I WANT THAAAT!!!!! – A Lego built, paper plane factory

And people say Lego is dying and as this video shows….It is well and truly alive!!!!

So alive in fact that it is starting to do things we humans used to do…and I for one can not be happier. Lego bricks have evolved from children’s toy to artist’s tool. But Brazilian designer Arthur Sacek took the interlocking pieces to new heights when he built an autonomous paper-airplane-folding machine.

Commissioned by Elevation Digital Media and Arrow Electronics for a Super Bowl 50 commercial, the contraption was built over five days, using 4,000 pieces (including Lego Mindstorms intelligent bricks) and lots of paper.

As Gizmodo pointed out, Sacek is not the first Lego paper airplane maker, but it certainly appears to be the most reliable.

Watching this machine do it’s thing is mesmerizing and therapeutic to me and I think most of you will agree…

Below is a behind the scenes look at this Lego marvel…
