  • 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. The program looks pretty powerful and customizable and the car certainly responds right (although there is a little lag). I’d like to think these are the projects I’d do if I were… Read More

  • Video: ‘LEGO Batman’ trailer

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_Cs3QA%5D 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… 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

    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… Read More

  • Rad: World's tallest Lego tower

    Sure it’s got guy-wires keeping it from toppling and killing little Lego men, but this very tall tower is just neat. It’s nearly 100 feet tall, making it by far the tallest Lego tower ever made. It’s in England, and it has something to do with Vikings, and it’s all colorful, and it’s tall. Maybe this signals a new trend: Legos for World Records. I’m into… Read More

    iPhone Lego appears to be ready to rock and from the soundtrack on this video, enjoys a spicy salsa beat. [Thanks, Orli] Read More

  • First the iPhone gets Spore, now it gets Legos. What's left?


    Spore, the ultimate sandbox video game, and Lego, the ultimate sandbox brick-based toy, are now both coming to the iPhone. It’s only a matter of time before Lincoln Logs and Candyland are part of its expanding game empire as well. Man, the iPod Touch is going to start cutting into the DS’s market share. Did anyone see that coming? The site’s interface is pretty slow and… Read More

  • Video: New Lego Batman game looks fun, gets the Batman feel just right

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf OK, this actually looks great. I’m not normally a fan of the Lego games — not because they’re not good, I just don’t get into them — but this makes me want to play. Hardcore. Read More

  • Lego iPod docks, speakers, MP3 players: Daily WTF

    I’m not that into Lego to really get charged up about these odd little Lego-alike accessories, but if you have $39.99 for this dock or $16.99 for a Lego iPod speaker and/or $46 for a
    mini Lego MP3 player, feel free to head over to homeloo.com and spread the wealth. Products Read More

  • Video: Eddie Izzard's Death Star Canteena reenacted with Legos

    I know this video is old, but chances are a few of you haven’t seen it. And even if you have seen it, it’s still funny, so deal with it. :) Darth Vader ‘Death By Tray’ Lego Video [Geekadelphia] Read More

  • Leaked LEGO sets for new Indiana Jones movie

    What can we learn about the plotline for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from the descriptions of LEGO playsets? Things. We can learn things. There will apparently be a scene involving giant ants, one or more sword fights, Soviets, an amphibious vehicle of some type, boats, a “jungle cutter” vehicle with spinning sawblades, a bazooka, and a long, lost temple.

  • Building the Lego Millennium Falcon

    http://p.castfire.com/Xu7m0/video/5247/bbtv_2008-01-28-161850.flv Want to spend 3 minutes watching someone else build a Lego Millenium Falcon? Well, now you can. However, I’d suggest going and getting your own and building it, ensuring fun for the whole family and leading to less disturbance in the Force. via BBG Read More

  • Life Begins at Fifty: Happy Birthday to LEGO

    Show me a kid that doesn’t know about LEGO and I’ll show you a kid who hasn’t LIVED, dammit! Seeing this 405-piece LEGO bucket makes me want to go out and buy it for the low, low price of $25, although using the words “piece” and “bucket” together kind of makes me want to go out and get some KFC, too. Okay, I’ll get the LEGO bucket and then… Read More

  • Lego wants your input for 10th anniversary Star Wars set

    [photopress:lego.jpg,full,center] Mr. Joel Johnson, friend to the stars, reminds us today that the Star Wars Lego toys turn 10-years-old next year. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Lego is asking its fans (specifically, readers of the Leo blog The Brothers Brick) what they want for the 10th Anniversary edition toys. By the looks of it, Lego is going all out for the new Star Wars sets… Read More

  • Lego gumball sorting machine

    Say you needed to sort gumballs by color. Say you were colorblind like Hickey or your sorting fingers were mangled in a thresher? What should you do? Well, the best solution is to build a Mindstorms NXT robot to sort your gumballs for you and, potentially, encourage you sort out your damn priorities, nerd. Sorry. Actually, I’m jealous of this guy simply because I always wanted to do… Read More

    Hey is that a life size LEGO replica of Hans Solo frozen in carbonite? Indeed it is! There are some other pretty cool photos, including MC Escher’s “Relativity,” a 14-foot long Stegosaurus, a gigantic Loch Ness Monster partially submerged in a lake, and an even more gigantic aircraft carrier.
