    Watch Christina Stephens—a practicing occupational therapist and clinical researcher who lost her foot after a crush injury—build herself a working prosthetic leg out of Lego. She explained:
    "Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of legos. The joke's on you—I went home and did it. Please don't do this yourself, I don't want you to fall and get hurt!"

    What’s a pool party without an amphibious RC vehicle designed for delivering drinks on land or down to the deep end? 
    "With a push of a button, it transforms from sea craft to rugged, 4-wheeled land vehicle. While in land mode, the wheel wells can be used to hold up to four beverage cans. Plus, an on-board water cannon can blast a stream of water at any target. . ." Cool

    Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing. Gizmodo writes that “it reproduces the official $60 Lego 9493 X-Wing Fighter. But instead of being 560-pieces and a few inches long, this model uses more than five million pieces and it’s 11-feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. Just like the real X-Wing—and 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set.”
    Here are all details about the model:
    Contains 5,335,200 LEGO bricks
    Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)
    Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters
    Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters
    Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters
    32 builders spent 17,336 hours (about 4 months) to construct

    It took 32 Master LEGO builders approximately 4 months to build it to completion. LEGO unveiled this behemoth at Time Square in New York City.

    LEGO recently surprised a Massachusetts boy named James Groccia by sending him his dream toy, an Emerald Night Train set. The Emerald Night Train arrived just in time for James's 11th birthday. Here is the video that his dad shared of James opening that package.
    "Dear Sirs,
        My name is James Groccia and I am 10 years old. I have been playing with many Lego sets and products since I was about 4 years old. I have brick sets, Hero Factory, Creationary, Lunar Limo and more. I participate in a Lego Playgroup to help with my Social Skills (I have Asperger’s Syndrome) and I love playing with Legos at home (I play with them every day).
        A couple of years ago, I saw The Emerald Night Train set (K10194) and fell in love with it. I wanted it right away, but my parents said I had to save the money to get it. For two years I kept all the money I got for birthday and holiday gifts, some of my allowance and some money I got for participating in a research project. At last, a couple of months ago I had my $100 and was ready to buy the Lego set of my dreams!
        My mom started looking for it on line and could not find any. We checked the Lego store in our area and they didn’t have it either. I was completely crushed. You’ve stopped making it! It seems the only way to get one now is to pay $250 on Amazon or ebay, since now it is considered collectible.
        I got another Lego set, thinking I could forget about the Emerald Night, but every time I see it anywhere on line I get very sad and disappointed. I still want the Emerald Night so badly, but there are none to be found.
        Do you have any at your corporate headquarters? Perhaps I could get one that way? If you have any other ideas, I would be happy to hear them. I have never wanted a Lego set so badly ever in my life!
        Your most loyal Lego fan,
        James G. Groccia"
