Ah, Lego. A cultural icon, the building blocks of dreams, scattered inspiration awaiting the creative process. Lest we get too poetic, below is a mere glimpse of rare and excellent footage we unearthed from somewhere showing a 3D milling machine in action. The really impressive part, of course, is it’s made of Lego. The part that would make you slap your forehead is when the machine sculpts a face from a block of floral foam. Impressive!
Here’s the precious video:
A certain Arthur Sacek is the genius responsible for this incredible build. Without using much else aside from Lego parts and a drill, he successfully assembled a worthy 3D milling machine. The next challenge, of course, is building a bigger more complex beast to create even more awesome stuff.
The pinnacle of Lego, of course, if large industrial machines creating real products are ever built to service small-time manufacturers. That would just rule the world and bring technology to a new level. The beauty of Lego is it’s no longer confined to age groups and a growing percentage of Lego users who simply ‘played’ with it as children find more uses for it during their adulthood. We hope Lego never goes away.
