My favorite toy as a child, before I got my Texas Instruments TI99-4A, was my Lego collection. I could spend hours playing with Legos. I always seemed to run out of the bricks I needed before I could complete some grand project I envisioned, but I had a blast anyway. I wish I had photos of the stuff I built back then. Sigh.
Legos seem to be an obsession with a lot of geeks on the web. There’s a great site called Brickshelf where people post photos of their constructions.
Someone recently posted what I think of as high conceptual art on Brickshelfa Wii constructed out of Legos. I loved the marriage of the two toys from two different periods of my life. I’ve reposted the photos below.
That’s geeky cool.
