These LEGO bricks are designed to teach kids Braille

LEGO blocks have a timeless appeal. With their ability to form complex structures that only the mind can think of, the blocks help teach children the basics of construction, symmetry, form, and even color. They now also teach children Braille.Its bumped upper texture provides quite literally the most obvious canvas for the braille language, allowing kids to, block by block, build sentences, but at the same time also read along as they go, both by running their fingers across the specially bumped...

Illegal Lego builds

I'm fascinated by this PDF, by Bram Lambrecht, describing the difference (with examples) between legal and illegal Lego builds. [via MeFi] In it, Lambrecht describes "the model that forever changed LEGO," an Audi TT that was difficult to put together, required the user to deform components for them to fit, and came with no instructions. As a direct result of this set, all models now produced by the LEGO Group must go through the Design Department. This ensures that nothing gets released without...

Frederik Andersen: Toronto Maple Leafs’ Best Player By Far

On Monday night, Frederik Andersen was amazing leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to yet another victory. Except for two goals by the Boston Bruins’ young star David Pastrnak, Andersen stopped 38 of 40 shots in Monday’s 4-2 win. That’s a lot of shots, and that’s a lot of saves – a save percentage of a nifty .950. But, as good as that seems, it is typical of how the 29-year-old Andersen has played this season. He is, without a doubt, the Maple Leafs’ MVP. And, one can make a case that he has b...
