What I really want for Christmas

When my son was growing up, he loved building things withLego Taj Mahal Legos, a habit I also acquired (when I was allowed to help). A couple of years ago, I finished my first big Lego project the “Taj Mahal” – all 5900 plus pieces (took me 6 weeks), it was so much fun and I will never take it apart.

Then today, I came across the following Lego masterpiece (with thanks to the Register). This may well be the best thing by an Apple engineer this year (sorry iPhone 4 and iPad)  This is truly impressive, and as the person in the video states. “Pretty impressive for a bunch of plastic blocks”. I would love to see this as a kit.
