Even if you played with LEGOs as a kid, you probably never made anything as impressive as this:

LEGO Go-Kart

Called the MEGLug, it’s a full-sized go-kart made entirely of LEGOs, using MINDSTORMS to both power and control the vehicle.

Notable features include 48 MINDSTORMS NXT motors providing 100% of the power, working head and tail lights, a four-point safety belt, and a bottle holder, all made of LEGOs.

…Legos can keep your valuables safe?

Lego Safe

If you don’t mind the idea of storing your valuables inside of a bunch of plastic bits and pieces, then the Lego NXT Safe might be the way to go for a DIY security solution.

Features include 6.5 kilograms of weight, a 7 centimeter thick door opened via a motorized lock, internal safety bars to prevent the walls from being disassembled, 30 liters of internal storage space, a burglar alarm activated by an acceleration sensor, and a five double digit security code entered through a directional sensitive dial, giving you more than 305 billion possible codes to unlock the door, so that unless you let the code slip after a few too many at the bar, the chances of someone guessing your code are pretty slim.
