LEGO Macintosh: The Only Time I Want to See My Apple Bricked

Ah, the original Macintosh computer. It was an amazing machine to have in your home, especially when most of the other available computers were a bit more complex to use. The Macintosh made things easier, with its graphical user interface, and apps like MacPaint and MacWrite. While it’s not as functional as an original Mac, this LEGO version is still pretty cute.

Luxford St’s LEGO Block Bag: Not Official, Still Officially Awesome

I have to say that even though I’m no longer a kid, I still love LEGO bricks. They are great for building pretty much anything you get your mind set on, and you don’t always need the fancy kits to make great stuff. This LEGO bag isn’t official LEGO merch, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome.

LEGO Dock for Nokia Lumia 900 Lets You Safely Brick Your Phone

The cyan-framed Nokia Lumia 900 is a cool looking phone, but it’s not perfect. While it’s not that expensive, and the OS is pretty sweet, it definitely could use a nice charging dock. Check out this LEGO beauty which was constructed by Baris Eris.

Hermit Crab Decides LEGO Shell Good Enough for Home

I know that you can use LEGOs to build almost anything, but I didn’t think that other species on Earth thought the same as us humans. Check out Harry, the hermit crab, who decided that a shell made out of LEGOs was perfectly fine to serve as his home.

LEGO + Transformer + Game Boy: A 1980s Three-fer

This LEGO Game Boy build has all of the right influences, from LEGO bricks, to Transformers when they were still in cartoon format, and naturally that good old green-screened Game Boy that I played until the screen broke.

Stormtroopers Take a Well-Deserved Break

It was recently said that the actual construction of the Death Star would be around $15.6 septillion, which is 1.4 trillion times the total US debt. In an effort to save money, I bet that the Emperor Palpatine put all those stormtroopers to work. In between all their hard labor, hungry and tired stormtroopers need to take a break, right?

Mathematics and LEGOs: The Deeper Meaning of Combined Systems and Networks

Mathematics LEGO Power Law

You’d expect LEGO kits to be somewhat immune from mathematics, but that’s not the case, as Samuel Arbesman of Wired’s Social Dimension demonstrated most recently. However to start out with, it’s necessary to think how humans combine things together, in general.

Christmas at the Skywalkers’, LEGO Style

This shot of Luke and Leia decorating the Xmas tree does look quite funny, though the idea of a dead Vader head on as a tree-topper is a bit morbid. Either way, even with Darth Vader gone, the Skywalkers still have to celebrate Christmas, even if they are in a galaxy far, far away.

100,000-LEGO Brick Xmas Dalek: Celebrate! Uh, We Mean Exterminate!

Would I spend hour upon hour to complete a 7-foot Dalek, that’s appropriately garbed for the holidays? Probably not, but that didn’t stop the Addis family from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, UK, from going for it.
