Lego and Digital Blue are working together to create these gadgets which looks like  Lego bricks but are actually made from a solid piece of plastic. With prices ranging from $19 to $60, these gadgets are mainly targeted at kids, but I suspect some grown adults (like me) will be interested to get one of these cool gadgets as well.

These Lego gadgets are aimed at kids although I can see myself wanting one or two of these new Lego gadgets. Other Lego gadgets to be built are a PMP and a walkie talkie. Prices will range from $19 to $60 when launched.

SteamBot – A Robot Powered by Steam

Steambot is a robot that powered by steam.. no electricity is needed. What you need to make this thing move, to put water inside the robot by taking it’s head off, then slide in a tiny Esbit fire in to it’s belly which warms the water up. When steam is eventually created you spin the red wheel on it’s back which then sets the robot walking.
