🛠 LEGO - DIY - OPEN SOURCE - For 280 euros : IBM/MicroscoPy: An open-source, motorized, and modular microscope built using LEGO bricks, Arduino, Raspberry Pi and 3D printing.

by decembre (via)
Comment fabriquer un microscope en LEGO ? Yuksel Temiz un scientifique travaillant pour IBM en avait assez des images de merde produites par le microscope de son laboratoire. Il a alors entrepris de fabriquer son propre microscope motorisé à l’aide de LEGOs, d’un Raspberry Pi, d’une caméra Rpi 8 Megapixels, d’un écran Rpi et d’une imprimante 3D. L’équivalent de ce genre de microscope dans le commerce coûte plusieurs milliers d’euros. Son projet, lui, ne vous coutera que 280 euros, ce qui est quand même une sacrée économie. Ce microscope baptisé MicroscoPy permet de prendre des photos haute résolution d’objets aussi petits que des puces d’ordinateur, soit environ 10 microns (1 micro c’est 1/100e de millimètres). Il est destiné à la photographie macro mais également à l’imagerie biologique ou peut être utilisé comme microscope ou pour faire de la mesure d’angles. Et le plus beau là-dedans, c’est qu’il a mis les plans sous licence libre sur le net. Cela veut dire que n’importe qui dans le monde peut, à moindres frais posséder un microscope d’une qualité professionnelle. C’est vraiment cool ! Tous les plans, les fichiers STL (pour la 3D), les logiciels et les étapes de fabrication sont ici.

Edible and Stackable DIY LEGO Gummy Candy | Colossal

by sbrothier
Grant Thompson of the King of Random just shared a great tutorial on how to make completely edible gummy LEGO bricks and figures using a mixture of corn syrup, Jello, and gelatin. Using the right molds, the pieces are so precise you can actually build with them. Unlike the chocolate LEGO bricks we featured a few months ago, these look somewhat simple to make.

Through it all I am continually struck with how amazing the LEGO system is as a medium for building, well, pretty much anything you can imagine.

Edible Chocolate LEGOs by Akihiro Mizuuchi | Colossal

by sbrothier
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs. It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together. If you google around there are numerous attempts at creating various forms of LEGO in chocolate or other food, but this appears to be the most detailed and well-designed of anything out there.

LDraw™ is an open standard for LEGO CAD programs that allow the user to create virtual LEGO models and scenes. You can use it to document models you have physically built, create building instructions just like LEGO, render 3D photo realistic images of your virtual models and even make animations.

by sbrothier (via)
An update to my classic minifigure model. This edition is similar to the Space Marines, and has a number of incremental updates to the older file, like: A Cycles material and render setup, complete with a re-usable 3-point lighting setup. Improved rigging with greater intuitive control. Some minor poly reworking to remove glitches. A cute little scene.
