    Day 3 at LEGO World welcomed a big group of new exhibitors; we now have Ricardo Oliviera from Portugal with his vending machine, Sebastian Trella from Germany who brought a couple of his educational robots, Lasse and Kenneth, the two Danish guys with the awesome blimp and 3 guys from […]

    Thursday was crazy busy at LEGO World. No movie today, however. Tammy (my wife) came over to see what all the hubbub was about and she took tonnes of pictures which she’ll edit and upload later. It was kind of cool to see how the people move through the venue […]

    Day 1 started a little late for me because I had to make a stop-over at Eric’s work to pick up a robot (as if we didn’t have enough of those yet) and his laptop for Monster Chess.  The place was a real ant-hill, all sold out and it looks […]

    …So I built you this LEGO contraption so you don’t need to hold that mobile phone anymore. Can you believe that my wife actually sat there patiently while I built this thing next to her?  She was complaining about her arms getting sore from holding up her mobile phone so […]

    Exposed: LEGO Ultrasonic Sensor

    This one was a request by one my readers and what a great suggestion! Taking this sensor apart proved a little bit of a challenge.  It wasn’t as eager to give ups secrets as readily as some of the other ones I’ve opened up in the past.  I also didn’t […]

    Exposed: LEGO Colour Sensor

    No, not a HiTechnic sensor in this episode of Exposed. Yesterday someone on the Mindboards forums asked what the third bump on the LEGO Colour Sensor was for.  I was curious enough to take a small blade to one of my sensors and take it apart.  I did take some […]

    I’m always curious to know how other people’s LEGO rooms look.  I made a quick video of what mine looks like so you can see.  It’s pretty tidy now because this is also my home office and I can’t work very well if it’s all cluttered.  It doesn’t look this […]

    During a games night at our good friends Simone and Stu, the topic of LEGO came up (who would’ve thought it possible, right?) It was brought to my attention that a new LEGO store had opened in Rotterdam, whereupon my reaction was “WTFBBQ? Why didn’t I get the memo?”. So […]
