Gawk At The Detail In This LEGO Fawlty Towers Hotel

Just… what? We’ve seen some mighty impressive LEGO creations over the years, but this diorama of the hotel set from the BBC’s Fawlty Towers is the first I’ve seen where if you squint enough, it almost looks real. Well, except for the potted plant on the couch.


The Futuristic Jets, Humans And Star Wars Designs Of Stephen Chang

Stephen Chang tells me he loves to think about how the future will weave technology into humans. He has done a lot of cool art so far and I’m sure he’ll get far. If he doesn’t, that’s fine: He got his design for the Rogue Shadow ship — from the game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed — turned into an official Lego set.


Lego's Amazing New HQ Is Finally Underway (And You Can Build Your Own)

Lego maniacs have another pilgrimage destination to add to their list: The brand’s new “experience centre” broke ground in Billund, Denmark yesterday. As you’d expect, the building itself looks like it’s constructed from a pile of Lego. And thanks to a new Lego Architecture kit, you can start building your own version at home today.


These Smart, Bendable Bricks Could Build Truly Flexible Robots

These may look like Lego pieces, but don’t be deceived: the smart building blocks are made of flexible plastic and stuffed with fluidics channels and electronics, designed to build simple, adaptable robots in double-quick time.


This Website Makes Building LEGO Mosaics As Easy As Uploading A Photo

LEGO gives you unrestricted artistic and architectural expression. That is what’s so great about those tiny blocks of awesome, but not everyone has the time or patience to create a brick-filled masterpiece. One website hopes to change that.


This Is A Fully Functional Microscope Built From LEGO

When something made from LEGO isn’t busting Rubik’s Cube world records, it’s delving deeply into the far corners of science. OK, maybe not the furthest corners, but the fact someone has crafted a working microscope purely from LEGO means almost anyone with time (and a bunch of plastic bricks) can poke around.


7 Iconic Computers And Consoles Reborn As Lego Microscales

I have to admit, custom microscale builds are the things that amuse me the most when I wander through in the infinite world of Lego. Miniatures are just more fun — especially when these tiny builds are actually recreations of classic gadgetry.


The Lego Movie Creators Make Hilarious Action Movie Trailer

Video: The animators of The Lego Movie created this spoof grindhouse trailer featuring Abraham Lincoln and painter Michelangelo as crime fighters in a supposed flick called History Cops. The Lego Movie hits Blu-ray next week, but one of the special features is online now and it’s a lot of fun to watch.


Why Stepping On LEGO Hurts So Much

Right up there with how the gun on the original Duck Hunt game worked, why it hurts so much to step on a Lego brick is one of the questions we’re asked the most, so it’s high time we answered it. As anyone who’s done it knows, stepping on a Lego block is something akin to being shot in the foot by a knife soaked in wasp venom. In truth, this is an inherent danger of allowing a child to exist in your home.


Secret Underground Vault Contains All Lego Sets In History

I watched The Lego Movie once again. Like the first time, I cried like a little kid. It’s a good movie, but the strong emotional reaction came from deep inside, firing the same childhood memories that The Lego Memory Lane — Leg0 HQ’s underground secret vault with all their sets — did when I visited it in Billund, Denmark.
