Every Christmas of my life I’ve found Legos either under the tree or in my stocking. My daughter is finally old enough to play Legos with me and I am enjoying the experience as much as ever. Legos have come a long way since my childhood; from Star Wars to Super Heroes and Technic to Duplo Legos cover a wide range of interests and ages.
One of my projects over the summer was creating an annual report for LEGO. While researching LEGO I discovered a new product they recently rolled out. A set of 1210 white and translucent pieces and no instruction book. Imaginations can run wild but if inspiration is lacking the kit does include a 250 page book of LEGO experiments. Try the LEGO store to get one. I haven’t been this excited about Legos in years, but a 1200+ piece box of Legos designed to be designed by users sounds like fun to me.
Outside of Austin, in a supposedly worthless piece of land is an amazing house. Bercy Chen designed a house embedded into the ground to help regulate the temperature in the house and allow the field to thrive. Appropriately the owner of the house is a science fiction author.
