The most exciting project since selling the MCG! The Super Awesome Micro Project.

I’ve been hanging to share this project for a long time. Discover how I helped fund a life size car made from Lego that’s powered by compressed air. Pretty cool huh? But before I get into the details, check out the video!

Super Awesome Micro Project Facts for you:

  • More than 500,000 LEGO pieces were used.
  • The car engine is made from standard Lego pieces and runs on air!
  • The engine has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.
  • Top speed around 20-30km
  • It was built in Romania and shipped to a secret location in suburban Melbourne.
  • It’s a Hot Rod design, mainly because hot rods are cool.

      Anything lego is awesome. There aren’t many toys that remain cool for decades. Engines runs on air, perhaps the future.
