A giant lego machine which builds a small lego airplane. A 10 min video of lego building lego... I couldn't make it through without fast-forwarding, but as a lego enthusiast, I was intrigued by the way the assorted pieces were provided to the machine and moved along to the final creation.

Grey goo death in block form. Millennia from now the aliens who find the remnants of our planet are going to have some bad ass toy sets to bring home to their kids.

This is fantastic! Of course, it's very complicated and would take a long time to make another of these. Perhaps if there was some sort of factory-assembling machine... that could make copies of itself.

There is something algorithymicaly SkyNettian about this.

I am absolutely not worried about this possibility. Among the many things my brother and I made from Lego when we were kids were some rubber band-powered cannons that could blow apart any possible assembly of Lego bricks. We have the technology to defeat them!

Pffft. I want to see it function properly after Anakin, Padme and R2D2 have destroyed most of the convey belt system. Lego and Light saber do not mix.
