Now, that has change to become very improved technologically, some LEGO kits are able to provide internet connectivity, powerful processors, Micro SD card slots, and Wi-Fi USB slots. Young minds are inspired by the kits to incorporate parts from several kits and creation of many unique machines using engineering skills.
Check out these 10 awesome LEGO machines that were created by LEGO enthusiasts and displayed on Youtube.
1. Plotter/ Printer
This machine is able to draw simple forms like rectangles and triangles using a pencil attached above.
2. 3D Printer
This cool machine is able to create different shapes from floral foam. 3D meshes are loaded to the milling machine via Autodesk Softimage. The foam is then processed by the drill (non-Lego part). The machine is able to create images of human faces as a final result after almost two and a half hours of processing.
