Brik Case Lets You Customize Your MacBook And MacBook Airs With LEGO

The-Brik-Case-Customizable-MacBook-Case-by-Jolt-Team-image-1-672x372

In today’s mass-produced market, individuality comes at a premium. There’s a number of ways in which you can make your personal items stand out from the hordes of other identical ones out there, but the Brik Case is one of the more creative ones we’ve come across. Made for MacBooks and Macbook Airs (2013 or later), the case simply clips on to your laptop and allows you to stick any number of building blocks on it from LEGO, Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, KRE-O, and even K’NEX! It’s fun because you can constantly re-arrange them and modify your “artwork” to your heart’s content. A $35 pledge gets you a Brik Case as well as a bag of 100 1X1 Bricks, so you can get started customizing as soon as you open the package.

The Only Apple Watch We’ll Be Getting Is This LEGO Apple Watch

Apple-Watch4-640x640

Haven’t you heard? The Apple Watch is nigh! Hordes of people are getting ready to plunk down anywhere from $349 to $10,000 to own Cupertino’s first wearable, and to be honest… we won’t be one of them. We were happy enough not to need a watch anymore, once phones made them obsolete, that we’re not about to pay extra for redundant tech. But hey, we don’t judge. If you want to get in on the action, on the cheap, you could always spend some time building the above LEGO Apple Watch. Master LEGO builder Chris McVeigh has posted a very detailed and exhaustive document detailing exactly how you can make your own. With a bit of patience, and the right LEGO pieces, you’ll be able to wear… some sort of statement on your wrist.

Beautiful And Functional Turntable Made Out Of LEGO

lego_turntable_00

We never cease to be amazed at other people’s talent, patience, and dedication. To craft a fully-functional turntable out of LEGO bricks, Hayarobi, a Korean lego enthusiast, used up 2,045 pieces. The only non-LEGO parts are the Audio Technica phono cartridge. It’s even “powered by a LEGO Power Functions Battery Box and uses a LEGO Power Functions M-Motor.”

The creation is called ‘The Planet’ and was displayed at the 2014 Seoul Brick Pop Art Exhibition. Make sure to follow the link below for a ton more pictures.

LEGO Brick Coffee Table

It looks like we’re going to be talking about coffee tables today. The LEGO Coffee table is the creation of Easy seller Branching Outward, and is made to order from lacquered wood and comes in a variety of finishes. It measures 28.5 inches x 16 inches x 15 inches, eight in at 48lbs. and costs $375(USD). They’ll ship to the continental US only, so the rest of the world will have to go without this beauty.

Put Some Carbon Fiber In Your LEGO Creations

carbon-fiber-lego-1

LEGO stuff is pretty darn popular amongst our audience; you can get a sense of just how true this is by looking at our coverage of LEGO material over the years. So we think you might like the above Carbon Fiber Tiles. They’re just 1X2 tiles that are covered in a glossy carbon fiber layer. You can use these to augment your regular creations, and give them a little flair. It’s purely aesthetic, and like anything made just for looks, costs a pretty penny. A 10-pack of 1X2 tiles will set you back a $14 pledge, while two of those packs costs $25, a $3 savings. Delivery, if the campaign fully funds, would be slated for January 2015.

Fake Ad Campaign Mashes Up Pop Culture Characters Into Fake LEGO Minifigs

homerine-lego-minifig

Remember being a kid and cherry-picking superpowers from different characters in order to create your very own super superhero? That was fun. Clearly, mashing things together is something we’ve been doing since childhood, and Argentinian art director Alexandre Tissier hasn’t lost his touch. Pictured are his renditions of what some pop culture characters would look like if they were mashed together and turned into a LEGO Minifig. Homer and The Wolverine as a mining? Behold ‘Homerine’. James Bond with Spiderman? ‘Spider Bond’, of course.

It’s for a fake ad campaign, and it’s not a product, or anything. Just Alexandre having some fun. We thought you might enjoy.

LEGO Super Mario Bros. Floor Lamp Can Be Your For A Princely Sum

il_fullxfull.638280264_q2sr

Everything in life comes at a price. The price you pay for not having the patience or the skill to build a magnificent 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square Super Mario Bros. floor lamp is an outrageous $2,200(USD). And let’s be honest, you know that if you had that kind of disposable income, you’d be it yesterday. Right?

This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

It’s made by Etsy seller PugsnLegos, who fortunately has other similar (but smaller) items for sale at more reasonable prices.

Use It, Don’t Brick It: LEGO Flash Drive

LEGO USB

The long wait is over: the official Lego flash drive is finally here. Sure, modders and DIY-ers have made their own equally awesome Lego-inspired USB drives over the years. But the same can’t be said for the lazy, Lego-loving geeks who don’t have the knowhow or are just too lazy to make their own.

The fully-licensed Lego flash drive looks like several plates were stacked one on top of the other. The coolest part? You can use it like a regular brick and stack whatever you want onto it to make it truly your own.

The Lego flash drive is available in a variety of colors and capacities. Prices for 16GB start at $12.99, and it comes with a bonus Lego brick to boot.
