The Pancake Bot is a 3 axis CNC made robot that uses the Z coordinate as the Pancake Batter Dispenser Control. I can only hope that one day we will be able to buy robots like this and welcome them into our home.
Do you love comics, but don’t particularly want to flex the brain muscles required to actually read them? Then suit up spaceman, because this helmet is for you. Jonathan Robson has designed this Lego minifigure-inspired helmet, just for you.
The helmet has volume control and even a page skipping button on the side. On the back, there’s even a port for plugging in a USB flash drive loaded with audio content. Sadly the helmet is designed just for kids, but if you have a tiny head then go for it.
Cary Norton has been working on and has now completed a Lego camera called the ‘Legotron’. Yes, it is made with Legos as the name implies. He created a few prototypes first and soon after, the Lego Legotron was born.
The camera measures 7″ x 6.5″ x 7″ and features a 127mm ƒ4.7. The focus comes from sliding the internal box section back and forth with a focus range of about 3 feet to 18 inches. He’s already planning the next model and hopes to produce plans using the Lego modeling app. It looks awesome.
Lego fanatics can never get enough colored bricks or mini Lego people, so they will love this toy. The Classic LEGO Minifigure is now available as a USB flash drive. How awesome is that? This is a Lego Mini-fig with a 2GB USB flash memory drive inside.
You can store all of those pictures of your Lego creations, MP3s, games, documents and whatever. It will also attach to your keychain, so you won’t lose it. The official LEGO USB flash drive is compatible with Mac and PC as well as every geek it comes into contact with.
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.
ThinkGeek knows what geeks want and they are not afraid to give it to them. If you love both Star Wars and Lego, these are the alarm for you. They look like Lego minifigures, but function as an alarm clock. They come in Darth Vader or a Storm Trooper.
Both have an alarm clock in the chest and feature movable arms and legs. They are 8-inches tall and can sit or stand on your desk. Only $29.99.
We’ve seen plenty of Lego creations around here, but this one is probably the grossest. This dissected frog is made entirely out of Lego bricks. The creator made the dissected frog for the MOC Olympics where it was entered into the anatomy category.
It’s pretty cool, but also pretty creepy. It reminds me of biology class. I can smell the formaldehyde. Good times. Not! Even the tablet, pins, tweezers, and scalpel are all made from Lego.
These Star Wars minifig clocks are about 8″ tall, not actual minifig size. They would be awesome to have by the bed.
Looking for something in a USB key that goes with your new Wiimote? Well check this out. A LEGO USB key that is also glow-in-the-dark.
The Zip Zip Glow in the Dark USB key will apparently glow in the dark for several hours and is available in several capacities, ranging from 2GB to 16GB. This cool Lego accessory will cost you $35 to $90. At least you won’t lose it at night with that glow.
Lego fans will want to dust off their Wii and check out the official Lego Play and Build Remote for Nintendo Wii. Alas, the entire thing is not made of Legos, If it were, it wouldn’t be compatible with standard chargers and attachments. But it’s still pretty neat.
It will put you in the game more when playing those Lego Batman and Star Wars titles. These will be available on October 16th for $39.99.
The NB1000 from Pentax is all about customization. It is identical to the RS1000 and comes with a Lego-like body, allowing you to customize your camera with different blocks that come in several sizes and colors. It’s basically just a cheap ploy to get Lego fans buying the camera.
The NB1000 is a 14.1-megapixel camera with a 4x zoom. It is capable of recording 720p video too. Looks like this one is for the Japanese market only though. It will be available later this year for 20,000 Yen ($238).
I don’t think we’ve ever seen an actual set of Lego headphones before. This Instructables DIYer didn’t just glue a few Lego bricks onto an old pair of headphones either. If you look at the detail, this guy has some awesome skills.
The whole project took about a month and a half to complete. The creator claims that they are sturdy enough to be “tossed around in a bag”. And he can take it apart any time he wants to make repairs that may be needed on the go.
We love Legos around here and at this time of year we also like some ice in our drinks. So when we find something that involves both, it makes our day. Lego Minifig ice cubes are awesome. Put a whole bunch in your drink and it will look like a Lego maritime disaster.
The Lego Minifig Ice Cube Tray will make eight Lego Minifig ice cubes at a time and will cost you just $8. It goes with all of the other Lego themed stuff around your home.
A saw made out of Lego bricks, but with a real blade is a hospital trip just waiting to happen. This thing really works. So I hope they’ve alerted the local ER. This Lego saw can cut through a 2×4, so limbs should be no problem.
Just to be extra safe, the tips have been removed from the blade and it’s set to stop if you touch it. But still. I don’t trust this Lego saw one bit. But it is a cool creation. I’m now looking forward to the Lego nail gun and jackhammer. Once those are ready, I can make my own Lego themed construction site where our hard hats snap onto our heads and the buildings are many colored bricks.
It would be cool to have a keyboard where the keys are all Lego bricks, but the downside is that those keys would be painful to type on with those nubs digging into your fingertips. Well, there is a simple solution.
For just $15 you can get these keyboard decals on etsy. Your keyboard will look like Lego-land and it won’t be painful at all. The best of both worlds. I’m no Lego geek, but the colors seem slightly off however.
