  • Automated friendship bracelet maker made of LEGOs

    When I was in the 8th grade, friendship bracelets were all the rage — so much so that I started my own bracelet-making business. I would make them in study hall and then sell them for about 2-5 bucks. Demand got so high I ended up talking other kids into making them for me (I would pay them $1 a bracelet). Doing this got the attention of The Man and I had to shut down my little operation. If… Read More

  • NXT robot solves Rubik's Cube without a PC

    When I was a boy, Legos were good for having crash-em-up derbies (Instructions: You and your friends take a big green board each and build cars. The owner of the Legos gets all the good wheels. Crash the cars into each other. Repeat.) Now they have the damn things solving Rubik’s Cubes like some sort of manic hog-skinning machine that needed some time off. The full instructions and code are… Read More

  • Homebrew Wiimote-Controlled Lego Robocar

    From the “Preposterous Headline” Dept: This looks like fun. This guy has put together a C# program that takes input from a Wiimote and passes it to a Lego NXT car with a wireless interface.

  • Video: ‘LEGO Batman’ trailer

    Here’s some footage from the LEGO Batman game that’s set to hit various platforms in September. You can play as the good guys or the bad guys. Speaking of bad guys, Killer Moth and Mad Hatter were recently revealed to be part of the game. Never heard of them, but I did have a killer moth destroy a pair of my corduroy pants a few years ago, so I’m guessing the Batman version is at… Read More

    It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?

    BBG’s Joel Johnson got a few hours with Syd Mead, the designer of the Spinner car in Blade Runner. Mead received a Lego model of his car at a design summit in Billund and he let Joel play with it. Mead proceeded to give Joel the Voight-Comp test and discovered that Joel was a pleasure model.

  • LEGO-like calendar can be reshaped any which way

    LEGO-like calendar can be reshaped any which way

    This product is not for me. Since the relatively widespread adoption of electronic calendars, I’ve sworn off old-school calendars for good. I was the guy with the calendar hanging on the wall that showed the same month for three years straight. Apparently, pulling a thumbtack out of the wall, flipping a page, and then reinserting the aforementioned thumbtack back into the wall was far too… Read More
