From robots to space ships it has every thing.

They can build real cars.

Does It Use Mindstorm?

Yes, it does and other legos too.

Leg-oh isn’t just for kids its versatility has been exploited by innovating programmers to create advanced models and machines combining average plastic Lego bricks with other forms of Lego such as Lego pneumatics LEGO Technic and the programmable robotics Construction Set that is Lego Mindstorms the simplest building blocks have been utilized for some amazing advanced creations amazing if you want to know more about any of these machines then make sure to check out the Creator via the annotation number 10 clocks even though we see them everywhere clocks are actually incredibly complicated and there are numerous mechanisms functions and styles of clocks that you probably weren’t aware of but some of which have been amazingly modeled using Lego here are some more familiar clocks that you may recognize the pendulum clock a cuckoo clock and a digital clock but functionality varies this clock uses a rolling wheel to refresh the time approximately every 10 seconds what about this this ball clock displays the time in another format from left to right you can read the time according to how many balls are present in each chamber for instance here the time is 11:59 and the addition of an extra ball clears the Chamber’s representing 12 o’clock here’s another version number 9 Lego printer printers using ink have been made using Lego but the device I’ll explain is not an average printer imagine printing designs in Lego actual physical Lego bricks well now you can this printer first scans an image and then recreates it as a Lego mosaic in true Lego fashion the canvas is a Lego plate and the mosaic tiles are just one by one plate which are fed through a tunnel and placed by a printer head feed in a design and hey presto it’s Lego art its creator has also made a tasty on machine a cookie icing machine for when imperfect cookies just don’t cut it check out JK brickworks instructions if you want to make your own number 8 milling machine milling machines use rotary cutters to remove and carve material they’re an essential piece of kit to any workshop or manufacturing process and milling is one of the most common processes for machining pots to precise sizes and shapes although it’s less interesting than the other machines its functionality and important certainly deserves recognition number seven guns well these Lego guns won’t exactly kill you in fact your life is more likely to flash before your eyes if you step on a Lego brick but they’re still pretty cool there are plenty of amazing contraptions but this one has to be the coolest it’s a motorized Lego mini gun that can shoot at a rate of 11 bands per second its mechanism is pretty interesting to understand with an advanced trigger system but if you are expecting something a little bit more realistic then check out this replica its functionality is pretty amazing or how about medieval weaponry then check out this trebuchet number 6 loom machine this is the machine grandma’s around the world dream about a machine capable of creating top-notch clothing a loom machine weeds cloth and industrial versions look exceptionally complicated but that hasn’t stopped people from creating amazing Lego adaptations this braiding machine is pretty amazing too number 5 vending machines these machines would make dollar if they were actually secure why not just because they’re awesomely modeled from Lego but because they do more than just sell candy McDonald’s may be fast food but this McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets machine really epitomizes the statement and there are other awesome vending machines too for example a popcorn machine a gumball machine a cereal machine a cake machine tic-tac machine Doritos machine jelly bean machine and many more diabetes friendly devices number four arcade machines most people can’t afford them but at least you can make them out of Lego a common addition to arcades is a skee-ball machine this Lego version of for sweet for each time you win but probably the most iconic and popular game has to be the pinball machine famous for their brightness and artwork they come in many varieties even in Lego what about those machines that eat up all your loose change well coin pushers come in Lego form too and of course an arcade would not be complete without a claw machine number three spaceships okay I lied let’s call this one kinetic sculptures by this I mean functioning moving machines that look awesome for instance marble runs are cool enough but there are other more pointlessly complicated ways to move an object as demonstrated by this elaborate great ball contraption a labyrinth of conveyor systems and modules create a machine that is annoyingly addictive to watch but what about that spaceship well that was designed and built by for hardcore Lego fans in 21 and a half hours and it’s a 5000 piece work of art and with that it’s a matter of perspective another youtuber built this piece to wrap this one up take a look at this strand beast it is a wind powered mechanical creature that was developed by the Dutch artists they are Ansan of course here’s the LEGO version number two vehicles I know what you’re thinking radio-controlled vehicles really well I’m actually talking about drivable vehicles a Lego hotrod in fact although there are some super cool Lego RC vehicles which are worth mentioning like these Mad Max inspired vehicles here is the war rig and this is the peacemaker which can be controlled by your smartphone the same can be done with this Aussie tank and this paddle boat and this is something you may have never heard of a feller buncher used to harvest trees although this miniature versions more equipped for twigs but tout as a real vehicle made only from Lego have enough power to move by taking a look at this clever pneumatic tractor it’s easy to visualize the way that air pressure is used to drive a series of cams cogs and chains that enable the wheels to spin a real-life car used the similar mechanism albeit with a lot more pumps 256 to be exact with approximately half a million pieces this air powered car has a top speed of 20 to 30 kilometers per hour let’s just hope the airbags aren’t made of Lego number one super smart robots the Lego Mindstorms unit is the brains behind these machines but these aren’t any ordinary robots that you can build from a kit these robots have been programmed to do incredibly smart tasks what’s quintessential activities do smart things do obviously they play chess and solve the Rubik’s Cube try beating this robotic chess opponent it is a 4th year university project that can even tell if you’re cheating and this Rubik’s Cube solver crunches complex algorithms to solve the rubik’s cube faster than anything or anyone ever has the a are empowered cube storm of three robot has smashed the Guinness world record for solving the Rubik’s Cube recording a time of 3.25 three seconds at the Big Bang fair in Birmingham UK what machine would you make if you’re a genius programmer and Lego enthusiasts let me know in the comments
