Man uses legos to create electronic printer

It’s a truth that 5-year-olds have known for a while now: with a lot of Legos and a little bit of know-how, a person can build just about anything. One guy took this philosophy to a whole new level by creating a printer with Legos and a felt tip pen. The printer took more than two weeks to complete, as it was designed, built and coded from scratch. Though after all this work it prints less than a page per minute, it’s still an entertaining invention. It’s not often a person gets to watch little men at work trying to get a paper printed. Just be sure to leave plenty of time ahead of deadline before using this machine.
