Watch the engineers (is that what you’d call them?) at LEGO make a life-size 2012 Ford Explorer model out of LEGO bricks in less than 90 seconds! OK, so there is time-lapse photography at play here. But still, we think it’s pretty incredible. A little something for the child-manufacturer in all of us!
OK, this isn’t strictly a manufacturing story, but we’re posting this video (below) because we think LEGO should team-up with primary schools around the country to develop training programs for kids.
How many 10-year-olds wouldn’t want to take this class?
It could be an ingenious way to recruit our next generation of engineering professionals.
This video was produced as part of a marketing campaign for the 2012 Ford Explorer in the US (actual car – not LEGO replica – pictured).
Features include a 2-litre, 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine – producing 240 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 270 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm – and a six-speed automatic transmission.
We especially liked this comment about the LEGO model posted yesterday on YouTube:
I saw them using glue. Cheaters!
We wonder if it was an industrial-grade adhesive?
