  • Lego Tries Augmented Reality With “Life Of George” Game

    Lego Tries Augmented Reality With “Life Of George” Game

    Lego (or LEGO if you’re adamant about trademarks) has just dipped another toe into electronic gaming with their clever “Life Of George” iOS title. The game uses 144 pieces and a piece of cardboard covered in a dotted pattern. The game is simple: George shows you a picture from his travels and asks you to recreate it using Legos. You have to dig around in your box of pieces… Read More

    Lost In Legoland: A Gazillion Bricks And A Mini Star Wars Geekfest

    What happens when a geek winds up in Legoland? He has loads of unfiltered fun, that’s what. You can spend hours just looking at the fantastic creations, big or small, go on fun rides or visit some of the movies and exhibitions in the designated areas. I promised myself to come back here when my kids, who is now only 5 months old, grows a few years older. If you have kids, or you would… Read More

    Video: Functioning CNC Mill Created From LEGO

    While I may have created some sweet spaceships in my days constructing LEGO, I never guessed how serious people would get with their blocky creations. Guns, computer cases, even a Tetris-playing device and a robotic hand. So I shouldn’t be surprised that someone has created a CNC mill with their Mindstorms NXT set. Check out the video inside.

    Lego Cased Computer Crunches Efficiently For A Good Cause

    For many people, building with Legos brings back fond memories. For Mike Schropp, the memories are still being built. Schropp loves Legos, often incorporating them into technology. For his latest project, Schropp built a 12-core PC tucked into a custom made case he designed using some 2,000 black Lego bricks. The finished product is not only awesome looking, but also energy efficient. Read More

  • This LEGO Lunchbox Wants Nothing More Than To Hold Your PB&J

    Bring the fun of interlocking bricks to the cafeteria. This officially-licensed LEGO lunchbox isn’t anything fancy, but it’s a sure fire way to meet fellow brickheads. (Is that what LEGO nuts are called?) The only downside I can see from my post on top of a LEGO mountain is that it’s only available in certain countries and that doesn’t include the US of A. [Firebox… Read More

  • The Internet Presents More Lego Guns

  • This Motorized Lego Tank Shoots Bricks, Likes No One


    John, you can have your dumb Lego guns. My army of Lego tanks are going to decimate you and your cats.

Sorry, you’re going to lose this one, compadre. Read More

  • Wear Around Your Childhood Friends With These Spaceman Lego Cufflinks


    These Lego Spaceman cufflinks are sort of self-explanatory just like the folks who wear them. Fine by me. $16.99 a pair on at this Etsy store where there are about a zillion and quarter more similar Lego cufflinks and tie tacks. I like these the best. [via Cool Hunting] Read More

  • Lego Guns: The Antithesis Of All That Is Lego

  • Lego Angry Birds: Needs More Pigs


    Sadly, these Lego Angry Birds by designer Tsang Yiu Keung are not for sale nor would you be able to play with them because they would explode on impact like Lego frag grenades, causing injury and sadness. Read More

  • Video: DIY Lego Drum Machine NXT-606

    In 1998 Lego introduced the MINDSTORMS product line. The NXT is a brick-shaped computer that can take in sensory input, control motors and most importantly in this case, play back sounds. The NXT-606 drum machine is based on this unit and I must say it sounds pretty good. You can even get a set yourself and build your own. And why shouldn’t you do that? Click for the video Read More

  • The Star Wars trilogy told in 2:13 with LEGOs

    I don’t know if it’s more sad: someone actually owns that many Star Wars LEGOs or that I’m jealous. Either way, the video is awesome. Well done, kind sirs. Well done. Read More

    With a webcam, a digital signaling processing board, and some Lego Mindstorms pieces, Creator Branislov Kisacanin put together what he calls the Tetris-Bot. The way it works is the Texas Instruments DSP board analyzes the screen and then communicates with the NXT robot through LED lights. The Tetris-Bot will then push the buttons on the number bad, which it can do at up to three strokes a second. Read More

  • LEGO Prince of Persia – wait, it's actual LEGOs?

    I suppose it’s mixed blessing for LEGO that when I saw the headline “LEGO Prince of Persia” I immediately thought of their successful video game line. I played with LEGOs when I was young, but I wonder how long they’ll remain relevant when even fans like myself cease to think of LEGO as the actual blocks, and think of them more as a brand of toys and games. Ah well. At… Read More

  • DIY: Nikon IR remote in a Lego
