Lego block calculatorCalculators come in all shapes and sizes these days. One of the geekiest and neatest may just be this Lego calculator. It could help you count all of the Lego pieces that you have stored in that dumpster next to the garage or count how many bricks it will take to make a cool statue.

This one comes in four colors, red, blue, green and black. Not sure if you can actually connect your Lego pieces to this though and get creative. The building block calculator will be available in August, but you can pre-order it now for $27.

Brick LEGO radiator keeps nerds warm

Brick LEGO radiator keeps nerds warmIt 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.

The Brick photo frame is like Lego for girls

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2008

The Brick photo frame is like Lego for girlsThe ‘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.

The LEGO Brick backpack holds schoolbooks, LEGOS

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2008

The LEGO Brick backpack holds schoolbooks, LEGOSThe 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.

The Lego Brick PC

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2008

The Lego Brick PCLegos 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?

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee
Needless to say, we here at the Brick are none too happy about this product. We’re not amused at all. There are some lines you simply don’t cross. To quote the late Jim Croce, “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don’t mess around with Jim.” We’re adding, “You don’t pee on the Brick.”

This strange little “brick” is supposed to make it easy to train your dog to pee. There isn’t much information, but the Potty Training Brick is supposed to have a unique scent that makes dogs want to pee on it. It’s $20. You don’t piss on the brick! That’s all we have to say.
