Berthil van Beek shows off one of the cooler LEGO Great Ball Contraption modules we’ve seen. This one uses a complex series of gears and chains to count how many balls pass through it. We wonder if he timed the balls just right, if it could actually work as a clock.

Kids love to leave their toys lying all over the floor, and while most of them are innocuous enough, LEGO bricks can be downright painful under foot. The Brick Wall has come up with a solution – a LEGO Technic machine that sweeps up the pieces – at least on hard floors.

Musician and YouTube celeb Andrew Huang got his hands on a sweet electric guitar built from LEGO by Jay Jillard, and decided to give it some appropriate accompaniment with some rhythm-making instruments which make sounds using only LEGO bricks. More LEGO music here.

LEGO Hot Dog Truck

LEGO Hot Dog Truck

Many of the kits that turn up on the LEGO Ideas site are based on popular franchises. Those often don’t get made due to licensing issues. So we were tickled to see this fun design from Hsinwei Chi for a totally-doable LEGO kit – a hot dog truck with a big weiner dog on top.

When The Brick Wall’s mom requested that he pick some fresh fruits and veggies from their backyard, he set about it the only way a LEGO fanatic knows how – by building a Technic machine to do the work for him. The harvester can pluck, pick, and cut stalks.

Master builders at LEGO America HQ paid tribute to the 60th anniversary of the brick by constructing a 10-foot-tall, 1200 pound statue of a red 2×4 brick, using over 133,000 bricks. Now they just need to build a bunch more of these to build an even bigger LEGO brick.
