Someone a lot more creative than I am used the Lego Mindstorms kit to build a Lego-based CD changer that takes a digital photo of the dance floor and changes the music if there is no one dancing. Amazing stuff.
Dave (no last name I could find) has finished a complete medieval town built out of Legos, which looks nice.
Even more amazing is Anthony Sava’s extensive Lego sets for his Kingdom of Ikros site.
I am about to get started on a huge multimedia project that’s going to eventually involve a Lego set-up something along these lines, and these two pages have a lot of great ideas for medieval/fantasy Lego getups.
Ever wanted an excellent tutorial on using Photoshop to enhance the look of your Lego photos? Sure you have. Find it here.
Wired has a good profile of Eric Harshbarger, Lego creator extraordinaire. The article, The Michelangelo of Lego, was apparently inspired by the stories circulating around the Internet of Harshbarger designing and building a fully functional desk made entirely out of Legos (35,000 of them) for some temperamental employee at a dot.com company (I can just imagine my boss’s face if I demanded a desk made out of Legos!)
I thought I was something of a Lego fanatic, but I am not even in the same universe as Harshbarger.
