Here’s a post from a designer about the joys of growing up a LEGO kid: One choice quote: “I’d make anything and everything I could with Lego. If I didn’t have a certain toy or if there wasn’t one for it (for instance—when Ghostbusters first came out, their Proton Pack guns hadn’t been released in any kind of toy form), I’d do my best to recreate it from Lego. I had a lot of Lego.”
Nice Ghostbusters reference, huh? He also includes some cool images from an old ad campaign that will bring on a serious wave of nostalgia for anyone who remembers their first set of LEGO bricks.

Matthias Wandel, RIM engineer, “was able to construct a device that could rotate the 950 through it’s horizontal axis and vertical axis, looked sweet, and likely cost all of 10 bucks to make. We commend anybody who can create useful real world tools with toys, though of course we expect RIM can now afford Robots for this type of chore, or at least LEGO robots.” Check it out here.
