Lego Mindstorms Make An ‘LCD’ Clock

Lego Mindstorms Make An ‘LCD’ Clock

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.

Spooky Victorian Mansions Made In Lego

Spooky Victorian Mansions Made In Lego

In another setting, the giant Lego mansions you see here could easily have passed as photographs of old, dilapidated houses fit for a screening of some Scooby Doo show. Artist Mike Doyle deserves all the appreciation he gets for these pieces. He did after all, spent huge amounts of time to build these Victorian houses out of nothing but tiny plastic bricks, and yet he managed to give them the spooky old look. These aren’t some tiny, grudgingly made creations either. Creating these houses can take as much as 130,000 Lego bricks and 600 hours of time.

Gears of War Lancer Assault Rifle Replicated in Lego

Made by Plum B, the life size replica has a clip fed firing mechanism that shoots rubber bands, and the Lego saw blade in the front is motorized for some real hard hitting action. This is exactly what rifle replicas brought into the real world should look like, and we’re still going to pretend we’re not impressed in the least.
