Lego Art Exhibit…

… Modern art is garbage but at least this artist found a clever use for Legos that doesn’t involve me stepping on them barefoot. No seriously. Have you ever stepped on a Lego in your bare feet? Crippling pain. I know what the road to Hell is really paved with.

Anyway, this exhibit looks mildly amusing and entertaining. It goes to show, you’re never too old to play with Legos.

    I wonder if he makes a living at this. i’ve GOT to seek out some of these guys- as I’m beginning to have my doubts that a 10 year old who still has to ask me about the letter F while playing Battleship will ever be an engineer- but he sure is good with the legos.

      Legos teach things like spacial recognition and basic engineering. There are sets with cogs and gears where one can learn to make their own robots. They were a hoot when I was a kid.

        Yep, I picked up a 12 year old RCX set on e-bay, and then had to go find a USB programming tower for it.

        Daddy wrote the software, he did the hardware, and we wowed everybody by having the only individual child entry at the school science fair from the special needs classroom- a simple electromagnetic crane that picked up ball bearings, raised them to a certain height marked by a magnetic sensor, shut off the electromagnet to drop it, and then started over again.
