Original Google Storage Server Made with Legos!

It’d be hard to believe but yes, Sergey Brin and Larry Page made their first 40GB Google Storage Server with lego casing.  Perhaps they might have been great lego-designers if they didn’t come up with Google.

The development of the Google algorithms was carried on on a variety of Computers, mainly provided by the NSF-DARPA-NASA-funded Digital Library project at Stanford. Click to see the equipment in its laboratory setting on the basement floor of Gates Information Sciences. Crawling the web to obtain its link structure required an eno

Lego Sushi Makes Sushi-Geeks Drool!

Here’s a perfect set of lego sushi, all definitely authentic except you probably won’t be able to dip it in real soy sauce.

Here’s milkscanner, a 3D scanner that gets each slice of the 3D scan with a spoon drop of milk!

Did you say Lego Batmobile, Batman, and Robin???

That’s right, we said it. Batmobile, Batman, AND Robin is here in LEGO style.

Care to replicate them yourself? Or maybe you can print out the pics and hand them to your kids.

wow, great achievement by the kid with legos, just be careful…

This deathtoy is built complete from Lego bricks, except for a “piece of string” and refill bottle of butane. And you thought Legos were just a choking hazard. When the Gizmodo staff goes postal, this will definitely be our weapon of choice. Hit the jump for 7 seconds of the sweetest video you’ve ever seen…today…unless
