Wow is right. Crazy insane is another way to put it! If he needs a job I think that video could get him a mechanical design job anywhere!

,,,and not ONE loose ball, rolling on the wood floor!  Then, at the point where the robot arm was taking shots at the hoop (and hitting about 90%) I burst out laughing!!   ,,, So much fun, just to watch!  Maybe the designer needs some suggestions on how to turn a profit on this ,,,,

1. Break up the modules individually and document as lessons in Automation.

2. Sell it to Disney. (heard they're in a "buying" mood; just paid LucasFilms $4B for STARWARS,,,)

3. (who's got an idea-?)

That must've been some labor of love for someone to put the time, effort and painstaking detail into such an ambitious project. Who knew you could do something like this with Legos! I'm impressed.

When I watch this video, I immediately think of a game called Mousetrap that I had as a kid. Of course, this blows that away by miles, but we had some good times playing that game. 

Naperlou, I'd love to hear Lego's reaction to this project, too.

We have a game at home that is a bit like this, but nothing so elaborate.  I have been to Legoalnd in Bilund a couple of times, but this even outdoes what they have there.  I am sure the Lego people love this.  Think of how many blocks they sold.
