ll want to hide in order to avoid ridicule.

Clever lego advertisement showing the imagination of a childHere are some clever LEGO ads by FCB Johannesburg showing that kids might not necessarily need elaborate kits, and what a simple LEGO brick design might look like through the eyes of a child. Very cool.

Lego my iPod

Posted in Dock,iPod Accessories,Speakers by Chetz on September 24th, 2007

Lego shaped iPod dock with speakersYou want strange, we’ve got strange. Check this iPod dock out that is being offered by a Korean company called 10×10. For a low price (how does about $16 sound to you?) you can import a docking station for your iPod player that looks like a Lego brick.

Whether 10×10 got the license to manufacture an Apple accessory that uses another company’s trademark is up for grabs but if you still have fond recollections of your childhood toys and need a more colorful dock for your ‘pod, now you can stop your search. Measuring 6 cm x 1.5 cm x 2.5 cm, the dock comes in red, yellow and blue and features two speakers built right in. Just don’t get it lost amongst your real Lego bricks.

Lego USB Flash Drive

Posted in Flash Memory,USB by Reuben Drake on May 31st, 2007

Lego USB Flash Drive from ZipZipUSB flash drives come in all shapes and sized these days, and not even a lego brick can escape it.

A Australian company called Zip Zip has created a 1GB USB flash memory thumb drive out of small Lego bricks just to add a little fun to you data storage needs.

This design makes me wonder if you could stack these bricks together, and something that would be really cool is if by stacking them you could expand the memory. But for now I think they are just regular Lego bricks with a …

Rubik’s Cube Solving Machine Made From Legos

Posted in Games by Chetz on September 21st, 2006

Rubiks Cube Solver

Years ago when Rubik’s cubes were new and popular I worked on one for weeks and eventually developed a system for solving them in a relatively short amount of time.

I was able to do this because I figured out that the colors were adhesive stickers that I could remove and stick back on where I wanted.

Pictured here is a machine made out of legos that not only can manipulate the Rubik’s cube, but it can also identify the color and solve the puzzle. At around 30 seconds a move it takes a little …

Sony PlayStation TVSony announced at the 2014 E3 conference the release of the Playstation TV to the U.S. and Canada, but did not provide an exact release date, yet.

Cook and Stack Kitchen Utensils

Posted in Kitchen Gadgets by Tam Yue on May 7th, 2014

Cook and Stack UtensilsYes, please. This is really amazing way to save space in those cluttered kitchen drawers. Yes, you can get some kind of random jar to hold your utensils, but that’s what all of the regular old normal people do.

These are not utensils that someone just glued a extremely familiar shaped brick onto the end of a spatula. Those bricks are actually a part of the utensil. The set comes with the grey base plate, a spatula, ladle and pasta strainer. You can purchase this set for 34.99 …

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2011

Hasbro has announced a new toy line this week called KRE-O. Think of it as their version of Lego. They come in some neat looking Transformers character kits. The kits will include Optimus Prime, of course, for $59.99.

Other smaller kits will also be offered, with mini collectible figures for about $8 and other kits like Bumblebee and Starscream will cost about $25. According to the company these blocks are compatible with “most” other building block systems on the market. That means your Legos should be compatible. Look for these this fall.

Mechanical Yoshi is on the rampage

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2010

You might remember that awesome Mechanical Mario from earlier this year. Well, Donald “KodyKoala” Kennedy is at it again and has created a Yoshi version.

It is simply amazing like Mario. He used a Playmobile police station for Yoshi’s back and a couple of Lego laptops for the front display and keyboards. We’re not sure how tall it is, but we picture it rampaging over a large city causing mayhem.

2B, 4GB and 8GB models are available, with pricing set at £4.58 ($7.26), £5.04 ($7.99) and £9.00 ($14). These drives are basically building toys in bright colors. What more do you want in a flash drive?

Darth Vader Minifig Alarm Clock

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on October 31st, 2010

LEGO and Star Wars have joined forces and turned these Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Minifigs into a digital clock with an Alarm and a Snooze Button. They are available at both Amazon and Toys ‘R’ Us.

These Star Wars minifig clocks are about 8″ tall, not actual minifig size. They would be awesome to have by the bed.

Magnetic nanodots let you build geeky stuff your kids won’t get

Posted in Toys by Shane McGlaun on September 15th, 2010

When it comes to geeky toys that we liked when we were kids and many adults still play with today, building sets are right up there. I would wager a number of geeks play with Lego to this day and on occasion, we see an awesome Lego sculpture turn up. A new and suitably geeky building system called nanodots has now surfaced.

Nanodots are tiny little magnets that are round and look like BB’s. You can take the little nanodots and use them to build all sorts of shapes and other items with angles, flat surfaces and more. The magnets are powerful enough to keep their shape even with complex designs needing thousands of the little things.
