Order Bulk Parts With The LEGO LUGBULK Program
Posted by Richard on July 24, 2015 at 09:27 PM CST:
I had the opportunity to listen to Kevin Hinkle talk about a few interesting programs at Brick Universe back in March. I've been trying to track down links to this information, and finally dug up Hinkle's business card to ask him where it was. Its a little too minifigure shaped to fit most conventional wallets, so I managed to misplace it. One of those programs is the LUGBULK, which gives LEGO® User Groups one chance a year to submit bulk orders at a discount. It may be worth your time to check out the local LUGs to join and see if you can participate. Here's a PDF link containing details of the program. Forum link.

IdentiToy Unveils Its IdentiBricks Technology, Seeks Developers
Posted by Richard on July 14, 2015 at 09:12 AM CST:
I received an email from the company earlier this week describing a photosensitive electronic component in the shape of a brick, which relays positional data it reads from a touch screen back to the tablet. Its still in development, and they would like to get developers on board with the technology. You can see a demonstration here of the tech in action.

Ume University Turns Young Amputees Into LEGO Cyborgs
Posted by Richard on July 10, 2015 at 11:14 PM CST:
A gentleman at Ume University in Sweden has designed a prosthesis system compatible with LEGO® technic elements. I'm hoping this design is more than a proof of concept, as it seems like it could have an infinite amount of practical use on top of the entertainment value. Forum link.

Firepower Over Fireworks, Happy Fourth Of July!

It may not be red white and blue (The bulldozer I bought for the parts doesn't come that way), but I hope my functional RC tank MoC is patriotic enough to make up for it.

LEGO Bricks To Change Shape
Posted by Richard on June 27, 2015 at 06:10 PM CST:
One of my employers informed me the LEGO® brick will be receiving an overhaul soon, according to a news report she saw. She tells me the redesign should use less plastic and hopefully have less of an environmental impact. I'm trying to hunt down the video she referenced, (unfortunately the words "LEGO®", "Brick" and "Redesign" along with any combination of words I can think of are not helping me in search engines.), if you have a link to such a video please send it my way. Forum link.
