Lego Bugatti

Lego’s Tech team built this is a 1:1-scale Bugatti Chiron using mostly standard pieces (excepting a few special pieces to replicate functions from the actual car)

Lego Bugatti Chiron by the numbers:

  • 13,000 work hours
  • Over one million pieces
  • 339 different types of Lego pieces, traditionally snapped together  (no glue)
  • 1 really cool pneumatically powered variable spoiler
  • 2,304 Lego Power Functions L-Motors (the same ones that power the Lego toys)
  • Top speed of 18 mph

And details? The replica features the same startup lighting sequence as the original car.

Why? To show that they can.

For the science behind the feat watch this brief clip.

Cheers!

Hi-Tech Car Theft Prevention

This home cam in video, shared with the Police, shows how clever car theft has become. One crook waves a repeater around the front door, where he presumes the keys are hung safely within. The repeater sends the keyless entry signal to the a paired device, held near the car door. The car interprets the signal as the arriving owner and unlocks the car.

One solution: An RFID blocking sleeve.

Better still, keep your keys by the nightstand:  the panic/alarm button can serve as a  deterrent to break-in / home invasion.

 

Cheers (and be safe)
