LEGO is obliged to release such a constructor. Every detail is a microcomputer with a screen

New Zealand engineer James Brown showed a homemade designer, which was based on LEGO parts. He printed the parts on a 3D printer, equipping them with electronic stuffing and battery power.


To make the designer, Brown used a translucent resin. Inside the parts is a Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller, 16 KB flash memory, a 0.42-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 72 × 40 pixels, and a USB power connector. With the help of special contacts, the parts can be connected to the base in which the battery is placed to power them.

Due to the wide programming possibilities, such a constructor can be used for various purposes – for example, for games, education, creating robots, and the like. The engineer is not going to patent his invention, fearing a lawsuit with LEGO due to copyright infringement on the design of the parts, but does not exclude that he will create sets commissioned by friends. According to The VergeLEGO fans are now begging the company to release a similar set.
