A thread about #Lego, including a live build 🤓 👇

I grew up loving the stuff, from ages 3(?) to perhaps 15, from duplo blocks to cutting edge Technic. I credit Lego in part for my deep love of STEM topics.

As an adult, I've started playing it again with my own kids (1/n)
About 3 years ago, I bought the Lego Saturn V to decorate my home office. 🚀

Because #Lego + Space. No more explanation needed.

Amazing, amazing build!!

You can really appreciate the engineering in this one. Highly recommended if you can get hold of a set.

(2/n)
Recently I finished a few big work projects so it was time I built another set.

Lego absorbs your mind fully and so is a great way to distract yourself during this pandemic.

With Lego, you're in control and you enjoy the process and the outcome.

The new Hidden Side fire truck was my favorite Hidden Side set to design so far! With it releasing soon, I thought it would be cool to share some of my process on this set. Here are my initial quick sketches from January 2019. #LEGO
First off, some development pics on the truck. This is the first version I built of this final direction we ended up going with. It showed a lot of potential to make for a fantastic toy. Sadly, there was an incredible amount of structural issues to resolve.
A mech on the back meant very little space for the structure for the wheels. If a kid were to push down on the truck with all their might, it could not buckle. The back also had to look good without the mech. On the final set you can see how I tried my best to fill all the space.

#nw Playmobil - Der Film (2019)

Man muss ja wissen, was die Konkurrenz macht. Wird in den ersten 3 Minuten schon gesungen. Und er ist direkt auf Englisch produziert. Und das Live Action Intro nervt hart. Kann ja nur besser werden. Hoffentlich...
Und erstmal direkt nach der guten Laune Musiknummer ordentlich die Eltern killen. Schlimmer als bei Disney. Ich wunder mich nicht, dass der Film gefloppt ist 😅 #playmobil
Nicht, dass es beim #LEGO Movie anders war. Der war auch ein 2 Std Werbespot fürs Spielzeug. Da ging's aber um Phantasie und was man damit macht. Im #Playmobil Film ist das Spielzeug besser ausgeleuchtet als die Charaktere. Und bis zum CGI Part dauerts ne Viertelstunde...

Promised thing for the 10,000 followers, here is a long thread devoted to the Y-Wing. It will also be my last long thread here, being frustrated by the limitations of Twitter.

Enjoy it, especially since it literally took days of research and work 🥳
BTL Y-wing, starfighter-bomber - Star Wars (George Lucas, 1977)
Manufactured by Koensayr Manufacturing, the Y-Wing is a multi-roles starfighter, but mainly a bomber. During his long career (we can now see the Clone Wars to Episode IX, almost 60 years), it has seen many models. We will focus on the best known.

I have more pics and tips from my “birthday project”, a modular #LEGO dungeon scenics set designed for #TheFantasyTrip. If you missed Part 1, you can find the thread collected here.
threadreaderapp.com/thread/1158142…
For this new version, I’ve finished texturing the wall sections and painting the doorways. I also have some construction detail pics and notes on construction variations. Here’s the Black Baron and his friend Leo (aka “Tin Hat”) entering the first room.
I’m going for something easy to construct on the fly from pre-assembled components, with a nice balance of playability and appearance. Half-height walls are one of the decisions I made early.

On my 65th birthday a few days ago, I decided I’d devote some time this weekend to a “birthday project” - a creative effort just for me. I’ve been playing with ideas for a modular #LEGO dungeon designed for #TheFantasyTrip. Here’s where I am so far.
Designing in LEGO for a hex board is challenging. LEGO does not lend itself 60 degree angles easily. Hinged bricks and plates left offsets I found difficult to work with. I found two parts that were really helpful.
The smaller plates would be covered by the 1 brick thick walls allowing the walls to sit flat on a megahex mat, but I went with the bigger ones once I came up with the idea of putting a “false floor” in the rooms.

#Pumpy paper is out @NatureComms - "Automating Multimodal Microscopy with NanoJ-Fluidics"! We developed an open-source inexpensive #LEGO-based fluidics system that can be coupled to a microscope to achieve high-performance imaging nature.com/articles/s4146…
We created video abstract with @LaineBioImaging and @christlet that quickly explains paper. #Pumpy enables live-to-fixed imaging, fixation-on-event, super-resolution sequential-labelling (unlim. number protein species), it adds a new dimension to what’s possible at the microscope
@LaineBioImaging @christlet @palmada86 @P_Matos_Pereira did an excellent job making #Pumpy happen. An excellent collaboration with the Charras, @BaumBuzz and @christlet labs. Kudos to @christlet, despite the distance we interacted almost on a daily basis getting the paper together

It's #InternationalLegoClassicismDay! So, to celebrate, here's the story of the first Ugaritic text to be discovered, via the medium of Lego. #ILCD2019 #Lego
In 1929 a farm labourer at Minet el-Beida on the coast of what's now Syria struck a stone while ploughing a field. It was part of a bronze age chamber tomb. #ILCD2019
Soon the French mandate's archaeologists descended on the site and on the tell of Ras Shamra just inland. They were led by Claude Schaeffer, who would oversee work there for decades to come. #ILCD2019

This is an abstract of a 10 year career in tech.

The odds were never in my favor, specially to work with technology.

When I was a kid I wanted a SNES, dad said no, it's a boy's toy.

I was always good with math, but when I wanted Lego as a gift, they gave me barbies.
Then I managed to join a really good High School. For each opening I had to compete with another 30 people to get in. I got in, but failed on 2nd year.

Then the teachers striked for 3 months in one year and 2 months in another. No way to finish my last year in time
That's when I got my 1st PC. At 18yo.

Then, I managed while on the last year, to get a scholarship for a preparatory course for college, my odds were 25 to 1.

I managed! Electrical Engineering at top school!
