When are they gona make a lego plasma rifle? Why do these people keep thinking small.

/Taking over the world one plastic brick at a time.

Crosshair: When are they gona make a lego plasma rifle?

When they figure out how to make Legos that will withstand the heat bloom from the plasma burst. Don't you know anything?

True, but you can make legos out of ceramic. Just make some bricks out of old shuttle heat tiles. Those should work.

Okay then! I'd buy one ;)

With a few modifications, it could be sold as The Little Lego E-Meter for all the poor kids of scientologists.

my senior project was designing a 3D scanner and we had to use a turntable. the turntable would hold the object while a camera and a laser-line projector was placed in a still position. as the object rotated, the camera took pictures and eventually you would compile an array of photos. anyways, the reason why i'm mentioning all of this is because we had to use the lego mindstorm and program it to rotate the turntable and have everything synchronized. unfortunately, we didn't really get much of the project done because it was extremely hard and way too advnaced for what we were taught (luckily, i didn't fail).

we also had the option of using the same mindstorm piece constructed in a car and write a program that would parallel park a car.

Shuttle heat tiles are FAR too fragile. They withstand heat well, but nothing else. I have one (my grandmother knew somebody at NASA; got the thing 15+ years ago, and she has since died, so I have no idea the path it took to get to me). The thing can break and crumble very easily; I don't let just anybody touch it.

Unfortunately, they just wouldn't work for Lego bricks.

akula...you know you can just buy tiles from NASA for like 20 bucks.

I've seen those, bigtimmy- little promo packs of small squares.

Mine is full sized, complete with that yellow identifying number on it. White on the back, black on the front. I have never seen those up for sale.

I remember following these exact instructions 5 years ago with my middle school science teacher! Warning: dont go running with it on, you will sweat and get electrical burns (I have 2 small scars on one finger from it :). Very cool though, mindstorms rocks!
