EverBlock: Customize your Space With Oversized Modular Lego Bricks

September 2, 2015

Giant LEGOs for adults? Heck. Yes. EverBlock is a modular building system of giant plastic blocks that can be used to build anything from furniture, walls, shelving, bars, and even entire rooms. Obsessed with LEGO bricks as a child, EverBlock founder Arnon Rosan realized there might be a demand for a functional full-scale building system for personal and industrial purposes.

The bricks are available in three brick types that come in 15 different colors, and the good news is this isn’t just a concept, they’re available for purchase now. For interior designers or the spatially indecisive, this seems like a pretty great way to customize your space. (via Wired)

Edible and Stackable DIY LEGO Gummy Candy

May 25, 2015

Christopher Jobson

Grant Thompson of the King of Random just shared a great tutorial on how to make completely edible gummy LEGO bricks and figures using a mixture of corn syrup, Jello, and gelatin. Using the right molds, the pieces are so precise you can actually build with them. Unlike the chocolate LEGO bricks we featured a few months ago, these look somewhat simple to make.

While we’ve seen everyone’s favorite plastic building brick turned into chocolate, retro toy sculptures and street art, we haven’t seen too many fashion accessories. Poland-based Agabag have set about to change that with their huge array of handbags and jewelry encased in official LEGO bricks. They have shops both on their website as well as on Etsy.

Watch as Lego enthusiast Jon Rolph deftly recreates a Piet Mondrian using stop-motion animation. While it may seem like a pretty straightforward idea, the attention to detail here is astounding, even PES was impressed. (via Stellar)

A few years ago we mentioned LEGO and bird enthusiast Thomas Poulsom who designed a beautiful series of LEGO bird specimens. Poulsom submitted his concept to LEGO Ideas, and enough people voted to turn the birds into an official kit that includes his blue jay, robin, and humming bird models. The bird sets went on sale a few hours ago. (via Laughing Squid)

Update: Whoa, it looks like the kits sold out in the process of me writing this, but you can still order for delivery within 30 days.

Edible Chocolate LEGOs by Akihiro Mizuuchi

Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs. It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together. If you google around there are numerous attempts at creating various forms of LEGO in chocolate or other food, but this appears to be the most detailed and well-designed of anything out there.
