As you can see above, via Gizmodo, someone has decided to construct their own miniature Lego version of the G4 lamp-style iMac ! Unlike the L-Mac, it's not a real working Mac, but thanks to the fact that it uses a photo-display it can play, via a tv tuner, television shows and, of course, pictures and other videos!
Engadget says the following about this miniature Lego G4 "Junior" seen below:
"We tend to go a little weak in the knees for anything in miniature, so this iMac G4 "Junior" made with a 7-inch digital photo frame and a bunch of LEGOS sent us into hysterics. DIY-er Bjarne Tveskov says the creation is inspired by the film Luxo Jr., and though it has no functional G4 innards, it does do dislay basic, totally adorable smiley faces........."
Well, I tend to agree, it's certainly cute and even adorable. I've always been keen on miniatures, but still, I would much prefer the L-Mac that I originally posted on, or secondly the hackintosh Lego Mac Pro seen via Gizmodo below. This Lego computer was built from a PC that was hacked to run OS X. Like the L-Mac it can actually run OS X, so it's more than just skin-deep beauty were talking about.
No doubt, someone, somewhere, at sometime in the future will try their hand at building another Mac built out of not just Legos, but some other material as well. Legos are great and all, but I like to see someone build a Mac out of something else besides.
I don't know about you, but I think one of the smartest would be a Mac built entirely out of SMARTIES! Not only would a Smartie built Mac be a smart thing, but it would also automatically qualify for being one of the most delicious Mac's ever built and an absolute joy to recyle - via your mouth and stomach!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Thursday, April 30, 2009
