The first shows the bricks mixing or redirecting the flow of liquid with a simple realignment of the bricks. The next shows how the bricks could hold an LED light and a battery.</p> <p>This same team of Harvard researchers is already working on a crawling, tentacled soft robot sponsored by DARPA. The robot should be to change size as needed to fit into tighter spaces and even heal itself of damage. What a surprise, MILITARY applications. Really, who would have thought it? That&rsquo;s where your inflatable Lego comes from, folks.</p> <p>We can still delight ourselves (a scarce few seconds from the constant preoccupation on the hubris of man) in the possibility of inflatable Lego toys. Maybe we could build all those houses and gardens and then walk into them and play in them? They would be very child-safe too since they&rsquo;re so soft to fall on.

Users can submit designs for new models and, should their idea gain enough backers on the site, Lego will consider adapting it into a real-life retail package. The company has a &ldquo;blacklist&rdquo; of popular franchises it won&rsquo;t accept submissions for; Doctor Who used to be on the list, because the BBC had licensed the rights to produce Lego-style construction sets to Character Building. But now Lego&#39;s reached an agreement that&#39;ll let users submit Doctor Who designs.</p> <p>So far we&rsquo;ve seen successful Cuusoo campaigns for a <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/lego/back-future-lego-set-becomes-official/news" target="_blank">Back to the Future DeLorean</a>, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/lego/fully-charged-lego-ghostbusters-are-official-hidden-treasures-spotify-and-70mph-little-tikes-ho" target="_blank">Ghostbusters</a> and the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/lego/mars-curiosity-rover-gets-its-own-lego-set/news" target="_blank">Mars Curiosity Rover</a>.</p> <p><strong>[Source: <a href="https://legocuusoo.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/325064-license-conflicts-and-resolutions" target="_blank">Cuusoo</a> via <a href="http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/02/25/lego-now-accepting-doctor-who-designs-for-their-cuusoo-projects/" target="_blank">Bleeding Cool</a>]</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Carbon wearable solar charger: a “watch” that tops up your phone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="399" scrolling="no" src="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/875790568/carbon-wearable-solar-charger/widget/video.html" width="532"></iframe></p> <p>Another week, another brilliant Kickstarter idea pops up on the radar.

But it&rsquo;s a seriously handy piece of gear: its creators say it can deliver up to three extra hours of web browsing or talk time to a smartphone.</p> <p>Pledge US$95 (RM315) or more and, if the Carbon campaign proves successful, you&rsquo;ll receive your own charger around August of this year. The campaign is seeking US$48,000 (RM157,320) with 30 days left to go.</p> <p><strong>[Source: <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/875790568/carbon-wearable-solar-charger" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a>]</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/lego/fully-charged-doctor-who-lego-and-solar-charger-you-wear-your-wrist/news#comments Lego Virgin Media Thu, 27 Feb 2014 22:22:12 +0000 Elissa Loi 1433092 at http://www.stuff.tv Minifigure masterpieces: 10 of the best lego movies http://www.stuff.tv/my/lego/minifigure-masterpieces-10-best-lego-movies/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> When you breathe life into Lego, something magical happens... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="878" height="658" title="Best Lego Movies" alt="Best Lego Movies" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/lego-gears-of-war.png?1392823101" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Lego movie is upon us and we can&#39;t wait to settle in and watch our colourful blocky dreams come to life on the glorious silver screen.</p> <p>To celebrate, we&#39;ve trawled through the interwebs looking for some of the best stop motion Lego movies to treat ourselves to, so sit back and feast your eyes on these delightful mini-masterpieces:</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/esat-dedezade" title="View user profile.">Esat Dedezade</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Felix Baumgartner&#039;s Lego space jump </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Felix Baumgartner is the crazy Austrian fellow who dived back down to Earth from 24 miles above its surface, and this brave little Lego pilot manages to achieve the same feat.

Projects posted here, should they gain enough users votes and survive a formal review by Lego, can go from being mere pipe dreams to actual products, and that&rsquo;s what happened here: the project was submitted way back in 2011, and 10,000-odd votes later it&rsquo;s going to be available for US$30 (RM99).</p> <p>Particularly interesting is the fact that the set&rsquo;s designer, mechanical engineer Stephen Pakbaz, actually worked for NASA on the Curiosity project. So you know it&rsquo;s going to be pretty accurate.</p> <p>Come New Year&rsquo;s Day, you&rsquo;ll be able to purchase the set from Lego&rsquo;s online store.
