LEGO Technical Sculptures
LEGO Tokamak Model in Scientific American - RF Cafe Cool PicWhen LEGO blocks were first introduced in their current form in Denmark in the late1940s, founder Godfred Kirk Christiansen could not have imagined how wildly popular his "toy" would become with sculptors. That generations of kids would while away hours at a time building original and predesigned structures per printed instructions were his realized dream, Godfred (may I call him Godfred?) would be in awe over how his creation has been applied from professional and amateur artists. The June 2012 issue of Scientific American has an article titled "Fusion's Missing Pieces" on the current state of nuclear fusion, and with it is a photo of a cut-away view of a tokomak made entirely of LEGOs by Sachiko Akinaga (click thumbnail above for more pics). Do a Google search on "lego art" and be amazed at what is out there. "lego robotics" turns up hundreds of often sophisticated microprocessor-controlled machines. Try it on just about any subject, be it engineering, science, chemistry, mathematics, industry, aerospace, automobiles, architecture, or electronics and be amazed at the skill of people. You might find something that will make a good cover photo for your next PowerPoint presentation (be sure to give attribution to the creator). LEGO is a contraction conceived of by Christiansen from the Danish phrase "leg godt," meaning "play well."

See the 1/2-scale LEGO Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 gas turbine engine.
