Even though a Lego prosthetic is hardly practical, the building of one that is comfortable and actually fits is a feat to be comended. Christina Stephens, an occupational therapist and researcher, had her left foot amputated last year after it was crushed beneath the car she was rebuilding. The idea was suggested by a co-worker […]
Just when we decided the world had exhausted all the possibilities for using Lego, we chanced upon this crazy Alien-inspired Lego facehugger by Spain-based DeviantArt member Carlos Valero. Never mind just how horrifically silly it looks, we can see how it might come in handy as a sleeping eye mask one day.
James Bond (and Lego) fans will no doubt get a kick out of this re-make from Bricktease. Created using scenes and figures entirely composed of Lego, the first few minutes of the opening scene of Casino Royale is surprisingly accurate and super-clever. The fight scene is particularly brilliant/hilarious. Go Lego-Bond, go!
Now this is truly Lego for adults. The arched backs and suggestive poses of these pixelated Lego sculptures of realistic female forms — virtually all nude except for stilettos and g-strings — give the innocuous building blocks a decidedly adult spin. Fun. Photographer Jean-Yves Lemoigne teamed up with 3D artist Pierrick from Spark for a […]
German ad agency Jung von Matt were recently in cahoots with Lego to launch this pretty minimalistic series of ads for the toy giant. Look and guess which cartoons each one’s from.
Thanks to Google Chrome, now you can build LEGO creations all over the globe. From the comfort and convenience of your computer, you can create and build anywhere on the map. Just find an empty plot and commence construction. The world is your LEGO set.

If you don’t already find your iPhone fun enough to play with, you can now turn it into a LEGO brick thanks to design company Tinkerbrick. Users can make LEGO creations, using their phone as a base or as part of the design. Some have even built structures to support their phone while recording video. For just $33 it sounds like a good investment to us. Check out what iPhone/LEGO enthusiasts have been up to below.
Who says work can’t be fun? At the LEGO Denmark office, you can find a to-story-high slide, colorful wall graphics, and bonzai gardens on the tables. Copenhagen-based Rosan Bosch designed the LEGO office with playfulness in mind. Of course, you can always find some LEGO toys lying around, if you’re still not satisfied.
It’s David Simon’s The Wire adapted into a Lego stop-motion animated film. That’s all you really need to know. Created by Joe Nicolosi and the team behind another great adaptation, CSI: Legoland.
The city I live in, Singapore, regularly gets flake for its densely concrete landscape — our land covers just 704 km2 of the world — so it’s quite refreshing to look at this classy architectural photo series by Lithuanian artist Aiste Stancikaite. Everything looks so beautiful.
Just last year, Caroline and Nick Savage formed an estimate that indicated that nearly 99.9% of all people have no Lego legacy at all. Who better to immortalize in the iconic toy than the Olympic and Paralympic heroes of this last summer.
This is so cool and out of control I can’t handle it. Users of the Google Chrome browser can visit this website to explore Google maps, build their own LEGO plots with a 3D builder tool, and see other people’s creations. As if getting work done wasn’t hard enough. Come visit me at Karla manor.
The project Build Up Japan asked 5000 children from six regions in the country to build the Japan they wish to see, using Lego blocks to construct the buildings of their imaginations. The structures used 1.8 million Lego pieces, and were arranged over the shape of Japan in a stunning landscape of tall white towers.
