Happy Birthday, LEGO!



We're honoring the 50th anniversary of the LEGO Brick on our home page today...

Larry and Sergey have always had a thing for LEGOS:

* A programmable plotter , Larry built out of LEGOS, years ago. He said the following on his Stanford webpage, while in grad school:
Legos and other lesser construction toys have been quite important to me. I have constructed numerous amazing contraptions out of Legos. I built a four foot wide inkjet printer out of Legos (and a few things from the hardware store and a bunch of electronics).

I attriubute (his typo, not mine) a great deal of my understanding and ability with mechanical devices to Legos and similar construction toys.
* Early hard drive enclosure (10, 4GB drives), encased in "faux" Duplos (see them in action)
Note: Sergey says they couldn't afford the authentic LEGO product!
* LEGO-infused photoshoot, as part of this TIME Mag cover story

  • Hmm, many fond memories of hours upon hours playing with Legos are flooding my mind....
