I wrote yesterday that our love of Legos may be the strongest proof of our innate desire to build stuff. Here’s an unbelievable tidbit of evidence in support of that theory: YouTube user horseattack made a printer from scratch using nothing but Legos, a felt tip pen and some garage electronics. According to the YouTube page, it prints Helvetica font at 75 dots per inch. As for “felt tip auto-capping,” horseattack says, “Nope, sorry.” For the sheer love of Legos, the printer features worker men on the moving parts so it looks like a busy factory floor. The project is open source, so stay tuned for the specs!
