People are doing crazy things with LEGOs. They’re making replicas of Lord Of The Rings locations, recreating important sports moments, building Terminators … just once I wanted these weird toy geniuses to do something useful. The world has enough Batman jokes for babies, LEGO guys, do something that aids society’s blocky march forward.
Enter: an actual-car-sized car piloted by human beings, made entirely out of LEGO, powered by air. Not even shitting you right now.
Via Bob’s Blitz:
Melbourne’s Steve Sammartino (@sammartino) and Raul Oaida (@rauloaida) asked Twitter followers to donate money so that they could build a life sized LEGO car.
40 responded. And 500,000 LEGO pieces later, they have their LEGO car complete with an engine that has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons that run on air.
Here’s the car in action:
That thing can’t be comfortable to sit in. Have you ever stepped on a LEGO? I don’t want my entire butt to feel like that.
Anyway, congratulations on being massive geniuses, guys. I hope you’re driving that thing to the LEGO Deathmatch:
