A little over a year ago, a 20-year-old Romanian guy named Raul Oaida took on the task of building a functioning car almost entirely out of Lego blocks, designed by Steve Sammartino in Melbourne, Australia.
And he did.
It’s a lot nicer than the ones we build.
Via online crowdfunding, the two men raised about $22,000 for the “Super Awesome Micro Project” and, using more than 500,000 Lego pieces, built a full-size Lego hot rod that uses a compressed air-powered Lego engine to propel the vehicle to just under 20 miles-per-hour.
It’s not likely to win any races, but, if this is the first time you’re seeing it, you’ve got to give it style points.
