Working quadcopter

While I'm disappointed by the fact the motors are NOT LEGO. I like the fact the rest, pretty much, is.

Raspberry Pi "super" computer with LEGO case

Everybody else is promoting this, so why can't we?

LEGO Tie clip

This is the easiest LEGO maker project out there - a LEGO tie pin!

1. Get a tie pin
2. Get a piece of LEGO
3. Glue them together

(Hardly rocket science is it!)

You can then build your specific designs, and fix them to the base plate as and when you want them. Here's a couple of designs to get you thinking!

LEGO in London - Day Something or other

My LEGO builder-in-chief, who was working on this, has decided to to gamescom (lucky bugger!) so I haven't been getting as many pictures as I'd like. So this is a little late...

...but it is almost complete, as you can see.

LEGO in London - Day 12

It's coming along nicely. Should be finished on time, methinks!

LEGO Wheelchair

Ok - so it's limited to 90 kg, but it's an impressive feat that LEGO can support the weight of a person, and move them around.

Note: the wheels aren't LEGO.

LEGO in London - Europe

What is incredibly curious about this is how clear the text looks on the camera screen. Why is that curious? Because it's almost impossible to read the text in real life!

The map you can see has been designed by computer (see http://www.bluedust.dontexist.com/lego/ for the HOWTO), which produces some rather bad aliasing effects around the text. When you photograph it, the computer acts like an un-alias, making it legible.

The completed tile

Simples!

LEGO in London - My method

This is the (part) completed guide I made for my piece of the world map. By marking the various changes in colour _only_ I can verify the counts along each row and column. (It's easier to move one or two guide bricks, than the entire row.) From here I can (blindly) fill in each area, taking one brick in each hand and placing them simultaneously.
