Letterpress made from Legos

Letterpress made from Legos


Designers Sam Cox and Justin LaRosa have created something that actually is about as cool as it sounds. They created a letterpress made from Lego bricks for Physical Fiction, the best part of course is that the Letterpress is actually functional. Smooth Lego tiles are placed on plastic baseboards, and inked to create these cool hand-made prints with the cool 8-bit pixilated look. Given the look of the prints, it almost implies that a lot of work would involve characters, imagery, stories, and in some cases, even sounds of old video games.

Lego Mario made using 3D scanners

Lego Mario made using 3D scanners

This Lego Mario is about as precise a Mario figure as you can get with Legos. It started off with using a NextEngine 3D scanner to scan Mario action figure. The wireframe of this scanned image was then used to Mario mesh with Lego sized cubes. And finally, the complete, 75cm tall Mario Lego was built.
