Brick Bending: A New Twist on Lego Building

Internet Kickstarter

Jeff Sanders of Portland, Oregon, loves playing with Lego bricks. That, in itself, is nothing special. What is special is the particular way he plays with them:

Sanders discovered that if you put enough short bricks together, you can actually bend the shapes into curves without breaking them, creating circles, non-Euclidean squares, and even more fanciful shapes. More of his remarkable creations can be seen at his site,, or in his Kickstarter video below:

Ok, so the Kickstarter campaign seems to be largely an excuse to buy a nice camera and a bunch of Lego bricks — why didn’t I think of that? But, if you’d like to support Sanders’ project so he can make some nice how-to videos (and reveal some secrets about Brick Bending 2.0), visit his Kickstarter page and kick in a few bucks.

One more thing worth mentioning: Sanders also posted this video of a Lego labyrinth — featuring Hexbug Nanos, a GeekDad favorite!
