I’ve spent a very good chunk of my life piecing collectively varied LEGO initiatives… however even the craziest stuff I’ve constructed pales compared to this. It’s a completely functioning pinball machine constructed solely out of official LEGO elements, from the obstacles on the playfield, to the digital brains behind the scenes, to the metal ball itself.
Creator Bre Burns calls her masterpiece “Benny’s House Journey,” theming the machine round LEGO’s basic ‘lil blue space man. It’s made up of greater than 15,000 LEGO bricks, a number of Mindstorms NXT brains working in unison, metal castor balls borrowed from a Mindstorms package, plus lights and motors repurposed from a bunch of different units. Bre initially got down to construct the venture for exhibition on the LEGO fan convention BrickCon in October of final 12 months, and it’s simply grown and grown ever since.
Bre informed the LEGO-enthusiast website Brothers Brick that she’s spent someplace between 200 and 300 hours to this point on this venture. Wish to know extra? They’ve bought an excellent breakdown of the whole venture right over here.
