Synthtopia.com has run an article about one it’s readers, Berlin-based Daniel Mueller, who builds cases for his gear out of LEGO Technic bricks. He’s just completed his second such case and has the photos on Flickr showing his work. I’ve added the slideshow below.
Mueller builds the cases for himself and shares his creations as inspiration for others, but is not selling them. Each case is custom built for the particular piece of gear he’s enclosing. He chose LEGO because “It is very stable and lightweight… and because of the fact that it is modular… which means you can attach more parts or change the depth, height, length…”
Mueller’s work is an interesting use of LEGO Technic parts, but I’m still unclear WHY he’s doing this? Decoration? Testing? So he can use these without a rack? Anyway, let me know if you have any special builds like this that you’d like to showcase here.
