LEGO Relativity

M.C. Escher's "Relativity" - the LEGO version!

Go here to see how they did it.

This is the sort of thing I always thought would be cool to make with LEGOs as a little kid, before I realized that my undersea base set didn't include the right pieces (what am I really going to do with this plastic seahorse holding a harpoon?) You know, like the magnetic locking things, LEDs, bricks with studs pointing in multiple directions (clearly used in this model), etc. Now, if you look at LEGOs in the store, you see a Harry Potter set that snaps together with only three pieces. Like Playmobil. LEGO never made enough "creative" sets in which they just give you a lot of cool, useful bricks in colors other than royal blue and fire engine red, and let you provide the imagination.

Well done, here!
