This Lego Shaped Mug and Storage Container is More Form Than Function And That’s Okay

If you’re tired of boring round mugs, and let’s be honest who isn’t, than maybe it’s time to step up your coffee game with some mugs that are cube shaped and designed to fit in a Lego shaped storage container.

The blocks are interlockable, like regular Legos, and can be stacked into all sorts of crazy arrangements. Heck, I bet if you buy enough, you can build a spaceship, or a boat, or even a building, just think about all the caffeinated possibilities.

They come in a variety of different colors, and don’t worry they are dishwasher and microwave safe, though they’re probably not hammer safe, so use caution if you’re juggling hammers or whatever you do in your free time.

Each mug and block will cost $17.15, so like regular Legos, you better have deep pockets if you want to build anything better than a odd-shaped box.

Airbnb Is Offering One Winner To Stay In A Life-Size Lego House

Airbnb is partnering with Lego to offer the winner of a contest to spend the night with their family at the Lego House in Billund, Denmark.

Features of the Lego House include furniture made of Legos (duh), including life-sized armchairs, a Lego TV, walls, rugs, pillows, and even cats made of Legos. Thankfully, the bed itself is a foam pad, but it is surrounded in essentially a ball pit of Legos, so there’s that. There’s even a Lego molding press, just in case you have a Lego emergency and need more Legos.

The contest is simple, answer the question ‘If you and your family had an infinite supply of LEGO bricks, what would you build?’ and the winner will be chosen based on originality, creativity, and responsiveness.

If I were answering, I’d say “With an infinite supply of Legos, I’d build my own Lego house, and let people rent it out through Airbnb. Also the person reading this is very handsome.” You don’t think that would work? How do you think I landed this writing job?

Hit the jump to see more shots of the Lego House.

LEGO Hoping To Cash In On New Ghostbusters’ Action

ghostbusters-1

So you might have heard: there’s a new Ghostbusters movie on the way. Those of you who grew up in the 80’s will probably smile at this retro reboot, and LEGO thinks they can cash in by selling you a brand new set. They’ll be releasing the ECTO-1 car and ECTO-2 motorbike sets, complete with characters and gear on July 1st, two weeks before the movie hits theatres. There aren’t any real spoilers in their contents, except maybe the presence of a new Red Deamon character; it’s not like anyone expected the exact same cast to be present this time around. It’ll be $60 for the set.

LEGO-slippers

It’s well known that in Hell, you burn for eternity while walking barefoot on LEGOs. It’s in the Bible. Recognizing this reality, LEGO has finally decided to make things a little bit right by releasing a set of slippers meant to protect your feet from the unmentionable pain of walking on its bricks. Made in collaboration with Brand Station, it’s advertising agency, the slippers are made to look sort of like a brick.

Arckit Is Like LEGO For Budding Architects

Arckit

Building stuff out of LEGO is great, but you’re always aware that you’re looking at LEGO pieces; stuff made like this has a distinctive look and feel to it. But if you’re into creating more realistic structures, Arckit may have what you’re looking for. It’s dubbed “The Architectural Model Building Tool”, and contains modular pieces allowing you to construct modern looking homes in all shapes and forms.

ARCKIT is a freeform model building tool that allows architects and everyone to physically explore designs and bring their projects to life. The interconnecting components use no glue and are completely modular, making it possible to create a diverse range of scaled structures that can be used as working models to communicate ideas to clients and to showcase finished projects.

The kits come in four sizes, called AGo, A60, A120, and A240. The numbers represent the possible maximum floor area in square meters, and kits feature 160+ pieces, up to 620+ pieces for the A240. Additional component packs can be purchased, although prices for the entire range are not on the lower side. AGo costs €59.99, or roughly $65USD, while A240 will set you back a hefty €339, or about $376USD.

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment– And It Looks Awesome!

Are you excited for Ant-Man? I know I am. He’s not your typical superhero and he certainly doesn’t look it, considering he runs with ants and is roughly the size of one when he transforms. The concept was met with skepticism but a lot of folks were intrigued when the trailer was released. Now here’s another version of that trailer by Antonio Toscano, a LEGO builder extraordinaire who recreated the whole thing using nothing but LEGO bricks.

Maybe he should do the entire movie next? You can check out more of Antonio’s work here.

Bricasso Made From Legos Prints Lego Art

Bricasso

 

You don’t have to be a fan of Lego to appreciate the awesomeness of the Bricasso. It’s an aptly-named printer that prints Lego mosaic art, and the coolest part is that it’s also built using Lego bricks. The Bricasso is the work of Jason Allemann who’s as good in coding as he is in building Lego-tastic works of art.

The Bricasso uses the Mindstorms EV3 to scan the images to be Lego-lized. It then picks up bricks which have been placed in a gravity feed system and “prints” them on a base plate.

Here Are The First Shots Of The Upcoming WALL-E LEGO Set

wall-e-lego-3

If you watched WALL-E and didn’t think he was the cutest imaginary robot ever created, perhaps there’s a little hole where your heart should be. So we’re excited to show you what appears to be the first pictures of the upcoming WALL-E set from LEGO. Originally the idea of Angus Maclane, an animator on the movie, LEGO announced back in February that the set would come to life. Now it has and here are what some think are sneak peaks. They showed up on a reseller website, ut now they’ve been taken down. Are they fake? We’re not sure, so obviously there’s no word on availability, but we hear pricing is rumoured to be between $40 and $65. One way or another, we suspect LEGO WALL-E is going to happen.
