Legos Are Cool!

A 3D printer made entirely from Legos, save one drill bit. Pretty impressive.

It seemed to be less a printer and more an automatic jig saw or router. But still nifty.

3D printers do exist but that was not one of them. It was even a pretty poor excuse for a 3D milling machine. CLIKC HERE and play the video to see what a state of the art 3D printer can do.

A friend of mine works for a place that got one of the 3D printers that uses a plastic powder to make things. They use it to make small parts for some machines they still use that they can not get parts for anymore. Other things too I am sure, but that was part of it.

When I was growing up "Tinker Toys" and "Lincoln Logs" were cool!

In fact, the wagon of blocks that I had as a toddler was passed to my brother, his daughter, and yet, again, to her daughter. So, that's at least 3 generations that have been mentally developed because of lead poisoning from paint!
