Do you have any idea how easy it is to build a Lego house?

Lego isnt exactly cheap but its fairly sturdy, im not at all surprised somones done either of these things (car or house), but still its super cool to see it in action.

Lego plane anyone?

I dunno about sturdy...I have a bunch of LEGO and they're always breaking if the shelf is bumped.

They're surely glued together.

What a cool car. I see new competitions on the horizon!

And it would never be sold in the US. That's going to take a lot of money away from some companies.

If it can be functional then why not use it in the summer?

Hopefully not with the evil Kragle!

Well it being made out of Legos for one... I also am pretty sure this thing goes 5 mph max. Probably not a ton of safety features either.

I can't tell when people are joking anymore.

Maybe 5 mph should be the max speed for some people. My electric wheelchair gets 15 mph.

The technology of the engine is what impressed me more. THAT'S the technology I was referring to.

You don't drive a Lego car because you're concerned about safety features, you drive one because it makes you an immediate badass.

Make the whole car solid body plastic, put that engine in it and then drive it slowly through town. That would reduce carbon and as long as everyone is driving slow there would be less wrecks and damage to vehicles, then it would decrease insurance rates.

The only ones who would be negatively affected would be:

Insurance companies
Hospitals
Ambulance drivers
Oil companies
The government

The ones who would still need steel bodied cars are
Truck drivers
Construction workers
Police men
People who drive interstates.

Suppose then that you could indeed get the cars up to 60 mph then you could still use it on the interstate. The ones who would benefit are

You
Your mom
People taking short trips in town

This guy discovered a way to get a car to run on air, that seems to me to be a good idea.

Just use the "Kragle"


I don't think a plane would work though (too heavy). That Lego house must have cost a fortune in Legos!

I always thought they should make actual mason bricks like Legos in shape. Bet it'd make a wall a lot stronger.

Yeah sorry, i meant once glued of course!

Also new lego holds together far better than well played with lego.

I used to like building elastic band guns to shoot at lego men, that was my favorite sort of thng to make once the actual model got boring.

I regret giving away my 50L box of lego when i was younger, it was dumb from a financial and fun point of view! I hopethe new owner, or by now owner's got a fraction of the enjoyment out of it as i did - that would still be years of fun!
