Now this is genius. Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing guy Steve Sammartino (@sammartino) and Raul Oaida (@rauloaida), a 20-year-old self-taught technology genius from Romania who Steve met on the internet built a car made of Legos, that drives, and has an engine made from Lego which runs on air.
Super Awesome Micro Project Facts:
More than 500,000 LEGO pieces were used.
The car engine is made from standard Lego pieces and runs on air!
The engine has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.
Top speed is not very fast, around 20-30km (We were scared of a lego explosion so we drove it slowly)
It was built in Romania and shipped to a secret location in suburban Melbourne.
It’s a Hot Rod design, mainly because hot rods are cool.
He crowd funded the project via tweet.
