Apparently he's built a mechanical representation of my drive into work.  Some people have got way too much time on their hands.

What is it with these ball machines? The people who build them must have a 'syndrome' of some sort. This one is even crazier......

those lego mind storm controller are like 200 quid a pop, there must be a good 5 grands worth of lego in that. If anyone who has ever used technic lego will know this is genius, all the contraptions hes designed himself. But the bloke is japanese figures really.

Funnily enouth though alot of the  worlds 'commercial' lego model builders  or set designers originate from europe,  and more so from the UK and better still from Yorkshire !!!

there are a hell of alot of staff of UK origin  working for LEGO  company...

you dont need to be some japanese super dooper  technological boffin to do this kind of thing- its childs play really ( well thats the idea)- you just need a little patience and a big box of bricks  {-)

Its not the construction of the lego that what makes it good. Its the understanding of mechanical engineering that makes this lego do these actions thats good.

LEGO is also great for making model boats.  One of the two sailing at the Black Park Regatta

Excellent! - I've only just read/seen this - Wouldn't it make the lottery show a lot more interesting?

"...and this week, the selected machine is 'Rube Goldberg' and we're using every set of balls! Heath Robinson, please press the button to start the draw..."  {-)
