Lego joke

First click play. Done? Amazing yes? Apparently Youtube user "horseattack"'s printer was a side project done on evenings and took about 3 weeks. The printed picture come out at about 75 DPI (Dots Per Inch)and the printer even works with the normal print mechanism on OS X. Though it doesn't use an RCX, in all it's a commendable achievement that yields excellent results.

There's a storm coming.....

Flickr builder m_o_n_k_e_y's Blizzard Peak mecha looks not only menacing but fantastic. From the wonderfully sculpted Gundam-style legs to the the to the pleasingly simplistic cockpit the Blizzard looks ready to take on any large horde of arctic creatures out there. I especially love the attention to color scheme that is worked into the model. The combination of the green/blue strip with the white/black blocking is nothing short of genius. Check out this an his other Mecha in his flickr set as well as his Vic Vipers for Novvember.
