MakerLegoBot: A 3D LEGO Meta-Printer


Yes please! MakerLegoBot is a 3D printer made of LEGO bricks that can print LEGO bricks using LEGO bricks — so meta it’ll make your head spin and your inner geek swoon. Here, watch it construct a simple LEGO house, printed directly from a computer model.

Clearly inspired by the fabulous MakerBot, needless to say.
