Fully-Functional Lego Car Unveiled
Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida have built a functional car, yes your heard me right, car out of Legos that runs on air. No fuel necessary! It’s part of their crowdfunded Super Awesome Micro Project. The car is made up of 500,000 Lego bricks and 256 pistons. It’s made entirely of the Legos aside from the tires, wheels, and gauges. What’s the dollar amount on the Legos alone? A whopping $60,000 worth. That’s a lot of Legos. The car was built in Romania and then shipped to Melbourne, Australia.. It wasn’t an easy trip for the Legomobile as it incurred a lot of damage during the travel. However, the duo managed to piece it back together, even though it required a little more than snapping Legos back in place.
