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.


How The Lego Movie Should Have Ended

The Lego Movie was one of the funniest, most entertaining movies to come out last year, and pretty much everyone who saw it and had a soul loved it. Everyone except Lego Superman. He had beef with how the movie ended and he thinks he should have just saved the day and be the hero.


The Full Trailer For The Simpsons' Lego Spectacular Special Is Here

Video: The full trailer for the special Lego episode of The Simpsons — called The Simpsons’ Lego Spectacular — is here. I hope it has the best of the Lego Movie and the best of The Simpsons in it.


This Incredible Robotic Building Set Is Like Lego Come To Life

In today’s toy-scape, robotic building sets have handily made the transition from fad to staple, and for good reason — they are awesome. But in a world where Lego Mindstorms reigns king, nothing has managed to combine function, universal appeal and straight up fun quite like TinkerBots. This could be your kids’ — and, for that matter, your — new favourite toy.


Help This Excellent Doctor Who LEGO Set Become A Reality

Doctor Who comes in many shapes and sizes — literally — thanks to the wonderfully wonderful science-magic of regeneration. What the good Doctor’s regeneration powers aren’t capable of is transforming him into bits of LEGO, which would be undesirable from a practical standpoint, but great for those of us who, well, like LEGO. Fortunately, we have enterprising people like Andrew Clark, who’s put together a great pitch for an official Doctor Who LEGO set.
