Check Out This Full-Scale, Air-Powered LEGO Hot Rod
Here at HYPEBEAST, we’re pretty fascinated by the extent to which LEGO blocks can be used, whether it’s to recreate classical paintings, an X-Wing Starfighter weighing 45,000 lbs, or some of the world’s greatest examples of architecture. We never thought however, that it could possibly build a totally functional, full-scale hot-rod! Melbourne-based entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and 20-year-old Romanian genius Raul Oaida came together to build a LEGO hot-rod that’s powered exclusively with air. Comprised of more than half a million bricks, the engine itself consists of four orbital motors and 256 pistons to reach a speed of 30 km/h.
