Here’s a collection of my Lego stuff. Hey, it has to go somewhere.
I grew up as a Meccano kid – back when that was awesome. We had some Lego, but I didn’t think much of it – it couldn’t do anything. It was mostly used to build stables for my sister’s PlayMobil horses. That same sister also had Fischertechnik, that was a lot better than Lego for making working vehicles.
Fast forward to 2016 when I’m getting interested in using Technic as part of my school’s Technology program. It’s no accident that the beams look like fat plastic Meccano; they are serving the same mechanical rules.
