Technical LEGOŽ

Add to my favorite builders )

The most important things in life I learned from my dogs. Most of the rest I learned by screwing up.

Thanks for dropping by!

Most of the MOCs here are working gizmos born of a fascination with gadgets and the science and engineering behind them. Technical LEGOŽ -- my term for this kind of building, with an emphasis on on Technic, Power Functions, and Mindstorms elements -- brings out my inner inventor/designer/engineer like no other medium.

Warning: My write-ups are way too long. I know it. I can't help it. So please feel free to look over any or all of the images and ignore the verbiage.



As you'll see with my Little Black Tank (below), my UniStand, and many other MOCs, I also enjoy cooking up back stories.



Of the scientific MOCs, I think the working 1:12 Mars Science Laboratory rover (aka Curiosity) below is by far the best.



Technical LEGOŽ gives me a chance to operate decent simulations of real machines (like the mining truck below) that my wife would never allow in the house or anywhere near it.



Hence, functional realism usually gets top priority, though I always pay attention to looks as well.

Much of 2014 and 2015 went to designing and building fast, seaworthy Power Functions powerboats like Trident below. She's my 3rd fastest and most improbable boat, the 2nd fastest being Nadine.



I also had a hand in Radio Flyer, winner of the boat drag races at BrickWorld 2015.

Other recurring themes of late all seem to involve high-speed rotary motion. These include (i) propeller-driven carts like MPC3 below, (ii) a 0.85 watt wind turbine, (iii) a wide variety of spinning tops, (iv) a 2-DOF gyro, and (v) a series of flying LEGOŽ rotors and launchers.



Asteroid below is one of my better-looking tops.



The pattern-forming sliding-tile sketchpads like the Truchet tiler below move a lot more slowly, but they do move -- or at least the tiles do.



Every once in a while, I even allow myself to build something that doesn't move at all, like the Tug-in-a-Jug below. OK, OK, the water moves when you shake the bottle.



My work owes a great deal to the folks on my list of favorite builders. Their imagination and ingenuity never cease to amaze.

Hope you'll stay tuned, as I still have many more MOCs to post.

Folders

Some of these MOCs really belong in more than one folder, but MOCpages doesn't support that. So, if you find something of interest in one folder, you may well find similar MOCs in others.

Inside some of the folders:
Topped Out: Many different hand and power tops and (soon) a working 2-DOF gyroscope.
Motorized Boats and Ships: Working Power Functions boats, mostly built for speed.
Wind Power: Working propeller-driven carts and a 0.85W wind turbine.
Patterns from Tiles: Pattern-forming sliding-tile sketchpads.
Scientific MOCs: MOCs inspired by real science.
Machines and Gizmos: Includes a working floating-arm trebuchet.
Gears Gone Wild: Illustrated tutorials on gearing and axle support and reinforcement.
