The LEGO Life

LEGO, the ubiquitous building block that has been a playroom staple since 1932, has recently gained popularity with designers. From LEGO lamps to LEGO cameras, LEGO counters and LEGO couches, to an entire two story home build entire out of LEGO, it appears no one can get enough of LEGO.

A UK design company is offering shoppers storage solutions in the form of giant lego bricks, that can be snapped together for easy storage.

Industrial Designers everywhere are in love with this little Danish brick. This 3 pixel digital camera is available at ThinkGeek for $60, and gives new meaning to the term
“toy camera.”

Feeling Crafty? Order a LEGO mood lite kit from Gadget Brando and you can construct your very own LEGO night light.

LEGO lamps and boxes are all well and good, but what would it take to really live a LEGO life? BBC personality James May, one of the hosts of the popular series Top Gear, decided to take his love of LEGO to the limits, and then a bit beyond that. May commissioned a house built entirely out of LEGO as a piece for his TV series, James May’s Toy Stories. It took over 1,000 hard-working volunteers and over three million bricks to construct May’s LEGO home. Inside and out, everything in the house was constructed entirely out of LEGO. A home in his toy box, May definitely wins the prize for leading the LEGO life.
