    Default WOW > running LEGO car

    http://www.superawesomemicroproject.com

    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!

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

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