“Macaroni LEGO” is what happens when I forget to stir the pot as my pasta boils. /s


I love “Bending Bricks” – pure black magic what that guy does.

This is brilliant and beautiful stuff. It applies well to biochemistry and biology, as illustrating emergent properties: Simple, rigid geometric pieces combine to form complex structures, and at the higher levels we see properties emerge (flexibility, even elasticity) which the component structures lack.

I see a direct application of this in re-sizeable wheels for the next Mars or moon rover. All kinds of things foldin’ like that, but the nice part here is that’s all build from one type of block. I suppose that’s nice from an engineering POV, too.

Re: what @Fef said:
Can someone please start building a synthetic life form based on a small number of base Lego bricks? I’d rather like to see that. Ought to be better than Strandbeests.
