A Printer That Prints Lego Structures

A little while ago we posted about a computer printer made entirely out of Legos. Although slow, noisy and required a Sharpie to print out pages, it was still a remarkable do-it-yourself project.

Well, here is something that beats it: the MakerLegoBot. The printer -- in lack of a better term -- follows a 3D CAD model and, all by itself, takes Lego pieces and builds, by picking and snapping the parts, a completed Lego item. Check out the time-lapse video here.
