The Super Awesome Micro Project: A full sized Lego car, with an engine made from Lego that runs on air.

It is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing guy Steve Sammartino (twitter @sammartino) and Raul Oaida (twitter @rauloaida), a self-taught teenage technology genius from Romania who Steve met on the internet.

Steve crowd funded it via twitter with a single tweet:https://twitter.com/sammartino/status...

Super Awesome Micro Project Factoids:

- The engine is made from standard Lego pieces and runs on air!
- The engine has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.
- More than 500,000 LEGO pieces.
- Top speed around 20-30km (We drive it slow as are scared of giant lego explosion)
- Built in Romania and shipped to a secret location in Melbourne.
- It's a Hot Rod design, mainly because hot rods are cool.

F-ing amazing!

Pretty crazy! I assume it runs on *compressed* air, those must be tanks on either side.
