Fantasy Friday: Life Size LEGO Car

SAMP-Josh-Rowe-3907-1024x682

Super Awesome Micro Project, also known as the one-of-a-kind LEGO car, was created by Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida who met via cyberspace. This marketing guru and self-taught tech genius had a vision for a vehicle made entirely out of LEGO blocks (with the exception of wheels and such) that was able to drive with the help of a LEGO engine meant to run on air.

But before they were able to bring their idea into fruition, they had to find a few sponsors to fund the massively creative project. And so came the infamous tweet sent out by Steve:

The project was steeped in mystery from the very beginning. Ranging from all of the interested patrons being sent a pretend business prospectus (that you can now find HERE) to the car being built in Romania and shipped to a top-secret local in Melbourne, Australia. But, despite the quirky nature of the project, the car was created with over 500,000 LEGO pieces in the style of a Hot Rod!  The only down side? It’s speed is the exact opposite of a Hot Rod and tops at about 20-30km, which Steve and Raul attribute to their fear of a LEGO explosion if the car moved too fast.

So check out the clip of the LEGO Hot Rod below:
