What can't you make with Legos?

Feb. 20, 2014

Legos are more than just toys.

If you are like me, you have fond memories of playing with Legos as a child. With just a few blocks and some imagination, I could create anything from an intergalactic spaceship to a dream house for my dolls. I was never, however, able to make a 3D milling machine.

Created by Arthur Sacek, these milling machines illustrate the true potential of these colorful blocks. After an hour of work, Sacek is able to transform ordinary floral foam into works of art. How long until Lego offers a kit to create your own desktop 3D printer? Or, will you someday be constructing your plant equipment from a pile of Legos?
