The Amazing LEGO Axle Sorter

Recommended Posts

I once tried to sort my LEGO bricks, but I never really got around to finishing. Now, LEGO engineer Akiyuki, who brought us the "Great Ball Contraption", amazes us again with his "LEGO Axle Sorter". The ingenious contraption accurately sorts axles dumped into it by size. What's even cooler is that it appears so simple after you've seen it. You can check out a video of the machine in action over here.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5909]View the full article[/url]

I always wonder the amount of dedication it takes to be able to produce such intricate mechanisms from mere plastic. Simply amazing work


And now that I think about it, if he just creates a big enough bucket, he could dump all his axles in that machine in the morning, and come back at lunch and his whole collection is sorted, all while he is doing other happy-go-lucky stuff. It's so useful, I wouldn't mind purchasing one for my collection

Wow, that is really cool! It has always been a pain to sort things...that is a wonderfully-built mechanism. ^^

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground

And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived


On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground

Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight


I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained

And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you


Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away

And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone


Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands

Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey


I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in

I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away


slipped away...
