There were many things growing up that got our attention as children. Shiny things, loud things, things with wheels, knobs, buttons, and so forth. That said, only one toy could truly capture our imagination and creativity—LEGO. So simple, yet so brilliant. Our love of building with LEGO hasn’t died, and by the looks of it, we aren’t the only ones with a soft spot for the bricks. We've just found a compilation of ten amazing LEGO machines that really work. Our favorite is posted above, but if you wanna see the other 9 designs (and you should!) hit the source link below.

We love those Lego gadgets and couldn’t pass this one up. About 4,500 people that comprise the Hong Kong Lego User Group were so inspired by the Beijing Olympics that they created their own version. The mini-tribute measures 10 x 26 ft. and took over 300,000 bricks. Included are the Birds’ Nest Stadium, the Water Cube aquatic center (inside and out,) equestrians, cyclists, ping pong, and beach volleyball. It was recently on display at the Grand Century Palace in Hong Kong. We think it should go on tour. More pictures available via the link of the Daily Mail.

We remember going to Legoland a few years back and noticed that adults played with the blocks as much as the kidlets. (They are placed at the various restaurants in the park.) We are amazed at all of the genuine artists that continue to work with Legos and Rubik’s Cubes to make creations. Check out this collection that is incredibly impressive. Designs vary from the Rubik’s puzzle to Zach Clapsadle’s amazing LEGO Steam Machines.

This Guitar Hero controller for Playstation 2 made out of Legos is not only very kewl looking, it is actually functional. Created by David McNeely (aka Blue Star Legos,) it is the third guitar he has made and is modeled after a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz 4-string bass. Its innards come out of a standard GH guitar and the strum bar was made out of Technic parts. It took four days to make and we just hope he had sense enough to add some heavy-duty glue to the instrument, in case he gets carried away. You can see all the details on his Flickr page.
