Lego is one of the most traditional toys today, with the first units produced in 1949. Known to people of several generations and nationalities, the product comes in hundreds of different formats, including several major franchise licenses such as: Harry PotterStar WarsJurassic WorldBatman and Indiana Jones.
This time, an engineer decided to renovate and build an electronic version of Lego. The parts have circuits and even a board that allows the toy to reproduce texts and even images.
The stuntman, who says he lives in New Zealand, introduces himself as “James Brown” on Mastodon. The result of the work is that the data processing starts rolling in the socket and produces “magic”. Check out the results posted on Twitter below:

On the social network, James Brown gave a little information about the procedure. He demonstrated the very small circuit attached to a 3D printed part. In the other Lego, a metal socket was inserted to allow energy to return to the construction.
The part where the images and texts are scrolled comes with an OLED screen. “The smallest I could find,” Brown said in response to a user on Mastodon.
By the start of this Monday (13), the engineer’s invention had garnered more than 1.7 million views on Twitter, with 83,000 likes and nearly 15,000 shares.
