It isn’t really difficult to be impressed by the flying superman minifig on this Lego TV cabinet made by Rod Gillies. It gets so much more better when you see that the background scrolls, really giving the minifig an appearance of flight. Watch the video after the jump, and be amazed.
The newly opened Legoland in Florida has this giant Lego bust of Albert Einstein, amongst other numerous attractions. The bust is about 20 feet tall, 10 feet wide, and took nearly six months to complete.
The Large Hadron Collider is an experiment that has managed to capture the imagination of a sizable portion of the general populace, so we assume most physicists would be a lot more interested in the experiment. That’s a toy everyone wants to play with, but few get the pleasure.
Continuing with the style of combining Lego and Swarovski for their creations, Cimon Art have come up with two Lego trains built for the holiday season. The Lego train sets are both kinetic sculptures, the Gold Express train styled more like a contemporary express train, while the Silver Steam has been styled with a more retro appearance.
This fully functional Lego camera is the work of Cary Norton. It took him about a year to finish the camera and get it in working order, but seeing the results, we’ll say the Legotron Mark I apparently was worth the time and effort spent.
Using those magical Lego bricks, Nick Jensen made this amazing replica of the Halo sniper rifle, aka the Sniper Rifle System 99 Anti-Matériel. You can see the obvious challenge wasn’t just building the rifle, but keeping it sturdy enough to be used as a prop.
Hans Andersson calls his Lego Mindstorm clock Time Twister. It uses two Lego Mindstorms NXT micro-computers setup to communicate via Bluetooth and display time in a very fantastic format. The master NXT keeps track of time and changes the minute digits, and when it is time to go okay, it sends a signal to the slave NXT that quietly and sheepishly changes the hour display. Well, words don’t do justice to the clock, checkout the video below to see it in action and be the judge.
Made out of Lego bricks, the CubeStormer II robot uses four MINDSTORMS NXT kits and a Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone to hook on to a Rubik’s Cube and uses the magic of ARM processors to solve the cube at an impressive lightning fast speed.
Named “Love to the Rescue,” this sculpture by Cimon Art depicts a container ship made in Lego and Swarovski and floating on an azure sea, sparkling with Swarovski crystals. It is depicted as a ship carrying supplies of “love” and as literature and hope tell us, that is all we need. Cimon has donated the sculpture for charity, and it is being auctioned off to support the earthquake and tsunami relief effort in Japan. The sculpture is priced at $40,000 and is open for bidding.
